The biennial Hillhead show was held at the Hillhead Quarry, Derbyshire, UK between Tuesday 26th June and Thursday 28th June. The show, which is held mainly outdoors, is always prone to the uncertainties of the British weather but 2018 will be remembered as the year when the sun shone on visitors and exhibitors for the duration of the event. Hillhead is the premier showcase for the quarrying and recycling industry in Britain and the many static and working displays make it an important event for all involved in the market, both domestically and internationally.

Invicta at Hillhead 2018
New on the Invicta stand this year we were displaying the HVL45 hydraulic linear vibrator which attracted a great deal of interest from operators and manufacturers alike. This new design differs from earlier arrangements in its modular design and low height construction. In addition to the hydraulic vibrators a large range of electric and pneumatic vibrators were also on display. The Invicta BLz range of electric vibrators is renowned throughout the world as a sturdy, reliable drive unit which is used on all types of screen and feeder. While the Invicta range of pneumatic impacting vibrators are often used as discharge aids on chutes and silos.

The stand was manned by staff from the Invicta Vibrators division, and from the Invicta Drives and Controls division who were pleased to meet a large number customers and visitors and to discuss the merits of the Invicta range of products. The show was a great success in terms of the number of visitors attending the stand and this was confirmed by the organisers who issued provisional figures to indicate it was the busiest event to date.
