Mining companies confronts various operational challenges like low ore grades and complex deposits, poor recovery of mineral resources and high operating costs. Therefore, sturdy wear components that last longer are essential and critical to successful mining operations. AIA Engineering along with VEGA Industries continues to develop and offers comprehensive range of alloys and solutions for the industry. The group industries products and services ensure enhanced grinding output, reduced power consumption, better plant availability and metal recovery leading to improved revenues and bottom line for the mining companies.
The mining industry comes with some fair amount of challenges:
AIA Engineering has developed new alloys and manufacturing techniques that provide improved wear components which results in:
Grinding ball Metallurgy
EEMS & Liner Design
