Building Materials industry
The construction sector, a key driver of economic activity and a significant part of any national economy, is heavily dependent on the building materials industry. Vast amounts of various materials are used every day in constructing buildings of every sort and transportation infrastructure of all kinds.
The production of these materials involves the mining, quarrying and processing of raw materials on an enormous scale – producing for example gravel, sand and bitumen for road construction or aggregate, cement and additives for concrete production. Minebea Intec’s wide range of weighing equipment offers the robustness, durability and IP protection needed for such applications, with heavy-duty truck scales, silo scales and conveyor belt weighing solutions, for example. Robust dosing, filling and metal detection equipment is also supplied.
A reliable partner for quality control and process equipment for the building materials industry
As a reliable partner of building materials manufacturers around the world, Minebea Intec invests heavily and constantly in testing and certification in accordance with various national and international standards and regulations, such as
- for Ex applications (explosion protection): ATEX/FM/CSA/IECEx/EAC
- for calibration: OIML/NTEP
- for ingress protection (IP): up to IP69k
Our products and solutions are developed to cover as much requirements of the building material industry as possible such as high resistance to corrosion as well as lightning protection. Our solutions offer IP protection, moisture, dust and temperature variations. Ease of use is also standard, and the use of batteries for flexible power supply, and versatile connectivity options are included as appropriate.
We are thus well prepared to meet the widely varying needs of building materials manufacturers, whatever their product or field of activity – and, of course, to provide the associated quality documentation that might be required for any application.
