__Rock-Bridges__ A/ Rock bridges form at the crushers by jigsaws of coarse material (60% of events). Jigsaws predominantly form at the junction points of the rim of the crusher bin and the spider arm; an area that is characterised by a relatively large flat base allows material to settle and build up. Our proposal consist of modifying the geometry of those area by installing an additional „shoulder“ to the spider arm. As a passive system it has low cost in fabrication (<<$50k), high reliability and no maintenance cost.
