OMNI BY TEREX SHORTLISTED FOR THREE INDUSTRY AWARDS
- Posted October 24, 2019
Powerscreen is delighted that its revolutionary OMNI by Terex has been shortlisted in three separate industry awards that are taking place over the next month: KHL World Demolition Awards, IQ Excellence Awards, and MPA Health and Safety Awards.
OMNI by Terex is a new, first-of-its kind innovation that improves efficiency, simplifies the process, and most importantly, reduces the risk of injury on crushing and screening jobsites. It delivers a tablet-based interface that is fitted inside the cab of a material feed excavator and gives operators centralised remote access to multiple machine control systems within a crushing and screening train.
The technology enhances jobsite safety by giving the operator full control and ability of immediate intervention without having to leave the cab, reducing the operator’s direct contact with heavy duty crushing equipment at ground level and other elements of the jobsite (such as dust/moving equipment). It also simplifies and improves efficiency of the operation of crushing and screening equipment by providing real-time information and increased visibility through live-camera views, so the operator can make informed decisions and adjust settings when needed.
These features and benefits were noticed and therefore shortlisted by the following key industry awards:
1. The KHL World Demolition Awards has shortlisted Terex Corporation in its ‘Manufacturer Innovation Plant & Equipment’ category recognising its innovative approach to the design and engineering behind OMNI by Terex. The winners will be announced on Thursday, 24th October in Boston.

The winners will be announced at the annual ‘Stonecrushers Ball’ taking place on Friday, 25th October in Belfast.
3. MPA Health and Safety Awards is the premier event for health and safety within the mineral products industry showcases the steps industry is taking to move closer to the ultimate target of Zero Harm.
