W.S. Tyler, the premium screening solutions company in the mining, aggregate and industrial mineral industries, has dedicated a team of engineers to a new department focused specifically on innovation, design and engineering. The Innovation Department constantly works with its global subsidiaries within the Haver & Tyler group, to develop new breakthroughs that improve machine performance and customer profitability.
Haver & Tyler originally formed an Innovation Department in Germany in 2008 to keep a clear focus on innovation. The new W.S. Tyler department based in North America builds on that success.
Dieter Takev, engineering and technology manager, says the W.S. Tyler Innovation Department is developing new technologies and incorporating advancements from other companies within the Haver & Tyler group. By forming a department strictly focused on improvements for existing machinery and brand-new technologies, W.S. Tyler is able to provide more advanced technologies and products, as well as better service for customers.
“We’ve dedicated specific resources to our company’s research and development. To offer our customers tools to be successful, we need to reinforce our position as the industry leader in continually developing solutions that enhance profitability,” Takev said. “This department does that, and the results are stronger partnerships in helping customers grow.”
W.S. Tyler’s Innovation Department is working to develop high-pressure washing technology for typical applications in North America, where high tonnage outputs and mobile units are in high demand. Further, the team has been developing its vibration analysis technology for vibrating screens so it can be integrated with Wi-Fi and cloud-based technologies. Since it was formed, the Innovation Department developed the 10-foot tandem F-Class machines and has invested in component improvements to reduce stresses by 60 percent, all while keeping the same footprint, weight and price for the machines.
Takev said the combination of North and South America-specific solution development with technologies established for the European market makes this concept uncommon in the industry.
“We don’t just do research and development,” he said. “We combine our global talent to ensure that the innovation we bring to each continent meets and exceeds the needs of the customers there.”
