Indeco’s pedestal-mounted booms, aimed to increase the safety and efficiency of crushers in quarries, is finding new markets around the world, having been developed initially for the North American and Australian markets.
“We can manufacture the booms to suit the requirement of the customer, depending on the dimensions of the crusher and the degree of rotation required,” said marketing and commercial manager Michele Vitulano.
The Indeco IBS is a secondary breaking system mounted over the mouth of a primary crusher, breaking up oversized and bridged rocks which can slow down the operation. Three options for rotation are available: 3600 with slewing ring and hydraulic motor; 1800 with hydraulic actuator; or 1500 with lateral hydraulic pistons.
Indeco has designed and manufactured all the components in-house, a strategy which it believes will guarantee customers a high-quality, reliable and durable product. This philosophy extends to all the range of equipment that Indeco supplies including hammers, pulverisers, compactors and steel shields.
“If you buy a Korean pulveriser, for example, you cannot control the quality and you cannot improve the product,” said Vitulano. “We learn so much from customer feedback and that allows us to improve the product.”
Vitulano reported that the North American markets remain strong for the manufacturer, with a growing customer base in Russia. Africa will become more important in the next 10 to15 years, said Vitulano, with some South American countries offering opportunities.
“I feel confident that we can grow more; I am optimistic,” he said. “It’s tough but we put our passion into what we do. I think we are in a good position because we are always focussed on product development and research. And because we are a family business we can be flexible enough to adapt to our customers’ needs.”
