Miilux: Kestävä kaivos 2

Name: Kestävä Kaivos 2

Acronym: KK2

Duration: 1.8.2013-30.4.2015

Total costs (€)/Tekes support: 132 235,60€ / 46 282,00€

Organisation: Miilux Oy

Contact person: Timo Sipilä, Miilux Oy, timo.sipila(at)


Research organization partners: Oulun ammattikorkeakoulu

Need and motivation of the project:
To get reliable knowledge about abrasion resistant steel wear and lifetime of wear parts in extreme environment. Changing wear parts in correct time saves money and makes environment happy.

Main set targets:
Build two side “Älyteräs” (wear measurement device installed inside of abrasion resistant steel).


Key results and impact

We got knowledge how to build “Älyteräs” but we could not build complete wear measurement system in project time. Knowledge about wear measurement makes Miilux stronger in mining business. 

Commercialization status (demos, pilotings, investments, products, services): Demos were build and tested, they were ok. Knowledge about wear rate measurement can be told to customers and its part of Miilux Mining Service. Miilux Mining Service is proceeding according to plans.
