Cologne, Germany – During mining and subsequent storage of bauxite, a sedimentary rock for the production of aluminium oxide, a lot of dust is thrown up, which is a major challenge especially for the moving machine parts of the conveyor units. For this reason, Aluminium Oxid Stade GmbH (AOS), one of the major German alumina producers, decided to use energy chains from motion plastics specialist igus. For several years now, they have reliably supplied conveyor units and stockpiling equipment with energy, data and media.
