Profitable Processing with RM Crushers and Screens
Published: 10/10, 2022
Headquartered in Austria and with a production facility in Northern Ireland, the RM Group has been engineering crushers with diesel electric and fully electric drives for 30 years. This know-how is brought together in RM hybrid crushers and screens with RM developing solutions for the electrified and digitized construction site of the future. RM screens are designed and built at RM Group’s site in Dungannon, Northern Ireland, which is aiming to increase production. For example, the purchasing teams in there and in Linz, Austria are working much closer together to optimize synergies, while the manufacturing staff has expanded to facilitate additional production shifts. Developments are already bearing fruit. The company has already debuted the RM MSC8500e hybrid screen, and plans to exhibit a new scalper and a new jaw crusher at Bauma.
Climate change is also very much on the minds of RM Group’s leaders. The combination of environmental protection and business success has played a key role at the RM Group from the very beginning. Following the launch of hybrid crushers and new hybrid screens, the company is now taking the next step.
Because the RM processing system can be connected to a power grid, purely electric—and, therefore, emission-free operation—is now possible. This opens up completely new application possibilities for tunnel construction sites, inside buildings, and in city centers. And it’s hardly surprising that RM Group’s processing plants comply with all legal requirements in terms of exhaust, dust, and noise emissions. RM Group’s leaders see a trend among jurisdictions toward a larger percentage of machines to be electric-powered, and quiet. One example where restrictions are already in place is in the tourist centers dotting France’s Mediterranean coast.
“There are regular inspections to check compliance with noise and dust regulations in our region,” says Eric Galgani, one of the managing partners of SARL Galgani in Vence. But there are other reasons why the company purchased an RM MSC8500e hybrid screen earlier this year. He adds that having a suitable power supply at the company’s site in Venice allows all screening to be done with electric power, cutting the company’s diesel costs by as much as 25%. “Also, instead of producing three factions at the same time, we can now produce four,” Galgani says. “This is not only good for business, but also for conserving nature and our planet.” says Galgani.
Effective fleet management with the RM XSmart app
RM XSmart, a fleet management and condition monitoring tool launched in 2021, displays all the essential machine data as an app on a smartphone, tablet, or computer anytime and anywhere. RM XSmart uses real-time machine data to simplify the everyday work of machine operators, workshop managers, rental fleet managers, deployment coordinator, and owners. Operators can monitor fuel levels, reset belt scales, and track tonnages conveniently from their cab with an optional belt scale. The app also records machine utilization data, including run time, operating hours, and tonnages, which can be easily shared with the client or back office.
