ScanMin Africa specialises in radio-isotope mass spectral analysis of materials like coal, cement, minerals and ores. This technology can be used to generate real-time information for process control and also for quality controls on live systems. By contrast, the extensive range of Schmersal products and solutions for the bulk goods conveying industry focuses on the protection of employees and processes. For example, its emergency stop cable switches guarantee the safety of operating personnel, while belt alignment switches reduce system failure times and downtimes. “All our system components along the conveyor belt are compatible and can be integrated into automation systems via fieldbus systems,” explains Udo Sekin. For the worldwide coal, cement and mining industry, Schmersal and ScanMin Africa therefore offer integrated one-stop-shop solutions for personal protection, process efficiency and quality control. The product range is rounded off by consulting services which can be utilised around the world thanks to the global network of branches for both companies.
