SBM Impact Crushers are Technical Leaders
31. July 2018
The track-mobile impact crushers of the series REMAX made by SBM Mineral Processing have already been top-technique models on the market for many years. Thanks to numerous highly efficient and unique features the plants have been a very popular make for professional operators. Recently, the models have been updated once again. SBM REMAX 400 now stands for the performance-optimised medium class crushers for quarries and recycling of construction materials. In comparison to the well-established previous model REMAX 1312, the new model was once again noticeably improved concerning its impressive main components such as crusher, drive system and transportability. In addition to its outstanding technical features REMAX 400 is also an excellent choice on the road.
Quick and Easy Transport on the Road
The SBM basic-equipment medium-class impact crushers without secondary screen have a total weight of less than 40 tons. Due to consequently harmonising all components, the dimensions of the previous model could be optimised once more resulting in a reduced transport height of 3.60 m only and a maximum width of 3 m. Intelligent use of the compact dimensions is the absolute precondition to realising an overall transport flexibility unmatched in the market in this power class.
For Geiger Unternehmensgruppe from Oberstdorf, Southern Bavaria, transportability was the key decisive factor to purchase this plant. “On the average our plant changes its location every 2 to 3 weeks. To profitably transfer the plant in an economic period of time, the complete weight of the truck must not exceed 60 tons. Our aim was to obtain a permanent transport permission in Germany, and we succeeded!“, explains Raphael Müller, Production Manager of the Business Field Construction Materials and Recycling.
Weight and Performance Go Hand in Hand at SBM
The new version of REMAX 400 is equipped with SBM’s well-established Dolly system. A weight-optimised three-axle construction is now sufficient for transportation – so to say on an axle of its own. With this, SBM supplies a simple and cost-efficient solution to allow quick and easy relocations. This high-performance track-mobile impact crusher plant is roadworthy straight away without requiring any conversions, dismantling or authorisation procedures – and that ensures profitable operation even on smaller building sites. That is not the first SBM plant Geiger Unternehmensgruppe opted for. “There is no comparable plant in the market that combines transportability and performance in such a perfect way. The REMAX 400 plant is not too heavy, and we do not throw away crushing performance,“ describes Müller. The plant is used to recycle construction materials as well as for gravel and in quarries. Geiger Group covers almost all areas in the field of construction and has some 2,500 employees. Core markets are Germany, Austria, Romania, and France.
