Having the most advanced bulk handling equipment and applications means efficient processing, lower operational costs and a positive effect on the bottom line. Unpredictable market conditions, increased competition and the pressure to meet demand regardless of the fluctuations in fuel or commodity prices mean that technologically up-to date materials handling systems are essential for success in a competitive environment.
The BULKEX 2006 exhibition is the place for Australia and Asia-Pacific based bulk handling professionals to learn about and source the latest technologies and leading suppliers to the industry. Exhibitors such as Fresco Systems
Australasia and SEW-Eurodrive will display a range of tailored solutions for the bulk handling sector.
Fresco’s stand at BULKEX 2006 will showcase a range of products from single items through to turnkey projects. Ken Hetherington, general manager, Fresco Systems Australasia, summed up the company’s capabilities, which will be displayed at BULKEX 2006.
“We have many technological and supply agreements worldwide, ensuring access to the latest proven technology. Our goal is to help reduce costs, improve operations, and increase quality. We approach each situation with a sincere attempt to understand unique customer needs and develop innovative solutions.”
“Our objective at BULKEX will be to let visitors experience firsthand why we are one of the largest suppliers in the Australasian market, with customers as far afield as the US and South Africa. Our stand at BULKEX will be attended by a large team of our experienced sales engineers demonstrating equipment, distributing brochures and fielding questions.”
“The Australian bulk materials handling area is a particularly exciting industry sector for SEW-Eurodrive, and one we’ve enjoyed supporting in recent years,” said SEW-Eurodrive managing director Robert Merola. “While the excellence the company has achieved in each individual product sector plays a vital role, it is the end-to-end and tailored nature of our solutions that has proven most important. This is the essence of the ‘packaged drives’ we’ll be displaying at BULKEX 2006, a powerful combination of premium components, Australian system engineering design and support, and seamless integration.”
Face-to-face contact with suppliers and hands-on experience of products is an extremely valuable method of comparing and evaluating the best procurement solutions. The Australian Bulk Handling Awards to be held during the BULKEX exhibition will highlight excellence in the bulk handling industry. Categories will include Bulk Handling Facility of the Year, Environmental Technology of the Year, Best Practice in OH&S, and Best Transport and Conveying Technology. Winners and nominees for awards can serve as indication of high standards for potential buyers looking to get the best performance and value.
