Technologies that increase the availability of geological resources, efficiently and effectively to increase the success rate of companies.
Advanced sensors with connectivity that allow to increase the efficiency of the processes and reduce the direct intervention of operators to improve safety and auditability.
Technologies that reduce the environmental impact generated by the mining industry throughout its value chain.
Innovations that develop more effective human / machine interfaces and systems that allow remote presence, augmented reality and situational awareness.
Applied to unitary processes that are part of the mining value chain.
The Open Innovation in Mining program, Expande, executed by Fundación Chile and the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) in conjunction with METS Ignited, joined forces to launch the Technology Exchange Program for startups and / or supplier companies of the mining industry METStech Passport, the first alliance of its kind between Australia and Chile.
The program seeks to generate cross-pollination through the exchange of ideas, synergies of industry challenges and collaboration between two innovation mining platforms, EXPANDE and METS Ignited.
In the second semester of 2018, selected startups and / or supplier companies with internationalization potential will be able to access mentoring, workshops, networking events and institutional support to facilitate softlanding in the Australian market for two weeks.
The OTR tire (Off-the-Road tire), is a highly necessary supply for the operation of any load vehicle and plays an enabling role in ore transportation within the extraction process. The […]Ir
As mining projects increase their operation time and growth, they are subject to changes in their form and structure, which, despite having been considered in their designs and construction, need to be monitored and modeled with precision to avoid catastrophic situations.Ir
Breakdown voltages and energy leaks are common in EW tankhouses in copper operations. Its monitoring is manual, costly and slow. TESRA adapted existing technology to develop an automatic thermal control […]Ir
The efficiency of a metallurgic process depends, to a large extent, of the adequate and timely operational decision making in light of the variability of the physical and chemical quality […]Ir
The climatic conditions and high altitude present in Chilean mining, damage heavy-duty haul truck engines, eroding their components and reducing their lifecycle.Ir
The Trommel is a classification system per size of ore coming from the mills. It downstream allows passing of the ore complying with required grading and returns the one requiring […]Ir
Water plays a significant role in copper production. It mainly participates in the concentration, hydrometallurgical, foundry and refinery processes.Ir
Labour productivity in the mining industry dropped 20% in comparison with 2000, in Chile and internationally, as stated by the Chilean Copper Commission (Cochilco) in 2014. This is an important […]Ir
