Event description
During this virtual forum, the industry will come together to define best practice and strategize for the future of asset management.

About this Event

With rising demands for resources, managing assets in the mine including equipment, technology, and the workforce has become a key factor in increasing productivity. Asset management incorporates all maintenance and reliability activities and strategies as well as all lifecycle management and financial aspects of assets as they relate to the overall organizational business strategy.

Effective asset management is of vital importance to the industry as mining is highly dependent on the state of its assets. Benefits of effective asset management include improved asset safety, improved capital productivity, improved decision making, optimized lifecycle costs, more effective risk management, higher levels of predictability, and reduced energy usage.

During this virtual forum, the industry will come together to define best practice and strategize for the future of asset management.

December 8th (9:00am-11:30am EST | 4:00pm-6:30pm CEST | 10:00pm-12:30am AWST)

Presentations:

How tire stock management and fitment strategy impact truck availability

Mark Goode, Director, Business Insights

Emma Tomini, Data Scientist at Natural Resources Canada / Government of Canada

It is standard practice for tire service providers in open pit mines to fit new tires to the front axle of haul trucks and to rotate them at a third life to the rear. This is done for three primary reasons; operator safety, used spare tire creation, and maximizing tire performance. While common practice, there is a gap in understanding the required level of spare inventory required to run this fitment strategy effectively across different fleet sizes and operational conditions. Additionally, tire fitment strategies are often run without consideration of the impact on equipment availability, instead purely looking to maximize tire performance. Kal Tire’s Mining Tire Group, a tire service provider operating on over 150 mine sites in 19 countries, partnered with Canada’s NRCan-CanMetMINING, a department of Natural Resources Canada to research the impact of rotation strategy on spare inventory levels and truck downtime. This research, presented here, and conducted using test data from an open pit mine in Canada, demonstrates a dynamic spare tire inventory model that showed promising results in optimizing capital tied up in spare tires and also reduced truck downtime for tire work over the year by almost 15%.

About Mark: Mark Goode is Kal Tire’s Business Insights Director and has worked the past 10 years for the mining division in West Africa and Canada in sales and operational roles. He is currently responsible of the Tire and Operational Management System (TOMS). His primary focus is to identify actionable business insights to help customers maximize haulage fleet productivity and tire performance.

About Emma: Emma Tomini is a data scientist with NRCan–CanmetMINING and works on implementing AI and data driven solutions for mining industry. Emma has a degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from Laurentian University, a Masters degree in Data Science and Analytics from Ryerson University and has worked on AI projects relating to predictive maintenance, energy management and value chain optimization.

Girth Gear Asset Management Strategies

William Quinn, Director of Engineering, Global PAM

Girth gears are critical assets on most mine sites, driving mills, kilns and dryers. Managing these assets properly is critical to avoid tail risk high impact downtime. A basic structure for managing girth gears is presented through the typical lifecycle, with an emphasis on an RCM approach to maintenance. Typical girth gear failure modes are reviewed along with how they can be prevented, and detected. A detailed example of proper management of a cracked girth gear is presented, showcasing the strategy.

About William: Quinn has over 10 years experience working with some of the world’s largest ball/AG/SAG mill drives, and kiln/dryer transmissions driven by gears over 40 feet in diameter. His background includes mill and kiln gear engineering and design at Falk (Rexnord) and the past 5 years inspection, consulting and overseeing installation of in-service equipment.
