Mining, Mineral and Metal

 

The Netherlands 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.

    ECJ Automation’s Jurgen Janssens tested itsme's web platform
    Good feedback enhances every result. The same applies to the itsme Group’s new web platform for which customers shared their experiences during the testing phase. One of them is Jurgen Janssens of ECJ Automation from Gierle, Belgium. At the request of itsme Breemes he went through, and tested the platform before it went live. “Functionality comes first. And that has been well thought out with this platform.”

    Aldel Vigorously through the Cryolite
    The smelting of aluminium requires breaking through a thick crust of cryolite, countless times in a row, at high temperatures. For Damco Aluminium Delfzijl Coöperatie \(Aldel\) therefore, using an ordinary cylinder was not an option. This in contrast with the new crust-breaker. Designed by IMI Norgren and supplied by itsme, this cylinder will last for years and is good for many breakings through.
