Founded in 1991, Simex  has continued to develop new attachments suitable for various fields of application: dozens of patents applicable to roadworks, infrastructures and utilities, as well as for demolitions, constructions and quarrying.

The year 2020 was marked by numerous challenges, some more difficult than others, which Simex boldly addressed by investing further in facilities and logistics, increasing its R&D efforts and, last but not least, focusing on developing its human capital. Today, 30 years since its inception, Simex boasts a state-of-the-art production department, capable of producing up to 500 units per month during peak demand periods

Simex continuous cutter heads are actually drum cutters with a central chain. This system allows the whole width of the attachment to cut without breaks at center or side footprints. They are used for finishing flat surfaces and trenches

 Simex has 4 models in this range: TFC 50 and TFC 100 are for mini-excavators from 1,2 and 4,5 tons, while TFC 400 and TFC 600 are for 6–12 tons excavators. These patented cutter heads with continuous cutting are quiet in the work area and do not intrude on the surrounding space. They are often used for crushing roots and tree trunks, milling asphalt, concrete and plasters. Thanks to the lateral disk addition, there is a control on removed layers.
Simex TFC 400, with its 18.5 kN of cutting force, is an attachment that can excavate small trenches for utility installation, profile concrete surfaces and crush tree trunks in agricultural-forestry applications. Their relatively small size allows the user to have control even when working in tight spaces, for example when demolishing small foundations.

Simex TFC 600 is designed to be used on heavier applications. With a cutting force of 24.5 kN, this attachment can mill deteriorated layers of concrete structures, such as sidewalls and tunnel vaults, and containment walls in road and highway settings. TFC 600 can be used also in urban settings to perform trenching for utilities installation, branches of sewer systems or aqueducts.

Designed for separating different-sized materials on the worksite, Simex VSE screening buckets are characterized by their easy loading and simple operation.

This screening bucket allows the rapid and instant adjustment of the output size of the screened material in few seconds via a simple control in the cabin. The operator is able to screen the material according to his operating needs, hydraulically moving closer and further the shafts, with a travel adjustment of +/- 40 mm.

The specific shape of the tools allows an intense whirling of the material to be screened, boosting overall productivity. To further increase performance, Simex also offers specially designed tools for different applications. Tool replacement is rapid and requires no disassembly of shafts.

Simex VSE range includes 4 buckets, VSE 10-20-30-40, for excavators from 8 to 45 tons.

Simex PL, self-levelling road planers, are designed for removing the entire layer of asphalt or cement in preparation for trenching or for milling damaged sections for later resurfacing.

Simex RW and T, wheel saws, provide slots and trenches on hard material such as asphalt or concrete, for laying underground utilities or fibre optics.
