With KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens equipment now available from Columbus Equipment Company, Ohio contractors have easy access to some of the finest crushing and screening equipment available for applications including recycling, aggregate and construction.
“These are the premier brands for their sectors, offering solutions for a wide variety of applications,” noted Bob Stewart, aggregate-processing equipment specialist. Columbus Equipment Company will focus on mobile crushing and screening equipment.
KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens is made up of three American manufacturing companies that are sector leaders: Kolberg-Pioneer, Johnson Crushers International and Astec Mobile Screens. The organization is part of Astec Industries, the leading manufacturer of equipment for applications including asphalt road building, aggregate processing, and wood processing.
One of the most exciting products is the new Astec Mobile Screens ProSizer® 3600 for use with Recycled Asphalt Product (RAP), Stewart said. “It is going to be a revolutionary piece of equipment for our market here in Ohio.” This easy-to-set-up plant—which includes a large impactor, recirculating belt and high frequency screen, or a conventional incline screen on one chassis—quickly turns RAP into reusable material. Columbus Equipment Company debuted the machine at the Ohio Asphalt Expo in March.
Some highly-productive, KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens machines are already in our rental fleet:
The FT4250 is a track-mounted horizonal impactor that can be used in tight areas to crush material. The 6- by 12-foot, double-deck screen is the largest in the industry on a track machine. The FT4250 can crush and track at the same time, increasing uptime by 30 percent.
The FT2650 track-mounted jaw crusher is a largecapacity, self-contained plant that uses a combination of engine loads, hydraulic pressure and an ultrasonic sensor to manage product flow for maximum production. The FT2650 has more than 25 percent higher through-put than competitive models.
KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens state-of-the-art equipment—and ultimately our customers—will also benefit from stellar support for Columbus Equipment Company service departments and technicians. If our technicians are working late on your equipment and have a question, someone at the factory is available to assist them 24/7, so your equipment can be back online faster. The company’s online ordering system helps identify parts by machine serial number, allowing our parts department to immediately find the part a customer needs.
With the manufacturer’s MobileStar onboard diagnostics tools, Columbus Equipment Company technicians, or your own maintenance personnel, can log in to see what is causing a problem. MobileStar can also send warning alerts and notifications about preventive maintenance. “With these tools at our disposal and our fleet of service trucks with highly-trained technicians, you can be 100% confident in the best support available in the region,” Stewart said.
Recognizing that many customers are moving into the digital world, KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens also supplies customers with both a print version and an electronic version of the operators’ and parts manuals.
“We are very excited to have Columbus Equipment Company join our distributor network,” said Ron Earl, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, for KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens. “For over 60 years, CEC has offered excellent product support for its customers.”
