Terex Finlay introduces 873 Tracked Mobile Heavy Duty Screener
The Terex Finlay 873 is designed to work after a primary crusher or on its own as frontline screening machine. This newly developed, highly versatile and adaptable machine is suitable for working in quarrying, mining, construction and demolition debris, topsoil, recycling, sand, gravel, coal and aggregate applications.
This aggressive forward facing inclined modular configuration screenbox has a 3.66 mm x 1.52 m (12’ x 5’) top deck and a 3.66 mm x 1.52 m (12’ x 5’) bottom deck giving a total screening area of 14.4 m² (155 ft²).
Depending on the working application of the machine hydraulic adjustment can be used to vary the angle of the screen box between 13 – 19°. The top deck of screenbox can be fitted with a variety of screening media including tines, bofor bars, punched plate and mesh. The bottom deck can be fitted with mesh or cascade fingers.
The hopper has a 7 m³ (9.16 yd³) capacity as standard with a drop rear door for use in conjunction with a mobile crusher.
Processed material is output via three hydraulically folding discharge conveyors allowing for maximum stockpiling capacity and associated benefits of rapid set up and tear down times.
Additional features of the machine include; galvanised access ladders and catwalks fitted as standard to both sides of the screen box. Hydraulic raising of the screenbox discharge end provides additional clearance for screenbox and fines transfer conveyor maintenance.
Trimble Laser for Interior Construction
Trimble has launched the Spectra Precision LT58 Laser Tool, a new line laser for interior construction ideally suited for acoustic ceiling installations.
The LT58 Laser Tool is an easy-to-use, automatic self-leveling laser that projects three 360° planes of ultra-bright laser light.
The laser produces a bright green laser beam in the horizontal plane. The horizontal green beam is intersected by two vertical red laser planes spaced 90 degrees apart, providing references for interior layout tasks including wall layout and installation, point transfer, finish carpentry, tile layout, and horizontal and vertical alignment.
The laser is compact, lightweight and can be easily setup using the included wall mount.
The LT58 package includes a universal mounting accessory that allows mounting to various sized ceiling track, tripods, columns and studs of various sizes is also possible. The mount has fine vertical height and horizontal rotation adjustments for quick and easy setups.
The LT58 is powered by a lithium-ion battery, providing a typical battery life of 19 hours with the green beam. In addition, the ecological friendly, rechargeable battery can lower operating costs compared to disposable alkaline batteries.
