One-Stop Solution For All Your Sand Manufacturing Needs
The Terex Materials Processing equipment manufactured in India at its Hosur facility is built to international standards to cater not only for India, but the global market as well. With the increasing focus globally on the environment, Terex Materials Processing is concentrating much of its product development roadmap on the advancement of technologies to accomplish higher recovery rates of raw materials from complex waste streams.
Increased Demand for Manufactured Sand
The dwindling supply of sand as a construction resource has been well documented in the media for many years. As a result, manufactured sand, where the sand is derived from crushed rock fines is proving to be a sustainable and viable alternative for construction needs.
Taking India as an example, historically most sand was dredged from rivers but in recent times, a government crack-down on the practice has led to a boom in manufactured sands. Due to numerous infrastructure projects like the Bharatmala, Sagarmala, railway and airport expansion, demand for superior quality manufactured sand is anticipated to rise exponentially.
Terex India provides a one-stop solution for sand manufacturing needs and its equipment is proven for handling the toughest applications, even when operating in extreme conditions. An example is the Terex Autosand® cones, which have established themselves to be an efficient and reliable machine to produce manufactured sand, due to its low power consumption and low ultrafine generation on per-ton basis, thus reducing sand washing and slurry management costs. This machine has a large feed intake, capable up to 63mm, and a higher production capacity compared to the conventional tertiary machines. The longer parallel crushing zone in the Autosand® cone results in higher reduction and better-shaped aggregate.
Terex has supplied over 100 Autosand® machines across India for meeting ever-growing sand requirements, including M/s Shivalaya Construction Co at Charkhi Dadri, Haryana, and as one of the biggest installations in country for quality sand production, can produce 300 tons per hour of high quality sand. Salient features of this plant is the use of only Autosand® machines to produce sand (contrary to traditional use of impactors to produce sand), thus making it highly efficient with minimum wastage.
The FM120 Conexus offers an automated control system and a small plant footprint, something Terex India customers had been asking for, demonstrating their commitment to offering solutions that add real value by serving customer needs.
Terex India has been investing heavily on aftermarkets, recognizing the importance machine longevity, uptimes and return on investment, and has an excellent track record with a dedicated and skilled service and support team across India for smooth operation and efficient supply of parts. The Hosur facility has recently opened a brand-new, Integrated Aftermarket Facility and at 1,980 square metres, will double the parts warehouse area for Terex India. The state-of-the-art structure, with an upgraded logistics system that deals with all picking, packing, delivery functions and storage, will play a key role in driving the reliable, efficient supply of parts to Terex India customers, maximizing machine uptimes and return on investment. The building will also encompass an office block and dedicated Refurbishment Shop and Engine Repair Facility, as well as a new rock test lab to study rock to aid in the prediction of performance.
A vast product range, excellent aftermarket support and service, along with a training center now in place, Terex India is indeed a one-stop solution for rising sand manufacturing needs.
