Caterpillar will support MINExpo 2016 with an exhibit showcasing machines, technology, expertise and practical knowledge that miners can apply to help address their cost, productivity and efficiency challenges in today’s mining environment.
Though Cat® machines—for both surface and underground mining—will fill the view, the talk will focus on how Cat technology and know-how combines to help mining operations address and solve the issues that are most important to them. The main stage in the exhibit will feature presentations describing how mining companies, Cat dealers and Caterpillar work together to improve operations.
“The challenge for all in the mining industry now is to optimize operations—to drive costs down while creating sustainable businesses that can weather downturns,” says Caterpillar Resource Industries Group President Denise Johnson.
“We believe that through our expertise and the knowledge of our dealers—combined with innovative technologies and our growing data analysis capabilities—we can help them not only survive, but thrive in these challenging times.”
Johnson was recently selected by the National Mining Association (NMA) to chair MINExpo 2016.
“Chairing this show is a great honor, and it’s a testament to Caterpillar’s partnership with this critical industry,” she says. “We’re proud to be a long-time supporter of the NMA, and we are excited to participate in another MINExpo. It’s an opportunity for us all to learn from each other how to increase productivity, control costs and improve overall operations.”
In addition to displays of its surface and underground mining equipment, Caterpillar will dedicate areas to technology, data analytics, equipment life-cycle management and the global Cat dealer network.
“At our core, we’re committed to making quality products that are safe and reliable,” says Johnson. “But we also recognize that the step-change results our customers need don’t rely solely on the machines. In the ‘age of smart iron’ it’s technology, data and automation that will be the game-changer. And when we combine this with a focus on site performance, analytics and knowledge-partnering with our customers, we’ll deliver the sustainable efficiencies our customers need today, and in the future.”
