Atlas Copco Introduces Powercrusher Rock Crushers


Attendees of CONEXPO-CONN/AGG in Las Vegas were among the first to see Atlas Copco’s new line of track-mounted mobile crushers and screeners suitable for demolition, quarrying and road construction applications. The product range covers jaw crushers, impact crushers and cone crushers with a crushing capacity from 220 to 550 t/h and includes screeners with a capacity of 220 to 440 t/h.

Atlas Copco’s four models of Powercrusher jaw crushers incorporate the unique “Quattro Movement.” Quattro Movement is made possible by an up-thrust toggle plate position. This causes a figure-eight motion in the moving jaw, which increases the feeding capacity and also produces a post-crush at the crusher outlet.

There are six Atlas Copco Powercrusher impact crusher models, all of which use optimized geometry in the crusher box with hydraulically adjustable swing beams. The result is a minimal percentage of oversized material, and high reduction ratios and throughputs.

The Atlas Copco PC 1000 cone crusher features cones that are compact units designed to accept an “all-in” infeed. This all-in feeding increases the particle-on-particle crushing, which in turn increases the quality of the end material shape, decreases wear and can eliminate the need for prescreening.

Bo-Göran Johansson, vice president of Marketing for the Surface Drilling Equipment division, said, “The features of these products fit very well with the benefits we give our drill rig customers. The current generation of Powercrushers combines a straightforward design and user-friendliness with long-term reliable performance.”

Andreas Malmberg, president of the division, commented further on that point, emphasizing the convenience of having a one-stop equipment provider. “Our customers will benefit from having the same supplier for drill rigs, breakers and road construction equipment, as well as mobile crushers and screeners.”

The complete Powercrusher line includes eleven different models of rock crushers and six screener models.
