Industry 4.0 Mining Insights: Improve Plant Performance, Maintenance, Safety + Utilization.
Scroll down to access free resources and discover how Industry 4.0 technology can enable you to improve total effective equipment performance, efficiency, maintenance, and utilization - in real-time.
Industry 4.0 technology enables the mining sector to implement real-time plant monitoring, enhance performance + safety, and add all-new predictive abilities.
Across many industries the utilization, efficiency and the lifespan of plant, machinery and equipment are critical measures which predicate productivity and profitability.
With vast fleets containing multiple asset classes spread over remote sites; the mining sector has a harder time than most when it comes to getting accurate real-time performance, maintenance, and utilization metrics of their machinery.
Not only this, the plant that the mining sector utilizes is often much more hazardous. Improper usage, catastrophic failures and a myriad of other potential causes make adverse interactions with it one of the leading contributors to injuries, fatalities and environmental harm.
Managing this is challenge enough, but we're now in a world of zero harm, zero carbon and zero waste; all of which are now strategic as well as operational imperatives for the mining sector that dramatically impacts its plant.
Miners need to do something new if they're to become carbon neutral, prove ESG credentials, as well as protect workers and maintain profits; and the ascent to 2050 dictates that companies need to take affirmative, extensive action with their plant now rather than relying on OEMs and hardware manufacturers to innovate in order to get them there.
Pivotal in achieving these strategic and operational goals will be the application of novel plant solutions that allow those in the boardroom and in the field to utilize Industry 4.0 technology, effortlessly. These technologies exist today and allow the mining sector to uncover all-new data-based insights hidden in large real-time data sets and then seize them before they are lost by leveraging the combined power of data, AI + IoT in a single platform.
Whilst challenging, there are huge advantages to be had with predictive analyses that can do much more than achieve the zero goals but deliver all-new ways of working and find efficiencies that increase profitability, utilization and much more. Read on to discover how Industry 4.0 can transform how you use your plant today.
