Mill mapping technology a winner

A WESTERN Australian-owned company delivering technology-based wear management solutions has won the WA Inventor of the Year 2007 for a revolutionary device that maps the inner workings of a grinding mill on a mine site.

A WESTERN Australian-owned company delivering technology-based wear management solutions has won the WA Inventor of the Year 2007 for a revolutionary device that maps the inner workings of a grinding mill on a mine site.

Scanalyse’s MillMapper uses a specially calibrated 3D laser scanner to collect superior data on grinding mill liners.

Liners have a relatively short life span and there is currently no way of monitoring their deterioration without shutting a mill down for extended periods.

The innovative technology will allow the capture of real-time data, which will help increase throughput levels and improve the knowledge of wear liner shapes.
