Quarry suppliers to be showcased at AIMEX

Paul Baker, exhibition director with Reed Mining Events has said that because of the similarities between the mining and quarry industries there will be a lot of equipment and services on display that are relevant to both.
?With quarrying essentially the mining of rock, sand and gravel, there is significant commonality between mining and quarrying activities,? Mr Baker said.
Numerous service and product providers have indicated their intentions to launch new products during this time, among them Kinder & Co, the conveyor specialist that will demonstrate its latest conveying technology consisting of a modular polyurethane lining system, a motor cover for coal preparation and a mineral processing plant.
SEW-Eurodrive will display its range of gear units, geared motors and complete drive assemblies which have all been designed for heavy duty applications with high transmitted loads. These are suitable for mining, mineral processing and quarrying systems.
Loadrite, the supplier of advanced scale systems used to capture and report on critical data, has also revealed that it will showcase its latest equipment during the expo.
Some 50 exhibitors have indicated in their product profile that they will be displaying products, services and equipment for quarrying, crushing and screening.
?There will be a huge range and quality of technology showcased at AIMEX 2011, along with demonstrations of how new technology can be utilised to improve efficiencies and productivity while reducing operating costs,? Mr Baker added.
?And much of this technology will flow through to the quarry sector in the coming years.?
Australian companies will exhibit their products and services to visitors from key markets around the world, including China, India, South Africa, Indonesia, New Zealand, Russia, the United States and Canada. There will also be dedicated exhibition areas for countries such as Germany, the USA, Canada, Italy and South Africa.
Other suppliers to the quarrying industry at the expo will include Atlas Copco, Bradken, Caterpillar, Cummins, Esco, Hitachi, Hyundai, Nepean Group, Orica/Minova, Scania and Weir Minerals.
