Powerscreen open day

Event in Boston, MA, proves a success with positive feedback from North American distributors

POWERSCREEN hosted an open day event for their North American distributors, held in Boston, Massachusetts, on 16–17 October 2012. The successful event featured an engaging conference and on-site demonstration of a range of Powerscreen crushers and screens, showcasing their adaptability for a wide variety of applications.

‘Our Americas Open Day was an outstanding success and feedback from distributors has been fantastic,’ said Damian Power, global product line director. ‘Economic conditions globally may be challenging but we are committed to reinforcing our position as one of the world’s leaders in mobile crushing and screening equipment for our key sectors and to continue to innovate as we have done in the past.’


The dealer event included visits to two neighbouring quarry sites to see new and existing products working together. The first quarry in Walpole showcased an XH500 impact crusher that fed a new Warrior 1400X screening machine working on a recycled concrete and asphalt application. The crushed material was set at 3in (75mm), while the bottom deck was at 1in (25mm) in order to produce +3in (+75mm), 1–3in (25–75mm) and 0–1in (0–25mm) products.

The second site at Wrentham had on demonstration a new XA400S pre-screen jaw crusher feeding a 1300 Maxtrak cone crusher, a Chieftain 2100S screen and a separate Warrior 2400 screen, working on blasted granite. The pre-screen on the jaw was set at 2in (50mm), with the Chieftain screen configured at 1in (25mm) on the top deck; 0.5in (13mm) on the middle deck; and 0.25in (6mm) on the bottom deck. The Warrior screen had a top deck of 4in (100mm) and a middle deck of 2in (50mm).
