From smart mining to portable crushing from Weir at Electra Mining Africa

At this year’s Electra Mining Africa exhibition, visitors will be attracted to the Weir stand by innovations such as the Weir Modular Wheeled Plant (WMWP), a fully mobile crushing and screening plant, as well as the latest in the company’s cutting edge digital solutions for smart mining.

Supporting customers to mine for a more sustainable future, Weir will showcase not only its leading range of equipment and solutions, but the digital technology to further optimise its performance and reliability.

“Our exciting Motion Metrics mine operation monitoring systems will be one of the main features at the show,” says Mufaro Muzvondiwa, Process and Products Director at Weir. “These systems provide mines with real-time particle size analysis of material carried on shovels, loaders, conveyor belts and haul trucks – helping to avoid blockages at the crushing stage and optimise the mine-to- mill value chain.”

Using stereoscopic vision combined with artificial intelligence (AI), Motion Metrics™ cameras leverage machine learning to enhance its predictive capabilities and provide actionable insights to customers, says Muzvondiwa.
