44 | ASIA Miner | Volume 14 • Issue 3 | 2017 Events AUSTRALIA'S most extensive mining exhibition, AIMEX, will be at Syd- ney Showground from August 29 to 31. Apart from the large exhibition, visitors will have access to leading industry minds via a free-to-attend conference program. The Future of Mining Conference will be held alongside the exhibition and is the first time that AIMEX will feature a conference component. It will showcase the latest developments and advances in technology across the mining value chain that extend the life of mine and ensure the highest level of safety and reliability. The program will feature key- note presentations, panel discussions, case study and white paper discussions covering: • Economic and political outlook for mining; • Technology and innovation, and what this means for businesses; • Automation and digital advancements to improve operational effi- ciency and maintenance; • Advancements in drilling and blasting, processing and bulk mate- rials handling; • Fleet performance and tyre management; and • Occupational health and safety. Presenters include World Coal Association chairman Mick Buffier, NSW Mining chief executive Stephen Galilee, The Bloomfield Group chairman John Richards, General Electric strategic account develop- ment manager Ian Larsen, Centennial Coal executive general manag- er Operations Excellence Steve Burgess and Mining3 chief executive Professor Paul Lever. The conference is free to attend but you need to register for AIMEX by visiting Key to its development has been organisers' close consultation with the mining industry, spearheaded by newly appointed AIMEX non-ex- ecutive chairman David Moult, who brings decades of global coal mining experience to the role, including his most recent position as managing director and CEO for Centennial Coal. "The ability to connect face-to-face is still so vital to business devel- opment and events like AIMEX enable you to do this in a time efficient manner. Being able to connect and interact with companies and their products is invaluable," said David Moult. AIMEX will also feature 'The Breakthrough' - a new platform show- casing emerging technologies that have the ability to provide significant benefit to the mining sector. This new-to-market technology has only been released in the last 18 months and this feature will see these technologies launch on mass to the sector. AIMEX event director Brandon Ward said AIMEX was the leading event for the mining sector, with its scale offering an unparalleled op- portunity for the industry to upskill, network and generate new business leads and opportunities. "No other event in the region has the same offering for visitors to network, collaborate and learn from one another, interact with over 300 exhibitors and discover some of the latest products from leading sup- pliers." ALMOST a year after acquiring one of Australia's leading mining tyre service firms, Kal Tire's Mining Tire Group will outline at AIMEX 2017 how it continues to expand its reach and services for custom- ers from coast to coast. "Kal Tire is committed to having a strong presence in the world's major mining markets, and Australia is an important mining region that we're investing in," says Kal Tire Mining Tire Group's senior vice president Dan Allan. "We see AIMEX as an opportunity to demon- strate our commitment to Australian mining customers and show- case some of our unique capabilities that drive value." Kal Tire's Mining Tire Group has been operating in Western Aus- tralia for almost seven years, offering a complete range of tyre ser- vice and supply solutions. In 2016, the organisation acquired the mining tyre services business from Klinge & Co, securing Kal Tire's presence across Australia. A leader in full service mining tyre management, Kal Tire is also an independent multi-brand dealer able to source the right tyre for the right application. The company specialises in value-added of- ferings, such as tyre repairs and recycling. In the last two years, Kal Tire has brought more unique solutions to Australia, including two facilities for the exclusive Ultra Repair™ product and process for repairing earthmover tyres with large injuries. "At AIMEX, we look forward to showcasing the breadth of our abil- ity to serve Australia. We are a global company with 45 years' ex- perience offering services in more than 20 countries," says Kal Tire Australia managing director Darren Flint. TOMRA technology on show TOMRA Sorting will introduce its multi-channel laser sorting technol- ogy at AIMEX 2017. The laser sorting technology will enable quartz and gold processes to achieve higher recovery, better quality and more consistent sorting of quartz material. Trade visitors will find TOMRA Sorting's mining specialists at stand 1420 ready to explain the key advantages sensor-based sorting can bring to mining operations. TOMRA says minerals that could not be differentiated with ex- isting technologies, such as colour sorting, X-ray transmission or near-infrared sensors, can now be identified and separated. The new technology enables the user to define and apply a greater number of sorting criteria, and thus sort with much greater pre- cision. The laser identification technology consists of a multi-channel la- ser scanning system with high-resolution imaging, and cutting-edge colour and textural selectivity. Multiple material characteristics such as brightness, colour, size, shape and surface texture are pro- cessed simultaneously. TOMRA says sensor-based sorting has the potential to address some of the major challenges the industry now faces - declining ore grades, rising production costs, water shortages and ever-increas- ing environmental regulations. Worldwide, TOMRA systems already contribute to increased pro- ductivity by delivering enhanced processing which is energy-effi- cient and cost-effective.
