Strong plants for a strong market
2024 is an important year for SBM Mineral Processing in the UK market: "We can now look back on a good two years of very successful cooperation with our distribution partners Banner Contracts and Orba Group. Within a brief period of time, they have really taken our fully hybrid crusher technology forward in all major regions, but above all in all relevant industries and applications–from mining, quarrying, and recycling to construction," says SBM Regional Sales Manager Norbert Dieplinger.
"We are currently talking to other potential dealers and are of course looking forward to the UK launch of our flagship REMAX 600 at the Hillhead Quarry Show in June."
An important part of the success of the track-mounted JAWMAX® jaw crushers and REMAX impact crushers is the consistent implementation of the diesel-electric drive concept that has made SBM a hybrid pioneer for over 40 years.
All twelve models, with operating weights from just under 50,000 to350,000 lbs. (23.0-160.0 tonnes), are at the top of their classes in terms of crusher size, production capacity and operating costs, without compromising flexibility of operation on site or economic transport to changing locations.
This is particularly evident in the new flagship SBM REMAX 600, which went into series production at the end of last year. With an operating weight of only around 80 tonnes, its impact crusher (inlet opening: 1380 x 1000 mm (W x H) produces a maximum of 600 t/h, defining a completely new performance segment in mobile crushing.
The plant offers real added value with its complete package of standard equipment plus options that provide a variety of high-quality final aggregate fractions. In addition to standard active pre-screening via a double-deck circular vibratory screen, there are three optional circular vibratory product screens (1-, 2-, 3-deck) available.
A side further options all screening modules allow the recirculation of oversized material; highly cantilevered discharge conveyors guarantee for large product stockpiles. Even fully equipped, the plant can be transported in one piece and set up quickly without the need for any auxiliary equipment.
In operation, the REMAX 600, like all SBM crushers, features low fuel consumption thanks to its combined drive of an EU-V Cummins diesel engine and520 kVA generator. As an option, the plant can also be operated fully electrically from the mains, with the plug-in switch and all plant functions managed by the SBM CRUSH CONTROL. The intuitive system actively supports the machine operator–even at maximum capacity and with full integration of all production screens, uninterrupted one-man operation is guaranteed with optimised consumption data and low environmental impact (carbon, dust, noise). CRUSH CONTROL, the integration of new AI-based real-time analyses and satellite-based data exchange are also at the heart of the "Autonomous Crushing" project that SBM is driving forward on the basis of the REMAX 600. "We will also be providing detailed information on this at the Hillhead Show," says Norbert Dieplinger, looking ahead to this year's industry highlight.
