MEC jaw crusher: discover now four peculiar characteristics

The extraction of certain types of natural rocks, such as marble and granite linked to the use of machinery capable of crushing the material in a targeted and effective way. Jaw crushers, for example, by applying the compression shredding principle, ensure high-strength processing and excellent quality of the final product.

Used for waste volume reduction, road construction material recovery or street furniture, MEC crushers and crushing plants are extremely versatile. It is an optimal and truly efficient solution for those who work with stone or concrete!

If you are interested in discovering the peculiarities of the various crushing techniques, you just have to continue reading this article! Today we will tell you about the operation of MEC jaw crushers, their structure, and the peculiar characteristics that distinguish them.

What are the benefits of using jaw crushers?

The name jaw crusher derives from the “chewing” movement of the material and the jaws used in this specific type of processing. Indeed, the crushing process is carried out by compression when a mobile jaw closes on a fixed one, chewing the stones delivered in the middle. Now let’s find out the four main characteristics of this crushing method.

  • Ease of use and reduced maintenance: It is why the MEC machines are the ideal solutions for the primary crushing of various stone products.
  • They boast great versatility: the MEC jaw crusher can be used for the crushing of fragile, medium-hard, or very resistant rocks.
  • Capable of giving value to waste that cannot be recovered in other ways, MEC plants guarantee quality results even in recycling operations.
  • They represent a highly economical crushing solution, eliminating the cost of transporting the material, storage, and disposal.

Guarantee of a quality final product, economy, and versatility: all the distinctive features we have just seen summarize the wide range of MEC solutions dedicated to stone and concrete crushing.

STARK: The MEC jaw crushers are ideal for crushing natural stones

The jaw crushers Stark are able to act on any stone and, depending on the opening or closing of the jaws, allowing them to obtain different grain sizes. The elliptical motion makes the material crushing with large forces and low speed. Depending on your company’s requirements, MEC recommends various types of jaw crusher lines: Stark 5.5, Stark 7.5, and Stark 15.

All three models have a heavy and robust frame and, for greater productivity, can be integrated with other equipment.

In fact, MEC crushers are also available in lines complete with a Crunch mill and/or Stark jaw crusher, conveyor belt, and two or three-deck vibrating screen. It is an excellent solution for all companies that need a customized system.

Thanks to the ability to treat materials of various kinds, the MEC range guarantees high performance in terms of reducing the vibrations discharged during the process.


In this article, we have told you about the main characteristics and operation of jaw crushers, the ideal machines for processing not only waste material but also concrete, agglomerate, ceramic, and glass, and obtaining finished products for various uses.

We have also given you a brief overview of the most efficient MEC crushing solutions with a particular focus on the Stark series.
