Transreflective displays for easy viewing
Depending on the specific application, the Cardinal Scale RE unattended system will incorporate the Cardinal model 225 Navigator weight indicator or the model 825 Spectrum with a full-color graphics touch-screen display. Both of these systems incorporate transflective displays for easy viewing and intuitive self-prompting steps for the driver to utilize. All Cardinal unattended systems include an inclusive QWERTY keypad on the weight display to take the guesswork out of data entry. The driver is prompted through the entire weigh transaction for the information your customer requires. This information is all recorded in the scale house on Cardinal’s WinVRS truck management software.
Facts and figures for producers
KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens has released its newest version of Facts & Figures, a quick-reference guide containing comprehensive general technical information for aggregate and recycle producers, operators, engineers and maintenance personnel of KPI-JCI or equivalent crushing, screening, washing and material-handling equipment. The 216-page, pocket-sized book is the fourth edition since Kolberg-Pioneer began producing it in 1988. The guide’s roots trace back more than 50 years ago, however, when Pioneer developed a Facts & Figures book in Minneapolis, Minn. Kolberg began producing an Aggregate Reference Guide during the 1970s, and when Pioneer moved to Yankton, S.D., to join forces with Kolberg, the book was combined into one, known as the Facts & Figures book.

Waterproof back-up alarm sounds beep per second
Alliance Truck Parts’ new back-up alarm conforms to SAEJ994 standards and can be used on construction or agricultural machinery, and any truck that requires this type of alarm. The back-up alarm offers waterproof construction using rugged ABS plastic to withstand pressure-washing, harsh environments and even impacts without damage. The unit’s housing is designed to focus its 97-decible standard one-beep-per-second output to the rear where it is most needed. The unit’s interior mechanism features solid-state electronics encapsulated in epoxy for increased durability. The compact 4 inches wide by 1-5/8 inches deep by 2-3/4 inches in height size, universal mounting design and rugged stainless steel terminals that resist corrosion simplifies installation. The alarm has reverse polarity protection built in, and low current requirements making it an easy addition to electrical systems already loaded with accessories.
Delineator bounces back when hit
Pexco partnered with the Alaska DOT to develop a new design of delineator that would improve visibility for Department of Transportation workers and the “ice road” truck drivers, as well as reduce maintenance for the agency. The “Dalton Delineator” is a cantilever structure consisting of a short length of a Davidson Flexi-Guide FG 400 Roadside Delineator post, mounted to a special flexible coupler. The coupler, in turn, is attached to a square steel tube support that is installed off of the traveled roadway. The delineator post or “arm” projects horizontally out from the shoulder, above the roadway; is capable of rebounding when struck; and provides excellent reflectivity at night.
Fabric buildings with steel beams
Combining superior-quality, rigid-frame engineering with the proven benefits of tension fabric, Legacy Building Solutions introduces its Legendary Building Series, the industry’s first line of fabric buildings to incorporate structural steel beams instead of open web trusses. This engineering concept provides a cost-effective, long-lasting solution for salt and sand storage facilities. Legacy Building uses a durable, rigid frame in place of the hollow-tube, open web truss framing traditionally used for fabric buildings. Legacy’s solid-structural steel beams are not vulnerable to unseen corrosion that originates inside a tube. Additionally, the hot-dip galvanized framework provides protection against challenging corrosive conditions. The buildings feature high-quality polyethylene fabric roofs that eliminate the corrosion concerns associated with metal-constructed facilities. A wide variety of PVC fabrics are also available.
Optimized boom design
Global Crane Sales, in partnership with Zoomlion, has introduced the 385-U.S.-ton-capacity QUY350 crawler crane. Eleven boom configurations and five hook blocks are standard on the ANSI-certified crane. Each configuration features an optimized boom design and is constructed of European high-strength steel to provide greater lifting at lighter boom weights. The main boom has a 285-foot lift height. To allow longer reach, the luffing jib boom may be added to the main boom (light-duty configuration) to achieve 340-foot lift height. For maximum lift and capacity, the QUY350, when combined with its superlift counterweights and luffing jib, can reach greater than 540 feet and lift more than 16,000 pounds at maximum boom length.
