What's News in Plant & Equipment

Plantworx 2013Miller Launches Revolutionary Safety Device

A new device to enhance safety and reliability for the earthmoving industry has been launched by Miller International, the Newcastle-based manufacturer of buckets and couplers.

‘Miller Mate’ is an in-cab device that simplifies the safe and correct operation of a quick coupler during the attachment changeover process. It replaces the existing toggle style switch with a simple and intuitive full-colour LED interface which can be mounted in the cab of any new or existing plant.

“Miller Mate is a simple solution to a potentially serious problem,” said Keith Miller, Chairman of Miller International. “We realised that coupler safety has always focused on the design of the coupler itself, but if there is ever an incident with a quick coupler it is those working nearby who are affected. The new product helps to minimise the potential risks to those working in the vicinity of the machine.”

The in-cab display of Miller Mate shows graphic illustrations of the correct operating procedure as per the manufacturer’s recommendations. It encourages the operator to place the quick coupler in the correct positions throughout the attach and release processes. Miller Mate operates the hydraulic cylinder within the coupler only when the operator has confirmed they are at the correct stage of the process.

“We’re always looking out for the latest technology to ensure the safe operation of our machinery and when Miller showed us Miller Mate, we knew that we had to add it to our machines,” said Patrick Flannery, Director of Flannery Plant, one of the companies that has helped to develop Miller Mate.

Other key features of Miller Mate include the dynamic safety checks, which are carried out every time the unit is switched on, with potential problems displayed on the screen to alert the operator.

DL–series Screening Bucket demonstrated at Plantworx

The past few years as seen an increasing interest in screening buckets to provide additional versatility to excavators on sites where a dedicated screening unit is not economical. The Finnish company has been a pioneer of this technology and used the opportunity of Plantworx to demonstrate their latest model - the ALLU DL - design for use with up to 12 t excavators or 8 t loaders, tractors and backhoe loaders.

The core of the new screening bucket is the unique top screen where the screening blades spin between the top screen combs. The end product size is defined by the space between the combs.
