30 • ROCK products • April 2018 AGG1 2018 name that is known for long wear life, heavy-duty design and durable wear parts, the Condor line offers all of this and more, according to the company. This line features the same Classic Eagle Iron Works out- board bearings, rising current classifier and adjustable weirs that are standard among all Eagle Iron Works screw wash- ers. These units are built with a Class 1 Dodge reducer. The Condor line offers standard value line Urethane flight shoes or if you prefer the premium Eagle Armor, that can be added as well. The washer tubs are constructed with a lighter gauge U.S. steel construction and match the same capacities as the Classic screw washer tubs. The tubs also contain the same mounting points as Classic Eagle Iron Works products. Single- and dual-shaft models are available in: • Fine Material Screw Washers: 36-, 44- and 54-in. • Coarse Material Screw Washers: 30-, 36- and 44-in. Eagle Iron Works, Haver & Boecker Haver & Boecker introduced new configurations of its Ty-Rail quick-tensioning system for screen media. As a result of Ty-Rail's success, Haver & Boecker developed and now offers three angle-box designs for different vibrating screen setups. This allows producers to benefit from Ty-Rail's time savings during screen media change-outs, even on difficult-to-access areas of a vibrating screen. The patented Ty-Rail system is designed specifically for Haver & Boecker's Tyler brand of vibrating screens and now comes standard on all new F-Class and T-Class machines with three- bend tension rails. The system solves an age-old problem of time-intensive screen media change-outs. Replacing tension rails is typically time consuming and requires removing and replacing many pieces of hardware per screen section. Wash- ers or bolts are often dropped or lost in the process, which adds to downtime and parts costs. Ty-Rail eliminates this problem by combining the tension rail and all of its hardware into one piece. The new Ty-Rail angle box designs provide the ability to change screen media in half the time, even in tight or hard-to-reach areas. "Our goal is to continually develop new ways to help our cus- tomers achieve more productivity," said Karen Thompson, Haver & Boecker Canada president. "Our patented Ty-Rail system is just one way we are achieving that goal. The feedback from customers and the positive impact on their operations encouraged us to develop additional configura- tions to accommodate more screen designs and applications." Haver & Boecker, Kespry Aerial intelligence solutions provider Kespry showcased the work of more than 170 aggregates customers at AGG1. These organizations, including new Kespry aggregates customers CSA Materials, Stoneco of Michigan (a division of Oldcastle) and York Building Products, all use the Kespry industrial drone-based platform to manage stockpile inventories, plan mining operations and maximize revenue. To date, Kespry aggregates customers have flown 10,400 worksite missions measuring 223,000 stockpiles across 1.4 million acres. York Building Products operates stone quarries, and sand and gravel operations throughout Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware, providing high-quality aggregates to the Mid-Atlantic region for more than half a century. To ensure greater control over inventory management and mine plan- ning processes, the company implemented the Kespry aerial intelligence platform so it can frequently and automatically calculate the perimeter and volume of all aggregate stock- piles. It also uses Kespry to estimate reserve levels, and to compare volume measurements from stripping and mine reclamation work. "With the Kespry drone, we can fly as often as we want across all of our sites to make sure that our production numbers are right on target," said Jim Gawthrop, vice president, York Building Products. "We no longer have costly surprises. Bottom line, it's about getting the right information – and more information – just when we need it, instead of waiting for a manned aerial survey."
