Mining, Mineral and Metal

 
Germany has a strong basic industry. Think of the metallurgical enterprises, foundry and construction materials producers, from roof and other tiles to bricks. However, it is not a given that these companies can continue to operate in our small, overcrowded country. Governments are committed to making increasingly stringent requirements regarding permits, and local residents are making themselves heard.
 
Survival in this sector begins with robust installations that operate reliably. Transmissions and controls deliver high capacities and must be able to switch quickly. Today they need to run as energy efficiently as possible, with the focus on minimal costs and CO2 emissions. The deployment of variable-frequency drives is therefore becoming more and more common in the sector. This also helps to better align the handling in the production line with the – sometimes fragile – products that pass along it. This raw materials sector therefore also requires high-quality automation. The technical distributor can provide broad advice and of course also the necessary mechanical and electrotechnical supplies and technology.
 
In addition, all components in an installation must be resistant to dust and dirt, and often also heat and moisture. However, under these highly demanding circumstances, unavoidable malfunctions will occur, which should be remedied as quickly as possible. This applies not only when the continuity of production is under threat, but most certainly also when such malfunctions are associated with unwanted emissions of any kind into the environment. Companies therefore need to have their parts supply and servicing in good order. In close consultation with the technical value-added distributor they can establish this efficiently. This ensures collaboration with this broadly oriented partner in all aspects of smooth operation in heavy industry.
