Sandvik Rock Processing Solutions challenge

Sandvik rock processing industrial process insights – a revolution in efficiency and sustainability

Business area Sandvik Rock Processing Solutions is a leading supplier of equipment, tools, parts, services and solutions for processing rock and minerals in the mining and infrastructure industries. Applications include crushing, screening, breaking and demolition.

The focus lies on bringing value to customers through high-performing products that increase productivity and safety, as well as providing services and flexible maintenance programs that extend uptime and reduce costs.

A growing part of the Business Area's offering is targeted towards more energy-efficient comminution, processes, and technologies, together with increased data sets to meet future customer requirements. This contributes directly to the industry’s target of sustainable comminution, protecting the environment and reducing operating costs.

The challenge to solve

We want to evolve our individual equipment insights to drive plant level efficiency and sustainability improvements.

Today, we monitor and provide insights on individual equipment availability and efficiency, but we do not capture the Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE) or how the different machines depend on each other.

OEE = Availability * Efficiency * Quality

Our customers would like to have increased transparency of their plant and equipment operations, and know how they can improve the OEE of their crushing and screening production processes. With these insights, they can significantly reduce their sustainability footprint, improve the guidance provided to operators and meet their production targets more efficiently and effectively.

We are looking to capture the full potential of the production process.
We need to monitor and collect insights on the material flow between machines, enabling us to gain a better understanding of how the equipment operates and provide recommendations on their overall performance.

We also have a future vision that our different equipment will be able to communicate setting adjustments between themselves to improve the overall process efficiency or reliability, depending on operator demands.
