INTERMAT 2015

We have recently returned from another successful Intermat Show 2015 in Paris.

Our new Ninja Button bit was launched at the show, a product suitable for most hard rock, top-hammer drilling applications. It is available in sizes ranging from 48mm to 64mm.

The bits feature distinct angle-faced grooves and deeper lateral flushing flutes, which aid in rock removal from the bit face and increase drilling speeds The NEW Ninja Button Bits have earned good reviews in the field, with users saying the bits drill straighter.

Steve Harper, product manager for Padley & Venables points out that straighter drilling also lessens the stress on rods, shanks and couplings that come behind the bits.

The open-face design of the bits enable the rock to fall into the void between the three face tips before being crushed, which adds directional stability and helps create the straighter hole.

BAUMA CHINA 2014

IMAG0043

After being a regular exhibitor at Bauma Munich trade exhibitions, Padley & Venables decided to participate at Bauma China 2014 (November 25-28, Shanghai New International Expo Centre) for the first time.

Bauma China with 300,000m2 of exhibition space, more than 3,100 exhibitors and over 191,000 visitors is the biggest trade show for construction equipment, machinery and building material.

After a long 18 hour trip from Sheffield to Manchester via Paris to Shanghai, our exhibition team (Glyn Storey, Steve Harper and Hans-Joachim Kopp) reached our stand in Hall N2.110, which was part of the CEA UK Pavilion.

Our stand was a corner stand – based in an ideal location near the entrance and exit doors of the hall and in the main walkway between halls N1 and N3. We were displaying pictures and product samples of our 3 product groups: rock-drilling, demolition- and contractors tools.

As soon as the show opened, we had our first visitor from Russia asking for rock-drilling brochures and distributor opportunities for Russia. As the show continued over the next few days, we had a good mix of existing and potential customers turning up.

We had a great opportunity to meet up with customers from countries as varied as Singapore, Vietnam, Japan, Korea, Saudi Arabia and even a few European customers from Ireland, Denmark and UK turned up.

We also made some progress in finding more distributors for China with the meetings at Bauma to be followed up during the coming weeks.

Overall our first participation at Bauma China 2014 can be considered a great success, and we are looking forward to returning to Bauma China 2016 in two years’ time. We were also very pleased with the professional organisation of the CEA UK Pavilion, Bauma China 2014 and the friendly hospitality of the Chinese people.

Padley & Venables launch our new Dual Drive Shank Rods.

Padley & Venables of Sheffield are pleased to announce the launch of a new Product – Dual Drive Shank Rods.

Launched in Sweden in May 2014 at Maskin Expo at the Aronsborg Conference Center, P&V are sure that this new product will become an invaluable tool in the Rock Drilling industry.

stage

 

Maskin Expo is a general equipment exhibition encompassing farming and forestry machinery as well as rock drilling.

This years’ Aronsborg event was organized by Global Drilling in association with Sandvik and Atlas under the umbrella of BEF, the Rock Drilling companies association. Many of its members were invited and exhibited.

Dual Drive Shank Rods

Designed to minimise the problems associated with premature breakage and the resulting downtime, the revolutionary design of the Dual-Drive Shank Rod isolates the threads from bending forces created by bit deflection while drilling, greatly reducing the stress on threads.

Forces are transmitted more effectively to the face of the bit through the skirt and body of the bit, therefore reducing exposure of the threads to potentially damaging percussive forces.

Dirt and rock debris are tough on threads; our unique design protects the threaded connection from exposure to debris while exiting the hole, this extends thread life.

Meeting the Chilean Miners!

P&V meet the famous Chilean miners group.

Earlier this year one of our Sales Managers Mr Pablo Padillo was on a business trip to visit mines in Chile alongside Gabriel Quinteros from our exclusive distributor, SIMMA S.A.

By pure chance they met up with the 33 miners who underwent the ordeal in MINA SAN JOSE in Copiapo area when the accident occurred back in 2010.

They were being a filmed for a TV spot/commercial for a local bank!

It was a great honour to meet them all!

OUR 12TH CONSECUTIVE BAUMA!

After celebrating our 100th Anniversary in 2011, we are proud to have reached another milestone, with our 12th consecutive appearance at Bauma Munich, in April 2013.

pnv-bauma-old-new

Within a newly designed stand in Hall C2 (Stand No.426), we will be featuring the complete range of P&V Rock Drilling Tools, Demolition Tools for Boom Mounted Hydraulic Breakers and Contractors’ Tools for Handheld Machines.

At the centre of the display will be our new range of Threaded Button Bits featuring our latest designs, which have been tested and proven in worksites all around the World. To celebrate this particular launch, the Bits also feature our new “high visibility” finish, a really new variation on the well known “P&V green”!

P&V has been responsible for many innovations in Rock Drilling and Breaking. We developed the manufacture of Percussive Button Bits in the mid 1960s, we established the first facility for overall carburising of Drill Rods in Europe and originated the manufacture of Male/Female Drill Rods. P&V also manufactures the widest range of Demolition Tools for use with most types of Boom Mounted Hydraulic Breakers and is the only remaining UK manufacturer of tools for Handheld Breakers.

P&V products are in continual use in many prestigious products and worksites, surface and underground. Our reputation for performance and quality is respected around the World. With our own Steel Rolling Mill, we offer the security of supply that is the envy of most other manufacturers.

We are looking forward to welcoming not only longstanding dealer/distributor friends from around the World but also to beginning new relationships with new contacts.

We look forward to meeting you in Hall C2, Stand No.426!

100th Year celebrations!

P&V is very pleased to be celebrating its 100th Anniversary this year and we’re obviously very proud to have reached this major milestone.

We see it as a testimony to the work of all our employees, past and present and to the support and trust of our owners, Mike Brunner and his late father Fred. Above all, to the support of our customers and trading partners around the World.

As part of the celebrations, we recently hosted a series of Open Days, when we welcomed more than 80 customers and dealers from most of our markets, here in the UK, across the whole of Europe, Asia, Southern Africa and South America. The Open Days were a great opportunity, not only to show our visitors the new production facilities we’ve installed but also to discuss future developments together and of course, to say thanks for all the support we receive.

Being 100 years old, as you’d expect, we try to think long term and that’s always our philosophy when we enter into our business relationships. Our oldest dealer, Oswald Record, has worked with us since 1924 and we’ve worked with many of our International dealers for several decades. We’re very proud that in those commercial relationships, we’ve also been able to develop strong personal friendships along the way.

Thanks once again to everyone involved and here’s to the next 100 years!
