AUMUND: Efficient solutions for the conveying and storage of problematic bulk materials

For the last 25 years AUMUND Fördertechnik has exhibited at every edition of Munich’s bauma. AUMUND’s first experience of trade fair participation goes back to the mining fair in Essen in 1954, the same year that the very first bauma took place in Munich. In 2016 participation in trade fairs remains paramount for the AUMUND Group. It is the ideal arena for getting together with international customers, creating new business contacts, presenting the newest product developments and solutions, and showing the latest reference installations supplied all over the world. At this years bauma all three product companies of the AUMUND Group were exhibiting; AUMUND Fördertechnik, SCHADE Lagertechnik and the UK operation, SAMSON Materials Handling.


AUMUND creates flexible, individual solutions for their customers, based on standard components. Bucket elevators, pan conveyors, chain conveyors, silo technology and extraction and discharge systems are designed with maximum capacities and meet the highest technical demands. The installation on site is supervised by specialised engineers and after sales service personnel. Vertical conveyors of up to 180 m, solutions for crusher feeding and discharge of up to 11 000 t/h as well as pressure shock resistant conveyors are representative examples of the strength of the AUMUND solutions. Metered silo feeding and metered silo extraction as well as dust suppressed loading of ships, railway wagons and trucks complete the product portfolio of the AUMUND Group.


The minerals sector is increasingly convinced by AUMUND’s worldwide experience in the construction of specialised machinery. Besides the flagship classics, such as belt bucket elevators and pan conveyors, the installed heavy plate conveyors for crusher feeding are proving that AUMUND has more to show for itself than decades of experience in limestone processing. Growth in market share has been achieved over many years, not only in the sale of new machinery, but also by AUMUND’s after sales service and conversion departments, with their own solutions for increasing productivity and minimising manufacturing down times and maintenance costs. Conversions of equipment using AUMUND components are carried out on AUMUND’s and others’ machines.


AUMUND is always in close proximity to its customers, thanks to its ten sales subsidiaries in Europe, Asia, North and South America, along with four service centres and spare parts warehouses in Germany, USA, Hong Kong and Brazil.


SCHADE Lagertechnik has been one of the leading manufacturers of stacking and reclaiming technology for bulk materials stockyards and blending beds for more than 135 years. Its roots are in the coal-fired power industry, but it has also become a market leader in the cement industry with its longitudinal and circular storage and blending bed technology. SCHADE Lagertechnik also offers machinery and solutions for customers in the minerals/raw materials industry as well as in ports and terminals, taking advantage of the international network of the AUMUND Group’s worldwide sales partners.


SAMSON Materials Handling has been manufacturing a large range of engineered solutions and mobile equipment for bulk materials for the last 50 years. Samson® Material Feeder, Stormajor® Boom Feeder, Eco Hopper and Link Conveyor are just some of its successfully established types of mobile machines for the transportation of minerals and bulk materials in the most varied of industries, such as mining, ports facilities or in the power industry. SAMSON too, is supported by the international sales network of AUMUND branches.
