Weir Minerals Launches Enduron

Weir Minerals’ new Enduron brand represents expanded comminution portfolio focused on the mining and sand and aggregate markets

MELBOURNE, Australia (June 27, 2013)– Weir Minerals, a leading supplier to the global mining industry, is launching its new Enduron® line of comminution equipment, including crushers, screens and feeders for the mining, sand and aggregate industries.

The Enduron range significantly expands Weir Minerals’ comminution solutions portfolio, adding to its extensive range of mill circuit products. The use of KHD® HPGR equipment in conjunction with the new range of Enduron vibrating screens, feeders and crushers provides cost effective comminution packages which will be supported by Weir Minerals' global organisation comprising more than 7,000 employees and over 100 service centres.

With an emphasis on enhancing mining productivity and safety, the new equipment is designed to maximize customers’ operational efficiency. “Screens and crushers are typically the workhorses of an ore processing operation,” said Dr. Ekkhart Matthies, Weir Minerals Global VP of Comminution. “Weir Minerals’ design and application expertise, combined with our product support resources will ensure the new products provide optimum performance as they cope with the demands of today’s mining industry, and we are already developing the next generation of crusher technology for future applications."

The Enduron line of products will be sold and serviced through Weir Minerals’ existing global teams and create a platform for further expansion into the crushing and screening market. “The introduction of the new Enduron brand provides the quality, scale and breadth of product to help mine operators maximise efficiency and productivity, while maintaining field safety,” said Matthies.

Headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, and with facilities on six continents, Weir Minerals delivers end-to-end solutions for all mining, transportation, milling, processing, and waste water management activities.
