Russia’s Uralmashplant JSC said that it is reasserting itself in the market of crushing equipment. The company’s order book for 2019 contains orders for 29 crushers of various modifications and sizes; this is the absolute record for the last five years and 14.5 times higher than in 2014. The demand for crushing equipment with the UZTM trademark has been growing since 2015; over the past five years the major number – 11 units – was produced in 2018. In 2019, as of February 1, the order book of Uralmashzavod contains orders for 24 crushers, and by the end of the month it will achieve 29 crushers. This is a record order book in the segment of UZTM crushing equipment for the last five years.

According to the sales director of crushing and grinding equipment at Uralmashplant parent company UZTM-KARTEX, Mikhail Gunitsev, Uralmashplant has been participating in all tenders for tge supply of crushing and grinding equipment. Now, the book of orders for 2020 is growing as well: as of today, it has already achieved almost 70% of that for this year.

“Uralmashplant restores its position in the market of crushing equipment: in 2018, we won several major tenders, in which the world’s largest manufacturers of this type of equipment took part. This results from the fact that today UZTM is ready to offer reliable high-performance machines to the customers at an attractive price,” says Gunicev.

In 2018, specialists from Uralmashplant completed the technical refurb and upgrade of the crusher KKD-1500/180 at iron ore major Stoilensky GOK (owned by NLMK), and its test results showed an unprecedented performance for the mining industry at the first stage – more than 5,500 t/h of ore per hour with a crushing size of no more than 250 mm. The potential productivity of the modernised crusher is no less than 6,000 t/h. In 2019, the plant will manufacture a set of crushing equipment with higher performance parameters for Karelsky Okatysh (PAO Severstal), also an iron ore operation.

The crushing equipment is one of the key segments for Uralmashplant. The plant manufactured the first jaw crusher in 1936, and two years later the primary gyratory crusher, which was a copy of the American McCully-type gyratory crusher, was produced. The maximum output of the latter achieved 2,000 t of ore per hour.

At present, the main customers of crushing equipment manufactured by UZTM are the leading enterprises in the mining industry, including Karelsky Okatysh (PJSC Severstal), Stoylensky GOK (NLMK group), enterprises of UMMC and holding Evraz, RUPP Granit (Belarus), UK Metalloinvest and others.
