As vendors from around the world gather at Olympic Park to showcase new tools and services for the Australian mining industry, Fenner Dunlop Australia unveiled a new 24/7 conveyor diagnostic and alert system at the AIMEX exhibition in Sydney.
The Asia Pacific’s premier mining exhibition AIMEX made a return to Sydney’s Olympic Park, the focus was on innovation to help delegates make efficiency improvements and lift productivity in the face of softening global resources prices. More than 600 exhibitors showcased the latest in mining equipment, products and services.
For Fenner Dunlop Australia, as long-term participants in the exhibition, this was a perfect opportunity to see competitors’ products and services. It was also the chance to network and catch up with colleagues and suppliers, and make new contacts, whilst keeping an eye on key products, trends and developments.
The Fenner Dunlop Australia’s new round-the-clock alarm system unveiled at the exhibition, is designed to alert users the instant any significant steel cord damage or splice damage is detected, and the nature of the problem. It also incorporates a splice monitoring system for the remote measurement of splice elongation. “This can help prevent a common form of splice failure in fabric and solid woven belting,” said the company’s sales and marketing representative, Alana Beaton.
Other new Fenner Dunlop products on display at AIMEX were; Ultra Tuff belting for high wear applications, high impact utility belting, a mine approved fire-resistant and anti-static (FRAS) heavy duty, lightweight nylon roller and Hi-Integrity Splicing (HIS) technology, which Fenner Dunlop has introduced into Australian mining operations for rubber-plied belts.
Alana said “Fenner Dunlop aimed to provide innovative, value-adding conveyor system solutions with measurable, sustainable results with an emphasis on safety.”
