CD specified the T-Link Telematic System as an additional feature for its latest acquisition, which enables the plant to be monitored remotely off-site as required.
Terex Finlay said the technology allows operators to review the performance of their machine, in areas including fuel consumption, belt speed and tonnage for optimum performance.
Neil Trueman, a director at CD, said: “As a company, we’ve seen rapid growth in the last five years, so we’ve bought in another Terex Finlay J-1170 to help us keep up with that demand.
“Between 2,000t and 3,000t of material come to our yard in Macclesfield every week, so it’s important for us to have the machinery that can help us stay ahead of the game.”
Working at the company’s reclamation yard in Macclesfield, the Terex Finlay J-1170 is processing aggregates brought to the site from demolition jobs and the company’s waste transfer station.
It’s producing MOT and a 6F2 product at a rate of 2,000t per day, which is then sold from the yard or delivered out to the region.
A compact and aggressive tracked jaw crusher, the Terex Finlay J-1170, features a heavy-duty variable-speed VGF and integrated pre-screen, and boasts excellent production throughput in quarrying, mining, demolition and recycling applications, said Terex Finlay.
It provides a robust hydrostatically driven jaw chamber, enabling operators to achieve high capacity with large reduction ratios – and the configuration can be set up specifically for processing construction demolition or quarrying applications using the hydraulic release chamber option.
Neil Partington, sales director at Finlay Central, has worked with CD for six years, and has specified all the Terex Finlay machines the company has bought.
He said: “What makes this different from the other jaw crushers Cheshire Demolition has had is the T-Link Telematic System. This technology enables the plant to be monitored from anywhere around the world.”
