Visitors to Electra Mining Africa this year are looking for crushing and screening solutions that will boost productivity while enhancing sustainability – and Sandvik Rock Processing Solutions has what they need. Exciting developments in the company’s integrated offering of crushers, screens, screening media, lifecycle services and digital technologies will be on display with the company’s competent team on hand to share technical information and insights.

According to Tarynn Yatras, Vice President for Sales Area Africa at Sandvik Rock Processing Solutions, the lineup will include a working demonstration screen with digital connectivity. Yatras highlights how the company’s pioneering technology is driven by its aim to advance the world through engineering.

“We lead the way in eco-efficient rock processing, and will be talking to our visitors at Electra Mining Africa about how we help to drive their productivity, profitability and sustainability,” she explains. “Our wide range of quality products are combined with lifecycle services to give customers fully integrated solutions across the crushing and screening process.”

The focus on eco-efficiency ensures customers can process rock using the least possible resources. In addition to the multi-function test screen on the company’s exhibition stand, visitors can inspect and discuss the Sandvik screening media and cone crusher that will be on display.

“Another exciting element of our Electra Mining Africa presence will be the digital technology that enhances our equipment’s performance and longevity,” she says. “Our automation and connectivity system (ACS) will be on display, as applied to our cone crushers (ACS-c) and our screens (ASC-s).”

These connectivity systems link back to Sandvik’s digital SAM platform, which uses data to drive insights, support and performance. Visitors can view the products and see the technology in action, she says, learning more about remote condition monitoring of machines and related service offerings.

She highlights the value of customers being able to monitor both their crushers and their screens on the same digital platform – given how closely these phases of the comminution process must operate. This opens valuable opportunities for plant optimisation, especially with the depth of expertise imbedded in the Sandvik Rock Processing Solutions teams around Africa. The SAM platform also allows a user-defined data selection, to suit the particular role in the plant – from management to operator.

“Among our continuous improvements in condition monitoring has been an upgrade from wired sensors to self-powering sensors on our screens,” she says. Local digital experts and those from Sweden will be available on the Electra Mining Africa stand to discuss the systems in detail – including the range of benefits that customers can derive.

“Customers are also looking to ways to achieve their climate change goals while reducing costs, and we will be showcasing how we promote decarbonisation by reducing energy use through equipment optimisation,” says Yatras. “Our vision – as a leading player in the mining sector – is aiming for a more circular economy while driving productivity to extract maximum value from resources.”

This is achieved through the integrated offering of crushers, screens, screening media, lifecycle services and digital technologies. Added to this is Sandvik Rock Processing Solutions’ extensive support footprint across the continent – close to the customer with world class local facilities and expertise.
