Mining sectors throughout the Asia-Pacific region continue to be challenged by lower commodity prices, increased global economic volatility and rising production costs, with finding those 1% improvements and one-cent cost-savings in production even more relevant. Global suppliers of conveyor solutions and mechanical power transmission systems, Flexco and the SEW-EURODRIVE Group understand the impact of utilising innovative products and services to enhance the production performance of mine sites.
Flexco’s new H-Type Service Advantage Cartridge Primary Cleaner is acknowledgment of this reality, incorporating the H-Type Primary Cleaner, which has been a market favourite in Australia for twenty years, with the Service Advantage Cartridge System that already features on three popular secondary cleaners across the Flexco range. According to Mark Colburn, Flexco’s National Sales Manager in Australi: “By combining the reliable and popular H-Type with the tried and tested cartridge system, Flexco can now offer a complete easy-removal cartridge system for both the primary and secondary positions on the conveyor.”
Similarly, the SEW-EURODRIVE Group offers mining customers extensive knowhow and product adaptations for their mechanical power transmission systems and motor control electronics. Industrial Gears Product Manager at SEW-EURODRIVE, Ian Tribe, suggests the effectiveness of their product ranges for mining applications is evident in their record of supplying the Australian mining industry: “recently, we successfully supplied four 1.25 MW drives for an iron ore project in West Australia bringing our total installations in Australia withgearboxes larger than 1 MW to 36.”
Mining companies and personnel will have the chance to source products and services, such as the H-Type Service Advantage Cartridge Primary Cleaner (stand 1711) and SEW EURODRIVE’s XS Range (stand 1311), at the 2015 edition of the biennial Asia-Pacific’s International Mining Exhibition (AIMEX).
AIMEX 2015 will be held at the Sydney Showground from 1 – 4 September 2015, also providing Australian and international METS suppliers with a platform to present their advantageous innovations to mining professionals. “AIMEX is the biggest show on our calendar and a great place to officially launch new products and show our conveyor solutions to a domestic and international audience,” Colburn said.
“SEW-EURODRIVE is preparing to launch a number of new products at AIMEX 2015, suited for different mining applications, including the X Series Mixer/Agitator Gear Unit, PX Series of Planetary – Bevel Helical Gear Units and the Australian assembled XS Range, which is suitedfor conveyor drives in the 20 to 100 kW (approx.) ranges”, Tribe announced.
