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 “Älyteräs” products (wear measurement device installed inside of abrasion resistant steel) and develop Miilux Mining service service concept.


Key results and impact

We build “Älyteräs” prototype, which tells to us when wear part has to be changed. Miilux Mining Service is ready and we have been marketing it to Finnish mines since 2013 (2016 Miilux Mining Service is going strong). 

Commercialization status (demos, pilotings, investments, products, services): Demos were build and tested, they were successful. Miilux Mining Service is proceeding according to plans.
