For the 2022 season, GRIMME is introducing the SL 900 and SL 700 series telescopic belt loaders with a completely redesigned design that combines maximum throughput with optimal product gentleness and user-friendly handling. Telescopic belt loaders can be used to store potatoes, onions, red beets, celery and other bulk products.
The SL 900 series - the new extra-class
The new SL 900 series is an improvement on the proven SL 80 series. Compared to the previous model, the belt width has been increased from 800 mm to 900 mm. In addition, the trough shape of the conveyor belt has been optimized in cross-section. As a result, an even higher throughput can be achieved.
At lower volumes of loaded product, it is possible to work with a reduced belt speed, which has a positive effect on gentle product handling.
The SL 900 series consists of two models, SL 916 with conveyor belt lengths from 9,7 m to 16,5 m and SL 919 with conveyor belt lengths from 11,2 m to 19,5 m. Optionally available for both models Quantum loading conveyor that provides a consistently low transfer height regardless of the swing angle of the telescopic belt loader. In addition, the Quantum Feed Conveyor allows for an increased turning radius of up to 180 ° and increased storage capacity by optimizing product flow.
With the Quantum loading conveyor, the transport length is increased on the SL 916 to a maximum of 17,7 m, and on the SL 919 to a maximum of 20,7 m.
SL series 700 - with Quantum loading conveyor and intelligent storage filling functions
The new telescopic belt loaders of the SL 700 series are equipped with a 66 cm wide and 16,5 m long conveyor belt. This machine can also be optionally equipped with a Quantum loading conveyor. As a result, a maximum transport length of 17,7 m can be realized.
The SL 700 series now has, like the SL 900 series, new storage filling functions and new, intuitive operation.
More comfort thanks to new storage filling functions
The new telescopic belt loaders offer a choice of three new storage filling functions:
With this storage filling function, the telescopic belt loader reverses the direction of rotation as soon as the freely positioned limit guards are detected by optical sensors on the undercarriage. For an even product contour, the filling time of the product in the corners of the storage can be manually adjusted.
The optionally available storage filling function StoreMatic-PLUS recognizes using ultrasonic sensors at the head of the wall or storage obstacles. In addition, the automation registers cavities on the horizontal surface of the product and fills them, reducing the swing speed. Optionally, the belt loader can be equipped with an automatic retraction function and
self-lifting of the telescopic conveyor belt at the turning points.
This top-level development contains the functionality of StoreMatic-BASIC and StoreMatic-PLUS, which can also be expanded with additional intelligent functions.
The turning radius for the right and left can be adjusted separately and independently of each other. These parameters can be adapted even during the current vault loading process using the CCI 800 remote control.
In addition, there is the function of filling the corners of the storage, self-changing the stacking level, as well as continuous adaptation of the unloading height and the ability to individually adjust the maximum storage height.
With the StoreMatic-PRO, the user is provided from the factory with three PreSets for the storage loading process: maximum performance, maximum gentle product handling and an optimal combination of high performance with high product savings at the same time. Thanks to these presets, it is possible to adjust the required parameters of the telescopic belt loader much more intuitively.
An easy-to-understand machine control structure is provided by the control surface of the CCI 800, which provides a clear display of the data measured by the sensors as well as the machine settings.
Settings such as speed, turning radii or storage height can be saved as event frames indicating storage location and product and recalled when needed.
For all machines in storage technology, the Flow Control line control system is offered, with which the user can switch the entire storage line on and off. The most important functions of the telescopic belt loader can be configured using the optional radio remote control.
Compact machine design
The new generation telescopic belt loaders are characterized by their open and slender design with counterweights located on the side of the machine. This reduces the build-up of dirt and impurities on the undercarriage and significantly increases free access to components for maintenance work. The drawbar can be conveniently folded to the side, there is no need to dismantle it. Serial, hydraulic adjustment from transport to working position is carried out conveniently from the control panel.
