The Austrian company has been powering its mobile processing plants with electricity for decades. Using this expertise, Rubble Master says it is continuously setting standards in the energy efficiency and cost-effectiveness of its machines. That is why with the tagline Meet the future, Rubble Master says it is displaying technology that "is still a dream of the future for others".

With the claimed revolutionary new development of the showcased RM H50X hybrid screen and the RM J110X jaw crusher, customers are said to be saving even more fuel costs. In addition, the RM XSMART software solution and other new digital innovations demonstrate how operators and machines can network intelligently to get even higher output. As a result, mobile RM crushers and screens can be combined in a versatile, flexible and efficient way.

Even at a time before steadily rising fuel prices, the electrification of Rubble Master machines was said by the company to be a "key economic as well as ecological argument".

As part of the RM NEXT philosophy, the RM Group says it is consistently supporting electrification and offers all its crushers and screens as hybrid versions as a matter of principle. These machines can also be operated fully electrically. A special focus is on combining machines to form crushing and screening trains so they can be operated together. This means, for example, that the crusher can also power the screen. That is how customers can save time and money because they only need to refuel and service one engine.

Rubble Master hybrid machines are said by the manufacturer to consume up to 25% less fuel than diesel-direct systems. If a crusher equipped with a hybrid drive system also powers an electric screen - a standard set-up with RM - even greater savings are said to be achievable. With this technology, the savings are said to be much higher than with conventional diesel-hydraulic systems. Another advantage, in addition to lower operating costs, is that the machines can be used in emissions-sensitive areas.

Digital solutions and networked machines increase efficiency in addition to electrification, and Rubble Master is focusing intensively on digitalisation to give customers a full overview of their machines while operating even more efficiently. Using the RM XSMART app, machine operators can network with their machines either using an app on their mobile devices or by using the browser app. Fleet management, condition monitoring, end-to-end reporting, and troubleshooting support make everyday life much easier and, at the same time, increase productivity. Rubble Master, however, says it goes one step further by networking the machines with each other. In a networked crushing and screening train, the machines can communicate with each other to adjust their output to optimise the utilisation of the upstream and downstream units or react to an event such as one of the machines in the train switching off. This means that machines are not overloaded, nor do they run idle. Rubble Master says autonomous crushing and screening is the next logical step the group will be presenting soon.
