Large Mining Company Implements Eka Control Systems and Eka QMS to Improve Throughput
Large mining companies are continually looking for efficiency improvements in physical stacking and reclaiming materials at their various mine and port sites. Increasing reclaim rates by even half a percent provides tremendous benefits, including increased production revenues and profits. Quality tracking and planning also increase throughput.
Eka’s suite of solutions have helped increase the usable capacity of the site and eliminated operator error through automated decision making and execution. Eka’s solutions have also increased predictability of contract delivery.
Productivity has improved since the solution enables machines to work more closely and remain safe and reduces the amount of downtime between operations. Additionally, it has reduced air digging time of reclaimers.
The company has increased profits by mixing ore more precisely, meeting customer specifications more exactly. Using simulations to predict and optimize outcomes, the solution models the ore refinement processes to determine what ore goes where and how ore blends through the movement process.
