This system features a patented pivoting conditioning arm design that eliminates performance and maintenance issues found in opposing compression plate units, and provides up to 261% more force than others for deeper material penetration, and maximum conditioning results. The operator loads the bulk bag to be conditioned into the unit via forklift and activates the PLC controlled au- tomatic conditioning sequence. System's tubular steel pivoting conditioning arms penetrate deeply into the material for more effective results than traditional vertical sheet metal compression plates while the rotary lift table properly positions the bulk bag for complete material conditioning. Material Transfer & Storage Inc., Allegan, MI 800-836-7068 www.materialtransfer.com Heavy-Duty Vibrators or Continuous Duty Bulk material handlers in a wide array of industries are improving process flow and efficiency with a lineup of heavy-duty vibrators so durable that they are rated for continuous duty even at maxi- mum force settings, delivering enhanced reliability and extended service life. The Cougar B Series vibrators minimize accumula- tion in storage vessels, transfer chutes, dust collectors, and other locations, maintaining throughput and reducing maintenance time required to clear blockages. All models are totally-enclosed, non- vented (TENV) designs with Class H high-temperature windings and enclosures rated IP-66. Martin Engineering, Neponset, IL 309-852-2384 www.martin-eng.com Additive Manufacturing Material Handling System Volkmann Inc. introduces PowTReX, its next generation ad- ditive manufacturing handling system. PowTReX is designed spe- cifically to enhance additive manu- facturing technology when handling metal powders or toxic materials by providing safe transfer, recovery and extraction and return-to-use of materials with high bulk densities at high rates. Recognizing the need to improve efficiencies in the addi- tive manufacturing environment, PowTReX eliminates needless waste of costly metal powders while main- taining a safe, contained environ- ment for product transfer.
