OUTOTEC OYJ PRESS RELEASE MARCH 22, 2013 at 2:00 PM
Outotec cooperates with Maschinenfabrik Köppern to expand its comminution
Outotec has agreed with Maschinenfabrik Köppern GmbH & Co. KG on cooperation in
the manufacture and supply of Outotec branded comminution products as part of
Outotec's process solutions. Köppern is a global leader in high-pressure
grinding roll (HPGR) technology as well as a world leader for briquetting and
compaction solutions. Köppern's HPGR will complement Outotec's comminution
technologies and services and strengthen Outotec's market position. Outotec's
comminution product range includes autogenous (AG) mills, semi-autogenous (SAG)
mills, high intensity grinding (HIGmills), rod mills, ball mills and pebble
HPGR technology is used in grinding iron, gold, copper and other hard rock ores.
HPGR can also replace secondary crushing or primary grinding, which results in
such as lower energy consumption and high throughput in the
mineral processing. Grinding is the most energy intensive phase in minerals and
metals processing - even a small energy saving in the comminution phase will
significantly increase the concentrator's profitability and sustainability.
"Partnership with Köppern will broaden our scope of delivery. We can offer our
customers a wide range of sustainable comminution solutions and tailor the most
energy efficient solution for each customer", says Jari Rosendal, President of
Outotec's Non-ferrous Solutions business area.
"As an independent and family-owned manufacturer and solution-supplier, we are
proud to partner with Outotec on an exclusive basis to enhance our world-wide
market potential for HPGR applications" says Christopher Schafer, Managing
Director of Köppern.
