Whether on the suface or below ground, mining is the key industry for the extraction of resources from the Earth. Mines are typically vast in scale, which is matched by the impressive machinery and level of engineering required to support it. Mining is tough, with the combination of dust, hard processes and location making it one of the most demanding applications for any engineered product or system.
Altra Industrial Motion Corporation and its industry leading brands meet the power transmission demands of mining head on. Heavy duty clutches, brakes, couplings, holdbacks and backstopping clutches, speed reducers, gear motors, overload cluthes, belted and synchronious drives plus torque limiting devices are all offered – providing plenty of options for end users in the industry.
