Niche specialists

As demands for productivity in mining and aggregates operations rise, operators need a reliable source for critical parts. These parts must meet high standards for wear life and value.

Through continuous innovation within a very specialised niche, FLSmidth is recognised as a leading global provider of optimized replacement parts for mining and aggregates equipment.

Our product brand Excel™ has earned a formidable reputation for producing high quality replacement parts, integrity in conducting business, and reliability to meet even the shortest deadlines. 

Superior production expertise

We design, develop and manufacture steel, iron, and bronze wear parts; hydraulic cylinders and nearly any part needed to keep comminution equipment running smoothly. Our offerings include parts for most types of equipment, from cone and gyratory crushers, to screens, exciters, mills and more.

Through the last two decades, we have extended our replacement parts offering to include large-scale open-pit mining equipment, e.g. bushings and pins for hydraulic excavators, electric rope shovels and draglines. Additionally, we now offer customised wide path undercarriages for many models of hydraulic excavators and electric rope shovels.

Our leading edge

Our quality focus applies to the full value chain of our offerings, from analysis and testing, over innovation and manufacturing, to logistics and training. This provides you with more than just a specific part – it ensures added value in the shape of co-creation, knowledge sharing and engineering innovation.


When faced with equipment that has specific issues with performance or durability we always begin by applying our knowledge, experience and competencies. Through in-depth failure analysis and destructive testing, we can diagnose any issue. Based on our findings, our team of metallurgical specialists will come up with solutions for any challenge.


At Excel™, we are proud of our people and quality centric culture. We know that quality products alone do not make a success. However, combined with dedicated customer support, it makes a world of difference for our customers.

Through knowledge, quality and customer service, we ensure enhanced productivity for your operation, making your business more competitive than ever.

Quality redefined

Our high performance parts are backed by our Fit, Form and Function commitment. We inspect and re-inspect every part that leaves our dock. We know that our parts are used in mission critical equipment and that your success depends on our quality control. Our staff of skilled craftsmen strive to make every part perfect in every way. Our strict metallurgical standards in our foundry, our precision turning and machining processes and our inspection department all focus on our customer’s needs.

Our commitment

Any accurately identified component part that does not: fit properly into its machine or assembly; provide at least equal “form” properties to that of an original equipment manufacturer supplied part; or meet original equipment part functionality or wear life will be repaired or replaced.


Excel products are designed for dimensional accuracy to conform to the operational requirements of the application for each part.


Excel products are designed to conform to all necessary forms including, but not limited to: metallurgy, heat treatment, surface conditioning and surface finish.


Excel products are designed to provide function and performance equivalent or better than original equipment components used in the same application.

Passion for excellence

From the technician in the foundry pouring castings to the customer support representative taking your order, we are geared toward exceeding your most demanding needs. We build quality and reliability into everything we do.

A brief history of EXCEL™

Founded in 1929 under the name Excel Brass & Machine in Pekin, Illinois, the company specialised in manufacturing small brass bushings and fittings. During the 1970s, the company changed its focus towards the production of bronze wear parts for the active mining industry in the Midwest United States. This development was motivated by the fact that mining companies had difficulties sourcing OEM parts for their equipment.

Since the very beginning, the company philosophy has been to provide high quality parts and unequalled service to the end-users of mission critical heavy equipment. In combination with the ability to meet even the shortest deadlines, Excel™ is by many customers perceived as the place to go for replacement parts for the mining and aggregates industries.

Today, Excel is renowned as a full-line provider of high performance crusher replacement parts, mill lift inserts, undercarriage components for many models of shovels and a growing line of replacement parts for large-scale open-pit mining equipment.
