Terex India Hosts TEXCON 2023
Terex India Hosts TEXCON 2023: Impressive Array of Technological and Sustainable Solutions for the Construction and Recycling Industries.
Terex, global manufacturer of materials processing machinery and aerial work platforms, welcomed approximately 250 customers from across India and team members from its various global facilities and brands to TEXCON 2023 in October.
Under the theme "Where Technology Meets Sustainability", this exclusive event included a series of insightful presentations from industry leaders that covered emerging trends, challenges, and opportunities in the ever-evolving construction and recycling sectors.
Customers travelled to the Terex India manufacturing centre of excellence at Hosur to receive a tour of the facility and visit its Product Showcase area: an impressive line-up of equipment representing the broad portfolio of brands produced locally: Terex® MPS, Powerscreen®, Finlay®, Terex® Washing Systems, Franna®, EvoQuip®, and Terex® Rough Terrain Cranes. A highlight was the unveiling of two new products—the Powerscreen Warrior 1200 Hybrid Screen and the Terex Washing Systems FM200 Double Wash.
The Powerscreen Warrior 1200 Hybrid Screen is a Dual-Powered machine that can also run on electricity, if available on-site. It has a compact 12ft scalping screen with a highly aggressive screen box, making it suitable for unique applications such as Biomining, River gravel, Blasted Material, Coal, Slag, and Asphalt Screening.
The Terex Washing Systems FM200 Double Wash is an integrated washing solution to cater for a wide range of feed material and can produce up to three washed and sized products. This equipment is designed to maximize slit removal by washing it twice through multiple cyclones, and ultimately maximize recovery so that more saleable material is produced. It is pre-wired and pre-plumbed for quick installation and comes with customized screen options to suit various applications.
The latest innovations from Terex® Ecotec, Terex® Recycling Systems, ZenRobotics®, Terex® Advance, Bid-Well®, and ProAll®—Terex brands not currently manufactured at Hosur—were also showcased either on static display or virtually through immersive videos.
A special feature of TEXCON 2023 was the Innovation Centre, where attendees witnessed the latest technological developments by Terex and its various brands. Within the Innovation Centre, Terex unveiled the ACE5, an advanced Cone Control system that delivers notable benefits such as improved aggregate productivity and enhanced quality.
Customers also enjoyed learning about various new types of screening media and advancements coming from Franna in terms of VR. Additionally, the Innovation Centre was a platform to showcase Terex engineering capabilities, online parts ordering system, and telematics, all of which were found to be engaging and informative by the customers in attendance.
The event culminated in a gala dinner and cultural celebration, where guests enjoyed an exquisite spread of local cuisine and entertainment along with the opportunity to connect and discuss the future of construction and recycling.
"Terex is committed to innovating to meet the needs of our customers, which are becoming more and more linked to sustainability,” said Kieran Hegarty, President, Terex Materials Processing. “Sustainability is fundamentally linked to the products on display here at TEXCON 2023, which not only offers solutions to recycle and repurpose waste material, but also safeguards our planet’s limited resources. I commend the team here at Hosur for the impressive product and technological showcase demonstrated today.”
Jaideep Shekhar, VP & Managing Director - APAC & EMEAR continued, "TEXCON 2023 proved to be a terrific showcase of our ever-evolving product portfolio and expertise. We were also delighted to bring together diverse minds from across the industry to discuss and visualize the next chapter of construction equipment technology, while underlining our unwavering commitment to sustainable progress and innovation."
