With just over a month to go until the IMARC event in Melbourne, Australia, mining equipment, technology and service (METS) companies are preparing for several product launches across the 12,000 m² expo floor.
According to organisers of the International Mining and Resources Conference and Expo (IMARC), October 29-31, attendees will be the first to see the latest technology and innovations shaping the mining industry.
3D-P will be taking advantage of the 2019 event to promote its latest product, a hybrid LTE/Insta Mesh client, designed to be installed on-board a mine’s heavy mobile equipment.
This hybrid solution solves some of the LTE performance challenges encountered in the mining environment through extended coverage and seamless roaming, according to the company.
Bata Industrials Footwear, meanwhile, will be exhibiting its updated Helix Range with the release of its Beta Industrials Helix safety work boots, styled for the toughest Australian working conditions in multiple leather options and colours, it said.
Bata Industrials is launching its new safety innovation footwear, the PU/RUBBER Mining Gumboot, which combines the benefits of PU with the established slip and heat resistant qualities of a rubber sole.
BlastMovement Technologies is readying its official commercial release of the new Flight Enabled Detector at the 2019 expo. This is a hardware option that offers an alternative to mine operations having to walk the muckpile, post-blast, to retrieve data, the company says.
Electric Vehicle Systems & Technology will be showcasing its newest electric drive system for the first time at the event. The system is installed in a light utility vehicle intended for general mine-site duties, it says.
A global leader in measurement instrumentation, services and solutions for industrial process engineering, Endress & Hauser will be exhibiting the world’s first ever loop powered radiometric density gauge – the FMG50, according to IMARC organisers.
The Gammapilot FMG50 will be one of the most innovative Gamma detector in the market and, as the world’s first true two-wire loop powered Gamma Compact transmitter, has been developed according to the latest SIL standard IEC 61508 (SIL2/3) with Heartbeat Technology being implemented as a differentiator.
MIDECO will be launching the Bat Booth®, a personnel de-dusting system for mines and quarries helping prevent silicosis, black lung and other dust-related diseases.
And, XLM will be launching the Auxiliary Power Unit, which has been built to reduce fuel burn of major mining assets to under one litre per hour while idling, extending service intervals and maximising asset life.
With a showcase of augmented and virtual reality, robotics, AI, autonomous machinery, and sustainable innovations, people looking to attend should take advantage of the free expo pass that is on offer for those who pre-register before 28 October, IMARC organisers said.
