RM Group launches new product philosophy into series productionPublished 2/12, 2020 at 15:03
Following the presentation of a prototype at bauma in Munich in 2019, RM Group is now launching production based on its new product philosophy in October. The RM 120X is the first crusher to be implemented in the series, with a screener set to follow in 2021.
“With this philosophy we are once again setting standards in user friendliness,” says Gerald Hanisch, founder and owner of Rubble Master. As the first ‘Next’ philosophy crusher, the RM 120X combines enhanced safety with maximum performance and flexibility. However, the company will remain true to its proven service and intuitive ‘RM GO!’ operation concept, which it will continue to expand.
Four point product philosophy
RM Next focusses on four elements including extended service, which includes both the standard five year warranty and annual service. Simplicity is ensured with equipment options and configurations being developed based on customer requirements. “Operating an RM 120X still involves only a few buttons. The built in screen is only used to display information and has no sub menus. We have received valuable input for this operating concept from our customers around the world,” says Hanisch.
Placing a continued emphasis on safety, the RM Next has a comprehensive operator-machine interface, meaning that the operator no longer has to enter the ‘danger zone’ while operating. An additional focus is on the optimisation of material throughput with job specific crushing equipment for respective materials and real time analysis. This reduces running costs and increases turnover. Optimisation starts with the machine configuration, with five main application cases having been developed with the necessary equipment options as well as a performance indicator on the machine and the ‘RM GO! Smart’ to detect and implement any improvements.
“When we started developing RM Next, we always had our entire product range in mind. In future, an important role will be played by networking different products in operation at the same job site. However, we can only make this happen if all the products work according to the same philosophy,” explains Hanisch. This means intensive work is currently underway to network RM machines that work together with screen throughput being able to be adjusted in future to match the utilisation of the crusher. Machines ‘downstream’ from the crusher can also stop automatically if the crusher is currently not processing any material. These optimisations are designed to increase efficiency and save running costs.
