Jsg Industrial Systems: Engineering Next-Generation Fire Suppression Industrial Systems

Top 10 Mining Tech Solution Companies In APAC - 2021

Reflecting the growing significance of climate change, reducing carbon footprint and accelerating the journey to the all-electric mine is a business priority that is driving mining companies and their customers alike today. Rapid advances in technological innovation, including automation, digitization, and electrification, are fundamentally aiding the mining sector on this front. Concurrently, the switch to remote services in response to the pandemic has accelerated the adoption of Industry 4.0 solutions in mining companies that automate operations for optimized productivity, reduce equipment downtime and costs, predict rather than preventative maintenance, and enhance safety for mining personnel. A few technologies reshaping the sector include autonomous vehicles, automated drilling and tunnel-boring systems, drones, and smart sensors.

Today, underground drones are being used as mine scouts, flying through mines to search caves, collect data, and aid in mapping. They’ve proved highly effective at recording gas levels, identifying geological features, and taping high-quality visuals of the caves, eliminating the need to send human surveyors. After excavation, there are multiple risks in a confidential setting like potential collapse, inaccessible areas, and no light. By sending drones into unfamiliar areas, workers are kept safe from such possible hazards as well.

In addition, the more automated a mine is, the easier it is to collect data. That data includes everything from mine conditions to inventory to fleet maintenance needs. As more and more mines add automated machines to their process, more data will be collected, leading to improved analysis, operating efficiency, and safety. The majority of the mining software available compiles and sorts data, storing it for easy access even remotely. With software like that in place, equipment operators and management can track how much material is used and, if needed, have repairs to avoid costly downtimes.

At this juncture, there is a variety of mining tech solution providers entering the market to cater to the different needs of enterprises. To help them choose the service that best fits their requirement, Metals and Mining Review has compiled a list of the most promising mining tech solution providers in the APAC region. Besides, the magazine also comprises insights from thought leaders in the sector on the industry trends, best practices, recent innovations, and their advice for aspiring CIOs.
