Transport bulk material with ease with our material conveying systems

Mechanical conveying is sometimes seen as a commodity, yet it plays an important role in overall plant productivity. The conveyors are considered the highways between processes and final products, so 24/7 operation is ideal.

A tough life


Belt conveyors transport highly abrasive bulk materials such as cement, clinker, limestone, coal and alternative fuels. Over time, these abrasive materials take a toll on the surfaces of the conveying equipment. Therefore, designing and building mechanical conveying equipment that lasts and operates reliably is top priority.


Know-how leads reliable design


When designing optimal mechanical conveying equipment, a thorough understanding of the loading and discharge applications is crucial. We have built extensive knowledge in these areas because we also have expertise and can offer the equipment that form a complete cement production line.


Here to help


Longer mechanical conveying systems consume a lot of energy, increasing your OPEX. We can help you find an ideal mechanical conveying solution that is more economical, safe and sustainable to operate. 


Continual innovation


We have a passionate Research and Development (R&D) team that works closely with customers to identify what has worked well with their mechanical conveying systems and areas for improvement. The design process for the In-Plant Belt Conveyor, for example, involved the use of modelling technology called discrete element modelling (DEM). The results helped inform material trajectory to minimise common mechanical conveying challenges.
