You have heard it before: Try to reach the maximum output with a minimum of effort. We are here to help you achieve this aim. Our crushing and screening solutions are complemented by a wide range of digital solutions, bringing optimal results even under changing conditions. The full digital experience consists of intelligent crushing, processes and operations optimization, and fleet management.

Intelligent crushing

If you are working at a quarry or if you are a private contractor, our intelligent crushing offering can help in both cases to improve the safety of your operations and maximize the productivity of your crushing processes. Automating the crushing and screening process is a core part of this offering. You will be delivered a control system that offers you monitoring and control features, ranging from a single machine or crushing stage to your full crushing process.

Intelligent crushing is built using robust hardware and is designed to work reliably in demanding crushing environments. Automation is there to reduce unexpected costly downtime. Intelligent crushing comes with the convenient advantage of being able to control your equipment remotely from a centralized climate-controlled facility, or even directly on-site, for example while working in an excavator. Intelligent crushing is also compatible with SCADA (Supervisory control and data acquisition) software and hardware system.

Process and operation optimization

Process and operation optimization is an ideal service for quarry operators who wish to take the next steps towards reaching their full potential. The journey towards becoming a benchmark quarry starts from a workshop with our experts and the solution is built step by step based on the findings and targets.

The solution can be divided into three main categories: Automated and semi-automated performance optimization and operational optimization. An automated performance optimization will help to stabilize and optimize the way your quarry is operated. For crushers and screens, it is possible to reach new performance levels with semi-automated performance optimization. Operational optimization makes your parts management smarter, which will in return increase parts availability at site, enabling more running hours for your equipment.

When the necessary steps towards becoming the benchmark quarry are taken together, there will be a shared commitment to understanding, to uptime, to capacity and to performance. Our solutions will give your quarry more running hours and performance through our tailored approach with focus on sustainable and safe operation. This is achieved with our digital tools and experts.
