Upcoming Forum on mining sensors and processes

Endress+Hauser will host two Australian Mining Automation Forums late February 2008 in Brisbane and Perth, focusing on sensing technology for grinding and milling, wet processing, leaching and tailings separation.

The forum will be an opportunity for the Swiss-based company to seek input and suggestions for developing mining automation products, with the participation of a high-level international and Australian mining industry management team.

E+H have a history of customer-led development. When they asked their mining customers about the major process problems they faced, high on their priority list was the ability to accurately and reliably monitor the “bed level” and “bed mass” in the tailings thickening process – and in the other thickening processes, because if these could be measured, the efficiency of the thickeners could be improved. In response, Endress+Hauser engineers developed a new, heavy-duty buoyancy electromechanical system called the FMM50.

In May 2007, Endress+Hauser hosted similar forums overseas and the experiences from Canada and South Africa will be reviewed. Participants will be offered a look at several new Endress+Hauser product developments. The event will also focus on cost optimisation -the driving force behind automation-, and “Right Tech” will feature prominently on the agenda.

These Forums will be open to all companies involved in mining automation in Australia.

The venues and dates are:

22 February 2008

Brisbane Technology Park Conference Centre

29 February 2008

Perth Convention Centre
