The Mobirex EVO 2 series from Kleemann won the iF Product Design Award 2014
Kleemann’s new impact crushers, Mobirex EVO 2 (MR 110 Z and MR 130 Z), developed for crushing recycling material and natural stone, have received the coveted iF Product Design Award 2014 for excellent product design.
The award is a globally recognised trademark for first-class design, and in 2014 from a total of 3,249 submissions for the 2014 competition, the high-ranking international jury praised the highlights. The new Mobirex EVO 2 plants from Kleemann are also among the prize-winners in the category Transportation Design/ Special Vehicles.
Many criteria, including design quality; the processing; the material selection; the degree of innovation; the environmental compatibility; the functionality; the ergonomics, and the visualisation of intended use and safety, are taken into consideration during the evaluation.
“The Kleemann developers implemented the ergonomic requirements in the design of the Mobirex EVO 2 impact crusher in excellent fashion. The functional groups and the material flow are clearly visible and easily accessible to the operator. At the same time, the clearly structured, transparent layout protects the drives and the operating technology where necessary,” says Kleemann.
“The operation of the plants is very simple and logical thanks to a touch panel with straightforward menus and clear visualisation. All components can be controlled from the ground.
The intelligent design also facilitates the work of service technicians, because the engine compartment, the crusher unit and the double-deck grizzly are easily accessible via convenient platforms with ladders for maintenance work. Even the concealed elements are easily accessible: The belt drive and the switch cabinets can be reached via cover openings, which are located separate from one another in the housing and thus protect the more sensitive components against vibrations and dust.”
Kleemann says it also scored well in terms of functionality. Similar to the predecessor models, the material flow concept with its system widths opening in the material flow also impresses with the new plants, which are distinguished by the crusher inlet openings of 1,100mm (MR 110 Z) or 1,300mm (MR 130 Z). They enable feed capacities of up to 350 or 450tonnes/hour.
The plants are available either with engines in accordance with emissions level EU IIIA or EPA Tier 4f.
