Tuesday, July 20th, 2010
Sandvik Mining and Construction made their first appearance at Hillhead as one company following the merger of Rammer into the Sandvik brand, and the acquisition of Fintec and Extec in 2007. Hillhead 2010 allowed Sandvik to present their product range, with many old favourites being shown, and the unveiling of some exciting new developments.
The Sandvik product offering provides solutions for virtually any application, and encompasses such diverse businesses areas as surface rock quarrying, excavation, tunnelling, demolition, recycling and civil engineering. The range of products developed to service these industries includes rock tools, drilling rigs, breakers, tunnelling equipment, crushing and screening machinery, bulk-materials handling systems – in fact machinery to deal with virtually every possible requirement.
Hillhead 2010 was seen as the perfect opportunity for Sandvik to show, and vitally to demonstrate, members of their total solutions product range at what has become the world’s leading quarry and construction show piece. Hillhead was thus seen by Sandvik as the perfect occasion to introduce some exciting products. These included:
Breakers In Action – The NEW BR3288 and BR4099 for Quarrying
The NEW Basic Line breaker BA2323
The NEW BR111/222/333 Compact Range

The all encompassing nature of Sandvik’s product offering now enables customers to process materials from the very beginning of its usable life to the very end – and beyond! Dimensional stone can be drilled then quarried, tunnels excavated, rock extracted, then materials crushed and sized to produce the highest quality of aggregates. And when its life cycle is finished the Sandvik range of demolition and recycling equipment will allow for the same materials to be re-used and recycled starting the process again so that the circle of use is complete.
It was not only the Sandvik product range that was highlighted at Hillhead: Sandvik’s recent Aftermarket developments were given due emphasis, and presented customers with opportunities to discuss their parts and service requirements at first hand. Potential customers look for a reliable partner who can not only supply the equipment they need, but who also understand the construction environment, and possess a global presence that can provide a high standard of support regardless of location.
All Sandvik products have been developed working in conjunction with some of the world’s leading quarrying and construction companies. This ensures that Sandvik produces the right equipment, for the right application, all with the features that ensures customers benefit from the highest levels of productivity, but the lowest levels of cost of ownership and vitally, with minimal environmental impact.
