Page 40 of 55 June 2019 • 39 INNOVATIONS REPORT BESSER PREMIER Besser engineers designed simple, easy to operate controls for the Premier. The intuitive, touchscreen control has reduced the amount of time required to train Mutual Materials team members on machine operation. The Allen-Bradley package for the Premier features new con- trols for the board stacker and destacker, along with all wet side operations. In addition to the main console shown here and companion four-panel Allen-Bradley installation, Besser delivered a new hydraulic power unit for the existing walking beam conveyor. Unit-checking Op-Smart technology provides real time information about plant operations for addressing immediate production issues and monitoring long-term trends to pinpoint areas for improvement. The Premier machine assures quality production of Mutual Materials' Old Dominion pavers and companion hardscape offerings, including the Eco-Priora permeable paver system (above left).
