SINCE beginning operations in 1978, Alminco has established itself as a leading supplier of equipment and services to the global mining industry. In addition to providing world-class technology solutions such as the
unparalleled Scorpion range of crawler drill rigs, Alminco was recently honoured for its cutting-edge engineering prowess. The company was awarded the coveted Hunter Manufacturing Awards’ 2011 Excellence in Technology award for its Self Drilling Resin Bolt technology, an achievement backed by ACARP and awarded in conjunction with Alminco’s partner Minova. The Alminco Spyder Bolter also won an award, and was highly
commended for its innovative application mounted to the Longwall pan line. This year, Alminco has launched two enhanced Diablo Quickdusters – in 1.5 tonne and 4t variants – each performing above and beyond other stone dusting solutions.
The company will launch its Gopher Bluey globally in April – Alminco’s most advanced hand-held roof bolter, the Gopher is also the most powerful roof bolter on the Australian market. The launch of the Gopher will follow
more than 18 months of consultation with key mine site staff and leading mining contractors, many of whom utilise the Alminco suite of technology and solutions. With locations that cover the full breadth of NSW and Queensland’s key coal mining areas, Alminco has the ability to service equipment on site or in one of its dedicated service centres. Each and every product the company offers is manufactured to the highest safety standards and guidelines, and fully supported by thorough lifecycle solution programs.
