With the current demand for minerals on the rise and the expected growth in the real estate sector, the global mining industry is expected to see demand increase in the vibrating screens market by 2028. At General Kinematics, we specialize in innovative mining equipment that is designed to meet this demand, as well as further advance technological developments.
The STM-SERIES™ of vibrating screens began as a customized design decades ago. It has since evolved into a standardized line of products that are “shaking up” the mining industry.
The STM-SCREEN™ boasts several advantages over similar equipment. STM-Screens are:
– Resonance time. This design is load responsive and capable of longer material retention times to work the material more. This means you can get more screening accomplished in the same footprint as your old brute force screens.
– Maintenance-friendly. Using dual inboard vibratory motors, the need for parts such as belts, motors, and bearings is drastically reduced and possibly eliminated. The modular design allows for typical maintenance tasks to be done from the side of the machine in minutes—not hours. In addition, portions of the screen that need replacement can be accessed without disassembling the rest of the unit. Lastly, the center spline of the STM-SCREEN™ increases structural integrity and allows for larger screening panels. GK customers report higher reliability and increased uptime when using STM-SCREEN™ units when compared with other screens.
– Cost-efficient. With decreased costs in maintenance, parts, energy, and operations, the STM-SCREEN™ will increase efficiency and improve total cost of ownership. General Kinematics’ innovative mining solutions will help customers “improve total life-cycle costs – an issue which remains one of our core focuses,” says Paul Bracher, managing director of IMS Engineering, a GK representative.
– Ready to meet any challenge. A major mine in South Central China was experiencing overheating and resonance issues with previous equipment by another manufacturer. The STM-SCREEN™’s modular design and long-life expectancy surpassed the performance of the previous equipment and impressed its operators. In another case study, a gold mine in Canada needed a machine capable of handling their abrasive materials at high capacity. The durability and design of the STM-SCREEN™ Two-Mass system met this customer’s processing goals with ease.
Innovative technology like the STM-SERIES™ have positively improved customer operations for a number of mining sites around the world. Ideal for gold, limestone, and other commodities, the General Kinematics STM-SERIES™ is here to support your growing operation and to improve overall costs associated with life-cycle challenges.
