Vibramech has purposefully designed high quality, reliable and robust vibrating equipment for the often harsh African operating conditions above ground

According to PwC’s Mine 2018 report, “Steady global annual GDP growth over the next five years, along with significant infrastructure growth in emerging economies, is expected to underpin continued demand for mining products.”

On the back of this forecast, screening specialist Vibramech is well positioned to see future growth within the company moving into 2019 and beyond.

Vibramech is southern Africa’s largest manufacturer of vibrating minerals processing equipment with an installed base of over 10 000 pieces of equipment in the mining and minerals processing industries throughout Africa, Eurasia, Australasia, North and South America.

The company’s equipment is operating in processing plants, ocean vessels and mining operations world-wide and as a result boasts extensive experience in gold, diamond, coal, iron ore, manganese, platinum, chrome, nickel, uranium, copper, mineral sands and aggregate operations.

For over 40 years, Vibramech has developed and enhanced its comprehensive range of vibrating screens, including as the multislope (or Banana), horizontal, inclined, double deck and dewatering. It also has a range of proven feeders, such as grizzly feeders, pan feeders, tubular feeders and grease tables. “Our brand is today synonymous with quality, reliable and robust vibrating equipment,” says Vibramech MD David Massey.

The company understands the harsh operating conditions which vibrating screens, grizzlies and feeders are subjected to in the mining industry, world-wide. As such, Vibramech is cognisant that its designs need to cater for both abrasive and corrosive environments.

“We also constantly strive to provide clients with augmentations to their existing vibrating equipment: retrofitting custom-made design enhancements to improve on mechanical, wear and process related characteristics of any componentry,” Massey adds.

“With Vibramech, your operation is ensured a robust equipment design that will provide many years of reliable service—resulting in lower operating cost and reduced downtime.”

As an original equipment manufacturer (OEM), all equipment is manufactured in-house by Vibramech at its 20 000m2 premises in Chamdor, 35 km west of Johannesburg, South Africa. Almost every piece of equipment is tailor-made to suit a client’s specific requirements, from both a plant layout viewpoint and process considerations.

A present staff complement of 200 control all activities from sales through to engineering and manufacturing. All equipment is designed and manufactured by Vibramech without the use of manufacturing subcontractors. This ensures complete control over quality and scheduling.

Furthermore, its flexible and practical approach to screen design enables the client to optimise the vibrating equipment geometry to suit its specific requirements, resulting in tailor-made equipment.
