Cams’ UTM 1500-3 mobile crushing and recycling plant has now complied with the US safety regulations. This is among the first products developed by the Italian company more than 20 years ago, with the US and Canadian compliant version being recently introduced.
Cams’ products are entirely Italian made since the company began in 1964, with the company today a major manufacturer of aggregates recycling equipment. It has nine separate product ranges comprising of 24 different models. It also offers bespoke solutions and customisation, providing a choice of plants that shred, screen and recycle asphalt, construction and demolition waste, glass and aggregates.
Conexpo/Conagg 2020 will provide an opportunity for Cams to further introduce its products and technology to North America. Thanks to cooperation which began more than one year ago with the American company GrinderCrusherScreen, Cams will exhibit the UTM 1500-3 that follows US standards. The UTM 1500-3 is equipped with a John Deere 208kW engine, providing up to 200tph of productivity. Despite the power of the shredder, it is compact and light weight for easy road and container transportation.
The Italian company has developed a particular system of hydraulic fingers that helps to reduce large sized material and avoid the loss of material from the hopper during processing. This also enables a greater volume of material to be recycled. This feature has a Canadian patent (CA3008568) and a USA published patent (US2018345293).
With the availability of ‘Industry 4.0’ enabling technologies and the internet, Cams plants are now ‘smart’ and interconnected through two way communication between the machine and the job site. They are also equipped with a GPS system meaning that it is possible to check location, machine status and to run the diagnostics remotely from a PC or mobile App. Additional features found on of the new version of the machine include a multi-colour lighting system that provides operational status indication of the plant. Cams plants are designed for efficiency, minimising negative environment impact, using hybrid technology to reduce fuel consumption.
