A huge array of machines resplendent in the sunshine.
The HUB team were recently invited to attend a two-day event hosted by Breedon Northern Ltd at their Raisby Quarry at Coxhoe in County Durham.
Molson Finlay and Finlay Scotland in conjunction with Terex Finlay presented an impressive jaw-dropping nineteen Terex Finlay machines along with live demonstrations working in aggregate and recycling applications.
Alongside the Terex Finlay line up was an impressive selection of Kobelco excavators and Hyundai loading shovels from the Molson Groups 360-degree product portfolio, which positions them as a single source supply option for mobile and static plant and equipment.
With excavators ranging from 1t up on display, it was the Kobelco SK500LC-10 ME (Mass Excavation) specification machine that really caught the eye as it fed the Terex Finlay crushers. Thanks to its short arm configuration, it is a perfect fit for quarrying and bulk excavation projects.
Overall the event was a huge success and attended by hundreds of industry professionals who were given guided tours and full information on the glittering array of red machinery.
5th generation models:
Of particular note was the opportunity to view the 5th Generation models of the 693+ and 694+ inclined screens in advance of their global launch in Q4, 2019.
Alan Witherow – Terex Finlay - Product Manager, gave us the lowdown on the new 694+. “The 694+ has a number of new improvements – a more aggressive screen box with higher stroke and higher speeds ensures a bigger overall performance.
“We have also increased hydraulic power and added extra pumps as standard. Slowed down engine running speeds provide a more refined ‘sweet spot’ providing increased fuel efficiency. The simplification of folding on the new machine has facilitated a much faster breakdown for transport.”
Alan continued, “Also we have introduced a wider 20 x 5’7” screen variant on all three screen decks providing an extra 11-12% of screening area with the same on capacity including wider belts to accommodate the extra material flow.”
In addition, several new Terex Finlay machines were showcased including an I-120RS impact crusher (with grinding path, TC-100 conveyor, TR-75 radial conveyor, TF-75L low-level feeder and a TF-75H high-level feeder.
Terex|Finlay have developed a comprehensive range of robust, reliable and efficient bulk material handling and stockpiling solutions. With two new models on show a working demonstration of the new TR-75 radial conveyor on an asphalt application brought home the point how efficient these machines are in a wide range of applications. The mobility and flexibility of this machine clearly reduces or even eliminates the use of a wheel loader on site.
The conveyor range provides a number of benefits including reduced cost, site operating efficiency, environmental considerations, H&S improvements and a world-beating quality product. Comprising tracked mobile conveyors, high and low-level feeders and radial stockpilers each of the conveying products provides mobility and flexibility in a wide range of free-flowing bulk material applications including aggregates, ores, coal, woodchips, pellets, fertilizers, grains and truck loading.
OMNI by Terex System:
A working demonstration of the exciting new OMNI by Terex system on the main working train of machines illustrated that OMNI is a real-time tablet-based system that can improve job site safety and efficiency in crushing and screening operations. OMNI provides centralized access and enables the operator to watch, monitor and adjust working equipment from the safety of their cab.
T-Link a telematics management system was launched in January 2016. Originally with a three-year data subscription this has now been extended to seven years for all existing machines in the field with retrofit kits available.
This remote monitoring and fleet management system combines the machines' inbuilt CANbus control system with satellite positioning and telematics software. From the fleet management fundamentals of knowing the hours and location of your machine to sending machine specific alerts and tracking machine production, T-Link can help you remotely monitor and manage your Terex|Finlay fleet and grow your business.
