With terms like "The Digital Mine" and "Mining 4.0", confusion abounds over what it means to have a truly modern, digitized mining operation.
In this webinar, we look specifically at the role asset health monitoring (i.e., condition monitoring) plays in improving reliability and profitability of today's mining operations through better, data-driven decisions. These capabilities can be deployed for all mechanical assets across the operation whether in the process plant or mobile equipment such as haul trucks and locomotives.
Baker Hughes' industry principal Ashleigh Collins brings more than 12 years of hands-on mining experience to the table, showing the relevance of condition monitoring to assets in every part of your operations.
Product application expert, Chris Engdahl, will provide deep dives into four specific applications, showing exactly how certain assets are monitored along with the types of problems that can be addressed and the corresponding return on investment that can be expected.
A brief overview of the company's System 1 software is also provided, showing how the diversity of condition monitoring hardware needed to address different assets can all be unified into a common software environment, providing a single, intuitive dashboard into asset conditions across the entire mine.
