At Australian Crushing and Belting Group, we are dedicated to providing innovative solutions that maximise the performance and longevity of our customers’ equipment. In this blog post, we share a success story where our engineering team collaborated closely with a customer to enhance the wear life of impact plates for their Sandvik QI440 crusher. By implementing customised modifications and incorporating metal composite materials, we achieved remarkable results that not only improved the wear life of the plates but also brought substantial cost savings to the customer.
The customer approached us with a critical issue: the impact plates in their Sandvik QI440 crusher were experiencing premature wear, resulting in frequent replacements and inconsistent performance. With over 48 plates in their machine, the customer faced significant maintenance costs and reduced overall productivity. It was clear that a tailored solution was necessary to address these challenges effectively.
Our engineering team worked closely with the customer to understand the unique requirements of their crusher and develop an appropriate solution. Through a combination of engineering modifications and the introduction of metal composite materials, we aimed to increase the wear life of the impact plates significantly. Key modifications included deepening the bolt tension holes, increasing the dimensions of the plate, and adding a chamfer to the leading edge. These enhancements were meticulously designed to optimise the plate’s durability and performance in the demanding crushing environment.
The impact plate modifications proved to be a success. Not only did they extend the wear life of the plates, but they also demonstrated improved consistency in performance. The customer experienced significantly reduced downtime and maintenance costs as the need for frequent plate replacements diminished. This transformative solution ultimately resulted in substantial cost savings for the customer, enhancing their operational efficiency and profitability.
Building on the success of this customised impact plate solution, we have incorporated it into our regular inventory. As a result, we have been able to support numerous customers with Sandvik QI440 crushers, offering them the same benefits of extended wear life and cost reduction.
