Hillhead 2016, A Success!
WipWare president Tom Palangio spent some time in the UK with Mike McLoughlin, the director of Rockmate Ltd (middle) and Alexander Kartashev from DSK Limited (right), attending meetings and Hillhead 2016, which took place June 28-30 at Tarmac’s Hillhead Quarry, near Buxton, Derbyshire.
While on-site, Mr. Palangio was able to offer live demonstrations of WipWare’s latest fragmentation analysis software, with recently implemented GIS capabilities. “The new iPad interface looks great, and the auto-scaling feature will allow users to get real-time, accurate data at the blast pile,” said Mr. McLaughlin, whose Rockmate blast optimization software will work hand-in-hand with WipWare’s latest offering.
A record 18,961 visitors attended this year’s event – representing a 7.2% increase in attendance over the previous show in 2014 – with 476 exhibitors expressing great satisfaction with the number and quality of visitors who came. The second day’s rain did little to dampen attendance and kept the dust down at the working face where numerous machines demonstrated their features.
Billed as the largest working quarry show in the world, Hillhead hosts this event every 2 years and plans are already underway for Hillhead 2018.
