Back to Basics
At the end of March, the first Comminution seminar "Back to Basics" took place in Santiago, Chile. This seminar was organized by Metso and received people from engineering and mining companies, among others.
The main idea was to open a space for the revision of concepts, sharing experiences and show progresses and innovations related with Comminution. In addition, the purpose was to show Metso's current position, our new offering and how today, more than ever, the company is strongly present providing solutions for the customers.
A total of approximately 170 persons attended the speeches during the two-day seminar. They were very satisfied about the technical level of the presentations of the Metso professionals. Among these we can outline Vytas Svalbonas's and Daniel Suarezís presentations that referred to different matters in relation with grinding, and the ones of Ivan Pavlovic (Crushing), Joao Pensa and Toshi Ohashi (Screens). There was also a very interesting presentation given by Bill OíRourke fom Teck Mining Co. who let us know the always important customer point of view.
Nevertheless, the topic which caught more attention was King Lim's presentation introducing two new products: MP12 Cone Crusher and 60x110e Gyratory Crusher. This, according to the attendants, was the most interesting one. Actually, this can be considered as the launch of these new machines.
Each day finished with a cocktail including live music, where Metso's personnel and the attendants had the opportunity of sharing a pleasant moment.
The majority of the attendants filled in a survey handed out at the end of the seminar. The feedback provided positive results in terms of satisfaction of expectations in addition to valuable comments and suggestions to be considered in future events. One of the most important conclusions was that customers assign a high value to this type of seminars where they can obtain from a first source the most recent progresses and technologies, useful to achieve their objectives. In fact, when asking if they would attend this seminar in the future or if they would recommend it to their colleagues, the answer was positive.
