METS Tech Talk: Modern Materials Handling – Transforming Traditional Operations

Receive the latest insights on emerging materials handling practices, processes and technologies.

Typically, materials handling isn’t viewed as one of the most innovative areas of mining. At its simplest form, it is transferring materials from one place to another. However, for modern mining operations, materials handling represents one of the largest capital and operating costs, and therefore, processes must be optimised.

While digital is disrupting materials handling operations, there have also been several practical, state-of-the-art advancements in design and maintenance of equipment. These are driving increased performance and creating a reliable, streamlined mining value chain.

The Tech Talks will explore:

  • Simulating and predicting streamlined materials handling operations

  • Advancements in conveyor design and components

  • Preventative and predictive maintenance of fixed and mobile equipment


Maximise resource recovery

Mark Roberts, Group Product Manager, Maptek

Once upon a time, mining success was measured by how much material could be moved - tonnes excavated, processed and shipped. Today, a smart approach continuously integrates data across every stage from resource model through to plant beneficiation. Analysing the data in the context of the whole operation and acting on that information is the key to maximising mineral recovery.

Maptek Group Product Manager for Mine Operations, Mark Roberts will outline the benefits of a continuous material resource tracking solution that optimises mines from in-ground resource to balance-sheet profit.


Benefits of Innovative Improvements in Apron Feeders

Gary Day, Technical Support Manager – Bulk Materials Handling, Asia Pacific , Metso

Consideration of operability and maintainability needs constant review for innovative improvements. This discussion addresses Apron Feeders through the maintainability concerns that arise within downtime, such as planned and non-planned shutdowns.  We discuss improvements that can be achieved in safety and changeout time reductions through an Innovative thought process.  This will be illustrated by a case study.


Flexco® CoreTech™ Rollers

Mark Anderson, Engineering Design Manager, Flexco

Learn about the benefits of Flexco® CoreTech™ rollers and how they can help your site boost conveyor belt system productivity.
