The Wear Management module found its roots tracking conveyor belt wear. The software now tracks hundreds of kilometres of belt across Australia with most all of the major mining companies. Accurate forecasting as well as the ability to intervene on poor performing belts sees great financial benefit to our clients.
The capability of the Wear Management module has now been extended to any wearing part with implementation already in chute liners in hard rock operations, crushers and steel wheels.
We are in an exciting position with this product currently as new applications are frequently emerging allowing sites to better manage critical wearing parts.
Having accurate wear data can highlight operational issues that can be resolved to allow longer wear life extending the gap between required shutdown for rectification. It can also allow more accurate forecasting of change out times and procurement. With an increasing pressure on uptime capability, this allows sites to make educated decisions on operation.
