The Movax Lite

The New Movax designed for plastic sheet piling, timber posts, barrier posts and steel trench sheeting! The Movax, we have all been waiting for, and it was worth the wait!

The New Movax Lite Minimize

APE Plastic Piling is pleased to introduce into the UK another piling advancement - the New Movax Lite range of side driving vibrators. 

APE has for many years admired the Movax design of vibrator, and judging by the increasing frequency of imitations, we were not alone.   Movax is the original side driving vibrator, and manufacturers Unisto Oy, have now pushed the boundaries further designing a new Movax for trench sheeting and plastic piling.   Unisto was not simply content with producing a smaller version of the world famous SP range, but redesigned the unit and encompassed several design features that will eliminate the boundaries that existed for non-operated hire.  

For many years, the producers of the Movax, Unisto Oy from Finland, have been one of the the most prolific innovators in pile driving equipment.  In an Industry filled with "me-too" designs, they are a breath of fresh air with their novel and ingenious designs.

With new management, Unisto Oy from Finland have aggressively searched for growth markets, and like APE firmly believe that plastic sheet piling is a growth market. 

So hows does the ML range compare to the EMV range?

  • Faster fitting to a conventional excavator
  • Double bracket for quick hitch as standard
  • More power options for smaller excavators, 15, 10 and 5 tonnes force.
  • Handles piles from the side, reducing flexibility and reducing the need for mandrels.
  • Direct gripping of the pile, whether in pvc or timber.  EMV units are designed primarily for steel and so pile caps are needed to drive timber or PVC.  This enables a higher efficiency of energy transfer, subjecting the piles to real vibration.
  • Enables small excavators with limited reach to install long plastic piles.
  • NOT suitable or intended for use with Larsen type sheet piles, only cold form trench sheeting, plastic piling and timber piles!
How the ML Range differs from the Original SP Range of Movax Minimize

The most obvious difference between the ML and SP range is size.   The ML range is a smaller model, designed to fit smaller excavators.  However, the ML range is not simply a Mini Movax, as much more thought has gone into its design.

Within the SP range, substantial development was made to reduce inappropriate loading of the side clamps, through the use of an electronic control system that maintained the unit at the correct working angle.  This resulted in a requirement to have a dedicated base excavator, or a degree of customisation to the excavator.  This has been effectively eliminated, enabling the ML range of Movax units to be mounted on virtually any excavator within the appropriate size class, without modification to that machine. 

This is a vital parameter for the non-operated market and  substantially expands the number of suitable and available excavators,  Combined with the fact that the ML range simply needs two hoses to connect and one electronic cable, it enables faster fitting than even the basic EMV units!

Whilst a bottom clamp remains an option, the standard ML unit comes fitted with side clamps and a compactor plate base.  This format is ideally suited to the installation of plastic sheet piling, as proven by the number of times compactor plates have been used for installation. This reduces the cost of the unit and most importantly reduces the weight of the unit.

The ML design also has new clamp designs to enable direct clamping to plastic sheet piling without excessive force.  This adjustable clamp pressure can be set to suit the pile, be this steel or PVC or timber.
