ArcelorMittal presents latest mining equipment at Bauma
ArcelorMittal is presenting its latest innovations in steel wire and ultra-high strength and wear-resistant steels at Bauma 2016, the world’s largest trade fair for construction and mining equipment which is currently taking place in Munich, Germany.
The product launches on display including Relia, ArcelorMittal’s new range of high hardness, low-alloyed martensitic steels, offering outstanding resistance to wear and abrasion. Principal applications include construction and earthmoving, mining and mineral processing, demolition, waste and recycling, where equipment is required to withstand abrasive environments in a reliable, durable and efficient way.
Visitors to Bauma can also discover Notor HP and Klondike, high-technology steel wire ropes. Produced by ArcelorMittal WireSolutions, the group’s European wire drawing division, these two products are the result of over 100 years of expertise, strong teamwork and extensive customer feedback, and offer multiple advantages for the mining and construction industries.
Developed for mining applications, Klondike launched in September 2015 and is already in operation in two mines in Poland and China. The rope can transport ores from deep underground mines with shafts up to 1,000 m deep at high speed (16 m/second). The rope is able to sustain up to 20 percent more load - a set of four Klondike ropes can carry a load of over 100 tonnes - and has a 40 percent longer lifetime than any other rope with the same diameter. Like Notor HP, Klondike is non-rotating, meaning it is very stable under load. Both products were manufactured at ArcelorMittal’s site of Bourg-en-Bresse, France, a worldwide leader in the production of high-technology steel wire ropes.
“We are constantly seeking to develop new innovative solutions, and these steel wire ropes are the perfect answer to the challenging conditions faced by our clients in the mining and construction industries,” said Patrick Laudamy, CEO of ArcelorMittal Wire Solutions.
