SAFEX Newsletter No.58, 3rd Qtr 2016
Three quarters through the year and another change in Season is approaching. The Southern Hemisphere is approaching Summer and the North Winter-changes constant in the lifecycle of man and we are used to it. Change out there, however, isn’t constant, and life, technology and business as we knew it is changing at an ever rapid pace. The industry moved from NG to water based explosives over the period of 160 years, computers moved from vacuum tube systems to the smart phones in less than half that time. What changes does the industry anticipate in the next few years? What can be developed to make explosive rock breaking more safe and effective .3D printing offers a vast potential in printing of many materials-what about explosives and detonators? How can the cost of production be driven down using energetic printing techniques whilst maintaining a high safety culture at all times? All these questions will be answered over the next 10 years for those prepared to risk innovation and hold SHE dear to their organisations.
