FLSmidth partners with GE to increase equipment productivity

By |  May 13, 2016

flsmidth-logoFLSmidth partnered with GE, formerly General Electric, to create digital solutions for increasing productivity in the cement and minerals industries.

According to FLSmidth, the new solutions developed on GE’s cloud-based Predix platform will leverage FLSmidth’s expertise in cement and minerals processing and GE’s Industrial Internet of Things capabilities to maximize the potential of connected equipment units.

“FLSmidth and GE are bringing together the best from two worlds, GE’s digital industrial expertise to help customers to be more productive and FLSmidth’s deep insight into processes and maintenance of cement and minerals plants,” says John Manison, general manager for GE’s Mining Solutions business. “Our collaboration will form a strong foundation for the development of a greater digital ecosystem.”

In order to allow customers to leverage process data and analytics for monitoring, FLSmidth will build its solutions on top of GE’s Predix platform with applications for managing process flow.

“Cement and mining companies already collect significant volumes of data, but currently, only a fraction of it is used,” says Jens Almdal, head of global R&D at FLSmidth. “This will be the first available solution for a full coherent process monitoring to leverage optimization solutions offered by a full service provider like FLSmidth. By connecting our control applications with GE’s platform, we can bring FLSmidth’s proven expertise in resource optimization and productivity together with GE’s monitoring and data analytics solution to create an unrivaled combination that will dramatically improve the productivity in the cement and minerals industries.”

The FLSmidth control applications integrated on GE’s Predix platform will be launched in the third quarter of 2016.
