BLM Automatic Will Continue to Help Miners in the New Golden Era for the Gold Mining Industry

Recent news and financial reports are predicting brighter days, increasing business opportunities and some good times ahead for the gold mining industry. Last week a report said, “Gold mining may have advanced a huge 64.5% and is currently just 8.55% away from a new 52-week high. After a brutal bear market that began back in August 2011, it looks like the precious metal miners have turned the corner and may be entering a multi-year bull market.”

Another recent report says, “Gold prices have soared nearly 20% so far this year… while silver and palladium rallied 12% and 10%, respectively. These precious metals have outperformed nearly every other commodity.” Just like we’ve been doing for many decades, BLM Automatic will continue to help miners in the days ahead – in what’s anticipated to be the new golden era for the gold mining industry. The anticipation of a bullish gold market and a new golden era for gold and precious metals is great news for the gold mining industry. It means there will be more demand for gold, and more extraction, separation and refining going on.

BLM Automatic centrifugal clutches keep gold mining operations running smoothly, and it’s something we’ve been doing for many years. As the gold market gets more bullish and continues to charge ahead to a new golden era, BLM Automatic will continue to be ready to help gold miners through every phase of the mining process: from the initial extraction, to the crushing by ball crushers and pulverizing mills, through all the handling of the gold to the refinement phases, and to the packaging and distribution at the end of it all.

Not just for gold mining, BLM Automatic clutches are used in every processing phase of the mining industries. They’re also used in any industry where raw materials are conveyed, and where material handling is involved.  For many years, many different types of industries, including precious metal mining industries, have relied on BLM Automatic to provide the highest quality centrifugal clutches. We design and manufacture many types of centrifugal clutches for a wide variety of applications, from the “big stuff” like military and defense applications, to smaller applications like clutches used in mixers in chemical labs — and a lot of medium-sized applications in between! BLM automatic clutches are used in the agriculture, construction, and packaging industries, and the list of industries goes on and on… While we don’t like to brag, we must point out that our clutches are considered the “gold standard” in all industries – not just mining!

BLM Automatic clutches are energy efficient, can be customized for specific industrial applications, and they are easy to maintain. Our centrifugal clutches also make it easy for our clients in the mining industries to take advantage of the golden opportunities anticipated for the days ahead… At BLM Automatic, we are ready to continue to meet the demands – and to continue to exceed our clients’ expectations – in a new golden era in the gold mining industry!

The Rising Demand—And Success—in the Mining Equipment Industry

If you follow the latest news and trends in American manufacturing, then you likely know that the industry is in the midst of a major recovery. Production and overall competitiveness in manufacturing is at levels not seen in many years, which is good news for business owners, manufacturing workers, and the country in general.

What this also means is that the economy is improving, and as this continues, along with more production, the demand for industrial machinery is expected to increase significantly. In fact, according to a recent report from IHS Technology, demand for manufacturing machines is expected to grow over 6%—more than twice the increase seen in 2013—and revenues are expected to reach $1.6 trillion this year.*

Furthermore, this rising demand for machinery and technology will result in a demand for mining tools and equipment. In fact, within the mining industry, experts predict that the global demand for mining machinery will grow 8.6% between now and 2017, reaching $135 billion.**

Steel and aluminum production, along with developments of other mining opportunities and growth in agriculture and construction, will push this demand throughout the world, with “voracious demand for mined materials”** in many developing countries serving as an incredible boost to the mining and mining equipment industries.

What does this mean for us and our customers? As premier manufacturers of the highest quality centrifugal clutches for clients in the mining industry, we see this as great news. Industrial clutches and centrifugal clutches are crucial to the mining industry, as well as to agriculture, construction, and many of the other industries in which machinery demand is expected to grow, and this means our clients will continue to see a demand for their products, and more need for ours.

All of our clutches ensure ease of maintenance, start loads efficiently (making them energy efficient), and can be customized for specific applications. This means that as your needs increase, you can be sure you will get the centrifugal clutches you need to meet and exceed your demands and expectations.

As we continue to see a rise in mining and industrial equipment requirements, we will look forward to making sure we do our part to keep this growth and success going strong.
