Minimizing stockpile segregation and increasing stockpile capacity is key to saving money and tackling the world’s toughest jobs. SuperStackers are essential to building a desegregated stockpile and ensuring product quality. “In-spec” material prevents costly expenses associated with reprocessing materials, saving you what’s most important: time and money. By controlling the extension of the stinger conveyor, radial travel and conveyor incline, layered windrows will be built, minimizing stockpile segregation.
Desegregated stockpiling means suppliers produce more material that matches specification, resulting in no re-blending and less discounting, said Jodi Heirigs, product manager at Kolberg-Pioneer Inc. (KPI-JCI).
The Wizard Touch automation control system is vital to an efficient stockpiling operation and produces a higher quality product. The easy-to-use automation system comes with factory pre-set programming, and provides the versatility of customizing in the field.
Through its innovative design, the SuperStacker allows 30 percent more stockpile in the same footprint versus a conventional stacker, optimizing storage space.
The KPI-JCI SuperStacker includes as standard a “cam-arm” linkage, connecting the rear undercarriage to the conveyor frame. This maintains a constant radius from the pivot plate to the axle, ensuring true radial movement and uninterrupted stockpiling.
KPI-JCI’s progressive engineers know that efficiency and productivity is vital to profitability. The SuperStacker is one of the quickest and easiest telescoping stackers to pack up and move to the next operation. The gullwing axle provides optimal portability, going from road portable to operational in minutes.
