Late last year, materials handling specialist Osborn held a successful open day to promote the addition of the KPI-JCI vertical shaft impact crusher (VSI) to its product range.Two new VSIs were on display at the company’s Elandsfontein premises, enabling customers to have an up-close inspection of these versatile 1500 and 2500 machines. Osborn has already had remarkable success with the VSI, with both machines sold before they landed in South Africa, reports Shane Beattie, Osborn product sales manager. They will be used at quarry sites for sand production.
“Manufactured in the US by sister company KPI-JCI, the VSI is highly efficient, has unmatched precision and proven flexibility,” he explains.KPI-JCI (which was formed by the amalgamation of long-time industry leaders Kolberg-Pioneer and Johnson Crushers International), Osborn Engineered Products, Telsmith, Breaker Technology (BTi) and Astec Mobile Screens are members of the Astec Aggregate and Mining Group of companies. The group, which provides innovative solutions for the materials handling, mining, quarrying, recycling, construction and demolition industries, will be exhibiting at the Mining Indaba 2013 and Bauma Africa, where it will showcase its ability to design, manufacture and market a complete, world-class line of crushers, feeders, conveyors, screens and washing equipment for opencast mining and quarrying.
