Precisionscreen invited over 250 customers from Australia, the Pacific region and the UK to gain a first hand appreciation of new mobile crushing and screening equipment in action over a 3 day event at the Nucrush quarry in SE Queensland.
Sandvik Cone and Impact Crushers In Action
Sandvik is the world's foremost mobile crushing and screening solutions provider and is exclusively distributed in Australia by Precisionscreen. All eyes at the event turned to the Australian launch of the new Sandvik QH440 Mobile Cone Crusher as it was put through its paces. The QH440 is a heavy-duty, self contained tracked cone crusher designed for ease of mobility, for rapid set up time and transportation. Powered by a fuel-efficient 328 kW C-13 diesel engine, the QH440 incorporates a Sandvik CH440 cone crusher with a 14" direct drive wet clutch. The cone has a choice of concaves and eccentric bush settings which provides a CSS range of 8mm to 48mm allowing a feed size of up to 215mm and 388 TPH. The QH440 is capable of operating in the most hostile environments on earth – see photo, and its flexibility makes it one of the most versatile tracked cone crushers on the market to suit the most demanding mining application.
Not to be out done, the new Sandvik QI440 Mobile Impact Crusher was officially launched in Australia by Michael Brookshaw, EMEA Distributor Manager for Sandvik. It is a heavy-duty, track mounted impact crusher with an optional onboard re-circulating system, double screen boxes and double deck to allow two screened products to be produced along with an oversize. The oversize can be re-circulated back into the impactor, without re-handling, or the conveyor can be hydraulically rotated to produce a clean oversize product. Arguably the new Sandvik QI440 is set to become the definitive heavy duty tracked impact crusher with the capability of delivering an even greater return on its investment through its ability to produce accurately sized products.
Precisionscreen Triple Deck in Action
A special highlight of the event was the launch of the Australian designed and built Precisionscreen PS480T tracked horizontal triple deck screen. It is based on proven Precisionscreen innovation and technology and features a large 20x6ft screening area on each of the 3 decks, 4 hydraulically folding conveyors and hydraulically leveling undercarriage. The triple deck screen immediately generated a lot of interest and positive feedback from the assembled customers and is destined to make its mark at mining and quarrying sites around the world.
The event also provided the ideal opportunity for Precisionscreen to showcase its wide range of proven world-class products and support systems for the mining and quarrying industries. As part of its commitment to every customer the team at Precisionscreen works hard to deliver a tailored solution that achieves higher productivity and improved profitability. It is an on-going process of adding value that involves a close working partnership and open dialogue with each customer. The event certainly demonstrated this commitment and judging by the enthusiastic comments and feedback from their customers it will become an anticipated and regular event.
Just as the crushing and screening equipment on display worked as an integrated team, the success of the Open Day was achieved through a tremendous team effort involving the support of many within the industry including The Institute of Quarrying Australia, Hitachi (ZX470 excavator), John Deere (K644 & K744 wheel loaders) and Transmin Breakers & Attachments.
The last word goes to Paul Kerr, General Manager for Precisionscreen, "It is important for customers to see this type of equipment in action locally and discuss their specific application and issues on-site with not only general management but experienced operators and technical experts. The event certainly delivered the 'wow' factor to our customers and demonstrated the real commitment both Precisionscreen and Sandvik have to the mining and quarrying industries in Australia and beyond."
