Capabilities & Materials

Multotec develops, designs and manufactures a range of screen media to best practice design criteria using state-of-the-art design software and leading engineering expertise.

Multotec’s value proposition is not only the manufacture and supply of equipment, but also the complete installation, commissioning, and maintenance services for our equipment. This approach ensures optimisation for any screen media application or machine type. Our primary focus is the delivery of value-adding solutions at the lowest cost of ownership.

Multotec has an extensive range of screen media products and ancillaries designed for the local Australasian market. Our product lines utilise a comprehensive range of fit-for-purpose construction materials. These materials include:

  • Compression moulded rubber of 60 – 80 Shore hardness using various proprietary rubber compounds
  • Injection moulded rubber of 40 – 60 Shore hardness using various proprietary rubber compounds
  •  Injection moulded polyurethane screen media is widely used in applications on fine wet screening, dewatering applications and a host of other applications requiring high screen efficiencies and large open area
  • Solid impact panels in either rubber or polyurethane. Rubber panels can be supplied with forged plate or ceramic inserts to improve impact resistance and media life in heavy-duty applications
  • Hand-cast polyurethane can be supplied where a unique application demands a specific type of polyurethane panel and a suitable mould for injection moulding does not exist or cannot be made within the timeframe
  • Woven wedge wire is manufactured by Multotec for use in special applications requiring wedge wire moulded into a cast polyurethane frame or for use in sieve bend frames
  • Multotec manufacture polyurethane and rubber materials for use in screen media fixing systems, rail covers, sideliners, beam covers and our velocity curtains
Multotec holds several patents, and a proven track record for reliability and efficiency, and is constantly developing innovative products and adopting effective processes.Find out more
