With a view to further developing their capabilities within the market of the comminution industry, TAKRAF continues to develop their range of roller presses, with a scale model of a High-Pressure Grinding Roll (HPGR) on display at the booth. In order to meet the challenging longevity requirements of such a machine, each roll surface is protected from wear by weld hardfacing for cement applications, and with tungsten carbide inserts for ore processing.
With the integration of the DELKOR and Tenova Advanced Technologies (formerly Bateman Advanced Technologies) brand of products into TAKRAF as specialized product lines, the company‘s portfolio for the minerals processing and beneficiation sectors has been considerably enhanced. At bauma, visitors will be able to focus upon the company‘s capabilities in minerals processing, including Solvent Extraction (SX) and lithium recovery; as well as flotation, thickening, filtration and Dry Stack Tailings (DST).
Technical studies, which compare the techno-economic aspects of different system or equipment layouts are an intrinsic part of every investment process. The quality of the study strongly depends on the experience of the study team and the level of customer involvement. Based upon a common understanding of the weighting of all such decision criteria, the transfer of technical and operational experience and expertise, even beyond the own portfolio, is a key driver in enabling the customer to make a competent decision regarding the optimal solution for the specific conditions of their particular mine. Visitors can convince themselves of the expertise of the TAKRAF Mining Technology Center.
In order to provide additional benefits and services to the company‘s customers based on new digital technologies, several R&D projects in the field of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) have also been advanced. In an attempt to find the most suitable technology which results in the greatest possible benefit for the customer, first pilot machines were equipped with remote data collection and evaluation systems. Utilizing a combination of edge computing and a proprietary azure-based platform established by Tenova, TAKRAF is able to develop applications that provide valuable insights of the company‘s machines through modern and intuitive interfaces across any remote location. First results evince that this information can greatly assist in reducing downtime by identifying problems before they escalate into major issues and optimizing machine design, operation and performance.
