Leading quarry operator places trust in Chicago Pneumatic
International construction equipment manufacturer Chicago Pneumatic has, for over eight years, been playing a major role in helping one of India’s leading producers of manufacturing and plastering sand, Matha Granites, expand its quarrying operations in India’s Kerala district.
Established in 1988, Matha Granites has considerably developed and expanded over the years. The company has recently mechanised its quarring operations by introducing breakers, excavators and sand making machines and opened a further quarry in the Kuruppampady – Perumbavoor region.
Matha Granites’ successful relationship with Chicago Pneumatic began in 2005, when the company purchased its first CP1150 hydraulic breaker. With over 8,000 hours of reliable service, the breaker proved a great fit for the company, paving the way for the purchase of other Chicago Pneumatic products. “Ever since we bought the CP1150, which was our first breaker, we’ve had a close and very productive relationship with Chicago Pneumatic,” said Mr Pauly, Engineering Manager at Matha Granites in Kerala. “Over the years, we’ve bought a lot of our key equipment from Chicago Pneumatic and have always been extremely happy with the quality of the products and after sales support provided. ”
In 2007, Matha Granites acquired a CPS325 air compressor, which was followed by a CPS400 air compressor four years later. In addition, it has recently purchased a model from the Chicago Pneumatic range of RX medium size hydraulic breakers, which has proven an ideal match for the company’s requirements. With a novel design featuring only two moving parts, RX breakers ensure easy maintenance, long service life and quiet operation. Other key features of RX breakers include hybrid technology, that ensures optimum energy transmission from the piston to the working tool, a power booster, that harnesses recoil energy to enhance percussive performance, and a breaker box guiding system that minimises recoil forces so that there is less strain on the carrier, operator and breaker.
