Long-term Partners Broaden Dealer/Manufacturer Relationship

Morris, Minn. – Superior Industries, Inc., a US-based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, is excited to announce a growing partnership with its longest serving equipment dealer. General Equipment & Supplies, Inc. — who purchased their first Superior conveyor way back in the early 1980s — will represent Superior’s full-line of equipment in two more states: Minnesota and North Dakota. A full-line dealer carries all of Superior’s crushing, screening, washing and conveying equipment plus parts.

“Since General Equipment’s home office is less than 100 miles from our Minnesota headquarters, this proximity has encouraged a constant exchange of ideas that have significantly improved our company,” says John Garrison, Superior’s vice president of sales. “We’re all very excited to expand our partnership in the region, which will create so many more positive opportunities for our customers, employees and all of their families.”

Just like our existing partnership in Nebraska and Iowa, General Equipment will sell, service and support Superior’s crushing, screening, washing and conveying equipment in Minnesota and North Dakota as well. Superior’s diverse, American-made product portfolio includes jaw, cone, HSI and VSI crushers; horizontal, inclined and grizzly feeding vibratory equipment; scrubbing, classifying, washing and dewatering solutions; plus unloading, transferring and stacking conveyors including the manufacturer’s famous TeleStacker® Conveyor.

“Superior has attracted many key industry engineers to their business, which is greatly advancing their product offering, quality and support,” says Don Kern, vice president of the dealer’s aggregates equipment sales. “They have diligently maintained an American-made, family-oriented, customer first philosophy that competing manufacturers have forgotten about.”

General Equipment and Supplies invested in their first Superior brand conveyor during the fall of 1982. It was a small 24” x 75’ radial stacker.

Superior Industries Reveals New All-In-One Mobile Ship Loading Conveyor

Morris, Minn. – Superior Industries, Inc., a US-based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, recently completed development of a new model TeleStacker® Conveyor for loading dry bulk cargo ships. This multi-purpose, highly mobile conveyor incorporates truck unloading and ship loading capabilities into a single machine.

“Since expanding our TeleStacker Conveyor to marine-based applications in the early 2000’s, we’ve collected hundreds of data points, design preferences and functional requirements from operators and engineers,” says Scott Gulan, sales manager at Superior. “We gathered all of their feedback and combined it with the knowledge we’ve gained to produce an impressive, multi-functional ship loading conveyor.”

Mobility, says Superior, is one of the most important functions of the new Ship Loading TeleStacker Conveyor. All-wheel travel capability means moves are easy throughout confined quays and terminals including carousel, crab, parallel, inline and radial movements. Adjusting wheel positions takes less than a minute, which means moving from hatch to hatch or from storage to operation is easier and faster than ever. Many movements can take place during active material handling to maintain consistent feeding of the ship.

Radial travel and extension loads multiple holds from same footprint on the TSSL model.
Radial travel and extension loads multiple holds from same footprint.

Another important, groundbreaking feature is the conveyor’s integrated truck unloading system. That means the truck’s ramps, hopper and conveyor are all connected to the tail end of the TeleStacker Conveyor. Owners and operators will eliminate costly double-handling and preserve material quality from bed of truck to hold of ship. The incorporated truck unloader is operated by the same power source, which lifts or lowers the undercarriage during transportation or adjustment of the truck target.

“Since the unloading and loading machines are one, they move and operate seamlessly and neatly,” says Gulan. “This greatly reduces all the time it takes for operators who historically managed the relocation of several pieces of gear.”

TSSL Side Unload model has tight footprint for small spaces.

Superior says adding a Ship Loading TeleStacker Conveyor can improve your reputation as a good corporate neighbor as several environmentally-friendly features are incorporated into the design. These include fugitive material reduction and collection systems like fully-sealed transfer points and load zones, enclosed belting, drip pans, spray bars and dust collection systems. The mobile conveyors are quiet, compact and finished with corrosion resistant coatings and hardware.

The first TeleStacker Conveyor was manufactured in 1997 and the original unit still actively stockpiles at a quarry in the United States today. Twenty-five years later, Superior’s telescopic conveyor has earned top market share and is admired for heavy-duty engineering, high quality manufacturing, best in class components and big performance. Unique standard features include a patented undercarriage for rock-solid support, largest diameter cables, mechanically-designed safety components, load sharing stinger support rolls and a winch system installed away from any material drop zones.

“As a conveyor producer, one of Superior’s most significantly unique qualities is the design and manufacturing of our own idlers, pulleys and conveyor accessories,” says Gulan. “It’s the problem-solving characteristics of these conveyor parts that truly separate Superior’s material handling equipment as best-in-class.”

The Ship Loading TeleStacker Conveyor is best suited to load Panamax vessels and conveniently packages inside containers for overseas shipping. Models include units for both rear truck unloading and compact side unloading. The 170-foot-long (52m) conveyor’s belt is 42-inches (1,065mm) wide for production of up to 1,500 tons per hour (1,360 MTPH).

Superior Expands Range of Modular Overland Conveyor Offering

press-release Zipline EXT

Morris, Minn. – Superior Industries, Inc., a U.S.-based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, is launching a new model of its popular Zipline® Overland Conveyors. The new EXT Series expands the range of the modular conveyor product line for longer and wider material handling applications.

Zipline Conveyors target bulk producers looking for overland conveyors that require little or no pre-engineering for express deliveries and are designed for quick assembly in the field. Today, with the addition of the new EXT Series, Zipline Conveyors are available in lengths up to 2,500 (762m) feet and belt widths up to 48-inches (1,220mm).

Between the head and tail are a series of 40-foot (12.2m) intermediate sections designed with 8-inch (200mm) channel and 2-foot (610mm) tall support stands. Standard Zipline Conveyor models are equipped with mechanical take-ups for shorter distances, but the new EXT Series includes a gravity take-up tower to accommodate longer distance overland conveying.

All of the conveyor components — like the pulleys, idlers and scrapers — are also manufactured in-house. This unique advantage means higher quality, faster deliveries and all-inclusive support from Superior Industries.
