A Mojave mirage, CONEXPO 2017 a shining glimpse into the materials processing future

Las Vegas, in Nevada’s Mojave Desert was the playground of the likes of Sammy Davis Jnr, Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. It is a city famed for its vibrant nightlife, casino’s and shows, but from the 7th to the 11th of March 2017 the best show in town will be CONEXPO, one of the world’s biggest construction and materials processing exhibitions.

Terex Finlay will be there showcasing its latest innovations in the materials processing machinery, alongside the other 2,500 + exhibitors at the 2,500,000 square foot exhibition site.

So if you are involved in the construction, aggregates and ready mixed concrete industries, including contractors, materials producers, and government and institutional sector officials, we hope to see you there! Visit the Terex Corporation stand at G3382.

One of the main machines being showcased is the I-140 impact crusher. Since its launch in 2016 the Terex Finlay I-140 has made a “real impact” on the global market place in the mid-sized category of impactor crushers with machines now working on every continent.

All Terex Finlay I-140 impactors are fitted as standard with the T-Link telematics system with a free three year data subscription. T-Link, is the companies remote monitoring and fleet management system that combines the machines’ inbuilt CANbus control system with satellite positioning and telematics software.

Terex® Finlay I-140 impact crusher.

 The Terex® Finlay I-140 direct drive ø1270mm x 1240mm (Ø50” x 48”) horizontal impact crusher with variable speed gives operators unprecedented levels of production in both recycling, mining and quarrying applications. The robust and proven Terex® CR032 chamber gives excellent reduction ratios and high consistency of product shape.

A significant engineering approach being introduced in this model is the material flow through the plant. The flow of material has been significantly improved by increasing the width of components as the material moves through the machine.

The machine features an advanced electronic control system that monitors and controls the speed of the rotor and regulates the heavy duty vibrating feeder (VGF) with integrated pre-screen to maintain a consistent feed of material into the impact chamber for optimal crushing conditions. Material from the integrated pre-screen can be diverted to a stock pile via the optional  by-pass conveyor, or it may join the crushed product on the main belt.  The standard hopper capacity of 6m³ (7.5yd³) places the machine at the forefront in this competitive market sector.

“The introduction of the Terex® Finlay I-140 represents a significant step change in our family of impact crushers. Our field test results of extensive testing have recorded significant productivity increases depending on the application, over the model that it replaces. The enhanced material flow process of the plant represents a significant step change to our engineering ethos and in due course will be extended to encompass our range of impact crushers” said Alan Witherow, Product Manager.

Key Features:

  • The ease of material flow through the machine has greatly improved with each component of the machine increasing in width as the material moves through the machine.
  • Fully hydraulic apron setting assist provides convenient and efficient adjustment of the aprons.
  • Heavy duty vibrating feeder (VGF) with integrated prescreen removes dirt fines and sizes bypass material for reprocessing.
  • Optional under crusher vibratory plate feeder with wear resistant liners aids material discharge flow.
