// 9 June 2016 @ 15:25

Bringing Innovation to HillheadOn the heels of a very successful Bauma 2016, Telestack are anticipating a buoyant and exciting Hillhead as they plan to showcase their most impressive, innovative and comprehensive range of equipment to date! After years of investment in New Product Development and constant communication with their experienced dealer network and customers, Telestack plan a number of debutants at Hillhead from across their comprehensive range. The Telestack stand promises something for everyone and is looking forward to being one of the key highlights of Hillhead 2016!

Telestack, specialists in the complete design, manufacture, installation and commissioning of mobile, bulk material handling systems, have a global proven record in a range of applications including mining and quarrying, stockyard management, ports & inland terminals, power stations, rail yards, steel mills, cement kilns and many other bulk material handling industries.  Telestack have matured into two clear divisions - Telestack Aggregates and Mining and Telestack Ports and Inland Terminals and offer a range of solutions and reference sites along the logistics chain from pit, to port to plant.

Malachy Gribben, Commercial Director explains “Telestack have grown extensively, not only in terms of sales but also in terms of new markets, new industries and the associated product range. We have two specialist divisions with the company - Telestack Aggregates and Mining and Telestack Ports and Inland Terminals. Of course our years of experience are transferable in terms of design and functionality, but we now have specialist teams that understand intricately the individual sector that they are dedicated to serve. Each team has first-hand experience and understands their respective and specialist sector.”

Gribben continues “Telestack are one of the primary stalwarts of bulk material handling equipment. We have a very clear plan and we understand that to be the best we not only have to design the most innovative yet practical features, but we also work with the best suppliers, recruit the best employees and ultimate build reliable and innovative equipment. We also have to work with the best companies and be represented by only the best dealers. To be truly innovative, we need to be wholly immersed in our specialization, hence the company divisions. We will continue to listen – to the good and the not so good. We are excited about the future and we have a comprehensive programme of company and product developments ahead of us.”

AggStack Range - GLOBAL LAUNCH

 Telestack will use Hillhead to globally launch a number of new and innovative models. First up is the AggStack® range – a series of value added mobile conveying systems designed to meet the needs of the quarry, aggregate, sand and gravel markets. The comprehensive AggStack® series combines their 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. On the Hillhead stand is the AggStack® 36 x 140 Radial Telescopic Conveyor which has a proven record of performance and reliability operating in a range of aggregate applications around the globe.

 LF520 Radial

Another exciting development for the Telestack Aggregates and Mining division is the enhancement to the Telestack hopper feeder range. On the Telestack stand will be the LF520 and the brand new LF520 Radial. The Low Feeder range allows the operator to directly discharge from wheel loaders/ grab cranes and excavators at a significantly lower feed in height compared to standard hopper feeders. The unique 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 is being launched at Hillhead and is a direct result of our 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.

Hillhead has always been one of the primary showcases for launching new and innovative equipment and Telestack plan to use the event to promote the Titan 450-6. The Titan on display is a fixed bulk reception feeder and is used primarily to handle aggregate, cement, biomass and other free flowing materials. The Titan range is available as static, wheeled or tracked versions and combines the success and knowledge that Telestack have generated over the years to evolve into the one brand – the Titan range.

In addition to two of Telestack’s core tracked conveyors (the TC420X and TC421R); the Telestack stand will also display a TCL431 Tracked Conveyor. With a heavy-duty lattice design, the Telestack TCL range is designed to maximize stockpile volumes and has the ability to increase stockpile capacity by over 82%. The radial 31m version can achieve capacities of up to 20,000 tonne when compared to the traditional 24m boom lengths. The Telestack tracked conveyor range has a proven record of performance and reliability, operating in all types of applications and climates around the world in stockpiling, recirculating, linking, truck loading, shiploading and rail loading applications.

Recently appointed Marketing Manager Mairead McCrory explains “this is a pivotal show for Telestack – we have a comprehensive display of equipment that demonstrates the breadth and depth of our range. Telestack are an exciting company who truly understand their markets and Hillhead is our chance to shine. It’s also a great opportunity to catch up with our long-standing and loyal customers who travel far and wide to Hillhead as well as those who are in the process of including Telestack equipment in their fleet!”
