Superior Industries has released version 12.0 of its telescoping radial stacker automation program. While the updated program does not affect the physical function of the machine, the appearance of the software received a major makeover.The new, user-friendly screen design is equipped with bolder graphics and modern onscreen buttons to help users navigate the software more easily. In addition, says Superior, navigation was tweaked to help improve the user experience. Also new, the automation software is now equipped with onscreen access to the TeleStacker Conveyor owner’s manual and a running meter that reports the unit’s motor hours.According to the company, TeleStacker Conveyors dating all the way back to 1997 can be upgraded; however, existing owners should contact their Superior dealers for more information.Superior Industries engineered and manufactured its first TeleStacker Conveyor back in 1997 and has since gained a reputation as a market leader in telescoping conveyor technology. The manufacturer was first to incorporate and later patent FD Axle technology for fast transitions from transport to stockpiling modes. Superior also holds current design patents covering the TeleStacker Conveyor’s undercarriage support, stinger conveyor support rollers, sealing system and Chevron® Pulley.
