Raw material extraction
Quality products for optimised raw material extraction
Be it in conveyor belt systems in Chilean copper mines or on transport, rotating and lifting drives on bucket wheel excavators or coal excavators, as well as in spreaders in Kazakh open-cast coal mining: Plant operators throughout the world trust in the quality products from EMG Automation GmbH.
With the extraction of raw materials, both above and below ground, enormous quantities of material must be transported and conveyed. High quality and powerful products are required for this, in order to guarantee smooth procedures and minimise downtimes.
EMG impresses with many years of experience in this segment, and delivers brake system safety. Be it operating or holding brakes on transport, rotating and lifting mechanisms, as well as on conveyor belts: Brakes with brake thrusters from EMG provide you with the safety that you expect.
Our powerful hydraulic compact drives from the HKA range can also be found in a wide variety of different applications. These are employed in conveyor belt deflection stations in surface mining for example, or for adjusting conveyor belt chutes, as well as in impact wall drives.
Alongside the seamless operation of EMG products in all installation locations, the logistical and planning assurance provided by EMG is a guarantee for optimised raw material extraction.
Solutions for mining and open pit
Minerals represent a part of ingredients for the steel and iron production and are extracted in mines. The raw materials to produce slabs and further raw materials for other industries are transported away from the mines by conveyor systems or trucks.
For the mine operator, the transport customer, and the processor of the raw materials, it is crucial to know the exact quantity of the extracted, transported and delivered raw materials. Exact volume measurement, for example, is used for this purpose, which allows false declarations to be ruled out and contributes to the digitalisation of the entire process.
How much material is in my stockpile? How much material is being conveyed exactly? How high are my wagons filled? Does my machine collide with people, other machines or the stockpile? Where is the material, what is the 3D-profile for the automatic operation of my stacker or reclaimer?
These are just a few of our customers' questions.
