Out and about

WearCheck staff members from various branches have clocked up some big air-miles lately, attending conferences, meetings and expos in several countries to stay abreast with the latest technology and to learn more about the evolving needs of industry.

The annual West and Central African Mining Summit & Expo (WACA) takes place in Accra, Ghana. This year, the WearCheck guys who were on-site to meet prospective customers and to talk condition monitoring, included Daniel Boakye, manager of WearCheck Ghana, and Pierre de Villiers, senior technician.  

Iran hosted the 5th annual Mines and Mining Industry Expo (MINEX), featuring the latest mining innovations for Iran and the Middle East. This year, WearCheck was present for the first time. Managing director Neil Robinson and Peter Safadi, manager of WearCheck PM Dubai were on hand to meet delegates. Neil was interviewed by an Iranian TV station, where he talked about condition monitoring.

Seen at MINEX in Iran recently were Peter Safadi of WearCheck PM Dubai, Kevin Gerber of Set Point Laboratories and Neil Robinson, WearCheck MD.



The Middle East Mining Congress (MENA) once again took place in Dubai recently. This expo, which features “everything mining”, was attended by WearCheck for the first time. 


On hand to meet and greet delegates at MENA in Dubai, were Peter Safadi (WearCheck PM Dubai manager), Steven Lumley (technical manager), Ingy Elazizi and MD Neil Robinson.



Wind energy is a burgeoning source of alternative power, and the focus of Windaba, as Africa’s premier Wind Energy Conference, dovetails well with WearCheck’s wind turbine condition monitoring programme. Attending Cape Town’s 2016 Windaba expo from WearCheck were Steven Lumley (technical manager), diagnostician Quintin Verster and reliability solutions manager Philip Schutte.
