Competitor Analysis Reaffirms Excel’s Quality

Recently, one of our customers evaluated an alternative vendor for the bronze components they purchase from Excel, and asked us for an in-depth comparison of our product to theirs. As a result of this request, Excel purchased three components from this competitor. The Inner Eccentric Bushing, Upper Head Bushing, and Upper Thrust Washer are some of the primary bronze components in a cone crusher and were used in this comparison. Destructive and non-destructive metallurgical testing was performed on these components and also on the same three crusher components manufactured by Excel.

Excel invited customer representatives to our facility to present the findings of this testing. A presentation, Excel Component Comparison: Why EXCEL is Your Best Choice for Replacement Components, was led by Director of Quality, Dan Wegner and Sr. Metallurgical Engineer, Mike Bergerhouse. The analysis highlighted relevant aspects of the three compared components including:

  • Packaging
  • Chemical Analysis
  • Mechanical Properties
  • Microstructure Analysis
  • Machining Quality
  • Surface Finish Analysis
  • Availability, Support, and Intangibles

There were three primary factors giving Excel the advantage over our competitor: Excel has better control of chemistry (our bronze had better mechanical properties (strength and toughness) than that of our competitor); size control was better on Excel’s Inner Eccentric Bushing; and the surface finish was better on the critical areas of the component. A comparison of these three parts made it evident that Excel possesses a greater understanding of the features and aspects which are critical to good performance in crushing applications.

“This competitive product analysis reaffirms where we stand in the market. We need to continue to be aware of our competitors and highlight what makes Excel’s product superior,” said Wegner.
