Polydeck Screen will unveil its new Armadex line of screen media at AGG1. The media is manufactured using BIM (Binary Injection Molding) technology. The company says this technology incorporates a two-step process, which puts premium natural rubber blend under extreme pressure, resulting in a high-density, long-wearing panel. Sections are available up to 4 inches thick and in sizes up to 48 inches by 96 inches. The BIM process also allows customization options.

Martin Engineering plans to introduce its new PV Cleaner at AGG1. The belt cleaner is a durable, one-piece blade that contains approximately 20 percent more urethane than comparable primary cleaners. The company says its aggressive design removes even wet, sticky sand from belts. The mounting system is simple, allowing the unit to be dropped into place and secured with a wire lock pin. The belt cleaner features the company’s Constant Angle Radial Pressure (CARP) design — a specially engineered curved blade that maintains the same contact angle, even as the belt wears, helping to retain cleaning efficiency. It fits head pulleys up to 16 inches in diameter and belt widths from 12 to 72 inches.

Caterpillar’s new 966K XE wheel loader will be on display at AGG1. The company says the loader delivers up to a 25-percent improvement in fuel efficiency meeting the needs for both efficiency and sustainability, while simplifying the operator’s interface and operating technique. It features a C9.3 ACERT diesel engine; an integrated, continuously variable transmission system; and a hydraulic pump and motor that allow smooth and continuous gear ration change between engine speed and machine speed. The operator has the ability to control maximum ground speed through the use of virtual gears to provide flexibility in various applications.

Metso says its new Lokotrack ST2.4 mobile screen achieves high screening capacity and low fuel consumption thanks to its optimized hydraulic design and state-of-the-art control system. The two-stage screen can produce three clean end-product sizes in one process through smart material flow and the use of first-class components. The hydraulic opening of the screen makes servicing — from cleaning to media change — easy and safe. The screen can be equipped with a variety of media, from steel mesh to Trellex rubber and polyurethane, as well as a vibrating apron feeder with grizzlies or finger bars. The screen box size is 5 feet by 12 feet.
