QME 2014 Preview: Ground engaging tools

Abrasion Resistant Materials Pty Ltd (A.R.M*) have announced that a complimentary mini Ground Engaging Tools (GET) Conference will be held on their stand (OS385), at the Queensland Mining & Engineering (QME) Exhibition, for all visitors who pre-register online with A.R.M*. 

The GET Conference will provide attendees of QME and visitors to A.R.M*'s stand with a informative and educational knowledge sharing opportunity about how to reduce costs by using their innovative range of Ground Engaging Tools. 

This conference will be held on all three days of QME 2014 from 12.00pm to 1.00pm, with lunch to be provided free of charge for all conference delegates. A.R.M* will demonstrate and explain how their GET solutions are able to increase the lifespan of a bulldozer's cutting edges to two years and how their Dragline and Shovel Bucket adaptors can last for a full year, with their quick tips proved to regularly last more than month. 

Positions are strictly limited to those who have pre-registered with A.R.M* online, at www.arm.com.au.

There will also be live demonstrations on how to effectively utilise A.R.M's new Hammerless Ripper Tips, as well as a brief overview of how to permanently change the cost structure of a mine site and entire mining company; by improving efficiency, productivity and cost-effectiveness.

Attendees will see how Dragline Buckets with A.R.M*'s Hardfacing applied to all surface are more productive than standard Dragline Buckets and examples of what to look for when procuring or selecting a hardfacing supplier. 

Many of A.R.M*'s clients have achieved cost-savings of 30 per cent-50 per cent within their first year of adopting an A.R.M* Maintenance Strategy. 

Abrasion Resistant Materials manufacture Tungsten Carbide Hardfacing, utilising proprietary welding techniques to apply Tungsten Carbide to various wear parts such as Dragline adapters, this creates an alternative maintenance management strategy to reduce costs by improving the typical performance of cast wear parts and plate style wear parts.

In operation since 1996, A.R.M* has become one of the largest Tungsten Carbide hardfacing manufacturers in Australia and is located in Meadowbrook, Queensland. Recently, A.R.M* commissioned a new purpose built state-of-the-art 1000sqm factory, constructed to specifically service the mining industry into the future.
