AC-Tek realized the industry's need for a new, easy to use, conveyor design program filled with the latest in technology and current industry standards. Sidewinder is AC-Tek's response to this need. It represents a new standard in easy to use conveyor design software and engineering technoloy.
Ac-Tek's Core business is the design, and optimization, of complex overland conveyor systems. Everything we do, from in-house laboratory testing and software development, to commissioning and field measurements, has this single goal in mind. We strive to provide our clients with the latest in conveyor technology, resulting in a safe, reliable, and commercially competitive design.
Our engineering team has an extensive repertoire containing some of the most complex and challenging conveyor systems designed to date. These systems include long distance, horizontally curved, high tonnage systems, high lift, regenerative, and pipe conveyors.
One of the world's leading experts on the design of overland conveyors, David Kruse of Advanced Conveyor Technologies Inc (AC-Tek), was recently in South Africa to speak at the Beltcon 15 conference, held in Johannesburg early September. Modern Mining managed to catch up with him at the offices of Sandvik Materials Handling (SMH) for an interview which focused on AC-Tek's considerable contributions to overland conveyor technology.
