Just a few weeks away, ConExpo is all set to debut its first-ever show in Latin America. The evolutionary convention, presented by the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), brings together the world’s most cutting-edge construction equipment, products, services and technologies.
This year, the fun will be had in Santiago, Chile: One of the country’s most advanced economies, and also where there is more than $70 billion going into new and ongoing construction (and mining? or just construction?) projects, according to ConExpo in reference to AEM and BMI. Plus, from the meetings being held beneath the roof of the convention center, Espacio Riesco, Santiago’s city center is less than 7 miles away. Sounds like an excellent meeting house for a few days!
Close to 20 different categories exist for exhibitors. Drilling Equipment, Generators, Tires, Testing Equipment, Aggregates Processing, Asphalt Production and Paving, Heavy Duty Trucks, Blasting Products, Lifting-Cranes and the list goes on.
At the show, General Kinematics will feature the STM™ Vibrating Screen, a vibratory screen that utilizes General Kinematics’ proven two-mass drive technology that does not dampen under surge loads. Engineered with a urethane deck system, the design allows for easy replacement and an extra heavy-duty frame that withstands rigorous application.
Also in the General Kinematics’ fleet for the show, we will feature the new 2015 SXS SCREEN™: superb vibratory equipment for the C&D recycling industry. The design works side by side, and is engineered with double the stroke of traditional vibratory screens. The multi-stream capabilities are ideal for construction and demolition waste, as well as municipal solid waste systems.
Albeit exciting to learn about new equipment and technology to improve process flows, the show will also feature training sessions, seminars, conferences and workshops that will cover topics related to the most recent trends and technologies in the industry. GK is excited to attend this first inaugural ConExpo Latin America show, and meet with customers old and new. In addition to this show, AEM also organizes the world-wide-known show, Con Expo Con/AGG which GK will exhibit at in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2017. We hope to see you there!
