MENZEL goes AIMEX: Australia's biggest mining fair

MENZEL will be exhibitor at Australia’s longest-running mining event - the Asia-Pacific’s International Mining Exhibition (AIMEX) 2023 - in September.

The mining sector is where we dive into today since our motors are used in mines all over the world: As mill drives, ventilation fan drives, conveyor and crusher motors, either as belt driven or directly coupled. Because of this engagement we decided to exhibit at Australia’s longest-running mining event- the Asia-Pacific’s International Mining Exhibition (AIMEX) 2023 - in September.
