Australian companies are developing game changing solutions for those in the mining field by forming alliances that help to significantly reduce maintenance costs… even when it feels like there are simply no more costs to cut, according to REEDMININGEVENTS director Robby Clark.

Reed is organizing the largest mining exhibition in Australia this year, the Asia-Pacific International Mining Exhibition (AIMEX), which is set to showcase some of the newest innovations and cost-saving technologies to come to the mining industry. AIMEX will be held at the Sydney Showgrounds from September 1-4.

“Many proudly Australian companies, such as Brisbane-based Dingo, have developed a reputation as being leading local and global innovators, often in partnership with local and overseas firms,” Robby Clark said.

Dingo CEO Paul Higgins says that Dingo has partnered with a significant number of mining companies to implement proactive, condition-based maintenance programs that increase the percentage of healthy components to 90% or more.

“The strategic implementation of an asset health system is a largely untapped lever for increasing efficiency, reducing costs, and improving performance in maintenance, and a solution when there are simply no costs left to cut,” he said.

“Based on performance data spanning more than 100 mining operations across the US, Australia, Canada and Indonesia, Dingo has data showing that close to 50% of major components are operating in poor to critical condition.

“A systematic approach to asset health has saved the mining industry over $200 million to date by helping maintenance organizations save up to 40% on maintenance costs, increase fleet availability by up to 10% and extend component life by 20% or more,” he said.

Paul Higgins will be speaking at AIMEX about the benefits of collaboration and iteration on September 2. The Dingo stand will feature live, interactive demos of Dingo’s latest products, and visitors to the display will also be able to enter a competition to win an IPod Touch preloaded with the Austmine Field Inspection App.

AIMEX 2015 will be held at the Sydney Showgrounds, Olympic Park. Entry to the exhibition is free. Visit www.aimex.com.au to register.
