ALLU’s M-Series Proves Itself in Brazilian Surface Mining Operations
Founded in 1998, Máquina Solo is a Brazilian company which specializes in supplying foundation, geotechnical, mining and environmental equipment throughout the country. Considered to be one of the leading specialist equipment distributors in Brazil, the company, which began operations supplying hydraulic hammers, now acts as the representative for 14 leading manufacturers, supplying over 24 different product lines.
Driving the business forward into its 19th year is the commitment of all at Maquina Solo involved in the business to deliver solutions that meet the needs of its customers. This is achieved by being involved in all aspects of the supply process, and covers such as aspects as application analysis, equipment selection, sales through to service, and aftermarket support.
One such company that has forged excellent relations with Máquina Solo is Finnish manufacturer ALLU, whose Transformer and Processor attachments have been particularly well received in Brazil. The reasons for this are manifold, but the power, flexibility and transportability of the equipment has contributed to ALLU equipment being highly prized in Brazil, with the service and support provided by Máquina Solo complimenting the equipment.
An area that has particularly seen the benefits of the ALLU Transformer range has been in surface mining operations. As the Transformer is essentially designed to fit an excavator or loading shovel, this has made the equipment ideal for large scale surface mining operations, where transportability and productivity are essential requirements of material handling equipment.
With many units now working throughout Brazil, one such application has seen the ALLU Transformer M-Series being used at a nickel mine, screening chalcedony directly in the mine, in order to upgrade the nickel concentration on the processed material. This particular model was chosen due to its high mobility and functionality in screening the material in-situ, instead of loading onto trucks, then transporting the material to stationary screening plant, and then re-transporting the material back to where it originally came from. This has meant the company has been able to replace its stationary screening equipment, freeing up resources as well as enjoying greater flexibility in its operations.
