Jaw crusher machine, picturing the two jaws of any living animals, crushers materials in its crushing chamber formed by a movable jaw and a fixed jaw. It is widely used in heavy mining, metallurgy, sand and gravel, quarried materials, construction and demolition recycling, transportation, water conservancy and other industries. Moreover, material’s compression strength should be less than 320Mpa.
Generally, a frame, an eccentric shaft, a large pulley, a flywheel, a side guard, a toggle plate, a toggle back seat, a clearance adjustment screw, a return spring, a fixed jaw plate and a movable jaw plate makes the jaw stone/rock crusher. HAMAC has PE series jaw crusher and PEX series jaw crusher for sale. The widespread adoption of PE series jaw crusher is widely in the primary crushing of various ores and materials, such as coarse and medium crushing. In addition for customers’ requirements, PEX series jaw crusher is suitable for fine and medium material crushing of smaller capacities.

Types of jaw stone crusher machine


There are two main groups of jaw crushers machine, single-toggle jaw crushers and double-toggle jaw crushers, classified according to their jaw movement mechanism. In single-toggle jaw crushers, the movable jaw is supported by the bearing on an eccentric shaft driven by a rod to which it is attached. Then a toggle plate at the bottom of the moveable jaw support the rod. Toggle plate compressed between moveable jaw and main body. This mechanism ensures that the moving jaw moves in an elliptical orbit. Through this movement, the movable jaw give both pressure and friction forces to the material. In double-toggle jaw crushers, the rod is mounted on fixed non-eccentric shaft that situated at the top of the crusher. There are two toggle plates, one on the left and one on the right, are linked to the rod that is hinged to the driven camshaft. The toggle plate on the left links to the jaw-supporting block, while the one on the right links to the main body. A comparison of jaw crushers with the same capacity reveals that double-toggle jaw crushers are more expensive than ordinary jaw crushers. For this reason, mostly single-toggle jaw crushers are used in the aggregate materials, while double-toggle jaw crushers are used mostly for crushing very hard and highly abrasive materials.


Why choose a jaw crusher?

The jaw crusher machine uses a fundamental and reliable technology that does not require much maintenance or engineering knowledge. They are the most popular crushers in the world. Jaw crushers are particularly suitable when the main objective is to reduce large blocks into comparatively smaller pieces, then the other machines would process them. The structure, function, productivity and other features of the jaw crusher reflect the level of advanced technology available today, solving the problems of low productivity and maintenance and assembly difficulties. It is the ideal coarse crusher equipment to meet your needs.
