Superior Level Assist
First publishedin Aggregates Business International
Superior Industries, the US-based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, has developed new technology said to speed up one of the most time-consuming steps in portable plant installation. Known as Level Assist, the new option automatically levels a plant once the machinery is raised to a desired height.
Historically, owners and operators tediously adjusted cribbing and jacks until a level plant was achieved. With Level Assist, once the plant is in its operating location, the operator hydraulically lifts the machinery to a desired height then engages the new Superior Industries’ technology by switching the control panel from manual to auto mode. Level Assist reduces labour force required for setup from two or more to one, resulting in thousands of dollars in savings if a plant is relocated or when simple readjusting is required.
