Benjamin Alexander Hernandez from Nicaragua, a degree student at the Lomonosov Moscow State University, completed his two-month stay at the Institute of Mineral Processing Machines (IAM) on 30 August as part of the IAESTE exchange program. During his time in Freiberg, he assisted us with the crushing, classification/sorting and analysis of ores in our pilot plant in a nearby quarry.
Benjamin operated our jaw crusher and screening machine to preprocess the test material. He then divided it into representative samples, with which he then fed our impact mill. He also took time, weight and wear measurements.
Thank you, Benjamin, for the extremely pleasant and productive cooperation, and all the best for your remaining studies!
Each year we welcome a new student of the IAESTE exchange program at the Institute of Mineral Processing Machines (IAM). Have we aroused your curiosity, and you are even interested in studying full-time at the IAM? As part of the mechanical, environmental as well as industrial engineering studies, you can specialize in the field of processing technology and complete a practice-oriented study program with excellent career prospects! You can still enroll at the TU Mining Academy Freiberg until 30 September and become one of our new pioneers!
