Tools for the Trade New Software with Terex Finlay Track-Mounted Equipment BedRock Software has announced the addition of Terex Finlay Track-Mounted (mobile) equipment to its AggFlow simulation program. This includes the complete Terex Finlay line of track mounted crushing and screening equipment. AggFlow is used by aggregate producers, equipment manufacturers and dealers to simulate aggregate and mining operations. AggFlow users can calculate mass aggregate and mass water balances flowing through a plant simulation using both stationary and mobile equipment, optimizing and maximizing production of desired products. AggFlow simulations help identify inefficiencies and bottlenecks, assess the impact of proposed changes or new equipment before they are made and reduce plant down-time and production errors. The program provides quick access to technical data and offers the ability to conduct unlimited “what-if?” scenarios. Users can select from the pre-populated equipment data library or install their own equipment models in the program using the generic equipment application. Currently, the program provides calculations for more than 4,000 models of aggregate crushing, screening and washing equipment.

They can handle a wide range of jobs, including rock loading, logging and material handling. The Volvo L150G has a breakout force of 45,187 pounds and a bucket capacity of 5.2 cubic yards. The Volvo L180G has a breakout force of 50,537 pounds and a bucket capacity of 6.3 cubic yards. The Volvo L220G, designed for extremely rugged work conditions, has a breakout force of 51,301 pounds and a bucket capacity of 7.3 cubic yards. These forces are all generated from Volvo’s new rehandling buckets, specifically designed for easier pile penetration to increase fuel efficiency and performance. All three G-Series wheel loaders are equipped with Volvo D13 Tier 4i engines featuring Volvo Advanced Combustion Technology (V-ACT) to comply with EPA exhaust emissions legislation. V-ACT provides the engine with higher torque at lower speeds, leading to higher fuel efficiency. The new OptiShift transmission also increases fuel efficiency and lowers fuel consumption for the G-Series wheel loaders.
