Complete solutions for the mining value chain

Third Quarter 2021 Shaft power components

Bearings International (BI) has products for the entire mining value chain, from the beginning of mining operations to their end of life. This encompasses all types of mining operations, from opencast to underground, as well as wash plants and smelters.

“BI offers complete solutions,” says segment development leader, Shaun Combrinck. Products include energy efficient variable speed drives and ABB electric motors. In terms of mechanical solutions, BI has a vast range of Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) type products such as solid block bearing units, currently a major success story in the industry.

Key brands include FAG, Koyo, Cooper Split Bearings, Linkbelt, Dodge, ABB, iMak and Bauer gearboxes, chains and sprockets, lubrication, belts and pulleys. With mining being a particularly arduous operating environment, these top brands are designed to boost the efficiency of any mining operation and its equipment fleet, a key focus of the 4IR product range available from BI. “There is much more focus on energy efficiency and modernisation in the mining industry at the moment, due to the significant impact that these trends can have on the bottom line,” adds Combrinck.

Mining also represents one of BI’s biggest market segments; the intention is to not only grow its footprint and product range in South Africa, but throughout Africa as well. In addition, BI offers a 24/7 year round customer support service for all of its mining clients.
