For Immediate Release: General Kinematics Attends CIM


Derek Kerkera

Last week in Vancouver, British Columbia over 5,000 people attended the Canadian Institute of Mining, CIM Convention. Over the four day conference, 200 technical speakers gave presentations on up and coming technologies in the field of mining.



One of these presenters was General Kinematics’ very own Derek Kerkera. Derek described the capabilities of the STM-SCREEN™ Two-Mass Vibratory Screen and its continued stratification of applications. He highlighted the use of Two-Mass technology as a new tool increasingly used by gold and iron ore processors due to the high load capacity as well as load responsive nature.


Those who visited the General Kinematics booth at CIM were able to view General Kinematics new BARRIER™ product, VERTEX™, as well as pick the brains of our vibratory experts that attended the show.


General Kinematics would like to thank all that attended and made this year’s CIM Convention a success. We look forward to seeing you all again next year!
