Scott specialises in the design and manufacture of automated production, robotics and process machinery. Our equipment improves productivity, reliability, yield and safety for mining companies around the world.
Since the installation of our first automated sample preparation system in 2000, we have increasingly integrated robotics into our mining products and systems. Recent developments such as our automated refuelling system Robofuel have provided significant boosts to productivity, efficiency and safety as the mining industry moves towards automation.
Many of our Rocklabs Sample Preparation Equipment is utilised in our automated systems, such as our Roboprep systems, Sampling Stations and most recently, a fully automated iron ore laboratory.
Mining is currently seeing the start of what will be the great convergence of IT and operational technologies. Many observers have touted it as the foundation for the industry’s next technological step change, which will be focused on an effort to facilitate productivity gains, efficiency, and safety.
