IAM unveils mix system

Strautmann importers IAM in Kilkenny is to introduce a new discharge system for vertical mixer wagons.

Similar to many others in the industry, Strautmann has added the conveyor system, which they call the C-conveyor, as an option on 7.5-28m3 models.

Conveyor systems on vertical diet mixer/feeders are increasingly being offered by manufacturers as a flexible method of coping with different housing and trough designs.

According to IAM, the new C-conveyor system is a crossover conveyor, which allows it to feed out on both sides and is based on a flexible frame structure.

As a pure crossover conveyor, it can discharge within a range of up to 400mm either side of the machine when the conveyor is in a central position. Operating as an 'elevating conveyor', the C-conveyor can discharge with an additional height of up to 600mm, bringing the overall discharge height up to 1.4m. It can do this on the left or right-hand side and with a lateral displacement of 400mm.

The conveyor system is operated entirely from the operator's seat.
