BREATHESAFE CAB

The cab on dis­play at the Breathesafe stand uses a dual HEPA (High-ef­fi­ciency Par­tic­u­late Air) fresh air-pres­suriser sys­tem to en­sure op­er­a­tors aren’t ex­posed to ex­ces­sive dust and fi­bres. The cab is also ca­pa­ble of au­to­mat­i­cally mon­i­tor­ing cab pres­sure lev­els and alert­ing site of­fice in the event of a breach.

With a four-tonne lift ca­pac­ity and a lift height of seven me­tres, JCB’s 541-70 tele­han­dler is a tough ma­chine built for load-bear­ing and sta­bil­ity. Heavy-duty axle feet help the tele­han­dler ab­sorb the im­mense stresses gen­er­ated in min­ing or con­struc­tion en­vi­ron­ments.

MAXISAFE G-FORCE IMPAX SAFETY GLOVES

MaxiSafe’s in­no­va­tive G-Force Impax safety gloves fea­ture heavy-duty im­pact and abra­sion pro­tec­tion on the fin­gers and back and an anti-vi­bra­tion sil­i­cone gel palm pad. The gloves also fea­ture durable syn­thetic anti-slip fin­ger­tips for work in slip­pery con­di­tions.

ASTEC BTI MBS12S ROCKBREAKER

Astec had its MBS12S por­ta­ble rockbreaker on dis­play at QME. Astec says the MBS12S of­fers a cost-ef­fec­tive on-plant per­ma­nent solution to por­ta­ble and mo­bile crush­ing ap­pli­ca­tions.

Auger Torque’s MT900 trencher is suit­able for ex­ca­va­tors and skid steer load­ers in the 3-5-tonne range and is in­tended for trenches be­tween 600mm and 900mm in depth. The trencher’s tung­sten teeth will rip through just about any­thing and will have you in­stalling that pipe or cable in no time.

JCB 155 HD SKID STEER

The 155 is one of the light­est skid steer load­ers in the JCB range. The ra­dial-lift JCB 155 has an op­er­at­ing ca­pac­ity of 703kg and is pow­ered by a 42kW diesel.

The XAS 88 air com­pres­sor can de­liver up to 100psi of pres­sure from its Kub­ota V 1505T en­gine, pro­duc­ing around five cu­bic me­tres of com­pressed air per minute. The XAS 88 can also be con­ve­niently towed be­hind any nor­mal pas­sen­ger car with­out the need for spe­cialty li­cences.

CAT WORK­SITE VR SIM­U­LA­TOR

On the high-tech side of things, Cat was at QME with its rev­o­lu­tion­ary work­site VR sim­u­la­tor. The sys­tem uses a vir­tual re­al­ity head­set and con­trollers to help op­er­a­tors learn in a re­al­is­tic en­vi­ron­ment, en­sur­ing ca­pa­ble op­er­a­tors in the fu­ture.

OP­TUS SATEL­LITE/MARCHNET MIN­ING COMMS TOWER

One of the re­al­i­ties of min­ing in Aus­tralia is just how re­mote the sites are, which can make com­mu­ni­ca­tion with the out­side world dif­fi­cult. Op­tus Satel­lite aims to give max­i­mum cov­er­age right across the coun­try with the help of satel­lite dish man­u­fac­turer MarchNet.

DIACON SAFETY PANELS

These durable plas­tic panels are for use on con­veyor belts.
