Sandvik to highlight total solutions at Hillhead 2014

Rammer 5011 hydraulic hammer

Introduction of new solutions-based equipment including screens, crushers and hydraulic hammers

SANDVIK Construction will be taking advantage of Hillhead 2014 to highlight their total solutions product ranges, with many old favourites being shown alongside a number of UK and world product launches, as well as live demonstrations of mobile crushing and screening equipment.

Sandvik say they are planning to use the opportunity presented by an exhibition of such importance to the to the global quarrying and construction industry to emphasize areas of expertise and service that transcend the traditional supplier–customer dynamic. This, they add, is due to the fact that Hillhead is seen as the perfect place to introduce new solutions-based equipment. Among the latest new and innovative equipment on display will be: the CH540 stationary cone crusher; the QA451 mobile screen; and the Rammer 5011 hammer.


The new generation of compact cone crusher from Sandvik provides customers with optimum performance and good cubical shape, whilst ensuring the lowest operating cost per tonne for a wide range of materials and applications. The all new patented Sandvik CH540, which is based on the proven Hydrocone design, combines the ability to produce excellent shaped products, in fewer crushing stages, thereby making it adaptable to ever-changing customer requirements.

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 predecessors, as well as seamlessly incorporating many further refinements. 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, to produce the cleanest aggregates with ease.

Backed by Rammer’s exclusive lifetime warranty, the new Rammer 5011 has been designed using the same operating principle first seen on the smaller 3288 and 4099 models, which raised the standards in power to weight ratios. Suitable for carriers in the 43 to 80 tonne operating weight category, the 5011 model weighs 4,750kg and slots 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.

In addition, through the launch of Optiagg Sandvik Construction are now offering a new dimension in operational support for their CH430, CH440 and CH660 cone crusher models. As well as complete redesign of the mantle to deliver greater efficiency, effectively Optiagg takes the guesswork out of optimizing crusher performance through a step-by-step process that includes analysis of the current conditions, modelling to identify the optimal configuration and set-up, as well as validation of the outcome. This results in fine-tuning of the chamber set-up according to the desired output and the specific demands of the application, to secure more of the most valuable fractions without costly trial and error.

What really helps make Hillhead exciting and different, however, is its live equipment demonstrations, and this year will see Sandvik demonstrating several examples from their mobile crushing and screening range, including the launch of two new products which will be shown at work for the very first time – the QH441 and QS331 mobile cone crushers, both featuring Sandvik’s new hanging screen. Live demonstrations of these and other machines will be held hourly directly in front of the company’s main stand.
