FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: GK Attends SME 2018

 

 

Will Lichtenberger

An impressive group of innovative minds collaborated in Minneapolis last week. Thousands of mining industry professionals, as well as hundreds of leading companies, joined together to share ideas and innovations through technical sessions and exhibitions.

 

To build on our legacy as thought leaders in the industry, General Kinematics was represented by technical sessions from Will Lichtenberger, Territory Engineering Manager, and Ed Wipf. Both discussed the benefits of Two-Mass design STM-SCREEN™ including material responsiveness and improved reliability. In addition, Will highlighted the benefits behind the low-stress design and advantages of this engineering for limestone processing.

 

Appearing in the General Kinematics booth, the new BARRIER™ line of monitoring equipment (including VERTEX™, APEX™, and NOMADX™) made its first debut at a mining event.  The VIBRA-DRUM™ Lab Scale Grinding Drum also was on display at the General Kinematics booth to provide a demonstration of grinding capabilities with vibratory technology.

 

We would like to thank all who attended SME and visited the GK booth. It has been our pleasure to meet you all and we hope to see you again next year!
