Tell us about your company’s products & services?
Banding & ID Solutions Africa’s featured product on display at Electra Mining Africa 2016 is the UL4000-C Ultra-Lok application tool, which is ideal for hose clamping, which has been designed to replace band and buckle systems in high-volume applications. Combined with the Ultra-Lok band and buckle system, the UL4000-C delivers a finished product which is stronger than crimped or swaged industrial hose assemblies.
This makes clamping three to five times faster than conventional banding tools when tensioning a band clamp. The UL4000-C is one of the most powerful portable band clamp installation tools on the market. It is powered by advanced lithium-ion battery technology, which holds a charge for longer with consistent peak performance through the life of the battery.
Banding & ID Solutions will also be demonstrating its range of products that have been tried-and-tested in the local market. In addition to the new product line, the company will also host various interactive demonstrations on its more well-established Band-It application tools, together with a range of cable ties and stainless steel buckles and straps.
Qualified sales staff, who will conduct the product demonstrations, will be available to provide guests with in-depth details on application-specific queries. We hope to obtain new business at Electra Mining by conveying the message that we are an authorised manufacturer and distributor of genuine, high-quality Band-It products backed up by dedicated after-sales and technical support.
Banding & ID Solutions will be exhibiting at Stand B01 in Hall 6.

Is there anything else you would like to add?
The ongoing commodities slump has resulted in restricted budgets in mining and associated industries, which can benefit from a range of innovative and cost-effective solutions being displayed at Electra Mining Africa 2016 by Banding & ID Solutions Africa.
The company has developed a strong reputation in the local mining sector, which will be bolstered further through our exhibit. Electra Mining Africa is recognised as the largest and most important mining conference in Africa that attracts over 40 000 delegates from across the continent. This is the ideal platform for us to consolidate existing business, while generating new business leads.
Cable theft is another major issue in South Africa. Estimates put the loss at between R5-billion and R7-billion a year, with serious implications for the economy, as well as the reliability of electricity supply and security. Cable theft can cause power outages that could last for days, with copper cable thefts constituting more than 90% of all these thefts. Further, the replacement of stolen cables has to take preference over essential maintenance.
The security of any traditional cable installation can be increased by applying an Ultra-Lok clamp as frequently as every 150 mm of cable. The cost of replacing the stolen cables and resultant downtime are both high, as cable theft affects production and costs. The Ultra-Lok clamp is a robust clamping solution, with a tamper proof design. It is easy to install, and can drastically decrease cable theft in the industry.
