The MCO 11i PRO cone crusher

Kleemann showcased a new cone crushing plant and a new intuitive control system for its crushing operations at ConExpo-Con/Agg 2017. The company shared details at the Wirtgen America booth during a Thursday press event.

According to Kleemann, the MCO 11i PRO cone crusher is designed for tough and demanding quarry applications. A diesel-electric drive powers the cone crusher, achieving an output of up to 518 short tph. The plant can be equipped with an external power supply for even more efficient operation, the company adds.

Also, because the hydraulics are installed in the lower part of the plant, the MCO 11i PRO has a low center of gravity. This offers more stability, reducing noise and vibrations to a minimum, the company says. In addition, plant components can be easily reached from the ground or via spacious work platforms for maintenance work and refueling the plant.

Kleemann’s new control system, Spective, is available on the MCO 11i PRO.

Kleemann’s new control system, Spective, is available on the MCO 11i PRO, as well as with other Kleemann crushing plants. Users are supported from the start with the operation of a touch panel, and they are guided step-by-step through the startup process. Then, the system starts.

On the start screen, operators see a diagram of the entire plant with its adjustable functions. A desired function is selected and the operator is guided through all necessary steps with clear instructions.

If a fault occurs during machine operation, a fault diagnosis is shown on the display. Downtimes are reduced with fault localization, a description of the fault and tips on its elimination.

A 12-in. touch panel is not susceptible to dust and is easy to read with the adjustable light and contrast settings – even in strong sunlight, Kleemann says. It responds to the touch of fingers, tools, pens or gloves.
