Reflecting its commitment to working with customers to continuously improve its products and services, mining equipment specialist Osborn has developed an innovative enhancement to its jaw crushers. The improvement will make the OEM’s machines safer and more efficient than ever, according to product development manager, Andre van Tonder.

“When our customers asked us to investigate alternative ways to lift jaw crusher liners in and out of our machines, we listened and responded. After detailed investigations, and having conducted on-site tests with customers, we are rolling out liner lifting features that cater for specific customer requirements,” he explains.

Osborn Lifting pointOsborn’s designs use standard lifting equipment, not special lifting tools, and have been thoroughly evaluated on several mines and quarries. The innovation will deliver exceptional benefits to customers. “With Osborn’s new jaw crusher liner lifting points, there is no need for our customers to employ special lifting devices that require additional certification. There is no need to weld lifting lugs onto the manganese liners. We have also eliminated the need for coded welders and non-destructive tests on welds,” he says.

“The primary advantage for end users is the quicker change out of liners, which means less down time,” adds Van Tonder.

Osborn’s new liner lifting points have been designed and evaluated by the company’s professionally registered engineers. Van Tonder notes that a minimum safety factor of five was applied to all designs. The points allow for the use of standard D-shackles for lifting. Van Tonder explains that older crushers only require minimum on-site rework to allow for the hooking of liners without moving them.

“At Osborn, we aim to continuously improve our service and our industry-leading mining and quarrying equipment and capabilities. Our enhanced manganese liners will save our customers time and money. They will optimise safety and efficiency in lifting liners in and out of machines,” he concludes.
