NPK Attends MinExpo 2016!


Wednesday, October 05, 2016

On September 26th through the 28th, NPK and Paus had the opportunity to attend MinExpo 2016 in Las Vegas.  It was quite the extravaganza.  We had two booths on display at the show.  The first one was inside the convention center and the other was outside.

The outside booth contained our B040 pedestal boom and a Paus explosive truck.  The explosive truck is a very interesting vehicle.  This truck is used to pump the explosive material called ANFO into all of the holes that are drilled into the face of the mine to continue on with the mine shaft.  

The booth was a straight walk back from the convention center where it was set up in the corner of the lot to the street and the main driveway into the center.  Anyone that was driving or walking down the street or even down the driveway had a great view of the equipment.  This was not the best view though.  The monorail in Vegas drove overhead of the outside booth where you were able to look down on the equipment.  If you rode the monorail, you could hear others overlooking the displays and making comments about how cool it was to look at all of the equipment below.

The inside booth was more successful than expected.  We were in a prime area where could see all of our equipment right away people as they walked through the registration area.  The inside booth had on display our GH23 hammer, B6500 pedestal boom, two scaler picks, the Paus scaler, the Paus MinCa 18A (an 18 passenger transport vehicle) and the new MinCa 5.1H hybrid transport vehicle.  The MinCa Hybrid got a lot of attention considering it was the only of its kind at the show.  We also had a lot of interest in the other pieces of equipment.  People were climbing in and out of the vehicles all day long, asking questions, checking out the features, and taking pictures.  There were a lot of potential customers that our team collected information from that will continue opening doors for the Paus line of mining vehicles.

NPK and our Paus colleagues made MinExpo a special event.  Everyone in both booths were able to educate all interested parties about the equipment that was set up in the booth as well as all of the other pieces of equipment that we have to offer.  Each person from NPK and Paus should be proud of what we have to offer and that the potential for success is very high from the experiences at the MinExpo show.
