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 Microstep SA. MicroStep SA will be showcasing state of the art technologies such as Mobile Laser Welding and I-Beam Cutting.  MicroStep SA can also offer you an entire solution by partnering with their sister company PowerStep Power Solutions.   With the unstable Power Supply in Africa, a Diesel Generator is vital to ensure non stop smooth manufacturing.   So once you have purchased your CNC Plasma Cutting Machine together with your PowerStep Diesel Generator you are all set to use the provided technologies to save you time and money.  Come to our stand in hall 6, B03 and chat to us about how we can assist you or contact us now: http://www.microstep.co.za/en/microstep-news.aspx For visitor pre-registration, go to www.electramining.co.za or for further information contact Leatitia van Straten at email [email protected]
