Construction Machinery & Mining

Construction machinery technology and mining

The over-dimensioned technology in the area of construction and mining requires the availability of cast parts of the highest level of quality. This is achieved by a wide range of materials, especially in the alloyed cast steel segment. Our cast parts are used on shaft shovels for large excavators, mining trucks and general digging technology.

Description and definition

The technical prerequisites in the areas of construction machinery technology and mining have increased over recent years. Casting parts of the highest quality grading are used in various different areas. In doing so, focus is placed on stability at the highest loads, precision in terms of function and fit as well as optimal material selection. The production of construction machinery technology and mining products is based on different casting methods and can be realised with a shipping weight of up to 9 tons.

Comprehensive range of services

Sprockets and guide wheels, runners and supporting axles or end plates are the most frequently ordered parts in the area of construction machinery technology and mining. Furthermore, housings, cable drums and retaining rings, bearing flanges and wheel hubs are produced using casting methods and developed for construction machinery technology. Alloyed cast steel is used for most parts of construction machinery technology and mining. This material is characterised by its high stability with good ductility at the same time as well as low wear. In addition to casting, the range of services for construction machinery technology and mining include the mechanical post-processing of finished parts as well as the treatment of surfaces for complete weather resistance and durability.

Casting parts of the highest quality grade

Quality is of utmost importance in construction machinery technology and mining. Break-proof, non-corrosive and low-wear materials offer the best performance and ensure the error-free and highly function use. The entire manufacturing process is subject to quality control in regular intervals to ensure a consistently high quality. This does not refer to samples, but to the testing of each individual part.

Experience and competence in construction machinery technology and mining

Longstanding experience and the use of the latest technologies as well as tried and tested methods substantiate the quality characteristics of all parts produced by the Silbitz group in construction machinery technology and mining. The competence and expertise in simulation and construction, modelling and casting as well as quality testing and logistics offer a full service concept in accordance with customer requirements and area of application. The shape, dimension and materials must be optimally and accurately selected for use in large excavators, mining trucks and general drilling engineering. Therefore, the Silbitz group is always there for advice and support.

Professional construction machinery technology in use

Manufacturing products for construction machinery technology or mining requires expertise and know-how, knowledge of materials as well as professional capabilities in simulation and design. Alloyed steel is the material of preference for long-term use under difficult conditions and continuous utilisation in different weather conditions. Construction machines are only as dependable and functional as the individual parts produced in casting or model form methods and designed to meet the requirements in use.
