Heavy tool lanyard
A new 15-lb. Tool Lanyard joins company’s fall protection program. It was developed to protect property and crews, while augmenting productivity by ensuring high frequency tools are close at hand.
The 14-in. STS-6 Multi-Application Diamond Blade features manufacturer’s third generation patterned diamond technology, which evenly aligns diamonds into rows within the blade’s segment. Precise alignment ensures the maximum amount of diamonds contacting the cutting surface at any given moment, product engineers note, netting a blade with consistent segment wear rate and approximately 30 percent more footage versus comparable blades.
Multidetector PS 50 brings new depth to area scanning. The self-calibrating tool uses pulsed radar technology to detect a variety of concealed objects in concrete at depths up to 5-7/8 inches: ferrous and non-ferrous, wood or plastic and electrical conduits.
MagnaShear motor brake employs oil shear technology to extend service life in demanding crane applications, especially those with frequent start/stop cycles. Oil shear technology transmits torque between lubricated surfaces, thereby eliminating wear on friction surfaces. A patented fluid recirculation system dissipates heat, eliminating a build-up condition identified as the most common problem in dry braking systems. Elimination of the wear significantly increases service life and virtually eliminates adjustment while elongating maintenance intervals.
Screw conveyor drive
Product engineers cite a compact, economical alternative to traditional screw conveyor drives: Closely stepped speed reduction ratios combined with a directly coupled gearmotor or NEMA C-face input design eliminates the need for top motor mounts, pulleys, belts or guards. Minimizing parts and eliminating the belted input systems ease maintenance, while drive performance. Screw conveyor drive options feature a Unicase reducer housing, Quadrilip reducer shaft sealing and high capacity output bearings with CEMA standard flange mounting and CEMA drive shafts ranging from 1.5 in. to 3-7/16 in.

Concrete Specialties ushers apilion-era Zublin machinery
Expanded capacity from asset acquisitions involving two peer operators, coupled with recession-rooted market rationalization, have positioned Evanston, Ill.-based Concrete Specialties Co. as a pipe and drainage structure leader serving northeastern Illinois and southern Wisconsin, from Milwaukee to Madison. From its Chicago home base, the family-owned operator covers a 75- to 150-mile market radius for concrete pipe, manhole and box culvert with plants in Elgin, Franklin Park and Romeoville, Ill., plus Kenosha, Wis.
A New Twist on Optimization
Many precast producers have devised engineering solutions netting orders for products or structures shipped beyond their typical service area. With deliveries to every state except Alaska, plus a recently fabricated product now bearing loads in China, few peers can match the geographic expanse Colorado Precast Co. (CPC) has reached from its Loveland plant, about 50 miles north of Denver.
