Heyl & Patterson created the first conference specifically for users of railcar dumping systems in 1984. Thirty years later, the event still brings users together for industry best practices, product updates, training, roundtables and social networking. Attendees have access to Heyl & Patterson engineers and technicians to discuss up-to-date techniques and processes for efficient operations. The exchange of ideas is second to none, and dialogue revolves around actual problems and realistic solutions.
The conference provides an open-forum learning opportunity for users to offer their input on new developments. Whether the topic is implementing new tools or exploring the latest in upgrades, attendees play a large role in the continual enhancement of the rotary railcar dumper.
Heyl & Patterson will again bring together operators of its railcar dumper systems to discuss the newest technologies and issues that affect their jobs. The 2014 Dumper User Group Conference will be held on September 18 at the Sheraton Station Square in Pittsburgh, PA.
Participants in the 2014 Dumper User Group Conference will gather to share expertise and discuss the newest techniques and processes for efficient operation.
