The MAX Inclined Vibrating Screen is designed to be durable for the longest useful wear life and with maximum strength steel to withstand heavy loading. Sideplates are a fully bolted construction that reduces/eliminates crack propagation due to stress riser in the steel caused by welding and pro- vide the ability to quickly replace worn components without cutting. These sideplates also utilize A572 Gr. 50 plate as standard, giving it a 45 percent higher yield strength than traditional A36 plating. Metso Downtime is costly for screens in minerals processing and aggregates production. Metso's new hammer- less attachment system for screening media provides safer installation, faster removal and maximized uptime. Metso's attachment system for its Trellex screening media offers increased productivity and makes media change-outs safer and faster than with traditional systems. Up until now, the removal of worn-out pin and sleeve screening media mod- ules has been a time-consuming and potentially unsafe undertaking. Metso's innovative new attachment system improves worker safety during change-outs. There is no need to use a hammer when installing and removing screening media. The specially developed pins can be screwed into place as well as removed using an impact driver. Accidents that occur when pins that are stuck get torn off by force can be avoided. In addition to improved safety, the new attachment system cuts the change-out time consid- erably, resulting in higher uptime and productivity. The new attachment system is currently available as a standard option for Trellex 305PS screening media in the most common build heights and will soon be introduced for additional build heights. Polydeck With so many options in the Polydeck family of products, the company can provide a screen media solution that is guaranteed to meet a customer's needs for product spec, wear life and performance. All of its polyurethane screen panels and rubber screen panels are made with an injection molding process, ensuring accurate openings and con- sistent construction-panel after panel. Injection molding also means that sur- face features (such as dams and skid bars) are not glued or bolted on, but are an integrated part of the panel's construction. Value-added Polydeck differences: • Highest open area in the industry (by
