Faster, smarter, smaller: Digital technologies push new frontier for metals industry
Advances in digital technology, and the falling prices thereof, are now offering miners and metal producers significant advantages when it comes to even the oldest production processes and the longest standing production challenges. More affordable and, crucially, smaller sensing equipment allows producers to retro-fit older equipment with the new sensing hardware, while more advanced software networks with total connectivity between various systems allows one to leverage existing automation and control systems to offer new ways of approaching asset lifecycle and maintenance, productivity, and energy optimisation.

Discover How Steelmakers Can Meet the Global Demand for Better Structural Steels
Economies, national securities, and cultures rely on safe, trustworthy infrastructures, which are being threatened by seismic, fire, and extreme-weather events. As a result, the global demand for better structural materials has intensified.
Find out in this industry white paper from CBMM North America, Inc.: How niobium enables steelmakers to benefit from this growing opportunity, how low-cost, niobium-containing steel provides structural materials with improved energy absorption, fracture toughness, and fatigue properties and why low carbon, Nb-microalloyed steel lowers overall production costs.
