Brokk unveiled a compact and stationary breaker boom system that offers a range of motion. According to Brokk, the system can be used for primary breaking tasks that feed mobile crushers, jaw crushers, gyratory crushers and grizzlies. The pedestal boom body is mounted on a pedestal rather than on tracks, allowing the machine to be installed in a stationary position next to a crusher or any areas where primary breaking is needed. No external power pack or hydraulic hose connection is needed.

Adhesive range launched as part of collaboration

Weir Minerals, in collaboration with Henkel, developed the Linatex Loctite Lina 88 cold-bonding rubber adhesive range as a solvent-free adhesive for rubber lining applications with zero volatile organic compounds (VOCs). According to Weir, VOCs are carbon-based, organic chemicals that are often used in adhesives, paints and coatings. The entire adhesive range is non-flammable and does not require any special handling or storage facilities, Weir says. It can be sprayed over the top of rubber lining to provide protection from ultraviolet rays.

No extra charge for machine connectivity service

Hitachi Construction & Mining Division, an operating division of John Deere Construction & Forestry Co., says customers no longer need to renew their ZXLink connectivity service subscription. Now, customers can enable ZXLink on compatible machines at no additional charge. Once customers enable ZXLink, Hitachi says they can select to automatically activate it on future compatible models to further streamline fleet management. With ZXLink, Hitachi customers can access fleet insights such as machine location and utilization, idle time, fuel level, upcoming maintenance and machine alerts – all from a web or mobile platform. Similarly, system data from the factory-integrated Hitachi Solution Linkage 2D and 3D Grade Control works with ZXLink for analysis, further enabling operators, fleet managers and owners to keep projects on track.

Vibrating screen monitoring system expands

Haver & Boecker Niagara launched a new addition to its Pulse portfolio with the introduction of Pulse Condition Monitoring (Pulse CM). The technology is designed to monitor the health of vibrating screens using modern algorithms and artificial intelligence. Pulse CM provides accurate measurements and forecasts complemented by information that is easy to understand, Haver & Boecker Niagara says. It is a wireless diagnostics tool that helps mineral processing operations be proactive, rather than reactive, when it comes to maintenance efforts. This leads to increased efficiency, decreased downtime and improved reliability, the company adds.
