Multotec Profile

Multotec, recognised industry leaders in metallurgy and process engineering help mining houses across the world process minerals more efficiently, effectively and reliably. Customers on six continents use our equipment and expertise to optimise recoveries and reduce total cost of ownership for their mineral processing plants.

Multotec-manufactured mineral processing equipment reflects 45 years of global experience, with full-service registered companies and manufacturing facilities in Africa, Asia, Australia and North and South America.

Located near key mining areas, our growing branch network brings us closer to our customers, a key strategy that allows us to understand the specific challenges of each country and site. Each Multotec branch is uniquely developed with customised services as required by local plant and processing applications. Equipped with relevant fabrication services and tailored technology portfolios, local Multotec technical and product specialists possess the experience to develop tailored solutions to meet the specific requirements of each of our customers, no matter where they are or what their processing challenge entails.

We leverage this international footprint and global expertise in our ongoing product development programme, feeding lessons learned from around the world into local innovations to ensure customised solutions that drive increased performance, reliability and product speed to market for our customers’ operations.

Continuous global investments in research and development have seen new, fast-moving technologies incorporated into our products and manufacturing processes to add direct value to customer operations. Recent technologies such as smart panels and 360° virtual reality are pioneering innovations bringing greater efficiencies to mineral processing plants and helping to create a more sustainable mining sector.

Multotec has also continuously invested in state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment across its facilities. Recent investments include new, highly specialised moulding equipment used in the manufacture of rubber products, as well as the establishment of Africa’s largest alumina oxide tile manufacturing facility, where a variety of wear resistant components are produced.

Our South African manufacturing centres of competence in Johannesburg and Pretoria feature cutting-edge design and engineering tools and equipment, including Computational Fluid Dynamics, Computer Aided Drawing and Trajectory Modelling. Investments in heat lamination 3D printing facilities are enabling Multotec to refine our customers’ solutions and enhance product development by producing quick and cost-effective prototypes that we use to validate and optimise the design and functionality of components before manufacture.

At Multotec’s state-of-the-art Research and Test Work Facilities, designs relating to magnetic separation, hydrocyclones, filtration, wear lining, screening and gravity concentration processes are tested, allowing engineers optimise plant solutions to exact application and output requirements. Our laboratory facilities are used to test and measure sample filtration, sample drying, particle size distribution analysis, float and sink analysis and sample splitting applications. These facilities are offered for use by customers, universities and other industrial companies.

Multotec plays an active role in supporting local job creation and skills development initiatives in and around the areas we operate in. Through our branches in South Africa, Botswana, Mozambique, Zambia and Ghana, Multotec focuses on providing employment opportunities for local communities. This is backed by a key focus on employee training and skills transfer. Multotec’s learnership programmes have also provided opportunities for more than 150 learners to date.
