We’re Diggin’ It at SME!

Last week we attended SME 2016 in Phoenix, Arizona. The Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration which has over 15,000 members from over 100 countries. The year’s SME show set a new attendance record of over 6,300 attendees.

This event is the largest annual gathering of SME members in the world. Getting together to explore technological advances, new legislation, market trends, economic changes in the industry, and new products. This year’s technical sessions focused on mining standards, innovations in mine operations, and mining and equipment reliability were informative and very well-received.

Our booth attracted well-informed attendees the entire show! Attendees who visited our booth were able to get a first-hand look at our mining truck struts, mining shovel components, wheel chocks and heavy duty pads. They were able to see the impact of our proprietary TecsPak® material and find out how TecsPak can impact their mining operations through its superior performance, lower operating costs, and design versatility. Exhibiting at a show like SME gives us the opportunity to bring our innovative products directly to the end users.

During this event we were able to connect with key members in the mining industry in a fun and relaxed environment.  We had a great time at SME 2016 and we cannot wait until next year’s show in Denver, Colorado.

Look for Miner Elastomer’s Exhibit at SME Annual Conference & Expo 2016!

This year’s theme for the 2016 Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration (SME) Conference and Expo is “The Future for Mining in a Data-Driven World” which focuses on all facets and operations in the mining industry.  During this show Miner Elastomer Products (MEPC) will be showcasing our innovative TecsPak® products    which provide superior performance, lower operating costs, extended life cycle and design versatility to our customers.  

MEPC is a Direct OEM Tier 1 supplier for the mining industry and our products include shovel components, wheel chocks, heavy-duty pads & overtravel rings and mining truck suspensions.  These products use our proprietary TecsPak material which improves performance, reduces downtime due to maintenance and increases production output.

For example, our suspension system for haul trucks can boast payload capabilities ranging from 75 tons all the way to 240 tons.  These suspensions are packed with Elastomeric pads that are significantly different than the old Rubber technology you may be familiar.  MEPC’s suspension system components do not require oil to operate or nitrogen to recharge and are they don’t require a lot of maintenance.

We’d be happy to tell you more about what we can offer your company, so if you’re at SME this year, look for us in exhibit booth 1753.  You can also learn more about us by visiting our company’s website, or by reading last month’s blog post, Miner Elastomer’s Impact on the Mining Industry.
