Created by olegkirov Sep 24, 2020

Digitization in the mining and metals industries has the potential to deliver over $425 billion in shareholder, customer, and environmental value by 2025, according to a 2017 report by the World Economic Forum. However, cashing in on this digitalization opportunity requires industrial automation strategic planning, strong industrial partnerships, and appropriate selection and deployment of Mine Digitization technologies.

We at Sum of the Technologies, an experienced mining and metals industrial automation systems integrator serving the market in and around Russia, and recent winner of the Schneider Electric 2020 Alliance Partner Award, are in a strong position to help our customers develop their digitization plans.

For instance, many customers ask us about appropriate solutions for data acquisition and analysis and how to bring their manufacturing execution systems (MES) up-to-date. They prefer field-tested, proven solutions which is why we often recommend AVEVA Wonderware and Schneider Electric products and solutions, which are widely recognized as offering the best portfolio of solutions in many segments, including Mining and Metals segments.

The mining and metal industries is an extremely important market for Sum of the Technologies because, across Russia. and some of the former Soviet republics such as Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, and Kazakhstan, mining is a growing industry as gold, copper, platinum, and nickel are all in large demand. Nickel, for instance, serves as a critical element in the manufacturing of electric car batteries. While extracting and processing these important metals, our customers seek help to lower their carbon emissions footprint, to improve worker safety, and to drive operational efficiency of manufacturing operations through digitization.
