    Mining process operations are becoming more complex. The decline of mineral grades, strict regulations and today’s economic landscape require mining companies to optimize their operations, processes and use fewer consumables (from energy to reagents) to become more cost effective. The global mining industry needs new, intelligent and easy-to-use optimization and process control tools. Our process control solutions provide simple and seamless integration of mining and mineral processing automation. They help align business objectives with requirements across operations and the entire plant.

    Process Automation & Control

    Automation in the processing and refining of minerals is highly complex. Managing multiple processes and machines requires a multitude of controllers and field devices in a highly distributed configuration.
