Since 1984 Sintech has supplied the South African market with clutches, brakes and engineering solutions for a range of applications in mining and mining-related industries. Sintech supplies services and products for the mining process itself as well as for the processing of mined products.

Sintech’s unique experience ensures consultation from the initial design phase through to project completion. Sintech supplied products are market leaders in their respective fields and are all supplied from international corporations that provide world-class design, product support and cutting-edge technology.

Sintech employs more than 50 people across its two facilities in Johannesburg and Durban. Both facilities are ISO 9001:2015 certified and fall under the Generic codes for B-BBEE Level 1. They pride themselves on offering excellent customer service and unique services, including service exchange units, new units and stock control, on-site testing and monitoring, design and consultancy and equipment upgrades.

Once a customer’s support programme is in place, service exchange clutches and brakes are available for immediate replacement, ensuring zero or minimal production or operational downtime. All units are rebuilt to original equipment specifications and carry a full factory warranty. 

Sintech has an extensive stockholding of new clutches and brakes, used for specification onto new applications or to replace units that are beyond economical repair and offers on-site control of customers’ stock, to optimise cost and availability. This service is available for new clutches and brakes, as well as for supporting spare parts. 

Factory-trained service technicians and service vehicles are available 24/7 to provide product support and regular clutch or brake condition monitoring and preventive maintenance is part of Sintech’s programme to ensure the least downtime for customers. 

Since its inception in 1984, Sintech, in conjunction with its overseas principals, has been responsible for the design and specification of a range of clutch, brake and drive-system installations for earthmoving and mining applications. 

Whether to improve efficiency or health and safety, Sintech and its overseas principals can recommend a path for customers to upgrade to the latest international standards.

Carlisle, FMC, Eurorecambi and Goetze are key suppliers to Sintech and have been instrumental in its growth since 1984 in the earthmoving and mining markets.
