Busy Stand for Bunting Magnetics at RWM
At this year’s rejuvenated RWM Exhibition (NEC, Birmingham, 12th – 13th September), the Bunting Magnetics and Master Magnets stand proved to be a great success. Being positioned in a prime stand in front of the entrance, and with working metal separators on the stand, visitors were drawn to see the latest developments in magnetic separation technology.
In January 2018, Prysm Group announced that they had taken on the flagging RWM exhibition. Attendance of the RWM exhibition in 2017 had been poor and many exhibitors had lost faith with the event.
At an event in the Google headquarters in London, RWM exhibition manager Nick Woore announced their intention to inject new life into the show. The plans sounded positive, although there was still a great deal of doubt from many exhibitors. In fact, in 2018 the number of exhibitors were lower than in 2017, but visitors numbers were higher.
“It was great to see people queuing outside the entrance on the first morning of the exhibition,” said Dave Hills, Bunting’s Head of Sales. “As soon as the doors opened, our stand was full of visitors.”
Bunting had two operating production-sized metal separators on the stand:
- Eddy Current Separator – for separating and recovering non-ferrous metals;
- Stainless Steel Magnetic Separator – the SSSC version for recovering large fist-sized balls of fragmented stainless steel;
Dave Hills also gave two presentations on ‘Stainless Steel Separation in Modern Day Recycling’.
“Being able to show visitors the separation capabilities of the equipment was vitally important,” explained Hills. “This made it easier to relate to their metal separation requirements. Following the exhibition we will be conducting tests at our Master Magnets Redditch laboratory, where we can confirm the separation capabilities. It is going to be a busy few months.”
Hills also explained the importance of a successful RWM. “Recycling and good waste management is no longer an option but a necessity and it is essential that there is a UK based trade event. We are looking forward to hearing how the organisers plan to further develop RWM for 2019.”
