The 2016 MINExpo show was held at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV on September 26-28th. This year’s event, drew in a record breaking 43,000 registered guests from all over the world. The convention centers North, Central and South Hall’s totaling more than 840,000 sq. ft. was shared by 1,900 exhibitors over the three-day event.
The Sealeze team of Richmond, Virginia presented their brush products for sealing and cleaning, belts and auger’s. We also had on display, our unlimited capabilities with coiling and shaping the strip brush product into seals for shafts and cabinet pass-through’s. We had a wide variety of shapes and styles using metal filament in both strip and staple set designs. Also, one of our newer motorized display’s showing the installation of our “Auger – Flight” brushes used to improve efficiency of material handling augers.
Sealeze was the single representative in the show of a brush manufacturer. We had a great response from the visitors, many of which were genuinely interested in how brush can help them in the mining industry. We learned what the mining industry is looking for in brush technology, while sharing some of our technology and creative solutions to customer problems. It was a great opportunity to spread the word of brush to another booming industry.
