RM 120X – second RM crusher at Thomas Bros. Excavations (Luton) Limited
RM NEXT: enhanced safety, user-friendliness & efficiency…
The RM Group once again sets new standards in user-friendliness with RM NEXT. As the first NEXT philosophy crusher, the RM 120X combines maximum safety with maximum performance and flexibility. The high throughput capacity combined with the new features already convinced several UK customers. One of them is Thomas Bros (Luton) Ltd.
Thomas Bros. Excavations (Luton) Limited specialise in bulk excavation, demolition, crushing, aggregates, and waste management services. They first purchased a Rubble Master crusher, the RM 90GO! in 2017 from RK6 to crush C&D material, glass, and aggregate from their wash plant.
The machine performed very well for them, but as the company grew, they needed something that could process more material and could handle recirc. At a demo they had a look at the newly introduced RM 120X. “We talked to some operators who already had experience in operating the machine. The feedback was fantastic. They were extremely happy with the throughput. Also, the traffic light system which enables the operators to focus on one aspect of the machine, rather than splitting time between the feeder and the belt were highly recommended,” explains Andrew Burton, business owner. Therefore, they decided to purchase the RM 120X as their second RM crusher from RK6.
RM 120X – first crusher within the RM NEXT philosophy
In a nutshell, RM NEXT focusses on four points. Extended service is one of them, which includes both the standard five-year warranty - an industry first - and the annual service.
Simplicity is ensured despite the additional features, equipment options and configurations that have been developed based on customer requirements. "Operating an RM 120X still involves only a few buttons. The built-in screen is only used to display information and has no sub-menus. We have received valuable input for this operating concept from our customers around the world, and the controls and display meet the specifications on job sites 100%," says Hanisch.
The RM Group has always been one of the pioneers in terms of safety in the past. Gerald Hanisch's vision has now become reality. With RM NEXT and the comprehensive operator-machine interface, the operator no longer has to enter the danger zone while operating the machine and can see light signals indicating both the status and current workload of the crusher from the excavator cab.
An additional focus was on the optimisation of material throughput. Here, the world market leader implements job-specific crushing equipment for the respective material and real-time analysis. This reduces running costs and increases turnover. Optimisation starts with the machine configuration, which is why 5 main application cases have been developed with the necessary equipment options. In addition, the performance indicator on the machine and the RM GO! SMART can be used to immediately detect and implement any potential improvement.
