Senseye Predictive Maintenance in the Metals & Mining industry

Although the equipment used by companies in the Metals and Mining sectors is built to work in the harshest environments, assets still break down unexpectedly. And their regular maintenance can be a significant cost item, often compounded by the remoteness and harshness of the locations where they operate. The situation is made more difficult by an ever-more competitive global market in which operators are required to improve the efficiency of their equipment while keeping costs down.

Assets are becoming increasingly digital, however, and the process equipment used to control them collects more data than ever before. This provides a rich source of additional information for automated condition monitoring purposes, often without the need for any additional sensors to be installed. Cost efficiencies and optimization opportunities can be unlocked by mining this rich information with a proven, scalable, and trusted predictive maintenance system – Senseye PdM.

Senseye works with some of the largest  Metals & Mining industrial companies, including:
