Sandvik Mining and Schenck Process have signed a global partnership agreement that provides increased crushing circuit productivity for Schenck Process double- and single-deck high-capacity multislope screens and Sandvik high-productivity cone crushers. It also enables a single-service provider approach to support customers throughout the entire plant life cycle.

Schenck is a leading supplier of solutions for screening applications in mining. Sandvik has a reputation as a leading supplier of crushers and crushing technologies. This cooperation provides in-depth understanding of mining customers’ equipment, together with process knowledge that will enable them to raise their crushing plant performance.

“This partnership agreement allows our customers to raise their overall crushing and screening plant productivity by focusing on process efficiency in its entirety, as opposed to individual pieces of equipment,” said Mary Verschuer, president of minerals and metals for the Schenck Process Group. “Midtier miners are often looking for a system solution across the crushing circuit, and with this partnership, they will benefit from the best solutions from Sandvik and Schenck Process product lines in a single offering,”

The agreement covers both new crushing and screening plants and replacements. “In terms of replacements, Sandvik’s high-productivity cone crushers and Schenck Process’ high-capacity multislope screens have a compact footprint, thus allowing for cost-effective upgrades using existing infrastructure,” said Jonas Olsson, vice president of crushing and screening for Sandvik Mining. “Productivity increases of 20%-30% can be achieved within the existing infrastructure.”
