AIMEX 2019 Conference

With less than 75 days to go until thousands of attendees gather at Sydney Showground for Asia Pacific’s International Mining Exhibition (AIMEX), more than 250 local and international companies are gearing up to put their best foot forward as part of the free-to-attend trade exhibition.

From 5-7 September, leading companies supplying the mining sector with technology and equipment that improves efficiency, productivity and sustainability will showcase their best at AIMEX, Australia’s longest-running mining event.

With exhibitors including Bosch Rexroth, Danfoss, CR Powered by Epiroc and XCMG Mining Equipment, the trade expo promises a one-stop destination to meet local and international suppliers and investigate new technologies.

Industrial hydraulics powerhouse Bosch Rexroth and ground engaging tools (GET) specialists CR Powered by Epiroc will be exhibiting in the Transformative Technology Pavilion, a new addition to the 2023 event showcasing exponential technologies such as AR, VR, robotics and data utilisation. The space will gather exhibitors who are solving specific industry issues with technology, like Bosch Rexroth’s eLion electrification solutions for mobile machinery or CR’s GET Trakka, a GET loss detection system that uses embedded IoT connected sensors.

New South Wales State Manager from Bosch Rexroth, Peter Hopewell, said AIMEX 2023 represents an exciting opportunity to meet face-to-face with suppliers and showcase new product lines from their hydraulics and industrial automation solutions.

“This year at AIMEX we will be unveiling exciting new products and technologies that will shape the future of the mining industry. This exhibition will be the first time we are showcasing our eLION solutions in Australia. eLION is Bosch Rexroth’s electrification solution specifically designed for the electrification of off highway machinery.”

While the Transformative Technology Pavilion would be dwarfed by one of CR’s Hurricane dragline buckets, the company is looking forward to engaging with customers around their digital solutions for maintenance and productivity.

Global Marketing Manager for CR Powered by Epiroc, Hannah Sabih, said, “We’re delighted to be exhibiting at AIMEX this year and sharing both our hardware and complementary technology with visitors. 

“We’ll be showcasing Titan 3330, our digger-based payload management system which visitors will be able to experience for themselves at the show,” Ms Sabbih said. 

“Titan has been proven across commodities to increase operational productivity by up to 22 per cent, tighten payload spread by up to 25 per cent, and reduce associated emissions by making load haul circuits more efficient.

“Of course, we’ll also have interactive models of our lips and GET for both surface and underground machines, designed to increase payload and decrease maintenance-related downtime.”

The second new addition to the trade exhibition this year is the Decarbonisation Zone, supported by International Copper Association Australia and populated by companies like Danfoss and XCMG Mining Equipment, aiming to offer real solutions to industry’s decarbonisation challenges and ESG obligations.

General Manager of Danfoss Pacific Region, Chris Page, said the mining industry has plenty of opportunity to support decarbonisation goals through smart solutions like enhanced energy efficiency and integrated energy systems.

“At Danfoss we integrate our ESG ambitions into everything we do. Our unique products and solutions provide real value to our customers through sustainable innovation and leading application know-how, supporting them in their journey toward decarbonisation in an intelligent and cost-efficient way,” Mr Page said.

“We are particularly proud to be supporting the mining industry as it takes a leading role in the transition to net zero and beyond. This year’s AIMEX conference and exhibition in Sydney provides a fantastic opportunity to hear more about the current challenges facing the industry and for partners to find out more about Danfoss’ energy efficient solutions.”

XCMG Mining Equipment may be a new face within the mining industry, but as the world’s third-largest construction machinery manufacturer, they have plenty to offer, particularly in the decarbonisation space.

Roy Rossini of XCMG said the company has been working on electrified and natural gas-powered products for almost a decade.

“As the world looks for a greener, cleaner construction industry, XCMG is delivering solutions that reduce carbon emissions across the whole industry chain and total life cycle,” Mr Rossini said.

“As early as 2013, XCMG were researching and developing new energy projects. They were the first in China to launch a natural gas-powered truck crane, motor grader, loader and hybrid excavators. The energy savings equate to over 25 per cent when compared to diesel powered products.”

Attendees interested in decarbonisation and transformative technology will also be interested in the free-to-attend conference that runs in parallel with AIMEX’s trade exhibition. Conference highlights and speakers will be announced in the coming weeks.
