Key markets and applications for ProStack include aggregates, mining, recycling, agriculture, ports and terminals and many other bulk material handling industries.
Steven Aiken, ProStack global product line director, said: "ProStack is a tailored range of mobile bulk handling solutions, which includes feeders, telescopic conveyors and truck unloaders. These products have been specifically developed and built for large port and larger-scale bulk handling environments."
Terex says ProStack is an opportunity to bring value to customers in these industries by providing high-performance equipment that is simple to operate and maintain, automated during operation and requiring minimal setup time. As new products are developed, Terex says the ProStack's focus will be on moving the most amount of material, cost-effectively in the shortest time possible. "We want to provide high capacity, intelligent machines to the bulk handling market," said Aiken.
ProStack is said to enhance the existing core range of conveyors sold by the Terex dealers globally. Regardless of the type of job, mobile conveyors can improve safety by reducing traffic levels on-site and save customers money by eliminating the double handling of material, coupled with low operating and maintenance costs.
Terex says its ProStack teams will be with customers "every step of the way", from site appraisal, to installation, to service. The company says that Terex Financial Services can help find the optimum financial solution to suit customer's business needs.
The ProStack launch portfolio consists of a Bulk Reception Feeder Range, the Hornets, and a Telescopic Conveyor Range, the Telsons, both designed to include a multitude of options that tailor these machines to meet customer demands. The Bulk Reception Feeders are capable of receiving high volume material feeds, delivering a steady uniformed material flow onto secondary material handling systems. The 10-12 feeder has a 1200mm-wide belt design that can handle up to 1000 tonnes per hour and discharge the material at a maximum height of 3.1m. The larger 15-18 feeder has a 1800mm belt and can handle 1,500 tonnes per hour discharging at the height of 3.5m.
The comprehensive range of radial telescopic conveyors, the Telsons, are available from 42m up to 58m in length with capacities up to 1,500 tonnes per hour in the standard specification. They come in a portable wheeled format and are further enhanced with onboard hydraulic systems allowing quick, efficient site deployment. Advanced PLC automation and radio remote control of the Radial, Telescopic and Luffing movements will enable the creation of large precise desegregated stockpiles, loading material carrying vessels, barges and ships or being integrated into existing bulk handling operations.
ProStack products will be manufactured in existing MP Centers of Excellence in Northern Ireland with additional support and service from facilities in North America and India to bring customers the high levels of service you expect from Terex. "We look forward to adding more products to the portfolio in 2020 and serving our new customers to a very high standard" concluded Aiken.
