A stone crushing equipment is used to reduce the size, or to change the shape of the raw material mix by breaking down the stones into small pieces, so that they are easily differentiated for the desired end use. The crushing equipments are made up of metal surfaces which are capable of compressing all varieties of material, such as stones, quartzite, rocks, coke, iron, and many others. The crushing equipments operate by applying compressive strength to the material and crushing it by means of collision between the machine and the materials.
The stone crushing machines finds use in a variety of fields such as building materials, mining, metallurgy, highways, chemistry, and railways etc. Based on the requirement put forth by the type of construction activity such as highways, roads, canals, buildings, and bridges etc., the stone crushing equipments can produce various sizes of crushed stone. With the current growth rate of global urbanization, the stone crushing equipment market is anticipated to witness a surge in demand for crushers applied in construction of infrastructure and other activities. `

The stone crushing equipments are required to be located close to the demand centers such as cities, canals, and bridges, etc. as the hauling of the crushed stone over long distances sums up to the cost of the final product. Stone Crushing equipments also demand a heavy electricity supply and a large manpower for operation and also requires access roads for the movement of crushed stone products. Owing to these reasons, most stone crushing equipments are located in the vicinity of major construction projects or along the periphery of the cities.
