Metals and Mining

Balance time, price, sustainability and quality pressures with simulation

Learn more about the Metals and Mining industry

Mining is an increasingly technology-driven industry, continually demanding significant improvements in processes and equipment, while also creating a new generation of mining practices focused on safety, automation, energy efficiency, environmental stewardship, and cost management. The use of engineering simulation in the metals industry has proven to be instrumental in helping metal producers and equipment manufacturers balance time, price, sustainability, and quality pressures.

In this industry engineers are constantly challenged to optimize exploration, drilling and extraction processes and generate improvements in the contributions of low-yield mines and secondary processes.

Engineering simulation for the metal and mining industries helps companies worldwide to develop, verify, and implement new specialized technologies related to process innovation, operational efficiency, best practices, safety, and sustainable development.
