For more than 75 years, Kolberg-Pioneer (KPI) has led the marketplace in designing and manufacturing powerful equipment for the aggregate, construction, mining, industrial and recycling industries. Marketed together with the Johnson Crushers International (JCI) and Astec Mobile Screens brands, KPI manufactures complete lines of crushing, screening, material handling and washing and classifying equipment in stationary, portable and mobile configurations.
In 2017, KPI greatly expanded several of its product lines. The crushing line now features the 3500 Vertical Shaft Impactor (VSI), with a 14-inch feed tube opening and 350 TPH capacity. All VSI crushers from KPI also offer new drop-in carbides to greatly reduce downtime for maintenance.
KPI also expanded its SuperStacker® telescoping stacker line with the launch of the 190-foot model with 36-inch belt, and the containerized 150-foot model with 36-inch belt. The updated, patent-pending Wizard Touch® automation software provides application flexibility with configurable stockpiles.
The washing and classifying line from KPI also received an update with its fines recovery plants being released with containerized options. This will greatly reduce transportation costs and allow KPI to more efficiently ship equipment to producers.
In addition to their OEM parts, Kolberg-Pioneer continues to develop its PDQ parts line for competitive products. In 2017, KPI has grown the washing and classifying PDQ parts lines with dedicated, internal engineering resources. KPI now offers an online platform for interactive, 3D parts manuals to more efficiently serve customers and dealers anywhere and at any time.
