“Knowing your ore characteristics from the mine and all the way through the processing plant is of increasing importance in mining as declining ore grades make it necessary to increase productivity by process optimisation,” explains Manfred Schaffer, President of Mining at FLSmidth.
“We see a strong match between some of our digital initiatives in FLSmidth and IMP’s automation solutions that will help you get better data on your ore and assist you in optimising processing. With this acquisition, our flowsheet of laboratory solutions within mining and minerals processing is complete, and this will be of great value to customers globally.”
The finalisation of the acquisition of IMP Automation by FLSmidth (the deal was first announced in February) means you can immediately benefit from a complete portfolio of IMP’s laboratory automation solutions in combination with FLSmidth’s global footprint and experience in automated sampling solutions.
We are well positioned to create cutting-edge, competitive solutions for mining applications. The benefits of the joint portfolio are immediately available to all our customers, and the pipeline is strong.
“By integrating our collective experience in sampling and automation and industry process knowledge, we will continue to challenge conventional sample process technologies and deliver innovative and reliable sampling and analytical solutions. The benefits of the joint portfolio are immediately available to all our customers, and the pipeline is strong,” adds Tina Knudsen, General Manager, Sampling, Preparation and Analysis – Mining at FLSmidth.
