Telestack was due to stage a number of innovative global product launches at Hillhead 2016.
The AggStack range is a series of value added mobile conveying systems designed to meet the needs of the quarry, aggregate, sand and gravel markets. The comprehensive model series is said to combine the Northern Ireland-headquartered manufacturer’s range of entry-level radial telescopic stackers, radial fixed length stacking conveyors, truck unloaders, hopper feeders and link conveyors with an emphasis on functionality, strength, performance and price point. At Hillhead, the company was due to showcase the AggStack 36 x 140 Radial Telescopic Conveyor, said to have a proven record of performance and reliability operating in a range of aggregate applications worldwide.
Another eye-catching development for the Telestack Aggregates and Mining division being exhibited at Hillhead 2016 (28-30 June) is the enhancement to the Telestack hopper feeder range, seen in the on-show LF520 and brand new LF520 Radial.
The Low Feeder range is said to allow operators to directly discharge from wheeled loaders/ grab cranes and excavators at a significantly lower feed-in height compared to standard hopper feeders. The novel design of the hopper allows for rear feeding which can be beneficial when operating in constrained areas.
Telestack design and manufacture a range of low feeders to suit various applications and is available in a range of designs and hopper capacities depending on feeding equipment and production rates on site.
The LF520 Radial being launched at Hillhead 2016 is said by Telestack to be the direct result of its LF customers asking for additional features to improve performance.
Telestack will also display the HF1021R from the Revolution series - the hopper feeder range with centre-mounted slew bearing that enables 360° rotation of the hopper and boom. Ideal for barge loading and unloading, rail loading and unloading and stockpiling, the parallel travel feature enables the operator to manoeuvre the unit parallel to the vessel, removing the need to reposition the unit, thus enhancing loading rates and efficiency. The Revolution option is available on all HF/LF models.
