KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens has expanded its Vanguard product line with the more compact 2056 Vanguard Jaw in efforts to meet every producer’s operational needs.

The 2056 Vanguard Jaw Crusher features a 20 by 56 in. (50.8 by 142 cm) jaw crusher that is ideal for sand and gravel applications, and also excels in recycled concrete and mining applications, according to the manufacturer.

“The small gap provides an excellent nip angle at a tight closed-side-setting, making this the perfect jaw for applications where the material is minus-16 in.,” said Ron Griess, product manager of KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens. “Additionally, the crusher’s high reliability paired with best-in-class performance leads to a lower cost per ton over the lifetime of the crusher.”

Significant changes engineered into the new 2056 model include a new single cylinder auto-tension system, which offers less maintenance, increased reliability and reduced wear part consumption. The crusher’s new wear seat provides easy access and increased uptime, while a new corrugated stationary wedge increases the crusher gap and maintains a steep nip angle, providing less slippage, lowering the wear costs by providing longer jaw die life. Its flywheel retention system secures the flywheel in place, providing enhanced reliability and longevity.

The shaft and bearing assembly increases serviceability and reduces maintenance and rebuild cost, providing a lower total cost of ownership through the lifetime of the machine. The electric motor mount, v-belt drive and guarding are all integrated on the machine, providing an easy-to-install compact package for mobile or stationary applications. A large 1-¼ in. (3 cm) stroke and heavy-duty flywheels result in a lower fuel cost per ton and offer 33 percent more inertia than competitive models, according to the manufacturer.
