Superior Industries announces new heavy duty Guardian scalping screen

Superior Industries, Inc., a US-based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems is announcing what it says is another advancement in its lineup of Guardian® Horizontal Screens with a brand-new heavy duty scalping model.

The new HD scalping screen handles a maximum feed size of 457 mm, surpassing its medium-duty predecessor, which maxes out at 355 mm.

The HD screen is equipped with a perforated top deck, or punch plate, made of heavy-duty 19 mm AR steel. A slight slope facilitates the movement of feed material for efficient screening.

Superior says it manufactures more than a dozen models of its popular Guardian Horizontal Screen series in Columbus, Nebraska, one of its four American manufacturing facilities. Horizontal screens are available in two, three, or four-deck configurations.

Superior Industries unveils enhanced conveyor idler for extra longevity

Superior Industries, Inc., a US-based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, has announced what it says is the most significant redesign to conveyor idlers in decades.

This update is backed by a substantial $4.5 million investment in cutting-edge idler manufacturing equipment at its US production locations, the company says.

According to Superior Industries, these are the key innovations of the new idler design:

  • Ironclad weld joint at tube to end disc: a flush end disc prevents material entrapment between the roll and frame, while a weld bead is securely housed within the roll’s structure, ensuring added durability. This also comes with modern, robotic welding for greater weld penetration and extreme consistency;
  • Revamped designs of idler bearing seals: a decade of rigorous testing results in an unmatched bearing protection system, according to the company, with the lifespan of standard bearing seals surpassing all other models tested. The Premium Titanium® seal, in this case, provides extended longevity for demanding applications; and
  • Major upgrade to idler manufacturing:Improving industry-leading pace, Superior says it has achieved new heights in manufacturing speed. The manufacturing production rate of standard and custom idlers has witnessed a 35% increase, while the integration of robotic manufacturing ensures a level of consistency previously unseen.

Jason Adams, President of Superior, said: “Tens of thousands of Superior idlers are installed on our own conveyors every year, so roll performance really, really matters. The new idler exceeds our own high performance standards and we’re excited for other conveyor owners and operators to benefit from this upgrade.”

Superior Industries acquires VSI originator CEMCO

Superior Industries, Inc., a Minnesota-based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, has announced the acquisition of CEMCO, Inc. of Belen, New Mexico.

CEMCO’s original VSI is still in service today in New Mexico, according to the company.

“We’re honoured that the Hise family has trusted us to carry on an incredible legacy they worked very hard to create,” Jason Adams, President of Superior Industries, said. “Our care for employees, customers, and the Belen community will continue to be strong.”

With the addition of the CEMCO’s VSI, a 140,000-sq.ft manufacturing facility in New Mexico, and dozens of experienced employees, Superior takes another step in its goal of providing more opportunities for dealers and a diverse portfolio of proven products for producers, Superior says. The CEMCO VSI is a much proven, highly trusted crusher with capacity rates up to 1,500 t/h and models ranging from 75-1,000 hp in single or dual drive packages.

Superior Industries to showcase eight new products at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023

US-based bulk material processing and handling systems specialist, Superior Industries Inc, is planning to showcase more than 250 tons (227 t) of products at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 in Las Vegas, Nevada, in March, with at least eight of the products representing brand new launches.

Included among this new product offering is an expanded cone crusher portfolio, with two brand-new cone models introduced and shown alongside Superior’s Patriot® Bushing Cone.

Superior’s Prime Mine Duty Pulley to be unveiled at CONEXPO

Superior Industries is to debut a new conveyor drum pulley at the upcoming CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 show in Las Vegas, it has confirmed.

One of a dozen new products the company will introduce during the trade show on March 10-14, the Prime™ Mine Duty Pulley is a drum-style conveyor pulley manufactured in diameters from 4 in (10 cm) to 30 in (76 cm) and face widths of 12 in to 78 in.

It is designed and built with a solid steel end disc, which eliminates welding at the hub of the pulley, according to Superior, which said the applications include aggregate and mine duty conveyors using fabric belts that frequently start and stop under full loads.

Alan Schmidgall, a Vice President with Superior, said: “Our Prime Mine Duty Pulley has many of the same design characteristics of Mine Duty 2.0 and Super Duty drum pulleys, but its optimised design yields a lower weight. That means we can offer a more economically friendly option and include many of the features our customers said they require.”

The Prime Mine Duty Pulley is one of four standard, pre-engineered conveyor pulley models available from Superior. Other designs include CEMA, Mine Duty 2.0 and Super Duty. Superior also offers custom-engineered pulleys from its Core Systems® Design team.
