Bobcat launches latest telehandler
Equipment company Bobcat has launched its latest tele-handler, which it says provides “unmatched“ loading productivity and lift capacity.
The TL43.80HF, the 15th telehandler Bobcat has released, has a lift capacity of 4.3 tonnes and a maximum lift height of almost 8 metres.
According to the company, the box welded frame, low load centre, long wheel base and the new rear counterweight provides the machine with a very high level of stability.
Bobcat say this allowed them “to minimize the overall dimensions of the machine, resulting in a width of only 2.30 m and a length of less than 5 m from the rear to the fork face”.
Olivier Traccucci, Bobcat Telehandler senior product manager, said: “At Bobcat, for over 60 years, we have been constantly innovating the market – always developing new machines for customers’ needs. The new TL43.80HF is no exception to this legacy as it completes our range of telehandlers and ensures customers can benefit from unmatched loading productivity and lift capacity.
Tyron 2500 ‘improved process’
Plevin Sheffield has said that the Haas Tyron 2500 pre shredder machine it bought from Matpro Machinery earlier this year has improved the process at its wood recycling plant.
In January 2018, Matpro Machinery sold a Haas Tyron 2500 industrial mobile pre shredder to Plevin Sheffield to shred recycled wood. Six months on, Matro went to visit Jamie Plevin – managing director, to see how the new machine is performing.
Mr Plevin said: “The Hammel shredder that we had previously was nearing 10,000 hours and had the potential to start to become a costly machine to keep running.
“We were drawn to the Haas Tyron as we needed a minimum throughput of 60 tph which the 2500 was easily able to achieve. The Haas produces a consistent particle size. This is very important when feeding into our Vecoplan line to produce our end products”.
Third Tomra at SWEEEP Kuusakoski
WEEE reprocessor SWEEEP Kuusakoski, based in Kent, has taken delivery of its third TOMRA sorter.
SWEEEP say the sorter will work in tandem with its existing metal finder at a combined sorting rate of 6 tonnes per hour.
Tomra’s object recognition controls 960 air jets all primed to sort circuit board away from plastic. SWEEEP says the end result is an “exceptional level of sorting resolution, making it possible to identify even the finest particles with great precision.”
Tomra says its machine ensures that plant operators enjoy “both high throughput and constant superior quality output”.
Modular flexibility and Intelligent Object Recognition (IOR) means that the FINDER is adaptable across multiple applications within metal recovery segments.
Highlander adds equipment to meet demand
Highlander Paper Recycling has announced that it recently won two “prestigious” contracts in central Scotland which has seen the company invest in new machinery.
The two paper recycling contracts were with Thomson Colour Printers and Bell & Bain, both of which are based in Glasgow. The contracts represent a 60 tonne per week increase in volume for the company.
As a result, it supplied brand new “Auto alert” compactor machines and compactor containers which automatically send a text and email to nominated contacts when the bin reaches ¾ full and needs to be changed over.
Both installations were required to be fitted to existing air systems which drive trim waste paper from the point of guillotining to the compactor unit itself.
At the same time and using the same auto alert compactor technology at one area of the site, Highlander extended their long-term contract with Arjo Wiggins in Aberdeen. Here, Highlander also supplied a plastic baler, drop down-front wheeled bins for gathering of clear polythene at different areas of the site and a core shredder and metal stillages to reduce the volume of the approximately 50 tonnes of cores generated every month at the Arjo operation.
