Rubble Master launches rental concept
The Austrian manufacturer of compact mobile recycling and screening units, Rubble Master, used Intermat to launch a new concept. With the implementation of RM Rental, Rubble Master presents itself as always as a pioneer. The company began to set up a rental fleet ten years ago in Austria.
The success shows the decision was right: RM rental fleets have become established not only in Austria, Switzerland and France, but also in other European countries. RM Rental, like the RM umbrella brand, stands for simple and profitable solutions.
MB unveils a screening bucket for loaders
The Italian crushing and screening bucket manufacturer MB used Intermat to launch a screening bucket for loaders. Weighing 450kg and boasting a 0.5m3 bucket capacity, the MB LS-140 fits carriers with an operating weight of 2.6t upwards. Designed for screening of natural materials, before and after the crushing phase, it allows users to reduce crushing times by up to 60%.
Initially wary about participating in the show, MB ended up quite happy with its outcome. The high level of interest from visitors more than compensated for a slight drop in numbers. Apart from its inside booth, MB had an outside area to demonstrate the capabilities of its equipment. Among them was the BF90.3 model, the first crusher bucket manufactured and patented by MB in 2001. The BF90.3 is suitable for excavators weighing over 20t. Despite its compact dimensions, the bucket performs at a productivity rate up to 40m3/h. This was joined by the MB-S18 screening bucket designed for 20t to 35t excavators and the MB-L160 crusher bucket for skid steers and backhoe loaders. MB is a family-owned company, with the headquarters in Fara Vicentino, Italy and six subsidiaries in different corners of the world. It is one of the global leaders in mobile recycling and it exports to over 150 countries.
A new Warrior in Powerscreen ranks
Powerscreen showed the most recent addition to the Warrior mobile screening product family, the compact Warrior 600 model. With this screen, the Warrior range now counts six machines to meet a variety of customer requirements. The Warrior 600 screen features the option of conversion from three-way split mode to two-way split mode. It also boasts a screenbox capable of 6g of acceleration. The high-strength, high amplitude, two-bearing screenbox helps easy handling and separation of large items from material fines in recycling tasks, such as soils from tree stumps and logs, fines and rock from overburden and blasted rock. Other user benefits include a rapid set-up time and ease of operation, aided by hydraulic folding side conveyors, rigid feed hopper sides and two speed tracks.
McCloskey International shows full product range
Canada-based McCloskey International has been designing and manufacturing equipment for mining, construction, demolition, road building and recycling operations since 1985. At Intermat the company rolled out all four product lines. These were represented by the J45R and J40 jaw crushers, the 516RT trommel, the R70 screener and the ST80T V-Bin stacker. The new jaw crusher J45R combines the productivity of the 1143mm x 686mm single toggle jaw with a high energy screenbox and a recirculating conveyor system to create a full crushing, screening and recirculating system.
Also on display was the 516RT tracked trommel for enhanced mobility as well as the R105 scalping screener. In the demonstration area the R70 heavy-duty scalping screener feeding the J40 jaw crusher and the ST80T V-Bin stacking conveyor for stockpiling the material were busy at work. According to McCloskey international sales development manager Julie Andras, the show was well attended despite the absence of some key players. The J45R and J40 jaw crushers were the biggest crowd-drawers, and both were sold by the end of the show.
A hybrid impact crusher from Rockster Recycler
Rockster Recycler used Intermat to demonstrate a hybrid impact crusher it had recently developed for French road-building contractor Eurovia. Based on the proven R1100D model, the new R1100De features the patented Duplex system that allows switching between the jaw and impact crusher modes within a few hours.
To enhance the machine’s performance, Rockster, in cooperation with a Finnish components manufacturer, developed a hybrid engine configuration involving an electric motor. Unlike diesel engines, electric motors can deliver full torque within milliseconds, handle load cycles more efficiently and allow a continuous, constant speed of the crushing unit regardless of the engine’s loads. As electricity might not be readily available on recycling sites, the diesel engine is used to drive the generator for the electric motor. The permanent magnet technology reduces energy consumption and increases the engine’s and the generator’s performance. The condensers cushion all load peaks. Eurovia’s France operations manager Laurent Perraguin has testified to the efficiency of the hybrid configuration by saying that productivity went up by almost 30% to 450t/h while fuel consumption was reduced by the same amount.
