The new Arcfix range of stud welded M16 and M20 wear studs was displayed for the first time recently on the Antec Engineering Stand at the QME Show held in July in Mackay, Queensland.
The 2010 QME was the largest yet attended by a record 10,700 people. The successful wear stud display attracted a lot of interest from the local Bowen Basin Mines representatives and mining contractors alike who visited the Antec Stand.
Arcfix wear studs reduce wear on surfaces on ground-engaging equipment exposed to abrasion by forming a barrier between the machinery and the material being moved. The wear studs are made from a high chromium and high carbon abrasion-resistant material that has proved to be a successful answer to wear problems in open pit mines, quarries, steelworks and ore preparation applications.
The Arcfix range of stud welding products will also be on display at the Goldfields Mining Expo (GME) in Kalgoorlie during 26th – 28th October, 2010. There will be continuous demonstrations of the stud welding process on the Antec Stand No. 3062.
The Stand will also feature the KBS fire protection system, which shows various options to stop fires on electrical cables as well as electrical cable and PVC pipe penetrations and joints.
Also on display will be the new range of dust extractor systems developed by Antec Engineering. These dust extractors are designed to fit over the top of an open hopper and collect fine cement dust particles solving many OH&S issues relating to dust.
