A Romanian magazine Masini si Utilaje carried the Element's recent entering the Balkan market. Now, the quarries and mining enterprises in the region are able to substantially cut operating costs by purchasing alternative parts.
Since the start of the company, Element has never looked back. “As a tech start-up, we decided to invest in modern technology from the very beginning,” Production Director Sergey Kolesnikov says. “We’ve never worked without 3D scanning technology.”
When the parts of one product are manufactured in several different places, there is a good reason to pay attention to the quality of each component. By using the case of the set of wear and spare parts for slurry pumps, we’ll illustrate how Element ensures a perfect match between its product and its customers’ requirements.
Over 2020, Element, a manufacturer of mining equipment, received two times more orders in relation to 2019, and delivered to its customers over 1,600 tons of products. In spite of the quarantine regulations in effect across the world, in 2020, Element exceeded its own goals. The manufacturer extended its trade and partner network in the CIS region, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
Starting from 2021, Element, the manufacturer of wear and spare parts for mining equipment, starts its collaboration with a new key dealer in Eurasia — Nordfelt. Throughout 2020, Element has increased its order volume by 2 times, has spanned new markets and has taken hold in Eurasian enterprises. In Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, and Armenia, the Element brand is represented by the company’s key partner — Sever Minerals. In the CIS region, along with Sever Minerals, Nordfelt has become an official representative of Element.
Element witnesses constantly increasing demand for the wear parts of impact crushers belonging to various brands. Quarries seek solutions to reduce maintenance costs while increasing the between-repair run of the equipment. In this article, you will learn how to get a product which corresponds to specific operating conditions and one that is capable of serving for a long time.
A recent test of Element’s THOR liners demonstrated a mileage of 77 days in one of the plants in the Kursk Magnetic Anomaly (KMA). This is 22% longer than the operating time of armour made in China, and two times longer in relation to the lifetime of local counterparts. Previously, the plant in the KMA procured armour from local manufacturers for the Uralmash KSD 1750 crusher. They couldn’t withstand even 1.5 months. On average, the armour wore out in 42 days. In order to reduce the equipment’s downtime, the plant shifted to liners made in China and, thereby increasing the run time to 63 days.
Element has successfully tested a set of THOR liners for an Uralmash KSD 2200 cone crusher in one of the Siberian mining plants. Their operations have become more cost-effective in relation to some of the cheaper counterparts from local manufacturers. The armour set has served twice longer than the previously used ones. Element counted the economic benefit.
Attitudes and beliefs take decades to form. Try to change the established opinion about how one should do business, or indeed, what solutions one should use for efficient mining. There are a lot of technologies in this industry that are gradually dying out. Nevertheless, companies continue to use them because they are used to them. For several years, Element has been proving to its customers that it’s better to use modern, wear-resistant materials rather than steel to protect machinery and equipment from wear. For this purpose, Element attended the exhibition MiningWorld Russia 2020.
