Mining

The mining industry procures the necessary resources for many industrial sectors

The mining industry procures the necessary resources for many industrial sectors. Machines in this
industry must withstand extreme loads and are therefore subject to a high risk of failure. High
system availability and also industrial safety are of utmost importance. Supplying fresh
air and pumping outground water, for example, are essential for the survival of the miners.
Failure of a component can avoided by specific preventive and corrective maintenance.

Typical machines and installations used in mining:

  • Large excavators
  • Conveyor systems
  • Transport belts
  • Pumps and fans
  • Crusher
  • Mills
  • Compressors.


PRUFTECHNIK offers solutions for key applications in the mining sector such as:

  • Shaft alignment of coupled machines 
  • Flatness measurement of flanges and gear rings
  • Vibration-based condition monitoring of drives, bearings and gears.


The stringent requirements for equipment in potentially explosive areas are typical for these
industries. That is why PRUFTECHNIK takes these requirements into account in the development
of its measurement systems and sensors; each new product being also offered in an
explosion-proof version.
