KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens has released its new Wizard Touch stockpile automation system with expanded options for added versatility and enhanced productivity.

The Wizard Touch automation technology is designed to prevent material segregation and degradation. The refined system features an expanded selection of stockpile options and is capable of inputting multiple stockpile recipes for operation diversity, according to Jodi Heirigs, product manager of KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens.

“Our Wizard Touch system truly leads the industry in sophisticated stockpile automation technology,” Heirigs said. “The system is engineered for user-friendly diagnostics, comes standard with factory pre-set programming, and can be customized out in the field as well.”

The Wizard Touch system includes an easy-to-use, fully-programmable PLC controller and a new, 12-in. colored touchscreen for enhanced usability.

The Wizard Touch is exclusively available for KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens’ SuperStacker telescoping radial stacker. The road-portable SuperStacker is essential to building a desegregated stockpile, increasing stockpile capacity by 30 percent, and ensuring the quality of in-spec product. In-spec material prevents costly expenses associated with reprocessing materials, eliminating re-blending and product discounting. By controlling the extension of the stinger conveyor, radial travel and conveyor incline, producers can build layered windrows to minimize stockpile segregation, according to the company.
