For decades, conveyors have been used as a staple machine in various material handling processes. And as times changed, demands grew, so did the need for different types of conveyor systems. And these days, with industries leaning towards automated processes, conveyors are now a critical part of automation systems! They are most commonly used in industries that are required to:
handle bulk materials – such as the food processing industry
transport heavy machinery, for instance – construction companies
move large volumes of resources from one place to another.
Pershing County, Nevada, USA – A global leader in the design and manufacture of conveyor components has helped the largest primary silver producer in North America to mitigate fugitive material and increase safety by upgrading the company’s bulk handling system. Coeur Mining, Inc. was experiencing excessive dust and spillage on the conveyor leading from the crusher to the surge pile, which lowered air quality, required 5-10 man-hours per day to clean, and caused unscheduled downtime from premature equipment failure. Martin Engineering installed a transfer point load zone using EVO® Conveyor Architecture that contains dust and spillage by centering and controlling cargo, resulting in reduced maintenance, improved workplace safety and a lower cost of operation.

Transportadora Callao S.A., the logistics operator of a special cargo terminal in the port of Callao, Peru, relies on a BEUMER Group Pipe Conveyor for the transportation of zinc, copper and lead concentrates of different mining companies from the warehouse to the terminal. With its ability to navigate curves in three dimensions, the conveyor can be optimally adapted to its routing course of approx. 3000 metres. What is even more important: the conveying system prevents the concentrates from coming in contact with the environment and ensures dust-free transport to the ship’s holds. BEUMER Group was responsible for engineering and supply, including the steel structure, supervision of the installation and putting the Pipe Conveyor into operation.
Hebei Fenjin is the manufacturer specialized in various types of conveyor rollers and idlers, conveyor pulleys, belt conveyors, belt cleaners, impact beds, roller frames, etc. High quality and competitive prices.

Open-pit mining often relies on excavators and trucks for the extraction and subsequent removal and transport of the material. Diesel is the standard energy source used to run the machinery. This mining method has several disadvantages, for example high operating costs (for fuel, personnel, accommodation, travelling and maintenance), a high safety risk (caused by the effects of the weather or by the human factor) or a heavy burden on the environment (caused by CO2 and noise emissions).
