The “smart” quarry
Over the last few years, quarry-development strategieshavebeen remarkablysped up by new technology,though it is a traditional industry in which innovation takes longerto arrive and set in.
Technological convergence between communication, computing, management systems and decision-making processes has spread, it has got faster, more open and accomplished, in any industry. The stone industry is one of those in which there’s a lot of room for improvement and for bringing in the new.
A quarry is a real world, a world made of rocks, machines and men, driven by a combination of scientific andtacit knowledge. The work processesmay be based on KPIs and on the measurement of all indicators bymany different kinds of sensors. This generates a universe of Big Data that can be objectively analysed. Such information is essential for a modern quarry-development strategy.
We are constantly engaged in research, in the attempt to create a virtual world as a model of the previous one, for a safer, more effective and efficient management of the quarry.
That’s why we have gone through a journey of growth and research in our technology and skills, to turn the ‘smart’, connected, digital quarry into reality.
