The Indeco IBS pedestal boom system is a winning combination

A Winning Trio, the Indeco IBS Boom System Decreases Downtime, Increases Productivity and Increases Safety

28 June 2016

The J H Cuthbertson quarry at Jindivick has grown from humble beginnings a quarter of a century ago to a sizeable local business employing five full-time employees and a fleet of machinery providing the district with both crushed rock and fill.

The two main products manufactured at the quarry are hornfels, crushed to make driveways and road base, and mudstone which, because of its soft texture, is as perfect for the dairy laneways as it is easy on the cows’ hooves. “We are flat out at the moment!” says Quarry Supervisor John Persico, “so any obstructions in the process must be dealt with quickly, efficiently and most of all safely”. After seeing an advertisement in an industry magazine, John only made one phone call, to Indeco, to get the answers he needed. The Indeco IBS pedestal boom system is designed to keep your plant running at maximum productivity. Mounted over the mouth of a crusher, the IBS significantly reduces the timescales and risks associated with manually removing oversized material that may be blocking the hoppers.
Indeco’s hydraulic arms are built to last for years even in the most difficult of conditions. Each unit is custom designed for your crushing plant to ensure that your investment provides the maximum return. After talking to J H Cuthbertson, Indeco designed, manufactured and installed a hydraulic power pack, an arm assembly, and a whisper quiet HP 200 breaker.
The unit can be operated either from the mounting point of the arm – which gives an unrestricted view of the work area – or in front of the monitors in the operating cabin, using a mobile radio control unit, ensuring optimum working conditions even in adverse weather. “The unit has stopped so much down time” John said. “The hand-held breaker, to be operated safely, ties up two workers to complete the job for 30-45 minutes with the Indeco boom system, it takes just one worker no more than 10 minutes. That means potentially saving one to two hours’ down time a day. Now that’s impressive!”
