Safety is a vital priority to the mining industry. While technologies like automation and remote operation centres have progressed safety exponentially, best practices for implementation and operational planning are still in development. The high cost of new equipment leaves no room for a trial and error process. This is the strength of the digital twin. By running a digital simulation, potential errors and malfunctions can be determined, safety can be properly evaluated, and risks can be mitigated, prior to implementation and throughout the asset life cycle.
This event will focus on how the digital twin can be used in mining to build a safer, more technologically advanced future for our industry.
How engineers and geologists are using digital twin technology.
