Production of raw materials using IFE technologies

Your reliable partner aboveground and underground

When extracting primary raw materials in open-cast and underground mining, it is important to move large quantities and create perfectly processed intermediate products. Due to the variety, the applications require tailor-made solutions. Long-lasting devices are required, that can withstand harsh conditions for decades. For this purpose, IFE offers individual machines but also complete solutions consisting of (hopper) discharge feeders, grates and (classifying) screens, but also magnetic separators.


Robust & reliable - in continuous use

Rough working conditions and ambient conditions call for robust and durable machines that reliably meet the demands of mining.

Customized solutions

Individual customer processes require tailor-made solutions. IFE develops out the perfect solution based on your needs, for every input material and for all capacity requirements.

Decades of experience

IFE has been supplying for the mining industry form the very beginning and has been able to acquire extensive industry and application know-how.

Highest availabilities

IFE not only supplies machines for selected applications, but covers a large number of applications, including those that are not highly obvious, with its wide range of machine solutions.
