Sandvik Construction will be taking advantage of Hillhead 2014 to highlight the total solutions product ranges, with many old favourites being shown. The Sandvik product offering provides solutions for virtually any application, and encompasses diverse business areas such as surface rock quarrying, excavation, tunnelling, demolition, recycling and civil engineering. The range of products developed to service these industries includes rock tools, drilling rigs, breakers, tunnelling equipment, crushing and screening machinery and bulk materials handling systems.
Additionally there are a number of UK and world product launches planned, such as the Sandvik CH540 – the new generation of compact cone crusher based on the HydroconeTM design. The CH540 combines the ability to produce excellent shaped products, in fewer crushing stages, thereby making it adaptable to ever-changing customer requirements. The new QA451 is the further development of the original S7, a triple-decked doublescreen that was originally launched 6 years ago. Whilst retaining many features of the S7 and subsequent QA450 with innovative new features – such as the hydraulic raise/lower, and slew on the fourth product conveyor – the QA451 is designed to work in tandem with primary, secondary or tertiary crushers, in order to produce the cleanest aggregates (Fig. 1).
Another new product is the Rammer 5011, which is designed using the same operating principle as first seen on the smaller 3288 and 4099 models. Suitable for carriers in the 43 to 80 ton operating weight category, the 5011 model weighs in at 4750 kg and slots neatly into the Rammer LargeRange line-up between the popular 4099 and the proven 7013 models to provide customers with a complete range of hammers. The Sandvik DI550 (Fig. 2) is a down-the-hole drilling rig featuring a 324 kW diesel engine and a 24.4 m3 compressor air flow at 24 bar pressure – making the machine a perfect match for the 5” DTH hammer. Through the launch of Optiagg Sandvik Construction now offers a new dimension in operational support for its CH430, CH440 and CH660 cone crusher models. Benefits are to be found from the computer modelling and analysis to identify the optimal configuration and setup, as well as the validation of the outcome. This results in the chamber setup being able to be fine-tuned according to the desired output, and the specific demands of the application.
Furthermore Sandvik plans live demonstrations of mobile crushing and screening equipment, such as the QJ341 jaw crusher feeding the QH441 – featuring the new hanging screen – and QS331 cone crusher respectively, as well as the QA331 screener. ⇥Stand J1
