Digital technologies bring huge opportunities to mining companies.
The journey to digital transformation comes with a number of challenges that can be overcome by adopting a structured approach.
More affordable and smaller sensors allow producers to retro-fit older equipment with the new sensing hardware, while more advanced software networks with total connectivity between various systems allows one to leverage existing automation and control systems to offer new ways of approaching asset lifecycle and maintenance, productivity, and energy optimisation.
But how to start this journey?
Join us in this live webinar to learn:
A 4-step metal recovery improvement strategy to leverage the operational data you currently have
What are the current challenges mining companies are facing
Real-life examples of how large mining companies achieved huge savings in operational costs We will also open for questions and answer them at the end.
