MINEXPO Must Sees
Bridgestone will display its VREP radial tire designed for heavy-duty mining operations. The tire features a unique tread pattern for longer tread life combined with a high-durability casing to provide reduced cost per ton. Trapezoidal blocks and circumferential grooves in the tread help improve resistance to lateral forces, as well as minimize heat generation.
Cardinal plans to display its EPR+ Plus Truck Scale. Each scale bridge features interconnecting load blocks and receivers for a no-bolt installation. Every unit includes receiving brackets for easy installation of optional side rails, which can be ordered with the scale or at a later date. The mounting brackets are flush mounted into the scale deck to allow for pit-type applications.
Cat will showcase several new and innovative items, including the new 6030B FS hydraulic front shovel. The machine is the first of the Cat B Series hydraulic shovels, featuring a state-of-the-art new cab and operator environment with productivity enhancing on-board electronics.
Eriez plans to display its Series 7000 suspended electromagnets, available in both manual and self-cleaning, designed to remove tramp iron from material on conveyor belts. The air-cooled, dry-type electromagnets require no coolant fluids and reduce power consumption by up to 50 percent.
Furukawa will feature its new pedestal units with 360-degree base rotation. Custom designed from 16 to 32 feet, the pedestals are ideal for use in mining and quarry applications, including vessel cleanout.
GeoSonics/Vibra-Tech plans to showcase its Remote Monitoring Technology, which is said to be the industry’s first fully automated monitoring system with web-based data access. Remote instrumentation operates without an onsite operator. The technology automatically converts site data into engineering information that is then stored in each customer’s encrypted database.
