FLSmidth says it has now fully acquired IMP Automation, completing its portfolio of automated laboratory solutions for the mining industry.
Tina Knudsen, general manager for sampling, preparation and analysis – mining, says: “The benefits of the joint portfolio are immediately available to our customers, and our pipeline is strong. We are confident that our product offering covering manual and automated sampling and laboratory solutions can open new doors with our mining customers worldwide.”
Knudsen says the company sees “great potential” in the companies working together to develop digital solutions for mining.
“For instance, data collected from online analysers and the laboratory can be used to optimise the entire flow sheet for mining operations. Using this data to augment our process optimisation initiatives is an exciting prospect,” she concludes.
The combined IMP-FLSmidth customer offering of automated laboratory solutions is now available to mining customers worldwide.
