Together with our German partner, KIMA Process Control, we have developed a technological solution, MagoSense, designed specifically for the mining industry. This innovative real time mill monitor gathers information in order to optimize the working conditions of the mill.


We launched Expand, Magotteaux innovative longer-lasting vertical mill casting.

We offer first-class vertical mill wear parts for all your grinding applications for the best value for money available in today’s market. Expand combines the best performance and smaller ecological footprint for all your grinding applications.


Magotteaux’ new challenge is to turn itself into a 21st century innovative company reducing cycle time for new solution development and guaranteeing customer return within 1 year.

Building on our strengths (such as Magotteaux proprietary technology: composite, XCC®), our new philosophy is ‘test quick, learn fast”, identifying & utilizing levers from emerging technologies supporting Industry 4.0 revolution : big Data, robotics, Artificial Intelligence, sensor.


Duocast® High Performance
New constant profile design for optimal efficiency of grinding tires for vertical mills.

Joint ventures with Xingcheng Special Steel Works Co., Ltd for the production and the commercialization of forged grinding balls and Grintec advanced Materials Technology Co., Ltd. for ceramic beads and balls.


Unique holistic approach developed by Magotteaux for their mining customers. It consists of fusing different expertise: pulp & surface chemistry + grinding efficiency + wear mechanisms.


With its strategic acquisitions Magotteaux is able to offer a complete range of grinding media solutions: low chromium (cast and forged), high chromium, rods and ceramic beads (for ultra-fine grinding).
