Kraft Systems thinks granular for premium paver protection

Kraft Systems’ new T-Rex Granulat Dispenser distributes rectangular or disc-shaped low density polyethylene plastic bits across paving stone production pallets. A surface protection alternative to netting products, the plastic granulates prevent layer-to-layer contact, eliminating the potential for scratches and abrasion. The mechanically flexible LDPE bits act like a rubber mat to effectively secure finished product and curtail movement or skipping.

Crane-mounted camera

Developer of HoistCam remote camera monitoring systems announces the Low Profile HC140 (Gen3) model for applications where camera mounting is critical for viewing the load. The design was achieved by relocating the camera connector so it attaches at the Video Transmission Box. With new 360-degree rotation, camera orientation can be directed to the exact perspective the operator requires. If the crane’s hook block is located 90 degrees to the left, for example, the lens can be oriented 90 degrees to the right so the view of the camera on the monitor is correct. Or, HC140 developers note, when mounted on other types of equipment, such as a rubber tire gantry or straddle carrier, it is possible to orient the camera for a view of the spreader bar pins.
