    Posted on September 30th, 2016 admin No comments

    MINExpo International was held from September 26-28th at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The show brought in over 1,800 companies and international audiences representing all major mining regions of the world to its 800,000 square foot space with 12 indoor and outdoor halls. It is the largest mining show on earth.


    It was great to connect with CalCo’s current customers and form new partnerships in an event that brings together professionals and experts worldwide in the mining industry.

    MINExpo delivered mining solutions and all types of equipment—excavating, materials handling and haulage, processing and preparation, drilling, electrical safety—as well as communications and computer technologies, replacement parts, and engineering, construction or reclamation services.

    MINExpo also discussed ways to increase productivity, control costs, keep operations competitive, improve safety and manage risk with new equipment, services, products and technology. Some of the show’s media partners included Aggregates & Mining Today, Canadian Mining & Energy, Coal International Russia, Latinomineria, and more.

  • A Scale Model for CEI Enterprises

    CEI Enterprises, an Astec Industries company, recently contracted CalCo to produce a 1:20 scale model of a mobile batch cement mixing plant, which measures 16’ x 8’. The concept is centered on highlighting their cement-mixing facility, which can be on a client’s site, and can start cement-mixing operations as quickly or temporarily as needed. The model itself took over two months to build (which is actually fast for this level of detail), and it separates into six individual sub-sections for shipping. The large container and rigid construction help protect the fragile display during the often unpredictable freight shipping process. Models can be created from 3D CAD files or from simple line drawings. CalCo’s hand-built models help show off large and complex solutions in a portable and immersive way. CalCo has been creating head-turning tradeshow and showroom models for over 60 years, so why not trust your next project with proven professionals?
