Komatsu America Corp. rolled out the D61EXi/PXi-23, its first intelligent machine control model in North America. While crawler dozers
have been able to perform high-precision finish grading after installing an
add-on machine control system, the unit's fully automatic blade control
allows it to perform rough dozing, as well as finish grading, in automatic
mode. Customer selectable dozing modes allow system response to be
tailored to the current machine operation for optimized performance.
A factory-installed cab top Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS)
antenna, inertial measuring unit, and stroke-sensing hydraulic cylinders
replace the typical add-on machine control system components.

Telsmith says it engineered the new T300 Cone Crusher
for maximum uptime and productivity while deliverying
300-horsepower performance and a crushing capacity of
125 to 400 metric tons per hour in abrasive quarry applications. The unit is designed with six cylinders — fewer than
conventional units — but offers large crushing force availability. A patent-pending anti-spin feature (mounted on top
of the machine for ease of maintenance) prevents head spin
to extend manganese life. Also patent-pending are the unit's
hybrid bearings that offer both static and dynamic lift, which
results in greater lift to efficiently carry the crushing forces.

Large capacity mobile crushing
The Terex Cedarapids MACS plant, designed to be a high-capacity, complete mobile crushing and screening system, now offers the Terex Cedarapids MVP450X cone crusher. Available as a tracked or wheeled plant, the
system boasts high-speed clearing of jammed material and quick crusher
separation capability for faster manganese changes. Its trailer design can
be permitted for travel throughout most of the United States. Its folding
conveyors and walkways set up using on-board hydraulics while hydraulic
legs level and stabilize the unit for quick setup. The system uses industrial
electric drives and can be powered by a generator or line power. Common
components throughout the plant simplify support and parts inventory.
