Superior Industries, US-based manufacturer for Tricon Equipment, has released a new model of TeleStacker conveyor for dry loading of trucks and ships.
The machine was specifically designed by Superior to wrap ship and truck loading into one piece of equipment, saving costs for the end -user.
Superior sales manager Scott Gulan said the growth of the TeleStacker range has grown off the back of extensive market research.
“Since expanding our TeleStacker conveyor to marine-based applications in the early 2000s, we’ve collected hundreds of data points, design preferences and functional requirements from operators and engineers,” Gulan said.
“We gathered all of their feedback and combined it with the knowledge we’ve gained to produce an impressive, multi-functional ship loading conveyor.”
Mobility is the new conveyor’s proudest function, with all-wheel travel capability allowing it to manoeuvre in confined sites of operation.
Adjusting the wheels of the TeleStacker takes less than a minute, meaning storage is far simpler than previous models.
Further benefits lie in the connection from ramps to hopper and conveyor.
Owners can remove the cost of double-handling and lose far less material in the process.
“Since the unloading and loading machines are one, they move and operate seamlessly and neatly,” Gulan said.
“This greatly reduces all the time it takes for operators who historically managed the relocation of several pieces of gear.”
Superior Industries is one of Tricon’s most popular brands, most noted for its design and manufacturing quality.
“It’s the problem-solving characteristics of these conveyor parts that truly separate Superior’s material handling equipment as best in class,” Gulan said.
