Established in 1993, mining equipment manufacturer Tecman is the largest manufacturer of custom-made rock breaker boom systems globally.
For the past four years, Tecman has manufactured more than 100 custom-designed breaker boom systems each year, which are exported through its global dealer network and factory-owned operations in France and South Africa. Tecman also manufactures more than 150 hydraulic hammers a year for boom fitment and sale into mining and contracting markets.
Tecman has full in-house control over all the critical manufacturing processes of its products, including all facets of design (mechanical, electronic and hydraulic), fabrication of boom and column sections, hammer and cylinder parts for machining and assembly, hydraulic and electronic system assembly, and final assembly and testing.
The company’s newly installed robot welding system further ensures that weld penetration and fillet size is consistent even in hard to reach areas of the product’s rotary frame.
Tecman France and South Africa also specialise in hydraulic hammer repair and have more than 6 000 parts lines for non-Tecman hydraulic hammers. Tecman South Africa is also a distributor for Hartl crusher buckets and Terminator high-impact hammers.
All Tecman machinery is manufactured to comply with the relevant articles of the European Machinery Directive. Under the auspices of the European Machinery Directive, all Tecman manufactured products are backed with a complete technical file outlining material procurement and standards processes, manufacturing processes, testing and compliance with noise, and electronic emissions and efficiency requirements.
The company has a site area of 26 000 m2 in France and 4 150 m2 in South Africa, with fixed assets valued at about €6.8-million.
