Special material developments for mining
Mining chains are subjected to various stresses and loads. In addition to high static base loads, significant signs of wear also occur. Furthermore, sudden power spikes can occur - in extreme cases accompanied by significant corrosive influences.
Leading expertise in chain optimisation
Thanks to many years of experience designing increasingly efficient alloy concepts, Georgsmarienhütte GmbH is an expert partner for the chain industry. Excellent strength and toughness values, and a high level of resistance against various types of corrosion are essential for durable mining chains. These properties must be optimised, however, with economic aspects in mind. For that we have Georgsmarienhütte GmbH’s tried-and-tested manufacturing processes. Industrial field trials with innovative alloy variants are already underway. For the chain steel of tomorrow.
