Extract More Value

A-Ward understands global mining and how to deliver superior equipment to drive efficient operations. From minerals to high value toxic materials, A-Ward has designed sophisticated handling solutions to help extract maximum value. Talk to us about our turnkey solutions for loading and unloading requirements.

A-Wards machine solutions can:

  • Maximize transportable weight and container can be weighed during loading
  • Increase operator control for safety in loading and unloading
  • Create customized solutions for plant integration (e.g. PLC system interface)
  • Prevent contamination of moisture and dust due to purpose built container liners and fast/direct loading
  • Improve strength to cope with tough environments

Coal

Coal producers are able to maximize all container weights when loading coal into tilted-up shipping containers.

By using an A-Ward container loader, coal exporters are also able to load containers extremely quickly and minimize labor costs involved with the process by using a single operator.

The digital scale also enables the operators to know exactly how much weight is in each container at any time during the loading process to ensure that the maximum loads are achieved every time.

Coal buyers are able to unload shipping containers extremely quickly with a single operator, minimizing labor costs, when using an A-Ward container tilter.

Nickel

Nickel product producers are able to weigh shipping containers during the loading process to ensure maximum allowable shipping weights are achieved with every load when using an A-Ward container loader.

When loading nickel products into tilted-up shipping containers, the entire volume of the shipping container is able to be utilized and the digital scale enables operators to know exactly how much weight is in every container during the loading process.

A-Ward container unloaders enable nickel product buyers immediate and controlled unloading of their shipping containers and remove the reliance on expensive and scarce tilting trailers.

Hydraulic door opening arms also ensure maximum operator safety.

Steel Balls

Mining companies are able to eliminate all safety risks when unloading steel balls into ball mills using A-Ward container unloaders.

By integrating A-Ward’s container unloaders with ball mill systems, the entire ball unloading and milling process becomes a totally enclosed, hands free and safe operation.

The container tilter controls are also able to be integrated into the company’s PLC system to enable full automation.

Lime

Lime producers maximize all container weights when loading lime into tilted-up shipping containers.

By using an A-Ward container loader, lime exporters are also able to load containers extremely quickly and minimize labor costs involved with the process using a single operator.

The digital scale also enables the operators to know exactly how much weight is in each container at any time during the loading process to ensure that the maximum loads are achieved every time.

Lime buyers are able to unload shipping containers extremely quickly with a single operator, minimizing labor costs, when using an A-Ward container tilter.
