Presentation 1: Using modern design technology to remove common workplace hazards
Crushing is a dangerous business. Every year there are serious accidents on the job site and some are fatal. Nearly all could have been avoided with better safe work practices. Safety is more than a list of instructions or better guards. Safety needs to be a big part the workplace culture – always on everyone’s minds so it's second nature. Safety is also a numbers game. The more risk your workers are exposed to, the greater the probability you or your staff will be hurt. The more nails you need to pound in a day, the better the chances you will hit your thumb!
This presentation will focus on how modern manufacturing and design technology can remove many of the common hazards associated with the crushing and screening processes, and in doing so, improve production, reduce downtime and lower operating costs.
Presenter: Barry Proctor, ELRUS Aggregate Systems
Presentation 2: Mobile crushing technologies: Increasing safety and efficiencies
This presentation will focus on basic crushing principles and applications, safety innovations in mobile crushing, and setup and mobilization made safer and faster.
Presenter: Craig Rutherford, Technical Sales Manager, Wirtgen Group
Presentation 3: Contact-free belt scale solutions
With traditional belt scales come traditional maintenance issues, including the regular servicing of moving parts and contact areas; as well as the managing of challenging environmental factors such as vibration, wind, dust, temperature and changing angles of conveyors, which affect the accuracy of traditional belt scales.
Charles Arnot, Volumetric Specialist for Optical Belt, will walk through the features and benefits of a contact-free volumetric scanner that uses the latest laser technology to scan material crossing the conveyor belt with a measurement volumetric accuracy of 99.8% (1-mm variance). This technology allows the end user to eliminate many of the challenges that come with traditional belt scales, while only requiring a single calibration with no need for any ongoing recalibration. Recent customer installations and applications for the aggregate industry will be discussed.
