Hitachi’s booth at MINExpo, Sept. 26-28 in Las Vegas will showcase equipment, innovative technology and integrated solutions that mines can apply to reduce overall costs and optimize productivity.
The 22,400-square-foot “Hitachi to the Core” booth will give visitors a chance to learn what Hitachi can do for their bottom line by getting up-close and personal with some of the most efficient, reliable and durable excavators and haul trucks at the show, meeting with global product experts, taking the haul truck simulator challenge and more.
“MINExpo is the perfect international stage to showcase Hitachi’s equipment, technologies and solutions,” said Craig Lamarque, division manager, Hitachi Mining Division Americas. “Hitachi develops technologies and solutions that are integrated into the equipment, which allows us to deliver an unmatched value to customers. That’s because this approach optimizes productivity, reduces overall costs and makes it easier for mine operations to succeed in this challenging environment, which is our ultimate goal in serving our customers.”
An EX-6 Series mining excavator and an AC-3 Series electric-drive rigid frame hauler will be on display at the booth.
Beyond equipment, Hitachi will highlight a number of “smart iron” technology innovations designed to help mines become more efficient and productive. Examples of this include the company’s peripheral vision support system and its autonomous haulage and trolley assist technologies.
During the show, Hitachi will also launch a new customer tool that is designed to enhance the availability and accessibility of mining excavator parts for the Americas’ market.
“Hitachi Ltd, our parent company, is active in a variety of industries including everything from transportation to robotics,” said Lamarque. “This breadth of expertise gives us the ability to vertically integrate technologies and solutions and provide customers with products and services that are more efficient, reliable and durable to the core.”
Hitachi is located at booth #8527 – Central Hall. Hitachi employees from dozens of countries will be on hand during the show, responding to customers’ questions and discussing their business needs.
