FLSmidth Confirms Local Manufacturing to Continue

Mineral processing specialist FLSmidth Australia has confirmed its intention to continue local design and manufacturing of its range of woven-wire screen media for the mineral processing, construction and aggregate industries.

The media, including galvanised and stainless steel square mesh, specialist agavibe and polyvibe and a range of architectural screens for the civil construction sector will be manufactured in the woven wire plant, part of the company’s new facility in the Hunter Valley.

“We saw no reason to cease local manufacture,” said FLSmidth country manager Mark Clifford.  “Our new facility has a dedicated manufacturing zone, our people are well-trained and the range of screen media we produce have a reputation for quality and performance.”

He added that local manufacturing also gives his company the advantage of fast response, shorter lead times and screen customisation and the quality control needed to meet the performance demands of a variety of generally abrasive slurries, aggregates and industrial and commercial environments.

“Additionally, any sizing, suitability or performance issues are quickly resolved,” he said.  “The customer is not waiting for a response from an overseas manufacturer and the possibility of an extended resolution period.”

These locally made screens have been an integral part of the Australian mineral processing industry for some forty years.

The first models were manufactured under the Hunter Screen Products banner until that company was purchased by Ludowici Australia.  In 2012 FLSmidth purchased Ludowici and successfully merged the design and manufacturing processes into its own business model.

“The design, materials and technology inherent in the screen media range we produce continues to evolve, just as processing methods and the diversity of potential applications also evolve, but the quality of the products and their performance characteristics remain high and keep our screens as market leaders,” said Mark Clifford.

Along with direct supply to customers across the country, the woven wire screen media manufactured in the Hunter Valley plant are used in the company’s range of processing screens manufactured in the company’s facilities at Pinkenba, Qld and Welshpol, WA.

The screen media plant is part of the company’s new 4700m2 purpose-built facility which is also home to the customer service and product support services for the region, a 1700m2 workshop, and also houses local administration, sales and project management teams.
