Finlay will unveil new electric variants of the I-120RS impact crusher and the 883+ scalping screen at Hillhead 2024. These models will be showcased in the working demonstration area, featuring electric-powered technology that enables operation from either a mains electric power supply or a secondary source such as a genset. The live demonstrations will be powered by the new Finlay TG500 genset, powering both machines.

The electrification of these machines represents an effort to offer environmentally friendly solutions without compromising on performance or reliability.

"We are excited to unveil our latest electric equipment at Hillhead 2024," said Matt Dickson, business line director for Finlay. "The features integrated into these electric machines will empower customers to achieve their sustainability objectives while maintaining the mobility and ease of movement that are hallmarks of our equipment."

The electric Finlay I-120RS provides the flexibility of a mobile impact crushing and screening plant on one platform. The onboard quick detach 3.66 by 1.53 metre two-deck screen ensures a quality cubical product. For applications not requiring re-circulation of materials for further processing or stockpiling the complete screening and recirculating system can be quickly detached from the plant.

The electric Finlay 883+ heavy-duty scalper is designed to work in primary and secondary screening applications such as quarry and mining, iron ore, construction demolition waste, sand, gravel, compost, topsoil, and coal. 

Throughout the development process for the electrification of these products, input from the Finlay distribution network and their customers underscored the importance of retaining the familiarity and adaptability of mobile machinery, allowing for relocation across sites with minimal effort. In response, both machines feature an onboard engine primarily dedicated to mobility while all operational components – feeders, crushers, screeners, conveyors, and more – are powered by electricity. An additional measure is the introduction of Finlay gensets, which provide electricity to connected Finlay equipment when a plug-in connection to the grid is unavailable.

"By adopting electric-powered mobile crushing and screening equipment, customers not only achieve environmental benefits but also gain financial and operational advantages as well," concludes Dickson. "It also future-proofs their investments as the industry moves towards more sustainable practices – making them a forward-thinking and responsible choice for operators."
