Terex has now made over 1,000 of its Powerscreen Warrior machines at its facility in India

Powerscreen has made over 1,000 Warrior machines at its state-of-the-art facility in Hosur, India. The firm established its manufacturing presence in India 15 years ago, contributing to the growth and development of the country’s industrial sector. The 1000th machine, a Warrior 600 (now known as a Titan 600), represents the culmination of years of research, development, and engineering expertise.

This machine was the first tracked screener designed with conveyor folding options for containerisation by Powerscreen in Dungannon, Northern Ireland, in collaboration with the Hosur team, to be exported to global markets.

Ciaran Fanning, engineering director, Powerscreen explains, “Using a shipping container transport model, we were able to reduce delivery costs and increase vessel ability while leveraging lower manufacturing costs in India to provide a global product. Extensive collaboration between our Dungannon and Hosur teams have resulted in impeccable build quality with a volume that results in repeatable and reliable production. Although quite popular domestically and in regions close to India, the real success of this product has been the export destinations, particularly Europe and North America, which were previously not explored by the Hosur facility.”

The Warrior 600, since rebranded as the Titan 600, is an entry-level scalping screen that provides a cost-effective solution in high volume, smaller sized, or recycling applications.
