Mining

Client introduction:

Alcoa Willowdale has been a client of ASC for many years now and have many ASC machines in various workshops and store’s locations within their Wagerup mining program.

The Challenge:

The stores at Willowdale had been using standard push sweepers for many years and were all needing replacing after many years of effective heavy usage.

Dean (Manager) wanted to upgrade these older machines with even higher superior dust control, that would also fit between the racking and shelves that have been in place for decades.

The Solution:

WA Area Manager arranged a demonstration of the ASC Eureka M1 on site at the mine.

Dean liked the idea of a battery powered sweeper as it was able to perform when the machine slowed down, especially around fixed shelving. This was due to the M1’s larger maintenece free dust filter allowing it to be able to be used for longer periods of time.

The Result:

As Ross was returning to the ASC Perth based WA warehouse Dean called to say that it he was able to prove the advantages of the ASC Eureka M1 sweeper to his supervisor and to place an order for one M1 battery sweeper.

He requested delivered ASAP. Within a week Ross was able to return to site with the ASC M1 sweeper and conduct training with Dean and his crew. Alcoa love ASC and the Eureka machines.
