thyssenkrupp Mining Technologies and Magotteaux extend their strategic partnership for Metal Matrix Composite technology
Mining customers will benefit from the closer cooperation between thyssenkrupp Mining Technologies and Magotteaux through optimized and cost-effective wear parts for mining and aggregates equipment. Even faster development and introduction of high-quality wear parts with higher profitability for mining customers is now possible. The long-standing partnership, which started as a classic customer-supplier relationship, will now be consolidated and extended to the development of innovative wear parts with Metal Matrix Composite (MMC) technology. The cooperation agreement strengthens future joint research and development efforts, through shorter development times and a customer- and market-focused research and development effort.
Magotteaux has extensive expertise in MMC technology for wear resistant castings offering longer life and better cost/benefit ratio. This technological advance is based on numerous patents held by the company in this field.
“By expanding our partnership with Magotteaux, we are able to offer new and innovative wear part solutions that help our customers improve operational performance and reduce wear part costs through longer lifespans. long, thus benefiting from an economic advantage. We expect our customers to benefit from this partnership in very tangible ways over the next 12 months,” said Georg Pahlenkemper, Chief Service Officer of thyssenkrupp Mining Technologies.
Sébastien Dossogne, CEO of Magotteaux, said: “Magotteaux is proud to partner with a leading company like thyssenkrupp Mining Technologies and to be recognized as one of the best wear solution manufacturers in the world. Our know-how, our technologies and the dedication of our people have enabled us to achieve this objective. Our teams are focused on excellence and are excited to manufacture the latest Thyssenkrupp wear parts.
The combination of thyssenkrupp’s process expertise and Magotteaux’s manufacturing expertise will provide customers worldwide with cost-effective equipment wear parts by combining their respective know-how and intellectual property to offer solutions valuable and unprecedented. She has already achieved visible results for various clients; for example, in the development of concaves for gyratory crushers, which were developed and introduced in 2021, currently showing evidence that these efforts lead to success as the wear behavior is much better compared to wear parts standard, even in the toughest conditions.
thyssenkrupp Mining Technologies has also gained additional expertise in MMC technology through an exclusive license agreement with Innerco Sp. zoo. Innerco is a leading MMC technology company focusing on the development and implementation of this technology with various components for different wear parts.
Through these partnerships, thyssenkrupp Mining Technologies, as one of the few full-line suppliers of mining and aggregates equipment in the world, ensures faster development cycles for wear parts throughout the process chain. For complex operations and high customer requirements, thyssenkrupp Mining Technologies will therefore be able to offer technically and economically optimized wear parts and efficient solutions even faster in the future.
