Hitachi to display new mining equipment at AIMEX

World Coal,

Hitachi is preparing to demonstrate an array of integrated solutions to the mining industry at AIMEX, including its EH5000AC-3 rigid dump truck (RDT) simulator. The EH5000AC-3 is Hitachi’s largest RDT, with a payload class of 300 t and a reputation for superior hauling capabilities in the opencast mining industry. It features advanced drive control systems, a high-powered engine and a strong-structured body. The simulator will be set up to replicate an RDT plus trailer configuration and visitors can try it out.

Hitachi will also be demonstrating the Hitachi Theatre. Here, visitors can see the company’s equipment in action, including the EX80000-6 backhoe excavator. It weighs over 800 t and is able to load a 300 t payload in the Hitachi EH50000AC-3 truck with four passes. The excavator is transported to site by many large floats and semi-trailers and assembled onsite with the assistance of large cranes

Additionally, Hitachi will be discussing its recent partnership and its exclusive distribution of Wenco International Mining System.

“We’re very excited about this partnership, which brings together the products and services of Hitachi Construction Machinery with Wenco's expertise in production optimisation, asset health, safety and systems connectivity for mining operations. This combination delivers a genuinely scalable fleet management model for any size or type of mine and quarry,” Eric says. “We’re looking forward to talking about this new partnership at AIMEX, where our team will also be on hand to discuss our specialist finance through Marubeni Equipment Finance.”
