Webinar: How to reduce downtime with digital twins and predictive maintenance in industrial gear units

Plant operators are constantly being challenged to minimise costly system downtime by being able to accurately predict the future performance of their operating equipment. This is made possible with a comprehensive predictive maintenance solution from SEW–EURODRIVE. Read more

How to implement remote condition monitoring effectively with minimal cost

This webinar includes expert presentations on a condition monitoring solution from Schaeffler called OPTIME.

In this webinar you will learn how:

  • OPTIME can alleviate many of the pain points associated with machine reliability and performance through cost-effective remote condition monitoring.
  • How it works with a demonstration of the dashboard
  • The benefits realised from OPTIME through real case study examples

Webinar: Autonomous systems, from idea to operation

Join Insight for a virtual event and hear how autonomous systems are being leveraged in the mining sector, from idea to operation, on Wednesday March 24 at 12-1:15pm AEDT.

Industrial control systems form the backbone of Mining and resources businesses, but existing systems have limitations.

The Australian mining sector is going through one of the most intense periods of change we have ever seen. The ability for innovation – to evolve, adapt and improve operations – is indispensable.

Autonomous control systems adjust in real time to changes in their operational environments or inputs optimising towards multiple goals.

Hear from Microsoft, MathWorks and Insight, which will be sharing their experience in enabling autonomous systems to achieve superior operational value.

This is a unique opportunity to hear from the field, lessons learnt on how to approach Deep Reinforcement Learning (DRL) and using advanced simulation software and cloud-scale compute to simulate in the real world, to bring it altogether from idea to operation.

12:00pm – Welcome and Introduction
12:05pm – Opportunity of Industrial Deep Reinforcement Learning & the Microsoft Vision
12:15pm – Simulating the real world to enable Machine Teaching
12:25pm – Bringing it altogether end-to-end, from idea to operation
12:45pm – Lessons from the field in crusher optimisation
1:00pm – ‘Future is now’ Panel discussion & live Q&A
1:15pm – Webinar closes

Webinar: Reinventing mining operations for the post-COVID-19 era


The COVID-19 pandemic has strongly affected commodity markets, while restrictions imposed by governments and social distancing rules have forced mining companies to redesign staff rosters, slow down production or put their operations on hold.

Once the corona-crisis is over, mining operators will have to reinvent themselves and adopt new ways of working. In the ‘new normal’, productivity, efficiency and worker health and safety will be more important than ever.

Over the past years mining operators have started engaging in digital transformation projects, and – as part of effective response to the pandemic – we can only expect these initiatives to accelerate.

The automation of critical processes will be vital to increase operational efficiency and mine productivity. Remote controlled and autonomous vehicles and machinery will ensure business continuity. Wearable digital PPE, geo-tracking and mission-critical PTT/PTV services will help keeping people, machines and vehicles at a safe distance from each other – above and underground.

Join our virtual event on June 3 to learn how Nokia, Sandvik and ACMA are responding to the COVID-19 crisis and how digital technologies, industrial-grade private wireless networks and innovative new use cases will help the Australian mining industry to reinvent itself.

Speakers and panelists:

  • Ben Creagh, managing editor, Australian Mining
  • Gary Conway, head of mining, Nokia
  • Ville Svensberg, business line manager for digitalisation, Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology
  • David Goggin, senior spectrum engineer, ACMA

How mining can take advantage of powerful data analysis tools and techniques

The mining industry has been collecting and storing process data for long time, but are now focusing on leveraging this data to drive business insight.

Digitalisation and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is enabling mining companies to extract more contextualised information across their business and operation, breaking down silos through the integration of systems and collaborations between business units and their teams.

This approach, sometimes referred to as digital transformation, is empowering companies to take full advantage of powerful data analysis tools and techniques.

Descriptive, predictive and prescriptive analytics are now common terms used by the industry and the application of these methods is delivering tangible value back to mining companies.

So where are we now? The industry is now focused on the application these methods holistically across the enterprise, this presentation will overview industry trends and how companies like AVEVA are delivering enabling technologies to support our customers digital transformation.
