Sandvik plans world product launches for Hillhead 2014

World Cement,

Sandvik ConstructionSandvik Construction will be taking advantage of Hillhead 2014 (stand J1) to highlight the total solutions product ranges, with many old favourites being shown. Additionally, there are a number of UK and world product launches planned, as well as live demonstrations of mobile crushing and screening equipment.


The Sandvik product offering provides solutions for virtually any application, and encompasses such diverse businesses areas as surface rock quarrying, excavation, tunnelling, demolition, recycling and civil engineering. The range of products developed to service these industries includes rock tools, drilling rigs, breakers, tunnelling equipment, crushing and screening machinery and bulk materials handling systems.

Sandvik will be aiming to use the opportunity presented by an exhibition of such importance to the global quarrying and construction industry to emphasise areas of expertise and service that transcend the traditional supplier-customer dynamic. This is due to the fact that Hillhead is seen as the perfect place to introduce new solutions-based equipment. Hence Sandvik Construction will also introduce the very latest developments from the world leading product ranges.

New and innovative equipment that will be shown includes:

  • Stationary crushing equipment – new CH540:
    The new generation of compact cone crusher from Sandvik provides customers with optimum performance and good cubical shape, whilst ensuring the lowest operating cost/t for a wide range of materials and applications. The all new patented Sandvik CH540 is based on the proven HYDROCONE TM design, with the CH540 combining the ability to produce excellent shaped products, in fewer crushing stages, thereby making it adaptable to ever-changing customer requirements.
  • Mobile crushers and screens – new QA451:
    The new QA451 is the latest incarnation of the original S7, the world’s first and only triple-decked Doublescreen that was originally launched six years ago. Whilst retaining many features of the S7 and subsequent QA450, the Premium QA451 improves on the productivity of its iconic predecessors, as well as incorporating many further refinements that enhance the users’ experience. With innovative new features, such as the hydraulic raise/lower, and slew on the fourth product conveyor, the QA451 is designed to work in tandem with primary, secondary or tertiary crushers, in order to produce the cleanest aggregates with ease.
  • Breakers – new Rammer 5011:
    Backed by Rammer’s exclusive Lifetime Warranty, the new Rammer 5011 is designed using the same operating principle as first seen on the smaller 3288 and 4099 models. This revolutionary operating principle allows these hammers to be purpose-matched to specific applications for increased productivity and usability. Suitable for carriers in the 43 – 80 t (94800 – 176400 lb.) operating weight category, the 5011 model weighs in at 4750 kg (10470 lb.) and slots neatly into the Rammer Large Range line-up between the popular 4099 and the proven 7013 models to provide customers with a complete range of hammers.
  • Drill rigs – DI550 drill rig:
    The Sandvik DI550 is a down-the-hole drilling rig featuring a 324 kW diesel engine and a 24.4 m3 compressor air flow at 24 bar pressure – making the machine a good match for the 5 in. DTH hammer. This careful match of power and hammer size makes the rig uniquely productive, whilst keeping fuel consumption and operating costs as low as possible. Cost effective machine performance is further enhanced by other advanced features such as active diesel RPM control, optimised diesel RPM level during drilling and active control of compressor running temperature.
  • Tools and consumables – new Optiagg:
    Through the launch of Optiagg Sandvik Construction now offers a new dimension in operational support for its CH430, CH440 and CH660 cone crusher models. As well as complete redesign of the mantle to deliver greater efficiency, the real benefits are to be found from the computer modelling and analysis, as they provide a scientific approach that secures more of the most valuable fractions without costly trial and error. Optiagg takes the guesswork out of optimising crusher performance as there is a step-by-step process that includes analysis of the current conditions, modelling to identify the optimal configuration and setup, as well as the validation of the outcome. This results in the chamber setup being able to be fine-tuned according to the desired output, and the specific demands of the application.

This year’s show will see Sandvik demonstrating examples from the mobile crushing and screening range, and will also see the launch of two new products which will be shown working for the very first time. At the demonstration area, the World product launch of the QJ341 feeding QH441 Cone with new hanging screen and the QJ341 feeding QS331 Cone with new hanging screen will take place.
