SALT LAKE CITY – March 26, 2019 – This year’s BAUMA tradeshow is catering to even more mining and exploration clientele. Held every three years, BAUMA’s last show attracted 138,929 visitors from the mining sector which equated to about 24% of the total attendance. Boart Longyear plans to capitalize on this growing interest in the mining and exploration sector and will be exhibiting in Hall C2, Stand 415 during BAUMA 2019.
Considered the largest construction and mining machinery show in the world, BAUMA attracts over a half million people from over 200 countries. The show will be held again April 8-14, 2019 in Munich, Germany. More than 63% of the exhibitors come from outside Germany making this show truly a global event.
This year’s BAUMA focuses on digitization within the industry as companies transition to the latest technologies to provide more actionable data. Boart Longyear has introduced a number of geological data services and instrumentation over the last few years to complement its drilling services and products divisions. Through the use of these tools and services, Boart Longyear is able to capture and provide valuable geological data and orebody knowledge to geologists and mining companies that creates immediate results for customers.
The company’s instrumentation line-up includes TruShot digital downhole survey technology which was introduced in mid-2018 and is used to capture high-quality, three-dimensional hole path data and to precisely determine the azimuth and dip measurement of boreholes. Oriented core is increasingly playing an important role in deposit definition and structural analysis. The TruCore core orientation tool provides a solution to determining the true direction of the mineralization of a geological feature, deposit and the associated structure.
Also catching the attention of the exploration industry is Boart Longyear’s innovative TruScan onsite core and chip scanning technology. TruScan provides geologists with non-destructive, accurate, high-density elemental concentration data for same-day continuous analysis of drill core.
Boart Longyear representatives will be discussing several new drilling products and services during BAUMA that are proving to increase safety, reduce wear, lessen environmental impact, and improve cost-effectiveness. Capabilities and equipment to be highlighted will include the LS250 MiniSonic rig which was developed for a wide variety of soft ground and shallow drilling projects. Utilizing sonic technology and an innovative advancement system, the MiniSonic rig minimizes friction for more efficient penetration. Its compact design and track-mounted versatility enable access to hard-to-reach drill sites with less environmental impact. The LS250 is CE-certified to conform to Europe’s strict health, safety, and environmental standards.
Also at the Boart Longyear stand, the company’s innovative line of Longyear diamond coring bits will be on display. Engineered to drill faster, last longer, and outperform existing bits technology, Longyear bits improve shift performance and ultimately put more core in the box. Additionally, the new XQ wireline coring rod will be featured that has an innovative self-aligning thread start geometry to ensures mating threads engage smoothly, without wedging or jamming. Smooth starting, in combination with case hardening, significantly improves productivity and wear life.
In January, Boart Longyear announced its newest top hammer tooling line, the DriftMaster series of rods and bits. DriftMaster rods and bits are designed with a unique thread profile for added endurance and strength in the most demanding tunneling, bolting, and drifting applications.
Specially designed overburden and construction tooling is also part of the lineup on display at Boart Longyear’s stand. BAUMA visitors will be able to learn about high-quality, precision tooling for anchoring and grouting, micro-piling, and innovative jet grouting.
The new technologies and solutions found at BAUMA continue to promote innovation, development, and productivity in the construction and mining industries not only in Europe but also throughout the world. BAUMA 2019 looks to provide valuable new information and tremendous networking opportunities for all who attend.
