Company preparing for its most comprehensive display yet with Hillhead debut for six new models
With Hillhead 2018 now fast approaching, Telestack are preparing for their most comprehensive display of equipment yet, with no fewer than six new models making their Hillhead debut on the stand, along with some of the more established and recognized Telestack models. The range is said to offer greater flexibility and mobility than fixed infrastructures, whilst maintaining performance and minimizing civil requirements.
Commercial director Malachy Gribben commented: ‘Our display at Hillhead 2018 will demonstrate how our investment in new product development, coupled with constant communication with our industry-leading global dealer network, produces the most innovative and consistently reliable equipment in the material-handling market. The Telestack stand this year will mark a definite move to more sophisticated and innovative equipment, and we are anticipating that stand E11 will prove one of the highlights of the exhibition.’
Telestack will use Hillhead to globally launch a number of new and innovative models, including the Olympian W1800 drive-over mobile truck unloader. Designed to accept bulk material from trucks/bulkers, the Olympian range is designed to be loaded directly and can receive payloads of up to 20 cubic metres (32 tonnes). The machine can feed auxiliary equipment, reclaim on to other conveyors or directly load ships, trucks, rail wagons etc. Moreover, as the drive-over truck unloader is wheel mounted, the unit has excellent mobility on site and eliminates double handling of material, which, ultimately, reduces overall costs for operator.
Telestack will also display the AggStack 36 x 140 radial telescopic conveyor with self-contained diesel power unit, which allows the operator to position and operate all machine functions without the need for an external power source, thereby enhancing flexibility and ease of use.
Another key development for the Telestack brand is the enhancement of the Telestack hopper feeder range with the MH 5680 mulch hopper. This track-mounted, fully mobile feeder conveyor is designed to stockpile materials such as mulch, biomass, woodchips, shredded pallets, wood pellets, green waste, palm kernel shells etc. It can be directly fed by wheel loaders, grab cranes, wood grinders, shredders, screeners or trommels.
The MH 5680 has a 1,400mm (56in) wide feeder belt and steep 70° hopper sides. These features maximize the hopper opening to allow material to flow unrestricted on to the incline conveyor. A rotating auger at the outlet aerates and untangles difficult materials and regulates the flow on to the conveyor.
Also, the MH 5680 unit’s Revolution feature means that the hopper feeder has a centre-mounted slew bearing that allows 360° rotation of the hopper and boom, making it ideal for barge loading and unloading, rail loading and unloading, and stockpiling, whilst the parallel-travel feature allows the operator to manoeuvre the machine parallel to the vessel, removing the need to reposition the unit and thus enhancing loading rates and efficiency. The Revolution option is available on all HF/LF/MH models.
