Dear reader,


Crushing, grinding, screening and sorting are the most commonly used techniques in treatment processes of mineral substances. In this traditional area, completely new innovations are hardly ever invented; however, machine manufacturers continuously work on improvements and optimizations of their plants and systems. An outstanding example for this is described in our cover story “Optimized” from page 6. The new OSCILLA expansion shaft is launched right before the company’s 100th anniversary and promises long service life as well as minimized maintenance effort.


Immediately after the ever-present summer slump, RecyclingAKTIV will be on the agenda. The Messe Karlsruhe will welcome more than 220 exhibitors and some 10 000 visitors from September 5 to 7, 2019. Further information is provided from page 26.


Enjoy your reading and have a relaxing summer!

Dr. Petra Strunk
