IFE Aufbereitungstechnik Bulk Material Handling Machines for Mines

For more than 60 years, IFE has been dealing with the construction of machines for bulk material handling. We provide electromagnetic and electromechanical vibro-conveyors, screening machines and magnetic separators for use in mines, foundries, iron and steel works, as well as in the coal, recycling, waste, and sand and gravel industry.

Innovation in machine developments, as well as high-performance in engineering formed our reputation as a reliable and qualitative partner. Technical and manufacturing know-how, in addition to our extensive expertise in process and application engineering, contribute to solid growth and guarantee high-quality results for our customers.

Vibroconveyor Technology

Transporting bulk material to the right place in the right time is essential in a proper production process.

IFE provides reliable, long-lasting, low-maintenance and high-efficiency vibratory conveyors with electromagnetic drives, unbalanced motors or exciter drives. Dosing units, pan and tube feeders, guide spring conveyors, bin dischargers, spiral elevators and other special equipment meet our customer’s expectations in bulk material handling.

The IFE Heavy-Duty Vibrating Feeder can be used with various materials, such as chrome and iron ore. Its infeed capacity varies from 1,000t/h to 5,000t/h and can be adapted to reflect customer specifications. The robust construction makes the machine highly reliable and keeps maintenance costs low.

Screening Technology

IFE provides innovative solutions for the separation, screening and classification of various compounds. In addition to conventional linear and circular motion vibrating screens, IFE offers special screening machines, which significantly reduce clogging and are suitable for use with material that is difficult to screen.

Our product range includes flip-flop, banana, dewatering or underwater, waste, shake-outs, sizers or tailored screen solutions.

Our mining screens are suitable for wet and dry applications. Parameters, such as grain shape and size, humidity, output and screen cut size can be individually determined by the client.

The Heavy-Duty Grizzly Feeder can withstand harsh industrial use and is capable of processing up to 5,000t/h. Although the feeder handles high-capacities it requires low maintenance efforts.

Sizer and Circular Vibrating Screens are suitable for processing crushed limestone and dolomite. This combined solution provides high screening efficiency by quick fines removal. It is a flexible solution in compact design.

Magnetic Technology

Separating through properties is a clean and effective solution. Magnets can be adjusted to suite specific requirements in inline and overband cross-belt applications.

In addition, we provide specialised magnets for the separation of non-ferrous from ferrous metal in a compact, yet effective, way. IFE provides a comprehensive portfolio of magnetic applications including:

  • Lifting magnets (electromagnetic or permanent magnetic)
  • Overband separators
  • Eddy current separators (centric or eccentric)
  • Magnet drum separators
  • Wet drum separators
  • Roll magnetic separators
  • Plate magnets
  • Demagnetising coils
  • High-intensity separators

System Technology

To optimise the production process and find an economic solution for individual tasks we provide all of our machinery in one package.

Screening, separating, conveying solutions can be perfectly coordinated to improve efficiency. Our system solutions also provide constant high-quality performance.

Material Testing

For clients that want to process a material they have little experience with, we offer test-runs for to identify the ideal method to screen, classify, separate or convey the material.

Clients simply submit a probe and our experienced technicians will provide a tailored solution.

Development of IFE

IFE was founded more than 60 years ago as an institute for research and development. Starting with the set-up of an own production department, IFE has developed steadily over the years.

As a manufacturer of components for the active handling and conveying practice, the company has consistently focused on high-quality and related economic success.

Today, IFE is among the worldwide leading suppliers of electromagnetic and electromechanical vibratory conveyors, screening machines and magnetic separators.

Innovative developments, such as flip-flop screens, hard material separators and waste screens offer extensive package solutions for problems experienced in the field of material handling.

We are represented in nearly all European states, as well as Japan, Taiwan, Korea, China, South Africa and Australia.
