50 • June 2018 INNOVATIONS EQUIPMENT & PRODUCTS Kraft Systems' new T-Rex Granulat Dispenser distributes rectangular or disc-shaped low density polyethylene plastic bits across paving stone production pallets. A surface protection alternative to netting products, the plastic granulates prevent layer-to-layer contact, elim- inating the potential for scratches and abrasion. The mechanically flexible LDPE bits act like a rubber mat to effectively secure finished product and curtail movement or skipping. Once adjusted for granulate volume and distribution, the T-Rex runs without supervision and is equipped with electro-optical sen- sors to detect passing load. The device is operated from a control cabinet with an HMI panel (speed adjustment, hopper height), and is available with additional programs to change granulate dispens- ing speeds. Optional equipment and offerings include software for advanced control settings; remote control; three-color light machine status indicator; and, control cabinet heating. — Kraft Systems Inc., Fairless Hills, Pa., Kraft Systems thinks granular for premium paver protection Unveiled at Icon Expo 2018, the T-Rex has a 125-liter capacity granulate hopper and suits paver production lines up to 1,800-mm wide and product layers up to 40-mm high. Industrial Services International has announced the availability of an inline, paving stone production pallet cleaner from Germany's Weber Burstensysteme, for whom ISI serves as a North American represen- tative. The device is available with three or four brushes, wire or plastic depending on pallet size and composition. ISI premiered the pallet cleaner at the Icon Expo 2018 – Machinery & Equipment Show in Indianapolis. — Industrial Services International LLC, Potomac, Md., 240/994-7154; PRODUCTION PALLET CLEANER
