Remote Control Beam Relines Grinding Mills Safely

Outotec unveiled the 7-Axis Beam Mill Reline Machines (MRMs), lifting machinery designed to replace wearable grinding mill lining systems. The MRMs fully comply with the European Machinery Directive for safety, the company reported.

Main features include radio remote control, feedback screen, electrohydraulic proportional control system, powered travel and rotation of the liner cart, rail or tire drive options, safety rated control components, and an alignment camera system for grapple (optional).

The MRMs can be maneuvered using a conventional rail arrangement or a tire drive system, which provides increased fl exibility for transport around the mill deck. A traveling liner cart with powered slew for rotating liners and a crane with 7 of freedom for manipulation of the liners inside the mill ensures safe, effi cient and reliable operation, the company reported.
