Haver & Boecker hosted 27 University of Toronto mining engineering students at its plant, offering presentations on various aspects of vibrating screens and the screening process, as well as a tour of the plant.

The event was formed after Sam Marcuson, University of Toronto Materials Science and Engineering adjunct professor, contacted Haver & Boecker following a presentation by the company at a Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum event.

“I wanted to give my students field experience and a hands-on approach to understanding the industry and career they’ve chosen,” Marcuson says. “Screening is an important part of mineral processing, so seeing the equipment, talking to specialists and learning about the technical, economic and customer aspects is incredibly helpful.”

The event concluded with a tour of the plant.

“We’re excited that we could use our experience and knowledge to give these future industry leaders a firsthand look at what their career path holds,” says Peter Kilmurray, vice president of sales. “The group was very attentive and asked great questions throughout the day. We hope the information we conveyed leaves a lasting, positive impression that will help them in the years to come.”

Haver & Boecker plans to continue the program and offer it to other education institutions. According to the company, it will continue the program annually with the University of Toronto, as well.

Haver & Boecker, formerly W.S. Tyler, is a provider of processing, storage, mixing, packing, filling, palletizing and loading systems. The company’s mission is to deliver the best of these technologies to the marketplace.
