Since 1985, RME has been the global leading manufacturer and supplier of grinding mill relining technologies and optimisation services.

Mill relining is the most specialised and important task in the maintenance of a mineral concentrator. Mill relining dictates shut down times, mill availability and utilisation, through-put, and therefore mine site profitability.

RME’s passion and mission has always been to minimise mill relining time and to increase relining crews’ safety. RME Mill Relining System technologies, used effectively, have quartered the time taken to reline large minerals processing grinding mills. Looking forward, RME’s focus is to secure the potential of RME’s Mill Relining System performance for each and every one of our Customers, past, present and future.

Our commitment to industry is to visibly, defensibly and sustainably improve our Customers’ concentrator performance. Discover today how the RME Mill Relining System is delivering exceptional safety and performance for our Customers around the world.

Why RME?

Fast, reliable, safe. Now future-proofed.

Since the introduction of the RME Mill Relining System, we’ve quartered our Customers' traditional mill relining times. In addition, a great many safety issues associated with manual relining activities have been eliminated.

This same pursuit has driven our development of RME's Advanced Technology suite which removes the need for crew to be inside the mill during relining – an environment which enables us to significantly accelerate machine movements and relining speeds.

For more than 35 years, we’ve worked with hundreds of mine sites globally to optimise their mineral processing operations. Our mission is to work with you to create high production rates, short shutdowns and safe working environments.
