BAUMA 2013 hensive network of regional dealers and service partners across this territory. This important decision regarding the manufacturer's global market coverage follows the cooperation agreement with the nationwide Canadian dealer, Wajax, the first ADTs for which have already left the Bell factory in Eisenach, Germany. In the Americas, Bell will start by introducing the larger D-Series trucks, which will see the "heavyweights," the B45D and B50D, available in the North American markets for the first time. The full Bell range, with the new E-Series small trucks will be available from the beginning of 2014. All Bell Equipment activities in North America will be monitored through its own company, Bell Equipment North America (BENA). This includes the exclusive supply of Tier 4i- COMPANY PROFILE- PAID ADVERTISEMENT TRIO Engineered Products, Inc. Building Solutions Together Founded in 1998, TRIO has grown from a supplier of smaller vibrating and washing equipment to a world class manufacturer with a complete line of crushing, vibrating, washing and conveying equipment. TRIO combines superior manufacturing techniques with innovative engineering to generate an extensive range of durable, productive, and reliable equipment for the aggregate and mining industries around the world. Our sales and engineering teams work closely with our customers to provide single machines, partial systems or complete plant solutions. TRIO has made a major expansion into supplying crushers, screens and feeders to the mining industry over the past five years. Particularly in the fast track heap leach crushing and screening operations around the globe. TRIO has been able to provide high value plant solutions and a compressed development time from conception through commissioning that is unmatched in the industry. Our clients have enjoyed the benefited of TRIO's vast array of pre-designed engineered drawings for modular structures. These bolt-together modules enable adjusting structure elevations, tailoring access points and maintenance platforms, providing feed and discharge options and incorporating smart, user-friendly features into each plant design. TRIO's material handling products included portable radial stackers, telescoping conveyors, overland conveyors and feed systems. These products often utilize our line of components including idlers, pulleys, shafts and reducers. TRIO's U.S. and Asian manufacturing facilities are complemented by several service and support centers. Warehouses in California, Alabama and Florida are able to respond with quick parts deliveries. TRIO's support staff works hard to service our customers around the globe which includes TRIO team members located in the USA, U.K., Ireland, China, Australia, India, South Africa, Brazil, Chile and Argentina.

"We're extremely focused on this development, as this will generate important sales through all the truck classes, as well as secure our European production and parts activities in the long term," Bell said. Bell Equipment will also intensify its South American business through cooperating with strong partners and being active in several Latin and South American markets. The supply and support of respective units will be managed by Bell Equipment International Operations. Hydraulic Hybrid Concepts Dana introduced the Spicer PowerBoost System, a new line of integrated hydraulic-hybrid powertrain concepts for the off-highway market, at bauma 2013. Deployed through series or parallel hybrid configurations that fit into existing vehicle designs with minimal adaptation, Spicer PowerBoost supplements all types of transmission architectures. The system captures kinetic energy otherwise wasted throughout the drivetrain and working hydraulics, and then uses this recuperated energy to help power the vehicle, which can reduce fuel consumption by 20% to 40% compared to conventional drivetrain concepts, depending on vocational application and duty cycle. It can also reduce total owning and operating costs by increasing productivity, reducing maintenance, and allowing for the use of a downsized engine. Functional prototypes demonstrating the performance of the system will be available for field testing by OEMs in the second quarter of 2013. "Dana has pioneered powertrain innovations for more than a century, and Spicer PowerBoost exemplifies an ongoing commitment to research and development that leverages our extensive systems knowledge and increases value to both our OEM customers and end users," said Aziz Aghili, president of Dana OffHighway Driveline Technologies. "In an era when equipment manufacturers are finding it difficult to identify incremental gains in efficiency, this technology offers a tremendous leap forward in productivity and reduced costs that easily fits into existing design envelopes."
