With ore grades declining, plus added pressures such as rising energy costs and water restrictions, it is increasingly difficult for mining companies to fulfil customer demand by delivering material on time, in the right quantity, and to the defined quality. To address this, Siemens and MineSense have formed an exclusive cooperation on the real-time measurement of ore grade and ore characteristics for conveyors. By combining each party’s strengths, the resulting joint solution will, for the first time, provide real-time measurement of ore grades and by-products by MineSense’s BeltSense in combination with a single material and quality management system, Siemens Simine MAQ. This new and comprehensive approach will enable customers to significantly increase efficiency via a single view of quality across the whole conveying process.
