In crushing, Sandvik says the CH865i cone crusher anchors its stationary crushing and screening display. The display highlights SAM by Sandvik, which the company characterizes as its “always-on” digital assistant supporting operational excellence in crushing and screening plants.

Also, Sandvik is showcaseing the CV217 vertical shaft impact crusher along with screen media and wear protection.

Sandvik has a parts and services exhibit at ConExpo-Con/Agg, as well. The exhibit features an interactive display introducing My Sandvik Productivity for Boom Drills, a telematics solution providing dashboards for faster, fact-based decision-making.

Those who visit the Sandvik booth can also experience a live demo of Expert Off-Site, an on-demand, web-based service that instantly connects customers with Sandvik experts remotely. The service minimizes downtime costs typically associated with waiting for technical support, the company says.
