Mobility in action: CRS Mobile Picking Station

Twelve months since its release, Lincom Group says it has received extensive interest in the versatile CRS Mobile Picking Station.

Lincom Group, which provides recycling equipment to the quarry, mining and forestry industries, last year began investigating a picking station that could be easily moved on site.

Mark Malone, Lincom Group National Sales Manager, Forestry & Recycling, says the company partnered with CRS due to their experience in providing versatile, well built and engineered, static and mobile plants.

The CRS Mobile Picking Station can be fed by a screener or trommel and offers recyclers high throughput with a maximum of eight separate products.

What attracted Lincom Group to CRS’s station, Mark says, is the fact that the station can be manoeuvred easily. In addition, it can be set up and operational within an hour or so of arriving on site.

“If you get a static plant engineered there is more lead time, but once the plant arrives on site it has to be assembled. So there is the added expense of crane hire and labour, not to mention lost production and interruption to business, as it could take several weeks before it is completed and ready for operation,” Mark says.

Mark explains that hydraulic jacking legs allow the picking station to be set up easily on uneven site conditions, while a remote control allows the operator to remain at a safe distance during the set up procedure.

The unit comes with double-sided walkways for easy access and variable speed control to cater to a wide range of recycling applications. Options available include an overband magnet, blower or a cabin. A Deutz or Cat Engine is available, giving recyclers a choice between two well-known engines.

But above all else, Mark says the mobile picking station wouldn’t be such a popular choice if it weren’t for CRS’s flexibility when it comes to meeting customer requirements. The mobile picking station offers a standard four bay picking station, three bay with a magnet or three bay with a magnet or blower. The choice depends on the recyclers needs.

“Lincom Group partnered with CRS to offer a range of Mobile and Static Recycling Equipment. We talk with, but more importantly listen to, our customers to understand exactly what their requirements are. We then work closely with them and CRS to ensure those requirements are met in an efficient and timely manner.”
