FLEXCO Belt training solution Flexco says its easy-to-install PT smart belt trainer is made of durable materials and works with both mechanical and vulcanized belts. The item features pivot-and-tilt technology that corrects tracking problems on medium-tension belts. A fully enclosed stainless-steel pivot bearing located downstream from the roller creates an almost immediate tracking result. The bearing requires no lubrication and is guaranteed not to seize.

Event data can be exported into the XML, CSV, or ASCII file formats. Exported data can be further analyzed within a spreadsheet or leveraged using the Internet, automating the process of transferring vibration data directly from the Series IV unit to a website for viewing by approved stakeholders. The program also maintains the proprietary Instantel Event format and security features and the same functionality as the Blastware Compliance Module.

The loader features a 229-horsepower John Deere PowerTech 6.8-liter Tier 4 Interim engine that runs at an operator-selected constant speed from 900 to 1,800 rpm. The company says the engine's constant operating speed maintains continuous hydraulic flow at all times to deliver crisp hydraulic responsiveness and reduce cycle times; the electric motor delivers torque resulting in fluid operation and a smooth ride. The machine has four operating speed ranges, but no reverse gear or clutches as direction changes are performed by the electric motor.

Takes measurements in the field Laser Technology, Inc. released the 200X TruPulse laser rangefinder to measure slope distances and degree of inclination. The unit can then calculate horizontal and vertical distances, height, and 2D missing line values. Suitable for applications requiring a high degree of accuracy, such as rock face profiling for blast design or stockpile measurements for volume and tonnage calculations, it produces measurements with a +/- 2-inch range of accuracy. Laser Technology, Inc. | | Text INFO to 205-289-3782 or visit KOMATSU Intelligent machine control dozer Komatsu America Corp. rolled out the D61EXi/PXi-23, its first intelligent machine control model in North America. While crawler dozers have been able to perform high-precision finish grading after installing an add-on machine control system, the unit's fully automatic blade control allows it to perform rough dozing, as well as finish grading in automatic mode. Customer selectable dozing modes allow system response to be tailored to the current machine operation for optimized performance. A factory-installed cab top Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) antenna, inertial measuring unit, and stroke-sensing hydraulic cylinders replace the typical add-on machine control system components.
