Headquartered in Chile, Codelco explores, develops, extracts and processes mineral resources that are converted into refined copper and by-products. The Radomiro Tomic Mine in Calama, Chile produces high grades of copper sold on the global market. The client had previously installed an automated copper cathode sorting machine system with little success.
Industry 4.0: Increasing throughput in manufacturing using integrated technology
Based in the US, our client is a leading North American specialty paint manufacturer. In 2020, our client was in the process of conducting a broad review of their production processes across a number of plants. In conjunction with that review, they were looking to get a clearer understanding of a specific batch manufacturing process in terms of throughput, speed, and capacity.
