They both benefit from class leading features like improved hydraulic efficiency and a vibration dampened tierods (VIDAT) system to decrease downtime. A new operating principle allows them to be tailored to suit specific individual applications and individual carriers through the ability to easily modify stroke length, blow energy and Idle Blow Protector. Both breakers have simplified and more robust hydraulics featuring less valves and greater back-pressure tolerance.
Sandvik also launched its innovative MT520 100 tonne roadheader based on the concept of easily exchangeable optional modules, enabling the MT520 basic machine to be adapted to a wide variety of applications. The main focus in the development of the machine was increased productivity and safety, with a new shock-absorber-mounted cabin and active stabilization to minimize cutting vibrations.
In addition, Sandvik introduced its QI240 impact crusher developed for recycling of construction material and is ideal for smaller quarries where space and machine manoeuvrability are at a premium, and superb product shape and high levels of production are essential.
The machine is fitted with a pre-screen to ensure maximum scalping ability to prevent any undersize material passing through the impactor to maximize throughput and reduce wear costs. With a choice of grizzly or punch-plate top and mesh bottom, the QI240 also has the flexibility to suit any application.
Other than these, Sandvik unveiled a new WR modular screening media product for aggregate processing, a new generation of down-the-hole- drill rigs DI550, new CV200-series VSI crushers and advanced version of the productivity service SanRemo, Sandvik remote monitoring.
