Drives and PLCs for crushers and mills

Reduced mechanical stress leading to increased lifetime


You need your crushers to be as efficient and economical as possible for the optimal production output of your mine. With the precise speed and torque provided by our low and medium voltage AC drives, the mechanical stress on the crusher and the motor is vastly reduced from smooth starting and stable speed control. This helps you reduce maintenance and increases equipment lifetime and uptime. And our products are backed by a global service and support network. 

The right speed. Correct torque. Efficiency. Everything counts for cost-efficient and dependable crushing.
