Innovations creating customer value

Sandvik Rock Processing Solutions continuously develops services and solutions that help our customers in the mining and infrastructure industries improve their productivity and sustainability.

In 2021 we introduced SAM™ by Sandvik, a rock processing digital service designed to support our customers’ crushing and screening plants. Among other things, this subscription-based service offers customers a fleet overview and administrative tools. User-friendly SAM supports operators, service technicians and others responsible for running daily operations with data to improve business performance and optimize work activities.

Innovative new solutions are helping our customers meet their sustainability targets. This year we launched BIO Tool Grease for hydraulic hammers. The new grease is based on biodegradable esters and Polyalphaolefin (PAO) fluids and is suitable for both high and low temperature applications. It is the first product in our Green Range, and the two most important criteria when developing it were environmental criteria and lubricity.

During the year we also launched the digitally connected Sandvik® QI353 impact crusher, a modular platform engineered for high uptime, lower operational costs and increased efficiency. Our impact crushers combine the latest advancements in engineering technology and digitalization and are the result of decades of research and innovation.

Our VSI crusher has been helping Australian company Enviro Sand achieve its business goals and contributes to increased circularity. Enviro Sand collects glass that was previously destined for landfill, and processes it by removing plastics, papers and metals. It then uses the VSI crusher to crush the glass bits that are sold back to industries for construction and asphalt products, among others. The VSI crusher, which uses glass to crush the glass, enables Enviro Sand to produce a more high-grade product. Sandvik also supports the company with aftermarket service, support and ongoing training.
