When it comes to mining, digitalisation is more than just the latest buzz word. Market pressures are driving mining operators to use the latest digital technologies to improve operational efficiencies, maximise yield recoveries, meet regulatory requirements and maintain safe environments.

When a global pandemic adds to this complexity, the power of digitalisation is even more amplified. Digitalisation can give mining operations the competitive edge they need to thrive in today’s mining industry. “Australian miners have been on the forefront of the innovation curve as a result of deployment costs to remote sites and the high costs of labour. This has by default, uniquely positioned Australian miners in respect to Covid-19,” said Kevin Cole, industry sales manager & OEM sales manager, Rockwell Automation.

Rockwell Automation will be presenting and exhibiting at the upcoming Austmine 2021, Mining Innovation Conference & Exhibition in Perth this month. This conference has a reputation as the go-to event for mining leaders to connect around strategic priorities, key innovations and emerging technologies driving a sustainable industry future.

The event will provide a valuable and sought-after opportunity for the mining and METS sector to share ideas and industry best practice. Javier Orellana, manager digital Asia Pacific, Rockwell Automation will deliver a presentation titled ‘Using Augmented Reality to Significantly Increase Throughput’ at Austmine 2021. Javier will share his deep knowledge of technology and data integration and management, helping provide businesses the capability to better leverage digital systems to deliver tangible business value.

Visit the Rockwell Automation stand at Austmine to see augmented and virtual reality technologies in action. Featuring a virtual Ball Mill and Mining Truck augmented reality (AR) demonstrations, these demos highlight mine-to-market visibility by ensuring connectivity to devices, applications and multiple data sources across mining assets.

FactoryTalk InnovationSuite, powered by PTC, improves connectivity to operational technology devices on the mine site, natively supporting the rapid, scalable, and secure connection of the most commonly used industrial equipment. Combined with data from information technology (IT) applications and systems, decision makers can now gain a complete digital representation of their industrial equipment, lines and facilities from anywhere in the enterprise.

See how integrated systems and scalable analytics can enable mine-to-market visibility and allow for better decision-making. By collecting, aggregating and analysing data across your operations, you can identify trends and interdependencies that may be missed when data lives in silos.

Austmine 2021 follows a landmark 2019 event that attracted over 1200 mining and METS leaders from over 20 countries. This year’s event, with its key focus on harnessing information will identify new and innovative digital technologies and solutions to address today’s industry challenges.
