After 7 exhibitions days at Bauma 2013 BETEK can look back on an extremely successful week in Munich.
Just in time for Bauma 2013 in Munich the different product ranges of BETEK presents their new product catalogues.
Wirtgen road milling machine W1500
The product area road milling around the road milling bits of BETEK/Wirtgen reported an excellent result on a test in Dotternhausen.
Video: Standard steel blade VS: BETEK's tungsten carbide blade
The product areaAgricultural wear parts created a new animation that shows disparities between different blades.

The ambitious construction project, which includes not least 26 kilometres of tunnels, various ventilation shafts, accommodation and rescue buildings, was begun in 2010 and is due to be finished in 2015. It is a very important project, as it connects Hong Kong to the national 16,000-kilometre high-speed rail network and strengthens Hong Kong’s position as the southern gateway to China. It simultaneously achieves the economic and social integration of the cities in the Pearl River Delta and also with the mainland. For the people this brings many benefits, including an enormous saving in time. With this new high-speed rail corridor the travel time from Guangzhou to Hong Kong, for example, will be halved: instead of 100 minutes, people making the journey will need just 50. However, until that day comes there is still a great deal to do on the building site.
In underground mining particularly difficult conditions prevail. Coal mining in particular makes great demands of man and machine. It is very important when mining coal that dust formation is kept as low as possible in order to minimise the risk of coal dust explosion – a much-feared explosive reaction in coal mining between coal dust powder and oxygen in the air.
With its crushing, sieving, conveying and washing machines, Seytas is also active in other countries of the Middle East and in North Africa.
Based on a conviction to produce and sell only high quality products, Yasin Duran has succeeded in making his company, Seytas, into one of the leading manufacturers of crushing machines in Turkey. This philosophy fits in with Betek perfectly – the consequence of which is a partnership in Turkey between Betek and Seytas.
Building and ceramic compounds are manufactured in mixers, which come in a wide range of types. What they all have in common is that they process one or more constituents to form a homogeneous compound. Mixers are exposed to a high degree of wearing. Now BETEK is launching special wear parts that are causing a stir on the sector of batch mixers.
The Fortescue Metals Group (FMG) is an Australian company based in Perth and is one of the country’s largest producers of iron ore. The mines owned by FMG include Cloudbreak Mine and Christmas Creek Mine. Wirtgen surface miners are used at both to extract iron ore.
To develop a good solution the Betek product managers are always prepared to go the extra mile. On this occasion that meant going from Aichhalden to Australia in order to perfect the bits for a Wirtgen surface miner. Six weeks later, junior product manager Christoph Haberstroh returned armed with new findings and good ideas. The result is called the BETEK WSM-27-42-85-VPH.
Six large excavators each with six replacement buckets stand ready to load the dumper truck. Betek naturally provides appropriate wear protection for the digger buckets as well: TungStuds contribute here too to increased productivity and longer service life.
When it comes to cost, many details contribute to success. Betek TungStuds can play a significant part in this. One good example of that is provided by the intended use of Betek TungStuds on the gigantic dumper trucks in the world’s second largest copper mine.
Five years of intensive development work were followed by a comprehensive practical test by ‘profi’ magazine. The cultivator blades developed by Betek was thoroughly put through its paces. After 2,500 hectares seven sets of traditional steel blades had been worn away, while the Betek tungsten carbide blades still had enough in reserve to outlast a further two sets of standard steel ones. The Betek tungsten carbide blades proved themselves a worthwhile investment in terms of both cost and efficiency.
Nobody has shaped the company’s development more than Karl Kammerer. The Betek and Simon Managing Director, who otherwise always leaves the limelight to his staff, was himself the centre of attention in May: celebrating 40 years of successful management of the tradition-steeped Black Forest company.
With the Betek W6AOCL-R bit, users reduce costs by 2.5x dependent on the site condition: the wear-optimised bit guarantees an extremely long service life and reduces costs considerably.
Betek Research and Development together with Product Management and users especially are pleased with a new milestone in bit development: The Betek round shank cutter bit W6AOCL-R not only bites through fine and surface layers of asphalt, it is also gnarling its teeth at costs.
