IoT.nxt provides a Smart Mining Solution
With the expansion of underground mining, along with an increase in downhole mining operations, the versatile adoption of industry 4.0 technologies becomes difficult. Integrating sensors for comprehensive monitoring of the mining plant improves its productivity. Therefore, to facilitate scalability and improve productivity, mining startups utilize Internet of Things (IoT)-based solutions to optimize quality management.
US-based startup IoT.nxt provides process quality management in the mining industry through an IoT-based smart solution. The startup’s product enables the management of variance and discrepancies in operations along with interconnectivity and interoperability between various production processes. Besides, the solution optimizes plant performance through predictive maintenance capabilities. It also provides mining plant managers with real-time comprehensive reports of all mining operations at a single platform facilitating quality management.
Buildcode enables Construction Quality Assessment
The construction industry faces many challenges of quality monitoring and management. It is generally difficult for site managers to keep a tab on the activities and to visit the entire area under construction on a regular basis. Therefore, startups are developing solutions for quality assessment and monitoring of construction sites using 3D scanning and drone technologies.
Danish startup Buildcode offers construction optimization and quality assurance through the integration of drone technology. The startup’s solution, Sitemotion, connects drones with the 3D model of the building along with the planning data. This enables building experts to record, inspect and capture pictures for quality assurance purposes. Moreover, the solution uses 3D scanners in conjunction with drones to obtain in-depth data about the gravel pit for extraction of sand and provides an overview and history of the area under construction.
Spectral Industries facilitates Mineral Composition and Quality Assessment
Atomic chemical composition testing of minerals in mining requires careful sample preparation. The process is lengthy and there are possibilities of non-identification of hazardous minerals which leads to adverse health implications. Therefore, to minimize the time taken for composition testing, startups are developing real-time inline atomic analysis solutions for application in mining and mineral industries.
Dutch startup Spectral Industries provides sensor-based quality monitoring and mineral composition determination systems for application in the mining industry. The startup’s solution SPECTRAL Conveyor Belt LIBS Sensor measures the complete atomic chemical composition of the material passing by on the belt. The system positioned over the conveyor belt enables atomic-level quality monitoring and analysis of the ore grade in the mined material to separate ore from waste material. Moreover, the system facilitates material identification for recycling.
Sensemore builds a Condition Monitoring Solution
Downtimes faced by the automotive producers due to problems with machinery increase the cost and slows down the entire supply chain. With huge machinery structures, it becomes difficult to monitor the machine’s condition. Therefore, startups are developing IoT-based condition monitoring solutions for the quality management of machines in the automotive sector.
Turkish startup Sensemore provides machinery and equipment quality control through condition monitoring in the automotive sector. The startup’s solution detects faults in the machine or equipment by observing parameters such as vibration, temperature, and current. The solution integrates IIoT sensors with the machines and equipment enabling continuous quality monitoring and arranges predictive maintenance of the machines. This helps automotive manufacturers to streamline quality control in machine maintenance and increase production efficiency.
Riven works on 3D Scanning
Traditional metallurgy faces challenges in the quality control of highly complex geometric structures. The current practice of manual inspection of the manufactured components is insufficient due to advancements in the designs of sintered metal parts. Therefore, to implement quality control measures in the manufacturing process, startups are developing 3D scanning-based solutions.
US-based startup Riven provides quality control for metal parts manufacturing using 3D scanning. The startup’s digital solution is integrable with the production line and consists of a 3D scanner, automatic measurement software, and a cloud platform for real-time data sharing across the supply chain. The solution integrated with the production line scans the components and compares them to computer-aided design (CAD) with data logging. This helps manufacturers to diagnose the deformation in components and implement quality control measures efficiently.
