Takes place 12 to 16 September 2016 at the Expo Centre Nasrec, Johannesburg.
The South African mining industry is facing another challenging year with slower than expected economic growth, a prolonged and continuing downswing in commodity prices, an increase in short-term volatility, increased pressure on operating models, and regulatory uncertainty. Adding to these challenges is the increased difficulty in raising capital due to a loss of confidence by investors. However, this situation is not unique to South Africa, with mining companies the world over facing the same challenges.
It is at times like these that trade exhibitions and face-to-face interaction with customers becomes even more important in order to ensure business survival.
Since its inception more than 42 years ago, Electra Mining Africa has grown to become one of the largest mining and industrial exhibitions in the world. Visitors from all over South Africa, SADC and the rest of Africa, South America, USA, Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia attend Electra Mining Africa.
The show is expected to have a remarkable display of new and emerging technologies that will continue to revolutionise the manufacturing world. These innovations, coupled with traditional equipment, offer solutions to all manufacturers who seek increased productivity and lower cost.
Some of the metalworking related exhibitors that will take part include A J Charnaud, Afrox, Amada, Fast Cut Tooling and Supplies, M-Tool, Mafema Sales Services, Microstep SA, Talmac Machine Tools, TDC Cutting Tools South Africa, Toolquip & Allied and World Power Products.
