Rockster at BaumaPublished 24/6, 2016 at 10:59
The Rockster R1100S impact crusher was among the many products the Austrian company displayed at Bauma. Rockster also hosted a live demonstration of an R900 impactor with screen box and return belt on a nearby construction site crushing demolition debris to a size of 0-22mm.
One of the first R1100S machines was recently purchased by Polixmair Aufbereitungstechnik from Gmunden, Austria. The R1100S was sent to its first job directly after Bauma working on asphalt recycling and processing natural stone.
“With the new R1100S we are fully up to date with the latest technical state of the art machinery. The intuitive control display with the quick start function and the continuous, fully hydraulic gap adjustment are labour saving features and help us to save time,” said Polixmair Aufbereitungstechnik chief executive Ferdinand Polixmar. “The fact that the screen box can be lowered to the ground facilitates the change of screening meshes and any maintenance works. Also with the remote control, we have more possibilities now, as for example adjusting the crusher speed and the speed of the vibration feeder. So the excavator operator has the opportunity to intervene quickly in the crushing process.”
“It was a surprisingly strong Bauma, which exceeded our expectations,” said Rockster chief executive Wolfgang Kormann. “Due to the growing European bureaucracy and the loss of markets, especially in southern Europe, we did not expect this amount of prospective customers. Encouraging was the response of visitors who used the fair to compare different products, as they commended the benefits of our technology. Especially our R1100S, equipped with the latest refinements, was convincing many visitors and we obtained several orders for this crushing plant at the fair. Once again, it was astonishing how international the Bauma really is, we had potential customers even from less known countries such as the Tuamotu Islands, New Caledonia and Kiribati at our booth.”
