A highlight was the unveiling of two new products: Powerscreen Warrior 1200 Hybrid Screen and Terex Washing Systems FM200 Double Wash. Powerscreen Warrior 1200 Hybrid Screen is a Dual-Powered machine that can also run on electricity, if available on-site. It has a compact 12ft scalping screen with a highly aggressive screen box, making it suitable for unique applications such as Biomining, River gravel, Blasted Material, Coal, Slag, and Asphalt Screening.

The Terex Washing Systems FM200 Double Wash is an integrated washing solution designed to cater to a wide range of feed material; it can produce up to three washed and sized products. It can maximize slit removal by washing it twice through multiple cyclones, and ultimately maximize recovery so that more saleable material is produced. It is pre-wired and pre-plumbed for quick installation and comes with customized screen options to suit various applications.

A special feature of TEXCON 2023 was the Innovation Centre, where attendees witnessed the latest technological developments by Terex and its various brands. Within the Innovation Centre, Terex unveiled the ACE5, an advanced Cone Control system that delivers notable benefits such as improved aggregate productivity and enhanced quality. Customers also enjoyed learning about various new types of screening media and advancements coming from Franna in terms of VR. The Innovation Centre was also a platform to showcase Terex engineering capabilities, online parts ordering system, and telematics, all of which were found to be engaging and informative.

The event created a stir amongst the company’s customers and visitors with Terex India’s announcement of expansions, notably that the Hosur facility is set to begin production of rough terrain and tower cranes.

Said Kieran Hegarty, “We see a growing potential for rough terrain and will therefore start their production at our Hosur facility, initially of small capacity cranes and will gradually introduce higher capacity models. The company has already developed two prototypes of its rough terrain cranes and once production starts, the cranes will be ready for launch in the first quarter of 2024.”

In view of India’s fast developing infrastructure, Terex will introduce concreting solutions as well, more specifically its concrete transit mixers. “A unique feature of our concrete transit mixers is their front discharge system as opposed to the rear discharge system present in the transit mixers of other manufacturers,” said Hegarty.

He also informed that the company has recently entered the waste recycling business and will be introducing new variants of electric hybrid machines for crushing and screening.

Said Jaideep Shekhar, “We aim to reinforce our customer relations through events like TEXCON. We stand committed to supporting them with high-quality products across various verticals and provide timely technical support in terms of parts and maintenance to ensure higher availability of our machines. We will continue our focus on safety in our machines and during production.

He added, “We will also continue to provide aftermarket support to our customers so that their machines have a longer lifespan. When we started refurbishment of crushing and screening units in 2019, KCC was one of our major customers. We also encourage optimal utilization of our machines by training the machine operators of our customers and dealers.”

About 40% of the machines manufactured at Terex India’s Hosur plant are exported globally including to USA and Europe. “The facility will complete manufacturing of 1000 units by 2023 end, of which 50% will be electric since we are aiming towards reducing our carbon footprint both during the production and usage of our machines,” said Shekhar.
