With a focus on helping its mining customers invest in working smarter by doing more with less, Joy Global launched several new product and service solutions at MINExpo INTERNATIONAL 2016 in Las Vegas.
The machines debutee are:
- The P&H 77XD blasthole drill, which is highly versatile and can be configured for diesel or electric, single- or multi-pass, and rotary and hammer drilling. It’s designed to deliver an up to 10% maintenance and repair cost advantage.
- The Joy 22HD hybrid diesel LHD, part of the new line of Joy underground hard rock loaders designed to provide a 30% reduction in fuel consumption and boost productivity to deliver the lowest TCO in their class.
- The Joy 4LD hard rock loader, a robust machine designed to stand up to challenging narrow vein mining conditions for the long haul and provide 25% more breakout force.
MINExpo 2016 also marked the commercial launch of the P&H 2650CX hybrid shovel, an innovative new machine offering a 25% reduction in fuel consumption and an up to 15% reduction in total cost of ownership. The 2650CX was featured during daily in-booth Center Stage presentations and attendees could try operating one using a training simulator.
The latest rock breakers and CPAs from Montabert were on display, as well as Genuine Joy service products and consumables in the booth’s mock Service Center. Several interactive elements invited attendees to experience other areas of Joy Global’s product lines, including: a continuous miner simulator with Oculus Rift technology; an augmented reality table highlighting smart material handling options; and a Joy longwall visualization system with 3D graphics.
“Tough mining conditions require innovative product and service solutions. We’re excited to be here showcasing the latest world-class products and service solutions to help solve mining's toughest challenges,” said Joy Global CEO and President Ted Doheny. “Now, more than ever, customers are looking for productivity solutions, doing more with less by investing and working smarter. Our booth has real examples of cost and fuel savings from customer reference sites. We are honored to have two customer references joining us onstage to tell their stories."
Dieter Haage, Head of Mining Excellence, Underground, Anglo American Coal, was on the in-booth Center Stage discussing Anglo’s collaboration with Joy Global on the Longwall Mine of the Future project to boost coal production in Australia; and Gary Sinclair, General Manager, Manufacturing & Engineering Industries for Compass Minerals, discussed the companies’ partnership to optimize asset productivity and reliability at Compass’ salt operations. Both presentations are tied to Joy Global’s new JoySmart Solutions, fully customizable service, technology and equipment offerings designed to deliver value to today’s mining operations.
