Terex Finlay, a global leader in design and manufacture of mobile crushing, screening and recycling solutions, has raised the curtain on 20 recent product launches and prototypes of models due to be released next year.
The launches were made at the 2014 Terex Finlay Business Conference held from September 30 to October 2 in London, UK, which was attended by more than 300 international dealers and customers from over 90 countries. The programme-packed event included a business conference, live product demonstrations and an end-user open day.
“This event provided an ideal platform to showcase the significant level of investment in new product development across our entire range,” comments Nigel Irvine, sales and marketing director. “An impressive display of 20 machines in one location physically demonstrated the breadth of our product portfolio.”
During the business conference, held at the Tower Hotel, London, delegates were introduced to Terex Finlay’s business strategy and key focus areas for growth in the next three years. Crucial to the company’s growth and expansion plans is an aggressive new product initiative and development strategy which is expected to see the business double its current product range in the same time period.
The product demonstration events were located at OCL Regenerations, Dartford, which is recognised as both experts and leaders in providing sustainable material solutions in southeast England.
There were three official new product launches at the conference: the J-1175 dual-power jaw crusher; C-1540 dual-power cone crusher; and 693+ inclined screen incorporating innovative Spaleck screen box.
Irvine says the dual-powered crushers are electrically driven, allowing users to run from electrical supply with the aim of giving significant savings on energy costs. These machines are also fitted with an onboard gen-set, enabling the operator to move and use the machine where there is no electric supply thus giving the flexibility and versatility of current standard models. These machines join the 694+ dual-powered inclined screener that was launched in 2013.
“These product launches mean that Terex Finlay can now offer operators a full mobile crushing and screening train that can be powered from mains electric and has the flexibility to run self-powered, if required,” says Irvine.
“In applications where a full train is powered by the onboard genset configuration, the crushers generate sufficient energy to enable the operator to run the 694+ dual-power inclined screen for ‘free’ when used in conjunction with the J-1175 dual power jaw crusher,” he adds.
The third product launch was the new 693+ inclined screen incorporating the Spaleck screening technology. This exclusive screen features a unique flip-flow top and bottom deck, guaranteeing first-class screening of materials including wet, moist, dry and mixed materials such as recycling and skip waste, fines material, compost, waste wood, timber, aggregates and ores.
“The official launch of these three machines follows a stringent and strenuous development cycle which has seen the machines tested and proven in challenging and diverse product applications across Western Europe,” says Irvine.
In addition to these new product launches, a large number of prototype machines were previewed. These included:
• J-1170AS: This new jaw crusher provides the flexibility of a crushing and screening plant on one machine. The aggressive machine features a detachable on-board sizing screen that gives operators the capability of producing two specification sized products. The machine was demonstrated working in a concrete recycling application and will be launched in the first quarter of next year.
• V-2050: This new vertical shaft impact crusher has been engineered for operators who require a high-specification product and large production tonnages. The machine incorporates the proven Canica V-2050 chamber with unique ‘dual flow’ configuration that will give operators high tonnage throughput with low production costs.
• C-1554: The new C-1554 cone crusher has been engineered for operators who require a highly aggressive cone with a high reduction ratio. The machine incorporates the renowned MVP450X screw cone chamber. The highly efficient cone chamber produces a higher percentage of sized products in a single pass, generating less fines material and therefore a more valuable product with increased profitability, Irvine points out.
• C-1545: This new cone crusher has been engineered for operators who require a medium-sized cone crusher with large throughput capacity whilst offering the flexibility of direct feeding or the ability to remove or bypass fines from the chamber via the on-board pre-screen module.
• 873 heavy-duty screen: This new heavy-duty screen has been engineered to work as a primary screen in quarry, demolition, C&D (construction and demolition) recycling, landfill material, topsoil, sand and gravel, coal, slag, ore processing and aggregate processing. This model will offer small and medium-sized operators an aggressive, flexible and class-leading machine with a wide range of available screening media configurations.
“It was our pleasure to welcome a huge contingent of our international distribution network to London for the 2014 Terex Finlay Business Conference,” says Irvine.
“During the conference, we outlined our aggressive new product road map, shared a clear vision of where we and our business partners should be positioned in the coming years and reinforced our commitment to provide world-class products, supported by exceptional levels of customer service. The conference stamped a solid signal of intent to grow our businesses together, for mutual success. This was an exceptional and an exciting event,” he concludes.
