A processing gateway REF: MMPR 530

Benefits to the industry: Staying on top of the ever changing demands of industry coupled with the pending changes to South African legislation requires a dynamic approach when it comes to Pedestrian Detection Systems (PDS). One of the biggest challenges is to get customers to understand the different technologies and what each can do, and then to get them to embrace these technologies.

The Booyco Controller Interface, available through Booyco Electronics, is essentially a processing gateway through which all sensing technologies and informational data is channelled to create the requisite artificial intelligence that is fed to the control systems of the various trackless mobile machinery (TMM).

The Booyco Electronics PDS incorporates VLF technology for pedestrian detection either on surface or underground together with GPS technology for vehicle detection on surface. It delivers specific warning, controlled slow-down and stopping zone alerts around a vehicle when detecting pedestrians or other vehicles.

Safety in drilling REF: MMPR 527

Benefits to the industry: The risk of handling inner tubes and drill rods while extracting core samples is a well-known problem for drillers around the world. Despite safety regulations, accidents with severe injuries still occur.

Atlas Copco’s Diamec Smart core drilling rigs have an advanced control system that enables automatic functions such as drilling and adding and removing of rods. By using the unique rod handler, the operator can perform the work from a safe distance. All adding and removal of in the hole (ITH) equipment are done automatically.

Tubular handrailing system REF: MMPR 524

Benefits to the industry: The Mentis stainless steel tubular handrailing system is corrosion-resistant and maintenance free. Stainless steel offers excellent stain and corrosion resistant properties and is an attractive alternative to traditional mild steel or painted handrailing systems. In addition, where handrailing is corrosion-resistant the wear normally associated with standard handrailings installed in metal unfriendly environments is inhibited, so accidents associated with broken handrailings will be excluded.


Stand strong REF: MMPR 529

Benefits to the industry: Remacon is a market leader in the manufacture and distribution of YFELs – a free standing, flexible option for dry bulk material separation, locally designed for South African conditions. The YFEL is movable and fast to erect with the carrier attachment. YFELs can be easily uplifted with forklifts and moved around to create or change bin area shapes and lengths, or loaded onto trucks and relocated to other premises.


Bright light supreme MMPR 526

Benefits to the industry: Torre Parts and Components have announced VisionX LED lights for drilling rigs in the mining industry. The Pitmaster 400W-500W lights can be installed on operators’ cabs to provide a bright LED wide-beam.

All housings are thermally managed to ensure no touch burns will occur if an operator or mechanic comes into contact with the housing and all lighting heads are low voltage fixtures with no risk of electrical shock or burn other than the inverter systems required to drive in high voltage applications.

The products use VisionX’s patented Prime Drive technology integrated into the circuitry giving prolonged LED life, enhanced reliability and expanded light output.

Sustainability: The lights are better for the environment because they can reduce carbon footprint. LED lamps reduce CO2 emissions and counteract the greenhouse effect. Changing to just one single LED bulb can keep half a ton of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere through its life cycle. LEDs are 98% recyclable.

Fighting fires MMPR 525

Benefits to the industry: DoseTech’s FireDos foam dosing systems have a number of features that include accurate foam concentrates dosing proportional to flow, fixed or mobile with flow range from 50ℓ/minute to 20 000ℓ/minute. Other features include vertical or horizontal mounting, electrically-operated ball valves for remote operation, foam concentrates accuracy proportional to flow, and low system pressure loss through water motor.

Grate work REF: MMPR 489


AndrewxBenefits to the industry: Andrew Mentis’s open ended system (OES) on its RS40 Rectagrid floor grating panels offers customers some unbeatable advantages.

The OES is more cost competitive compared to banded panels, and lead times are also much shorter, especially for customers who usually cut and fit standard panels on site.

Because of the manufacturing process, the half pitch on all sides of the panels results in an almost seamless walkway. Aesthetically pleasing pattern-matching is made possible by the accurate pitching, so that you are presented with a non-jointed appearance when the open-ended panels are joined.

The banding of panels is eliminated by using the OES, and because there is no welding, corrosion is significantly minimised. Customers therefore benefit from both cost effectiveness and simplicity of design and installation.


Efficient lifting REF :MMPR 487


EnerpacxBenefits to the industry: Enerpac’s PL-Series Pow’R-Lock portable lift system provides continuous locking protection during lift, lower and hold functions. Patent-pending control technology synchronises cylinder and lock nut for smooth and efficient lifting and lowering. The unique double-acting cylinder offers a low collapsed height to accommodate more lifting applications. A simple two-button pendant allows operation of raise and lower functions from up to 6m away. Its ergonomic handle has six positions for comfortable handling and folds when not in use.
