They were able to customize their package to give us the true value engineering that we needed. This deviated from the more typical engineering firms that asked us to check a bunch of boxes. EPCM listened to us better.

  • Revolutionizing a Chilean copper mine with high-tech heap leaching solutions
    Chile is home to the world’s largest supply of copper, but the process of extracting it can be time-consuming and dangerous for workers – a challenge EPCM tackled with high-tech solutions at one major mine. The key to success was re-visioning how the mine handles a process called “heap leaching irrigation.”
  • Safety and efficiency equal success in the Fourth Industrial Revolution
    “Industry 4.0” refers to combining the automation of traditional manufacturing and industrial practices with the power of leading-edge communications technology, the Internet, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. For the team here at EPCM, Industry 4.0 is much more than a buzzword; it denotes real, positive change for companies and their employees.

Excited to get going on our new project with @codelco_chile. Our @tecnologiascobra and EPCM Automation teams will be collaborating to integrate a new cathode repair line at the Radomiro Tomic division in Chile. The equipment will be designed, integrated, operated and maintained by COBRA and EPCM.

At this aging Chilean mine, we applied our high-tech heap leaching solutions to propel it to the forefront of the industry. This included employing a robotic drone to take thermographic images to monitor and troubleshoot the heap leach process from above. 
 
Combined with data from the other advanced technologies we implemented at the mine, operators can now quickly identify the source of any problem and take immediate steps to fix it – dramatically improving safety and efficiency.

Codelco’s Chuquicamata site, the largest copper mine in the world, has contracted with @tecnologiascobra & The EPCM Group to perform maintenance, repairs, tuning and training with nine automation systems. This includes four Cathode Stripping Machines, three Anode Preparation Machines and two Anode Scrap Wash systems. As the older equipment requires more substantial upgrades or replacement, we’ll deliver with our industry-leading solutions. Learn more in the Resources section of our website, under News & Events.

Our automation team is excited about our new project with Royston Lead. We'll be building two lead anode weld cells to support production operations in Chile and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Our design weld cell applies technology proven in similar client applications, leveraging robot and cell automation technology, as well as weld head technology from @froniusinternational.

When the global pandemic prevented us from travelling to Peru last year to commission new equipment, we created a high-tech solution including the use of smart glasses. This allowed our team in Canada to "be on the ground" seeing what our client was seeing,  and provide expertise in real time. The project was so successful that real-time remote support is now a key part of our installations, start-ups and maintenance projects worldwide.
