Putzmeister America, Inc. Debuts New Telebelt® Model at CONEXP0 2008

Sturtevant, Wisconsin (April 28, 2008) -- Every three years the CONEXPO-CON/AGG show hits Las Vegas, Nevada with a bang and Putzmeister America, Inc. is there to showcase its newest and most customer-focused products, services and technologies. This year is no exception, with the introduction of the company’s new Telebelt® TB 600 truck-mounted telescopic belt conveyor.

The TB 600 features a rated output of 600 cubic yards per hour (459m³/hr) and has been engineered to meet high volume material placement demands.

Putzmeister America, Inc.’s new Telebelt® TB 600 truck-mounted telescopic belt conveyor was designed with civil contractors in mind and meets high volume demands.

“Designed with civil contractors in mind, the TB 600 is perfect for those seeking a 50 percent production increase,” says Putzmeister America Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Bill Dwyer.

With a 24"-wide high capacity main conveyor and feeder belt, the TB 600 offers versatility in material type and volume. The machine will place all flowable materials, such as pervious concrete, roller-compacted concrete (RCC), soil, cement, flowable fill and large aggregates up to 6" (152mm) in diameter. The feed conveyor also offers fully hydraulic variable speed capabilities. Both belts feature 360° continuous rotation for maximum flexibility in setup.

“The benefits of the TB 600 can be fully realized on volume-intensive job sites like landfill linings where the sheer quantity of material to be placed exceeds the capabilities of other methods,” notes Dwyer. “The TB 600 can truly help expedite the process and reduce the time needed for job completion up to 30 percent. Like all Telebelts, this new model saves time and labor by handling multiple tasks from a single location on a job site.”

Other standard features of the TB 600 include:

  • Low unfolding height of only 15' 4" (4.70m)
  • A 102' (31.08m) horizontal reach
  • Four-section telescopic boom
  • Modular Boom Control (MBC) system for the main conveyor functions
  • Ergonomic and lightweight proportional radio and cable remote controls

Visitors saw firsthand the benefits of Putzmeister’s TB 600 at CONEXPO-CON/AGG. In addition to the new Telebelt model, Putzmeister also showcased its 63Z-Meter truck-mounted concrete boom pump, a placing system including a 38Z-Meter detach boom, pin tower and BSA 14000-HPD high pressure trailer pump, and a TK 70 trailer-mounted pump.
