The new MB-HDS series can adapt to a range of different working environments and can select different types of materials with unprecedented simplicity and speed, without the need for a specialist or special training, according to the manufacturer.

From the creators of the world's first multi-functional jaw crusher comes the MB-HDS series, a new generation of shaft screeners, which were launched to the world during bauma 2019 in Germany.

"With this new machine we pushed our boundaries: it is packed with innovative features and technology. After years of testing, we are thrilled to launch it onto the market, so that it can benefit the professionals and companies for whom it has been created," said Diego Azzolin, production director at MB Crusher.

"The new MB-HDS series is radically different from all the other systems available on the market. It has been designed to be a real wild card: it can adapt to a range of different working environments and can select different types of materials with unprecedented simplicity and speed, without the need for a specialist or special training.

"Since 2001, when we patented our first crusher bucket, MB Crusher has evolved while remaining true to its purpose, which is to facilitate the work on site and to make it competitive, self-contained and profitable. What professionals, companies and users want is to be able to work continuously, without interruptions for maintenance and to facilitate the processing of materials, which can be very expensive.

"Over the years we have fulfilled these fundamental requirements, with innovative machines which turn waste materials into opportunities, a key element for many companies nowadays. Today we take a further step forward with the MB-HDS shaft screener line."

What is new about the MB-HDS shaft screener is its ability to adapt to different types of work and different materials, according to the manufacturer, who added that it is an ideal solution for those who have to process different kind of waste rubble, which can quickly be turned into re-usable and profitable material.

"We have created a machine which, alone, is capable of overcoming the various challenges faced every day by those involved in earth removal, excavation, demolition, recycling, agricultural activities and landscaping," said Azzolin.

"The new MB-HDS series selects and crushes excavation and demolition materials, asphalt, coal, organic materials, wood, bark and light plastics, also it enables products to be re-purposed immediately. It is possible to transform one material into another effortlessly any time you need to: this is the most important and useful innovation. In fact, with the MB-HDS screening bucket you can easily change the rotating shafts on site in complete safety: just one person can do this in a matter of minutes. Our patented system keeps the rotating supports in place, the rotors can easily be removed and re-positioned, while the angular alignment is kept in place.

"For us, having developed this new system represents a breakthrough, and for companies, whether they are big or small, it means having a construction site that is always working, and obtaining high-quality materials that can be re-used or sold, saving transport, dismantling and maintenance costs."

Until now this has been a complex operation, particularly because it is difficult to position the rotating shafts correctly (they must be synchronized with the power transmission systems and the rollers next to them) and because the support bearings must be replaced as well.

The MB-HDS screening bucket is available in four modelswith shafts suitable for the different material selection requirements and, as with all MB Crusher machines, they can be easily installed on excavators, diggers, mini diggers and loaders (from 5.5 to 38.5 tons [5 to 35 t]) in order to easily access and move around work sites, construction sites, areas containing large pipelines, towns or remote agricultural areas. Changing of the rotary shafts can be carried out anywhere, they have acentralised greasingsystem and all maintenance tools are located inside a compartment of the shafts screener. However, these are not the only innovations, because the new generation MB-HDS also takes care of the machine on which it is installed. An engineered automated shock-absorbing hydraulic system reduces the discharge so that the engine, transmission components and the machine boom do not suffer any damage. Preserving machinery life expectancy and reducing maintenance costs.

"Compact, reliable, sturdy and safe. The MB-HDS units are designed to be multi-purpose and highly versatile as well as being quieterto operate. Making possible for companies to use them in towns and historic centres, where there are different types of materials that need to be screened but both space and time are limited.The new system reduces noise levels by 40 percent when processing materials, in accordance with the regulations, thereby eliminating the need for exterior noise-control systems," Azzolin said.
