Get more from your equipment with Techenomics
While lower exhibitor numbers and falling attendance at the Asia-Pacific’s largest mining event, AIMEX 2015 in Sydney last week, are indicative of difficult times for the mining industry, it was very evident that more efficient production is the key to maintaining and developing business.
The innovations and technologies provided by Australian mining equipment, technology and services (METS) companies have a crucial role to play in achieving greater productivity and ensuring survival while the development of further markets outside Australia can provide these companies with growth opportunities.
Techenomics International is an example of a METS company utilising innovative methods to help equipment operators and miners operate more effectively and efficiently. Techenomics has also developed new, larger markets outside Australia and is active in this regard in Indonesia, Mongolia and elsewhere.
The company had two representatives at AIMEX who noted that many mines and METS companies are tapping into the industry’s tighter budget mindset by seeking productivity improvements and getting more from their existing equipment.
Techenomics CEO Chris Adsett believes the mining sector has become complacent during the very profitable years of the mining boom and is reacting strongly to the downturn by slashing expenditure on new items and seeking more efficiency from existing plant and equipment.
“Changing slowly was okay during the boom but those days are gone and the industry has to change fast now to survive, which means its players have to be willing to try new ways of doing things.”
Techenomics uses innovative technology, state-of-the-art equipment and professional, expert staff to carry out condition monitoring, fluid management and oil analysis services which enable operators to get the most from their equipment.
Chris Adsett says that throughout Techenomics’ global network it is assisting customers with trials to lower costs, improve productivity and reduce costly downtime by better filtration, improved lubricant additives and Big Data analysis using IBM predictive maintenance technologies.
“This total condition monitoring service is extremely cost-effective. It is backed and supported by our spread of regional laboratories and fully qualified chemists working to provide accurate and fast results.
“These results are then analysed to provide customers with accurate trends and advice so that they can take action to prevent problems before they impact productivity and revenue.”
