Reliable Solutions for most Mining Applications

Mechanical drive technology from Flender

The fastest haul truck, the largest ball mill, the fastest conveyor belt, the strongest crusher, the largest roller press…Gigantic machines in mines all over the world move or process billions of tonnes of material every day. They all want to be driven. Also, because of the often difficult environmental conditions at altitudes of 5,000 m above sea level, or underground in tropical regions, or at temperatures below 40°C, many applications involve superlative drive technology from Flender.

However, the typical mine environment is not only marked by extreme dust and dirt influences. A major problem of many mines is also their location far from civilization, accessibility, water and energy. For this very reason, frequently interlocking process steps do not allow any downtime – a stopped application causes unrest in the process. And it costs money. This is especially true for mines. That is why drive technology for mining is always about two things: efficiency and reliability.

The German drive technology specialist Flender has been at home in the mine for decades and has earned the reputation of being a dependable partner with extremely reliable products. Its global setup, and the holistic approach with which Flender consistently designs its product and service portfolio, also focus on absolute system availability. This holistic approach is not limited to the gearbox. It also includes all clutches, digitalisation and drive peripherals. Thus, excavators and mining trucks, cranes and crushers, apron and conveyor belts, vertical and tube mills, roller presses and rotary kilns are kept in motion.

Industry insiders know that Flender supplies modern standards at the highest technical level in every size. Decades of relationships with plant manufacturers and mine operators enable discussions at eye level – and a successful cooperation in many innovation projects. Thus, the Bocholt-based machine builder can further develop competences and use them profitably for long-term customer relations for many more superlative references.
