Automation at Aimex show

2011 Dec 19

Atlas Copco put on an impressive display with a winning theme at the Asia-Pacific International Mining Show (AIMEX) held in Sydney, Australia.

The prestigious AIMEX trade show which is held once every four years, is one of the biggest shows in the world for Atlas Copco equipment and this year the crowds had plenty of reason to pay special attention.

On display was a new range of innovative Atlas Copco products demonstrating the latest in automated functions for mining and construction operations both above and below ground.

Some 640 exhibitors competed for the visitors? attention at Sydney Olympic Park, but it was the Atlas Copco stand that won them over with a combination of the SmartROC D65 surface crawler, Pit Viper 235 and Simba L6C ? all based on the new RCS 4 (Rig Control System) platform.

In addition, the Pit Viper training simulator attracted great interest along with Atlas Copco?s Master Driller training programs.

Sue Goc of Atlas Copco in Australia said: ?The show was a great success and the positive feedback has been tremendous.?
AIMEX is the premier event for mining and industry buyers throughout the Asia-Pacific region. This year?s show attracted a record number of visitors ? an increase of 40 per cent on 2007 ? and was the largest mining exhibition ever held in Australia.

According to the organizers, the success of this year?s event was largely due to the booming Australian mining industry with major investments planned over the next five to ten years.

The next AIMEX show in Sydney is scheduled to be held Sept 1?4, 2015.
