By using a Microsoft Azure-based IoT solution to make good use of data and push AI workloads to the edge, Newcrest is optimising operational performance and enabling predictive maintenance. The solution currently predicts the level of ore in the bins, mitigates sensor failure and reduces downtime.
- Hydraulics, the unknown killer: proper training is the key to reducing injuries and fatalities
Hydraulic systems exist in almost every aspect of our everyday lives. This simple system consisting of pistons and oil-filled pipe is capable of generating tremendous amount of force; enough to cause permanent disabilities or even death of a person when an accident occurs. As hydraulic machinery degrades over time, they should be properly maintained to … Continue reading Hydraulics, the unknown killer: proper training is the key to reducing injuries and fatalities
- Newcrest Case Study Mining firm uses digital IoT and data science to cut downtime, reduce costs
One persistent challenge for Newcrest, which operates gold and copper mines in Australia, has been working to overcome is how to maintain peak production by keeping its ore crushers and other machines running continuously, with no unplanned downtime. One key to achieving that level of production is the crushed ore bin, which sits downstream from … Continue reading Newcrest Case Study Mining firm uses digital IoT and data science to cut downtime, reduce costs

- HDPE eclipses steel
High-density polyethylene (HDPE) is a thermoplastic polymer produced from monomer ethylene. Conveyor guards made out of HDPE are revolutionising the bulk handling industry, especially in the mining sector, because traditional steel mesh conveyor guards cannot match their superior safety, convenience and lower maintenance cost benefits. The future looks bright for this safer, lighter, more environmentally … Continue reading HDPE eclipses steel
