What does digital transformation mean for mining and metal companies?
Advances in digital technology, and the falling prices thereof, are now offering miners and metal producers significant advantages. Especially when it comes to even the oldest production processes and the longest standing production challenges. More affordable and, crucially, smaller sensing equipment allows producers to retro-fit older equipment with the new sensing hardware.
In the meantime, more advanced software networks with total connectivity between various systems allows one to leverage existing automation and control systems. This offer new ways of approaching asset lifecycle and maintenance, productivity, and energy optimization.
