Agnico Eagle, a Canadian-based gold producer, commissioned Timberland Equipment to manufacture a custom quadruple head sheave assembly to replace an existing unit at its Goldex mine in Val d’Or, Quebec.
The design of the new sheave assembly was required to improve on the performance and durability characteristics of the original assembly while matching all of the existing mounting requirements.
Timberland’s 3D modeling technology allowed our engineering group to design an assembly with higher capacity and extended longevity benefits in an assembly that fit into the pre-existing installation constraints. The design also provided for improved servicing with replaceable polyurethane liners and independent lubrication provisions for ease of maintenance.
