More than just the sum of its parts

The BEUMER Group will be showcasing its capabilities as a system supplier for producers of building materials and cement at the bauma-fair in Munich. That is how it always provides optimum equipment and systems to its customers. BEUMER also offers comprehensive customer support. This includes provision of advice, flexible service agreements, custom modernization, efficient supplies of spare parts and comprehensive training for users – as well as residential service.

The BEUMER group has pooled its wide range of expertise in various sectors to create different business divisions, allowing it to support companies optimally with complete solutions. These globally responsible centers take care of marketing and project management. This includes, e. g., the cement division.

Pipe conveyors are among the equipment handled by the Conveying & Loading Systems division. These convey various types of bulk materials over very long distances, often over impassable terrain. They can overcome steep inclinations and tight curves, and can be individually matched to the particular task and topography (Figure 1).

The range also includes stackers and bridge scrapers for storage areas with so-called blending bed installations. These heap up the bulk material, ensuring the best possible mixing effect. This allows users to homogenize even large quantities of different bulk materials efficiently, so ensuring the consistency of the raw materials used.

Since cement manufacture is particularly energy-intensive, the BEUMER Group offers systems for the use of alternative fuels and raw materials (AFR). The suppliers deliver substitute fuels in ready-prepared form. So that these solid materials can be efficiently conveyed and stored by the cement and lime works, BEUMER offers three customized AFR systems. These comprise the entire material flow chain, from receiving and unloading the delivery vehicle, through storage, sampling, conveying and metering these alternative solid fuels. The system integrator also supplies loading heads for fast, dust-free loading of bulk material into silo vehicles. Fully automatic loading and palletizing equipment is also part of the product portfolio.

Materials such as cement, mortar or gypsum are filled into bags and packed for supply to customers. The system supplier’s Palletizing & Packaging division supplies complete packaging lines for this purpose from one source. This includes the BEUMER fillpac filling machine (Figure 2). This machine can be integrated and adjusted flexibly into existing packaging lines. BEUMER has different varieties in the range to meet different requirements. The system is fitted with an electronic weighing unit to ensure the accuracy of the bag weights. The special feature of this filling technology is that a variety of materials, with structures ranging from very fine to very coarse, can be filled with this type of machine. Different palletizing solutions, as well as a high-performance packaging system with sophisticated features, are also available.
