A Platform for Global Innovation and Commitment to South Africa's Mining Sector

The hosting of the 2nd Mineral Processing Conclave by Tega Industries in South Africa during November 2023 marked a significant milestone in the company's 47-year journey. The event served as a gathering of experts from four continents, presenting technical papers on various topics, including optimization and maintenance, innovations in mill liners, and the impact of design and operating variables on mill performance.

This prestigious event featured a distinguished lineup of global mining luminaries, including insights from esteemed speakers like Prof. Aubrey Mainza, Professor at the University of Cape Town with 18 years of expertise in comminution and classification research. As the Deputy Director at the Centre for Minerals Research, Prof. Mainza utilizes advanced methods such as DEM and CFD, actively contributing to international projects and circuit optimization. Prof. Aubrey also serves as the chairperson for the International Comminution Researchers Association African Chapter and is involved in various advisory roles.

Mark Sherman of Fluor Canada, Mining & Metals Technical Director and Senior Fellow Communition SME, discussed the next generation of liner designs aimed at enhancing efficiency, cost savings, wear-life, and reducing carbon footprints in minerals processing within the mining industry. This collective expertise reinforced a shared dedication to advancing mining technologies.

Tega Industries' commitment to research and development was emphasized as this marked the company's second Mineral Processing Conclave in the country. This underscored Tega's dedication to enhancing the beneficiation process through continuous research and development, adapting to customer needs, and evolving solutions accordingly.

Mr. Vishal Gautam, Tega Industries South Africa Business Head, highlighted the company's collaborative philosophy. Over two decades, Tega has closely worked with clients, developing products that significantly improve processes and address challenges in mineral processing plants. This collaborative approach has earned Tega the trust of clients worldwide, establishing it as synonymous with minerals beneficiation.

Tega's contributions extend across its product range, including the renowned DynaMax Mill Liners, Wear Products, Screens, Trommels, Conveyor Components, and Hydrocyclones. During the conclave, Tega Industries Group Director of Global Sales & PMG, Mr. Yaver Imam, and Global Sales Head, Mr. Vinay Grover, showcased the company's global reach and recent expansion in the OEM space, reinforcing a shared dedication to advancing mining technologies.

Two significant announcements were made during the conclave by Tega Industries. The first involved the company's entry into the equipment manufacturing market, offering a comprehensive range of mining equipment after acquiring minerals processing equipment manufacturer McNally Sayaji Equipment. This move provides African customers with additional alternatives in traditional equipment.

The second announcement unveiled the introduction of hand lining services, available to all customers using Tega's advanced equipment for cold and hot bonding of liners to metal parts. Vishal Gautam explained the complexity of these processes, emphasizing the quality perspective and the practicality of outsourcing such work.

Mr. Vishal Gautam concluded the conclave by reaffirming Tega Industries' commitment to the African continent. He expressed optimism about South Africa, citing substantial investments in the local plant. Tega believes that being close to customers reduces spares requirements, saving both space and money through on-time delivery.

In summary, the 2nd Mineral Processing Conclave by Tega Industries not only showcased global expertise and innovations but also demonstrated the company's unwavering commitment to advancing mining technologies and supporting Africa's mining sector through collaborative efforts, local manufacturing, and strategic expansions.
