At the beginning of the year Rulmeca was asked to supply idler garlands and idlers for a new drive station at MIBRAG Lignite mine "Vereinigtes Schleenhain" Germany. Rulmeca offered this against well-known competitors.On March 10, 2023 the order was placed by Regiser Anlagenmontagen GmbH. After largely converting and renewing existing systems in recent years, this time Mibrag decided to build a new drive station. We equipped these and the towing carrier with garlands and carrying rollers.



Three-stage garlands were installed in the carry belt side, machined and balanced, with diameters of 219 mm inthe distance section and 159 in the trough area. PSV rollers bearing size 6308 of type B3 194 x1100 with PUR rings are installed in the lower belt. In the video attached to this section you can see the entire system being transported to its destination.


While the design for each project is highly specific, material handling components are the elements that make a difference in mining conveyor belts. Strong, safe and reliable parts are required to support heavy loads and resist to wear, due to the various conditions of materials and environment. The quality and durability of the design and materials of Rulmeca products guarantee full efficiency and functionality in mining critical environments. They can be used for any conveyor belt that requires the transportation of heavy and abrasive materials (coal, lignite, gold, copper and so on) and in any range of temperatures, both for underground and open-air extraction.
