Products and virtual reality from RocksterPublished 28/6, 2019 at 12:28
At the bauma 2019, Rockster not only presented its range of products, but also offered a virtual reality tour of one if its crushers at its stand.
As well as its jaw and impact crushers, the Rockster portfolio now includes scalpers and finishing screens, drum screens, stackers and feeder conveyors, with most machines being available with the latest Stage V engines. In order to show its variety of equipment, the company exhibited the R1100DS impact crusher with a screening system and new air blower, the scalping screen RSS410 and the stacker RST23 at bauma.
Rockster’s new ‘Machine Monitoring System’ (MMS), was also launched at bauma, with Rockster sales manager, Norbert Feichtinger, seeing benefits in not only providing a simpler overview of the machinery but also in the improved control of machine utilisation, and in monitoring the handling of the machine. “Due to the possibility of the MMS to check the crusher speed, crusher load, gap setting and vibrating speed even in real time, you can quickly see if there is any need for optimisation in machine handling. Both parties, the owner of the machine as well as the manufacturer, can react immediately and therefor reduce wear, increase throughput and optimise the crushing result. Quick access to location data, operating hours or fuel consumption provides valuable services especially in the rental business.”
Rockster also offered a virtual reality experience at the show, enabling visitor to ‘enter a crusher’, in this case, its latest impact crusher, the R1000S. Equipped with VR glasses and a controller, interested visitors were allowed to ‘beam in’ front, behind, on or even into the crusher, raise and lower the magnetic separator or screen box, open the crusher chamber, change blow bars and much more. This provided a unique perspective both from outside and inside the crusher.
