RM NEXT – RM Group launches new product philosophy in series production

Following the presentation of the prototype at bauma in Munich in 2019, RM Group launched series production of the new product philosophy in October 2020. The RM 120X is the first crusher to be implemented in this series. An RM screen which will be produced at the centre of excellence for screening in Dungannon will follow next year.
“With this philosophy we are once again setting standards in user-friendliness,” says Gerald Hanisch, founder and owner of RUBBLE MASTER, enthusiastically. As the first NEXT philosophy crusher, the RM 120X combines enhanced safety with maximum performance and flexibility. However, the company remains true its proven service and intuitive GO! operation concept, which it continues to expand. These concepts will be implemented in all future RM products no matter if they are produced at the RM headquarters in Austria or at the centre of excellence for screens in RM Dundannon.

Four-point product philosophy
In a nutshell, RM NEXT focusses on four points. Extended service is one of them, which includes both the standard five-year warranty – an industry first – and the annual service.
Simplicity is ensured despite the additional features, equipment options and configurations that have been developed based on customer requirements. “Operating an RM 120X still involves only a few buttons. The built-in screen is only used to display information and has no sub-menus. We have received valuable input for this operating concept from our customers around the world, and the controls and display meet the specifications on job sites 100%,” says Hanisch.
The RM Group has always been one of the pioneers in terms of safety in the past. Gerald Hanisch’s vision has now become reality. With RM NEXT and the comprehensive operator-machine interface, the operator no longer has to enter the danger zone while operating the machine and can see light signals indicating both the status and current workload of the crusher from the excavator cab.
An additional focus was on the optimisation of material throughput. Here, the world market leader implements job-specific crushing equipment for the respective material and real-time analysis. This reduces running costs and increases turnover. Optimisation starts with the machine configuration, which is why 5 main application cases have been developed with the necessary equipment options. In addition, the performance indicator on the machine and the RM GO! SMART can be used to immediately detect and implement any potential improvement.

Future developments
“When we started developing RM NEXT, we always had our entire product range in mind. In future, an important role will be played by networking different products in operation at the same job site. However, we can only make this happen if all the products work according to the same philosophy,” explains Hanisch. That is why intensive work is currently underway to network RM machines that work together. This will mean that the throughput of the screen can be adjusted in future to match the utilisation of the crusher. Machines downstream from the crusher can also stop automatically if the crusher is currently not processing any material. These optimisations are designed to increase efficiency and save running costs.

About RUBBLE MASTER HMH GmbH Gerald Hanisch founded RUBBLE MASTER in 1991 at a time when others were tentatively beginning to think about recycling construction and demolition waste. The visionary Hanisch successfully developed an innovative machine nearly 30 years ago. In 1992 RUBBLE MASTER presented the first crusher for the recycling of materials left over from the production of bricks and asphalt or concrete debris. The aggregate obtained this way is used for road construction or as decorative gravel, for example. The breakthrough came for the global market leader in 1997. With exports accounting for over 95 % of business, RM is currently represented by 80 sales partners in around 110 countries in all continents of the world. Besides the core markets of Central Europe and North America the company also has satisfied customers in Eastern Europe, Russia, Asia, Africa and South America.
