Over a 3 day period in June, Aberdeen’s Northern Lights were forced to play second fiddle to an awesome demonstration of crushing and screening equipment. Terex Finlay held its largest ever Customer Open Event, at Jim Jamieson’s Quarry, Ellon near Aberdeen in Scotland, highlighting all of their new models for both Quarrying and Recycling applications.
With more than 300 End users and Dealers present from China, Australasia, Russia and CIS states, Africa, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas, this truly was an international affair. In total 13 different models were demonstrated and previewed in both quarry and recycling applications at Jim Jamieson’s, Ardlethen facility. The highlight of the demonstration was a single plant configuration consisting of 8 different models, featuring new Terex Finlay products introduced to date in 2013 and a number of new models that will be launched later in the year. Guests had the opportunity to view all the machines working and then inspect them close up with Terex Finlay staff on hand to explain the new product developments features and benefits.
A host of new recently launched models and upcoming product launches were previewed. In the main quarry demonstration the new models presented included the J-1480 jaw crusher with direct drive jaw crusher, 893 heavy duty screener, 684 2-deck inclined screener and 694+ Optidrive inclined screener, a diesel / electric dual power alternative to the ever popular 3 way split screen. Other models that featured as part of the train included the C-1550 cone crusher, J-1175 jaw crusher and the I-130RS impact crusher. The line-up was completed with the incorporation of the Terex Finlay C-1540 cone crusher. The particular model on display featured the new on-board side conveyor configuration that affords operators the opportunity to remove pre-screened fine material from the plant.
In the recycling demonstration area there were three models; J-1170 jaw crusher, NEW I-100RS impact crusher and the NEW Terex Finlay 883 with Spaleck screen. The J-1170 jaw crusher featured at the event was fitted with the hydraulic release chamber. The prototype of the I-100RS featured at the event is one of the prototypes that are currently testing in a range of applications in Europe before its launch in Q4, 2013. Both these machines were demonstrated working in recycling demolition and concrete waste. Accompanying the crushers in the recycling area was the 883 heavy duty screener with Spaleck screen box that was launched at Bauma 2013. The 883 Spaleck screener was demonstrated working in a demanding top soil application with a high moisture content.
