W.S. Tyler announces transition to Haver & Boecker name

By |  March 17, 2015

W.S. Tyler announced at AGG1 that it is expanding to offer the full line of technology provided by its parent company, Haver & Boecker. To better align the company’s name with its new strategy and product offerings, the W.S. Tyler Screening Group will be known as Haver & Boecker.

The company says that, for period of transition, it will use the name Haver & Tyler. By the MINExpo International trade show in September 2016, the full transition to Haver & Boecker will be complete.

“Haver & Boecker has a long, established history of servicing not only the mining, aggregate and industrial minerals industries, but also the cement, chemical, building materials and food industries worldwide,” said Karen Thompson, president of W.S. Tyler. “In addition to our screening, washing and pelletizing equipment, the new portfolio also will include packing, liquid filling, palletizing, loading and storage technology. The move to the Haver & Boecker name represents growth here in North America, and most importantly more value to our customers.”

The W.S. Tyler Industrial Group in Mentor, Ohio, which produces laboratory equipment, such as testing sieves and shakers, and specializing in industrial applications of woven wire, will not be affected by this name change.

In other AGG1 news from W.S. Tyler, the company introduced the Pulse vibration analysis program. This innovation in vibration analysis gives mining and aggregate customers a means to optimum vibrating screen performance.

W.S. Tyler’s team of engineers, led by Dieter Takev, designed Pulse specifically to monitor the health of vibrating screens to ensure optimum screening performance and equipment durability. Understanding that small imbalances can lead to substantial and expensive problems, Pulse detects irregularities that could translate into diminished performance, decreased efficiency and increased operating costs for the vibrating screen. The reporting and historical tracking of the machine’s performance gives customers the information needed to minimize downtime and maximize productivity and profits.

Pulse was developed to be easy to operate. Components were specifically chosen and engineered for the harsh environments where screening takes place.

The Pulse program gives customers the hardware and software required to instantly record vibrations on their machine. That data is then transmitted to W.S. Tyler, where it is analyzed by the engineering team. The team then issues a report back to the customer including an analysis of the machine’s performance and recommendations for improvement. If the results are good, the customer has reassurance that the machine is healthy. If the results require a W.S. Tyler technician to examine the machine in person, a service call is scheduled.

The system consists of an industrial-grade tablet computer that uses wireless technology to connect with eight tri-axial sensors. The sensors are attached in key places to the equipment and send 24 channels of data to immediately illustrate the machine’s orbit, acceleration, deviations and more.
