Voith to showcase latest technology at Electra Mining Africa 2016

Global industrial engineering company, Voith has long provided top-line fluid couplings for use in belt conveyors, Armored Face Conveyor and crusher drives, in addition to its highly-efficient drive solutions.

In 2015 it added the field-proven systems of mining conveying manufacturer Hese Maschinenfabrik to its portfolio.

Voith TurboBelt Hese pulleys

These are technically and economically optimised belt conveyor pulleys that allow for a long product lifecycle.

Providing excellent running characteristics under extreme conditions such as heat, cold or humidity, and performing well in demanding and tough environments, Hese pulleys have a service life of up to ten years.

The company offers customised pulleys for different applications such as drive pulleys, tail pulleys, bend pulleys and more for high system availability.


The TVVS showcased Controlled-Fill Fluid Coupling model is used mainly in belt conveyor drives.

These types of couplings are used to ensure smooth start-up and to protect the drive against overload and dampen torsional vibration, thus preventing unplanned downtime and increasing the lifetime of drives.
