IFAT 2016


We are a global player. Today, we deliver our quality products from Bochum
to over 50 nations on earth.

We are a skilled partner for our customers in tapping emerging markets. We are committed to more than just “Made in Germany”, but also “Created in Germany”, which we see as our challenge and duty.

Together with our customers, we are taking steps towards sustainable environmental protection. Products are often coated prior to delivery. Under hard working conditions, this coating lasts no more than a few minutes.

SWB products don’t require this coating. Their quality can be “seen” in the truest sense of the word. At the same time, we’re saving the environment. In this way, we live up to our reputation.

Good to know

SWB’s complete package includes the development, production and supply of the optimal wear parts and components for your machines. Our customers benefit from our long-term experience in application consulting. Together we optimize the usage of their machines and plants.

In working together with our customers, an open dialogue between partners
results in a win-win situation.

We see ourselves as a manufacturer, supplier and consultant for our customers. Their success is intertwined closely with SWB’s success. This strategy is based on long-term cooperation instead of short-term profit. We advise our customers in selecting wear parts for their systems. The customer provides all of the necessary information about the system and the type of material being processed.

Our technicians create a clear recommendation for them. We wouldn’t be SWB if our approach were to simply adapt solutions and only follow conventional paths. Rather, we want to be a trailblazer through independent research and continuous innovation of our products. That’s why today we supply not only highly wear-resistant castings, but also all of the necessary components for profitable system operation.

Collaborations between us and our customers take place in many areas. SWB customers are recyclers. In contrast to raw steel production with furnaces, SWB melts secondary raw materials in induction furnaces. This greatly reduces CO2 emissions. In this aspect as well, we are making a significant contribution to environmental protection.

Good to know

SWB is world leader in differential hardened hammers in the field of shredder technology.



Used and scrapped metal is a valuable secondary raw material. Its utilization is sustainable and saves resources. SWB develops and produces highly wear-resistant tools and components for all dominant types of scrap recycling – shredders and shears – that provide recyclers with guaranteed reliability, performance, and profitability.


Drilling heads developed by SWB and cast from highly hardened steel have crushed the largest slag lumps around the world. Further slag processing up to any desired grain size can be performed safely and economically with SWB blow bars made of cast alloyed steels in high-hardness variants, tempered for hardness and toughness, or as steel/ceramic composite casting.


From shell limestone over granite and basalt to the primary crushing of porphyry – SWB offers the matching tools and machine linings for each type of rock processing. Cast from steel, in various combinations of toughness and hardness that are individually adapted for each application. Safety, performance, and profitability are included.


The refractory industry has extremely high demands on wear resistance of materials. SWB’s answer is the intimate combination between cast steel and ceramics. Challenge SWB to prove it!


SWB is a leading specialist in the manufacture of highly wear-resistant cast grinding balls, grinding rings, and other castings for industrial grinding. Highest wear resistance and verified quality guarantee a safe and efficient operation to plant operators.


Recycling is the future. For the recuperation of construction remnants – from soft brick to steel-reinforced concrete – SWB develops and produces impact tools that are adapted to the individual application. Steel/ceramic composite-cast wear tools made by SWB guarantee the highest performance and reliability under the toughest conditions.


Machines and plants for sand and gravel extraction and processing are subject to extreme wear and tear. Highly wear-resistant cast tools and components made by SWB reduce this wear and increase the profitability of minerals extraction and processing.


Cast wear-resistant tools and components are of great influence on the profitability in mining – in both underground and surface operations. SWB develops and produces parts with high and extremely high wear resistances – both as single and serial castings.


The product portfolio of SWB includes crushing tools in a multitude of shapes and applications for the lime and cement industry. Cast steel/ceramic composite materials are a new development by SWB for this sector; their operation is dependable and economic.


Due to the high design flexibility in casting and the wide selection of highly wear-resistant steels with variable degrees of hardness and toughness, the options for the manufacture of crushing tools are manifold. SWB manufactures wear tools in small and large series for use in the recycling of wood, rubber, and various wastes. We will be happy to develop your demand-oriented solutions.

„Quality isn’t easy to attain. You must strive for quality.“

Acknowledging and implementing this statement is the foundation in all areas of our business. For us, quality begins much earlier. Even while advising our customers, it is our determination and part of who we are to always deliver the best product for every need.

We design, produce and deliver quality. The consistent application of this basic concept also requires precise and sophisticated control of all production processes at all times, ranging from construction to heat treatment. We create optimal wear parts with the help of state-of-the-art CAD-CAM technologies.

The subsequent production steps, casting process and heat treatment, are tested and approved prior to production start with simulation programmes. These then serve as the basis to control the real production process. We don’t leave it up to chance. Because quality is no coincidence, but rather the result of optimally developed production processes.


Complex production methods make unified quality assuran­ce indispensable throughout all of the steps.

By labelling each individual casting, we ensure that product quality can be traced throughout the entire production process. This is how we maintain the consistent high quality standard of our products. Our production follows strict guidelines based on ISO EN 9001 (2000).

At the end of the production process, each casting is inspected inside and out. Besides a hardness test specific to material and product, 100% of the wear parts we deliver undergo a magnetic fracture test and, if necessary, an ultrasonic test.

The products are then tested for weight and dimensions, and subsequently packed into delivery units within tight ranges. This ensures that rotors run in balance.

How important is this?

Here’s an example: a 134 kg hammer weighs 39,000 kg on a running rotor and impacts things with this force! We give you peace of mind – and we stand behind our name.






Extracting steel from steel scrap requires less than half of the energy required to produce steel from ore. Because it is so economical, several hundred million tonnes of scrap metal are recycled around the world each year. SWB produces the following for scrap metal recycling:

  • Shredder hammers
  • Caps
  • Anvils
  • Grids
  • Segments

and all other shredder components constantly subjected to wear like angles, side liners, wearing plates, hammer pins and fixing elements.


SWB products are used where crushing takes place.

crushing mineral resources like stone, ore and coal as well as crushing secondary resources like brick and construction remnants.

We develop, produce and deliver parts for horizontal and vertical impact crushing.

  • Blow bars
  • Impact elements
  • Swing beam rails
  • Rotor protection plates

and the complete wear-resistant interior linings of impact crushers.

For mineral processing in general we produce and deliver:

  • Grinding balls
  • Grinding rings and yokes
  • Hammers for hammer mills
  • Segments for briquetting presses

The hammers and blow bars from SWB pack a punch. They break the resistance of the hardest materials: quartz, granite, basalt, porphyry – as well as hard bricks and reinforced concrete in construction remnants. Impact force requires hardness and toughness. SWB wear parts have both of these qualities. They are strong enough to crush the hardest materials, yet tough enough to withstand the constant forces of abrasion.
