Project: Relocatable Stacker Customisation
LOCATED in Bendigo, Industrial Conveying Australia (ICA), specialises in materials handling, transporting raw materials, processed materials and finished products for a diverse range of manufacturing industries, mining and quarrying.
When Mawsons Quarry wanted to replace its static conveyor operation with a more flexible and portable system, ICA implemented a system of custom-manufactured radial stackers (which are on wheels and totally manoeuvrable) to replace the fixed-position conveyor system.
The solution from ICA engineers included two combined radial and luffing stackers, one automated luffing unit, and a straight out radial stacker as well as significant screen adjustments, stands and chute work.
The new system offered Mawons a number of benefits including increased system scalability; Touchscreen, responsive control system; and very low unit cost with a short delivery time.
The quarry not only reduced shutdown and maintenance costs by instituting customised radial stackers, it also solved some of the dust problems that could not be overcome with standard conveyors therefore increasing OHS compliance.
