Page 54 of 75 ROCK products • May 2018 • 53 EQUIPMENT & TECHNOLOGY MATERIAL HANDLING & CONVEYING Rema Tip Top is one of the world's major suppliers of conveyor belts with a total of five plants in South Africa, France, Poland and China. "Until now, all our brands have operated separately by market. By moving closer together and better taking advantage of the syn- ergies in our company, we will be able to considerably increase our market share," said Udo Zimmer, CEO of Rema Tip Top AG. "We are mainly looking at the growth regions of Southeast Asia, Australia and Latin America," said Stefan Flohr, head of belting business Unit at Rema Tip Top. The company plans on significantly expanding its presence there. "Our greatest advantage is our global service network, which allows us to offer our customers comprehensive services on the basis of the appropriate conveyor belt, ranging from installation through to maintenance and monitor- ing," said Flohr. "When it comes to the Rema Tip Top complete range of wear protection, conveyance technology, and components for the preparation of raw minerals, customers can place the efficiency of their entire system in our hands and know that we will come through for them." In keeping with the Rema Tip Top phi- losophy, every system is subjected to a holistic approach in order to optimize the added value for the operator and minimize overall costs. By appoint- ing Flohr, Rema Tip Top is placing an experienced conveyor belt expert at the head of the new unit. Over the past few months, Rema Tip Top has already taken steps to enhance its competitiveness on the conveyor belt market. The company opened a central conveyor belt logistics center for all of Europe at the beginning of 2017 in the Dutch city of Arnhem. It serves as a pivotal point and hub within the com- pany for flexibly and quickly delivering conveyor belts from factories through- out Europe. When it comes to belt production, Rema Tip Top focuses on producing technical and high-strength belts, with high ten- sile strength, low abrasion and high heat resistance. The company produces high-quality conveyor belts especially for the mine, steel, cement, quarry, gravel, sand, food, agrarian, packaging and logistics industries. Rema Tip Top also produces sidewall conveyor belts for moving bulk goods up steep inclines. Rema Tip Top, Mobile Eddy Current Separator Streamlines Recycled Waste Production Technological advances in eddy current separation over the last 10 years have significantly improved efficiency, recovery rates and throughput. In many cases, it is not uncommon for an eddy current separator to pay for itself within the first six months of operation. In an attempt to improve the practicality of the Eddy Cur- rent Separator, particularly for recycling sites that stockpile a large amount of their feed materials, Master Magnets ECS systems are now available as a mobile tracked machine. Master Magnets General Manager Adrian Coleman said, "We wanted to bring a mobile eddy current separator to market that was not only superior in manufacturing quality to any- thing else on the market, but could also still be cost-effective for the end user. Working closely with the highly reputa- ble Steelweld Fabrications Ltd. has enabled us to produce a machine that is everything we had hoped for in terms of design, ease of use and durability." The MasterTrax incorporates a 1500-mm wide Master Mag- nets ECS with a Rare Earth Drum Magnet for the removal of fine ferrous metals. Other features include: • Vibratory feeder. •  Three integrated inclined discharge conveyors with hydraulic folding. • 65-Kw generator (can also be powered via mains supply). •  On-board working lights and an air compressor for cleaning. Rob Symons, owner of CRJ Services and a user of the new MasterTrax, said, "We need machines that we are confident our clients can rely on. Having purchased Master Magnets eddy current separators in the past, we knew that we can trust in the quality of their manufacture and service."
