The crusher was developed on the basis of field experience from customer sites. Crusher cavity, kinematics, and operating parameters have been defined and optimized to guarantee productivity. Crusher height utilization has been optimized to achieve a steep cavity cross-section. Excellent nip angle high up in the cavity, together with an ag- gressive linear stroke at the bottom, ensure high throughput capacity and reduction. The unit is designed to be safe to operate and maintain. Metso | Re-engineered jaw crusher Universal Engineering introduced the jaw crusher in 1906, and since then the technol- ogy has remained pretty much the same. When McLanahan Corp. purchased Universal in 2012, it began a total re-engineering to create a safer, simpler, and smarter jaw crusher. Re-engineering the attack angle and crushing stroke pattern increases capacity by 15 percent while minimizing wear on jaw dies. McLanahan has also calculated a new way to adjust the crusher's close-side settings. The hydraulic rams are isolated from the crushing action allowing full automation, finger-tip control, and push-button adjustment — virtually eliminating toggle migration and reducing expensive operational costs.
