Unleashing the ?beasts?: new products debut at Hillhead

The C-1540 direct drive cone crusher, the 674 triple-deck inclined screen and the new I-140RS impact crusher (ahead of its launch in the third quarter of 2016) are being released at the event.

“We are looking forward to the upcoming Hillhead 2016,” said Terex Finlay’s sales and marketing director Nigel Irvine. “We return to the showcase event for our industry with even more exciting new product introductions and a fantastic story to tell our customers.

“In total, we will have 12 machines on display in what will be our largest ever presence at Hillhead. Literally every machine on display at the show is a new product introduction, has been recently launched or is a preview of another new model.”

The full line-up will comprise working models of the C-1554 cone crusher and the I-140RS impact crusher in the main working area in front of the booth. The J-1170AS jaw crusher and the new 873 Spaleck recycling screen will be located in the recycling areas. The booth/static display will feature the new I-140 impact crusher (which premiered at the 2016 Bauma exhibition in Munich, Germany, in April), the new C-1540 and C-1545 cone crushers, and the J-1170 and J-960 jaw crushers.

Also occupying the static display will be the new, small- to mid-size 674 inclined screen, which has been developed to appeal to the contract crusher and small scale owner/operator looking to produce four specification products from the one platform. It will be joined by the large volume 883+ heavy-duty screen.

‘Crusher alley’ demonstration

Terex Finlay is “unleashing the beasts” in the main working area – better known as “Crusher Alley” – in the form of the J-1480 and the C-1554. These two machines have consistently produced up to 800 tonnes per hour in the field, and their prowess will be put to the test in live demonstrations.

{{image2-a:r-w:200}}The new I-140RS will also be put to work in Crusher Alley. It features an on-board detachable sizing screen and recirculation conveyor for producing spec product. For applications not requiring use of the impactor’s recirculation system, the conveyor can be slewed into position and the I-140RS can be used as a stockpile conveyor. In this configuration the machine can produce three products from one platform.

In the recycling work areas the J-1170AS and new 873 Spaleck will be hard at work. The J-1170AS was introduced at Hillhead 2014 before its launch in 2015. This machine has been well received by contract crushers and owners/operators, as it provides the flexibility of a crushing and screening plant on one platform for use in mining and recycling applications. The detachable on-board sizing screen can be quickly removed, allowing the operator to use it as a standard unit, depending on the application. 

The 873 Spaleck recycling screen is the latest model developed in partnership with Spaleck Group. Launched in late 2015, this unit has gained positive traction in the global market, particularly where machine movement from site to site is complicated. The machine still provides impressive material processing capabilities in aggregates, sand and gravel, construction, and demolition and recycling applications, but from a more compact transport envelope to the 883+ model.

The top-deck 3D screening segments and bottom-deck flip-flow technology are major innovations on this machine, enabling it to continue running even in wet, difficult and sticky applications.

“We have seen the power of ‘listening to our customers’ and what a culture of positive leadership and collaboration can accomplish,” said Paul O’Donnell, Terex Finlay’s global business line director. “All of us are committed to delivering innovations that will deliver growth.”

Hillhead 2016 will be at the Hillhead Quarry in Buxton, Derbyshire, UK, from 28 to 30 June.

In Australia, Terex Finlay mobile plant and related products are available through Finlay Screening & Crushing Systems in the eastern states, including South Australia and Tasmania, and through OPS Screening & Crushing Equipment in Western Australia and the Northern Territory.
