Training for South Africa Representative at Master Magnets and Bunting Magnetics
Eder Design’s Commercial Director Laura Joubert’s week-long magnetic separator and metal detector training programme proved to be very successful.
“Keeping our representatives informed and updated is so important,” explained Dave Hills, Bunting’s Head of Sales. “We do this by regularly supporting our representatives in their home territories and also by arranging specific training in the UK.”
Eder Design represent Bunting Magnetics in South Africa. The company also represents companies including Piovan. The company is well-respected in the plastic sector and is looking to expand into other industries.
The training programme for Laura focused on the application of metal separation equipment in specific industrial sectors. At the Master Magnets facility in Redditch, Laura met with Joe Cetti and Phil Tree. Joe provided training on Metal Detectors, discussing how they are used in the mining and aggregate industry. With the Metal Detection Ltd brand, Master Magnets has a strong product portfolio. These include the TN77, QTA and QDC Metal Detectors.
With South Africa having a strong mining history, there are many opportunities for magnetic separators and metal detectors. Phil talked to Laura about how Magnetic Separators are used to remove tramp metal and also to enhance the grade of mineral ores. Master Magnets has previously sold large Electro Overband Magnets to mining operations in South Africa.
Whilst at the Master Magnets plant, Laura also witnessed tests on the Stainless Steel Magnetic Separator. Recycling is an emerging industry in the country. The demand for technology to recover and clean metal is expected to rise in the next few years.
Training on applications in the plastics sector took place at Bunting’s Berkhamsted facility. Eder Design has already supplied plastic manufacturers with FF Drawer Filter Magnets and quickTRON Metal Detectors. The training focused on the latest developments, including developments in the management of plastic waste.
“The visit was hugely beneficial,” commented Dave. “We wish to thank Laura for taking the time to come over to the UK. Being here gave us the opportunity for her to meet our team and see the equipment.”
Bunting and Master Magnets are continually looking to expand their distributor network. To enquire about becoming a distributor, please contact Dave Hills:
