Mining Technology: Solutions for the future of mining

Mining Technologies from Pit to Port by thyssenkrupp


Global demand for raw materials is rising all the time. Set against this is the finite nature of resources and the need to protect the environment. As one of the few full-line suppliers worldwide, we are reliable partners to demanding customers, offering them tailored, cost-efficient and responsible solutions for mining, processing and handling raw materials – from pit to port.

Our services include designing and building individual machines and complete installations as well as modernizing and upgrading existing systems. From low-cost standard machines to custom systems for extreme conditions - our solutions satisfy all requirements and create lasting value for our customers. To optimize our mining solutions, we use state of the art technology and our digitalized expertise.

Mineral Processing: Expert processing is the link between the mined raw material and an optimum product for further use

Different jobs call for different solutions, which we custom design using our unique expertise and extensive product portfolio. In every project the technology used depends on the job at hand – from planning to machine design to commissioning. Thanks to the extensive range of machinery offered by thyssenkrupp Mining Technologies, proven solutions are available for every need, allowing raw material processing to proceed with maximum efficiency and at the lowest possible cost.

A wide range of crushing plants is available to reduce overburden, rock, coal and other minerals. Our primary crushers set the standard worldwide and also make a great contribution to reducing CO2 emissions. In combination with other carefully matched components, they create highly efficient, complete crushing systems – as stationary, semi-mobile or mobile solutions depending on customer needs. With our large selection of standard machines and modules, we offer fast, low-cost solutions for the aggregates and coal industries from a single source. When it comes to mineral grinding, our mills are valued the world over for their robust construction and outstanding durability, even dealing with extremely abrasive materials. We also offer a wide range of technologies and machinery for the thermal processing of various materials. 

Materials handling: For processed raw material to reach its destination in top condition and without losses, bulk handling systems have to be carefully designed and engineered

To meet these complex requirements, we offer customers everything they need for the transportation and transshipment of raw materials. thyssenkrupp Mining Technologies provides a comprehensive range of systems for port terminals, stockyards, bulk material distribution centers and process plants. As one of the few full-line suppliers of such systems, we deliver cost-efficient,environmentally friendly solutions from individual machines to complete turnkey installations for the mining, cement, energy and sugar industries as well as for coal-fired power plants, metallurgical facilities and steel mills. We have particular experience of projects involving throughput rates of more than 10,000 tons per hour.

For raw materials handling at ports, we offer highly efficient systems for loading and unloading seagoing and inland waterway vessels. Custom-designed rail car loading and unloading stations provide optimum links to the rail system. In stockyards, our combined bucket wheel stacker/reclaimers can handle huge volumes of bulk materials. In longitudinal or circular stockyards, scraper-type units carry out blending of coal, limestone and fertilizers. For harder materials, particularly ores, bridge-type bucket wheel systems or drum reclaimers are used. Special pipe conveyors are the solution for eco-friendly handling of dusty materials in metallurgical plants, power stations and cement works.

Materials Handling

Stockyard systems

Stockyards serve as material buffers, reserve or blending storage between mining, processing and transshipping.

Car dumpers

To unload bulk cargo from rail cars, thyssenkrupp offers complete rail car unloading stations from single to quadruple car dumpers.

Port handling systems

Each port has its own specific requirements. thyssenkrupp has an extensive program for all sectors of port handling - from single machine right through to complete turnkey terminals.

Mineral Processing


thyssenkrupp offers a variety of different screens.

Pyroprocessing systems

We offer innovative concepts for the thermal processing of a broad range of materials.

Standard machines

thyssenkrupp offers an extensive range of advanced standard machines and -modules for raw material processing.

Feeders & discharge systems

Different components are available for the feed and the withdrawal of the material.

Crushing plants

thyssenkrupp delivers crushing plants for throughput rates of more than 10,000 t/h in stationary, semi-mobile or mobile design.


thyssenkrupp’s range of more than 20 different crushers provides a suitable type for every conceivable application and performance class.

Factory automation

Our range covers systems for monitoring, control, regulation and optimization of the process, as well as for assuring constant product quality.

Grinding plants

Our wide range of different mill types offers the right system for every job.

Mining systems

In-pit crushing systems

In hard rock mining in-pit crushing and conveying systems are an economical alternative to discontinuous material transport by dump trucks.

Belt conveyors

thyssenkrupp belt conveyor systems are custom-designed to meet the specific demands of the client’s needs.


The spreader is the last link in the chain of continuous transport of excavated material in open pit mining and is used for dumping of overburden at the landfill.

Mine planning

thyssenkrupp provides an extensive range of services to assist clients to reduce their costs in developing and operating surface mines.


Beltwagons overcome the variation in distance and height between the mining equipment and the bench conveyor.

Tripper cars

Each spreader requires a tripper car to receive the material from the conveyor line.

Bucket wheel excavators

thyssenkrupp delivers bucket wheel excavators in all sizes and types.
