Innovation in the copper industry

On 18 November 2021, an interdisciplinary scientific conference entitled: “Innovation in the copper industry” was held, organized by Jan Wyżykowski University and Centrum Badań Jakości sp. z. o.o. The theme of the conference concerned the presentation of research and project work related to the development of the copper industry. During the event, Professor Radosław Zimroz in his presentation “Interdisciplinary research and technology development at the GGG PWR Department for sustainable use of raw materials on the example of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A.”, presented innovative solutions from the project: OPMO, AMICOS, and SafeMe4Mine.

Visit at the School of Underground Exploitation conference

The 30th edition of the School of Underground Exploitation (Szkoła Eksploatacji Podziemnej) conference took place in Krakow from 27 to 29 September. DMC team joined other scientists, policy-makers, representatives of mining companies, and technology providers from Poland and abroad to present the effects of the most recent work performed in the scope of EIT Raw Materials projects. The main theme of the event was “Transformation of hard coal mining”, and the catchword “Mining will always be … but differently” could be repeatedly heard during the individual session panels, nonetheless the multitude of sessions’ topics ranged from the education of future raw materials industry workforce to IT solutions enhancing production processes in mining.

Lower-Silesian Festival of Knowledge with DMC

And once again DMC organised a worshop on digitisation and robotics in mining for university-, school-students, and others interested in innovations in the raw materials sector. For three days Adam Wróblewski and I (Mateusz Góralczyk) held virtual meetings to tell our visitors what is happening in our labs, how digital transformation of raw materials industry progresses, what robots, drones, IoT and cloud computing has to do with mining – all in the form of case-studies from AMICOS, SafeMe4Mine, OPMO, MEITIM, and MOIRA.

Some of the fascinating topics undertaken during our meetings were: how smart apps will help inspectors to ensure productivity and safety in open-pit, and underground mines, how a 3D model of a belt conveyor or an underground corridor can be created with the help of a drone carrying a digital camera or LIDAR, how we can use remotely controlled robots to identify damages of mechanical components, or to find a human in case of emergency.

DMC team-members on the first “International Workshop on MOdelling and Simulation of COmplex Systems for Sustainable Energy Efficiency”

Dr. Pavlo Krot and Dr. Jacek Wodecki presented their research achievements at the MOSCOSSE’2021 workshop organized by The Laboratory of Mechanics, Modelling and Production (LA2MP) from the University of Sfax, Tunisia, and the Department of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering, Centre of Asset Integrity Management (C-AIM) from University of Pretoria, South Africa.

It was a pleasure to see our colleagues presenting case studies and findings in such fields of complex systems studies related to three of our projects (MaMMa, OPMO, and SafeMe4Mine) as:

  • On-line dynamical analysis of the driveline regimes to be used as a part of mill control or a separate monitoring system,
  • developing remedies against torsional vibrations and cobbles in high-speed wire rod rolling mills based on dynamical models to improve product geometry and equipment durability,
  • Separation of fault-related impulsive components from vibration signal.

We have all broadened our horizons and learned some new valuable things thanks to the exchange of knowledge with a very interdisciplinary and skilled group of workshop participants. Thank you!

Towards Sustainable Mining in the Didactic Process—MEITIM Project as an Opportunity to Increase the Attractiveness of Mining Courses (A Case Study of Poland) Journal Article

In: Sustainability, vol. 12, no. 23, 2020.

Abstract | Links

This article depicts the initial assumptions of the international project Master in Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Technology Integration in Mining (MEITIM), co-financed by EIT Raw Materials, that aims to diagnose the current state of Polish higher education in the field of mining at, among others, the Wroclaw University of Science and Technology (WUST), concerning the experience of the Technical University of Madrid (UPM) and Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT). The MEITIM project allowed for identifying the directions of necessary changes in the didactic process so as to provide an indispensable set of skills and knowledge for a future mining graduate.

New article in Engineering Failure Analysis

We are not slowing down! Another article by Dr Pavlo Krot, and Prof. Radosław Zimroz has been recently published in Engineering Failure Analysis journal. It presents the results of abrupt failure investigation in the structure of industrial plant for hydrostatic pressure testing tubes.

The authors proposed two options of plant modernization to reinforce the structure for safe work under pressure from 70 MPa to 125 MPa depending on the tube size and testing conditions. Such improvements have a significant potential for increasing the testing plant’s productivity.

The work presented in these papers has been funded by the SAFEME4MINE project. Full citations can be found below.
