Halbach & Braun – Mining technology


Complete mining and quarrying systems

Our main strength is our mastery of the entire manufacturing process, from design to in-house production, including assembly, testing, commissioning and on-site after-sales support.

We support our customers around the world with certified quality, skills, maximum reliability and the in-depth knowledge of our engineers and supervisors.

All of our products are designed and manufactured in Germany and have been registered and patented to enable global expansion.

We are constantly looking for sustainable solutions in order to obtain the best possible conditions for staff and the environment. Predictive maintenance is important for more sustainability in production and also in mining. Thus, digitization can help to make the exploitation of deposits more efficient, to better conserve natural resources and to reduce the ecological footprint often associated with mining projects.

Halbach & Braun is well known for its advanced technologies and reliable systems always associated with the highest availability. For this simple reason, we have satisfied customers in over 20 countries.

Our engineers are constantly improving designs and systems to ensure longevity, increased efficiency and reduced wear.

Made in Germany, our modular systems and experienced products ensure safety, the highest quality and optimized performance.

Development of mining innovations

Halbach & Braun contributes to the research and development of mining technology with innovative designs for conveyor systems, including Shielded Face Conveyors (AFC) and Beam Loaders (BSL).

We also develop double life bins, smart bins, cross frames, side and overhead dumps, roller bends, coal plows, main and rear drives, belt drives, gearboxes, Shark sprockets, boot ends (Matilda) and impact or drum crusher systems for a wide range of materials.

These include coal, lignite, granite, limestone, oil shale, oil sands, salt, slag and ore.

In addition to this, our high quality product line also includes chain and belt reducers and complete drive systems. All of this enables us to provide customized and advanced solutions that meet the individual needs of our customers around the world.

Surface unloading and bunker systems

Granite and other solid rocks, limestone, oil shale, salt, slag, ore and more are mined in large quantities.

Here too we are able to provide complete open pit / bunker unloading systems for the transport and crushing of these various materials. Stationary, semi-mobile or mobile installations are available for different applications.

Fully and semi-automatic mining 4.0 systems

With our specialist knowledge and the strength of our partners, we will be able to provide complete mining 4.0 systems for all mines around the world.

Mining 4.0 is synonymous with all innovative activities in the raw materials sector with an emphasis on automation, autonomy, networking and artificial intelligence.

About Halbach & Braun

The mining industry has a long history in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia, particularly in the Ruhr region, the main industrial agglomeration along the Ruhr area.

Coal mining will still play an important role in the future. Extremely hazardous and arduous work requires constant innovation in equipment and technology to achieve the highest safety for miners, machinery and the environment around the world.

Our regular innovations and inventions have helped shape the mining industry for almost 100 years. Our first patent, the Schüttelrutsche or jigger conveyor, was followed by the first single chain conveyor system ever produced.
