Telestack - The #TriedAndTrusted Material Handling Solution
Telestack enjoyed an exciting Bauma as they presented innovation and dealer expertise along with products that illustrate their capabilities, experience and understanding of the marketplace. Exhibiting under the theme #TriedAndTrusted, Telestack used the Bauma exhibition as an opportunity to highlight the breadth and depth of their product range, the decades of experience that separate them from their competitors and the quality of their products backed up with first class dealer support.
Telestack alongside their two long standing German dealers Jürgen Kölsch GmbH and Christophel GmbH met visitors, customers and dealers alike across the course of the week long exhibition. Padraig McDermott, International Sales Manager explains the Telestack journey to becoming the leading name in material handling equipment in the industry, “Our Company is yards ahead in terms of experience, quality and product design that understand the needs of the quarrying and mining industries. Our competitors are launching products that we designed over a decade ago. Our experience has been earned and our understanding of the industry is reflected in our products. The products that we presented at Bauma have a common theme of reliable performance, reduced operating costs and added flexibility to the Customer’s operation with the ability to use the equipment across the logistics chain from pit to port.”
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.
Telestack used Bauma to present a number of innovative models including the TC 421 Revolution. A track mounted fully mobile conveyor with a centre mounted slew bearing that enables 360° rotation with the ability to create either parallel stockpiles or a radial stockpile from one fixed feed in point, the TC421 Revolution is designed to work at production rates of up to 400tph. Mobile crushers and screens are naturally evolving in size but their onboard conveyors will always be constrained by transport restrictions. Tracked conveyors fulfil this need by providing much larger stockpile capacity whilst at the same time improving plant mobility by removing material from the processing equipment.
The TC 421 Revolution Tracked Conveyor is typically used for stockpiling and can be used as part of a mobile system. By introducing a TC 421 Revolution into a project it removes the need for a dedicated wheel loader to constantly remove material from the crusher, screen or shredder.
Telestack also displayed a HF10T is a track mounted mobile hopper feeder designed to work at production rates of up to 300tph. Telestack’s tracked Hopper Feeder range is designed to be loaded directly from wheel loaders, grab cranes, excavators and can be used to feed auxiliary equipment, reclaim to other conveyors, directly load ships/barges, trucks and rail wagons. Since the hopper feeder is track mounted the unit has excellent mobility on site and will eliminate double handling of material, which reduces overall costs for the operator and maintains the product quality. The HF10T is fitted with a vibrating grid to remove oversize +150mm product.
An exciting development to the Telestack brand showcased at Bauma is the enhancement to the Telestack Low Feeder range. The LF520 is a track mounted fully mobile conveyor designed to work at production rates of up to 500tph (550 Ton per hr.). The Telestack Low Feeder range is available in a series of designs and hopper capacities depending on feeding equipment and production rates on site. This 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 and side feeding which can be beneficial when operating in constrained areas. Since the low feed hopper feeder is track mounted the unit has excellent mobility on site and will eliminate double handling of material, which reduces overall costs for the operator. This unit has been specified with a heavy duty apron feeder that can be used to receive large, lumpy, abrasive and heavy materials under heavy impact conditions. The heavy duty design of this unit ensures minimal downtime and many years of service life. The apron feeder eliminates any choking of material and reclaims material at a uniform rate.
The Low Feeder has also be spec’d with an overboard magnet has been added to remove ferrous material. Telestack have also incorporated a picking station which will be placed on and one/two operators will be on each side on the belt to manually remove unwanted material. There are four chutes incorporated so that the operators can pick up to 4 products. The customer has the added ability to easily remove the picking station when required and use the unit for general stockpiling.
Commenting on Bauma, Commercial Director Malachy Gribben explains the importance of having the right dealer to represent the Telestack brand “Telestack have built long term partnerships across the world and these relationships are based on mutual trust and respect. Our dealer network are hand selected for their reputation, knowledge within the industry and dedication to keeping the customer at the forefront of their business. We very much appreciate the hard work and investments that our dealers make, and together we are anticipating another record-breaking year in 2019.”
Beginning 2019 with the largest order book ever and building on the successes of 2018, Telestack have just recently announced their plans to extend their manufacturing capacity by building a 45,000sqft facility which will incorporate state of the art manufacturing premises, a dedicated Research and Innovative Development centre and modern office suite - all of which is central to their continued growth strategy. This is in addition to £4million investment in the last 2 years in their current Bankmore site with a state-of-the-art shot-blast, 2 paint booths and an additional manufacturing facility which have all contributed to their impressive sales and operational performance.
The engineering acumen within Northern Ireland is renowned globally and the expertise within Telestack has grown and developed significantly over their tenure. In addition to their Aggregate and Mining Group, Telestack’s reputation has matured within other material handling sectors, most notably the Ports and Inlands Terminals sector, designing and manufacturing equipment to load and unload dry bulk into vessels up to Panamax/ post-Panamax size. Their equipment is involved in some of the most ground-breaking, exciting and forward thinking projects across the globe with the company gaining serious traction in other industries such as the rail, power, cement and steel plants.
