MITSUBISHI ELECTRIC Changes for the Better

Solutions to maximize the efficiency of quarries and aggregate processing plants

Are you looking for ways to extract every drop of potential out of your quarry or aggregate processing plant?

Mitsubishi Electric can offer a full suite of automation solutions to deliver a complete digitalisation programme for you. Total visibility of plant asset availability and overall plant performance will deliver real-time control strategies which help improve production capacity, operational efficiencies and predict asset failure, preventing unexpected shutdowns.Mitsubishi Electric has a proven track record with manufacturing and process plants such as yours, including implementing digitalisation programmes that are tailored to suit the size of your plant, available budget and your operational goals. From increasing visibility and accessibility to improving reliability, uptime, flexibility and responsiveness, you can enhance plant performance, driving profitability and competitiveness in a demanding marketplace.

PLCs and other controllers control key assets within aggregates processing facilities, such as conveyors, crushers, pumps and fans. Whilst your existing control systems and the related industrial automation components will be able to run operational tasks, they may be holding you back.
The existing infrastructure may not be able to offer the level of flexibility and responsiveness needed to optimise efficiency and minimise waste while delivering required production levels.

Let’s explore how targeted digitalisation investment programmes can help to optimise processing plants and boost performance.


The first step is to look at the current automation infrastructure. What level of control exists at each of our assets and how easy will it be to extract performance data from these assets? Ultimately the answer to those fundamental questions will determine how our implementation plan is deployed and how much investment will be required at each stage.


The key to any digitalisation programme is to discuss the key objectives and critical business drivers with the manufacturing plant. For a typical aggregates plant it is likely to include a move to reduce energy costs and a system to avoid losing critical plant assets. Digitalisation can offer many benefits and many automation devices now offer a wealth of data that can report on for example, asset energy usage and the implementation of predictive maintenance techniques to protect those critical plant assets and deploy intelligent maintenance programmes. Focussing on known problem areas or pinch points is a great way to start and will often deliver shorter return on investment (ROI) periods for manageable outlays.

Mitsubishi Electric has a proven track record of working with manufacturing and process plants to implement digitalisation programmes that can be tailored to suit the size of plant, available budget and meet the operational goals.
With a clear, well thought out, staged plan, with clear milestones along the way any size of business can benefit from the appropriate level of digitalisation, as better plant visibility will always result in improved plant performance.

Smart Infrastructure Solutions

The acquisition of ICONICS Inc. by Mitsubishi Electric brings together two key players in the automation sector where the synergy between their portfolio allows for the creation of some very exciting solutions for applications such as situational awareness for utility companies, energy demand side management in both the commercial and manufacturing space and smart building management. David Bean from Mitsubishi Electric and Chris Bromley from ICONICS UK discuss several of these solutions and the strength of their combined offering.

Edge Computing Technologies

The rise of Edge Computing and Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming the driving force among asset owners striving for improved quality, productivity and bottom line savings. The ability to create derived knowledge of the process and use AI to predict an outcome in real time offers OT managers incredible insight into the processes they have under their control. Mitsubishi Electric would like to share our insights into the technologies that are enabling businesses around the world to move to the next chapter in their journey towards digitalisation.

We Know... Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN)

Industry 4.0 has moved beyond the novelty stage and has become a strategic focus for many companies. While IIoT offers an effective technology platform for Industry 4.0 applications, its foundation is a suitable network with the necessary level of determinism to share all data generated by a process. This transparency depends on convergence, i.e. the ability to combine multiple types of traffic on a single network, which in turn depends on determinism. The technology that automation is moving towards to address this need for convergence is Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN).

Find out what we know and why we believe TSN should be part of your company's strategy today.

Who knows about the new G5-5 harmonic legislation?

Join us as we look at the new standard, how it differs from G5-4 and how it affects new / existing installations.
Are you aware that G5-5 is a site standard and not a product standard? and as little as 30Kw of none linear load could make your entire site none compliant.
Not only will be covering the standard itself, but what services and products we can offer to make your site compliant.

Smart Manufacturing for SMEs and Existing Plant

It is clear that the road to digital manufacturing offers so many productivity and efficiency benefits, so how can Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs)or existing established manufacturing plants get established on this path?
Mitsubishi Electric will take an holistic view of the complete process, show how it is possible, with a clear vision of success, to implement this journey in smaller manageable steps, honing in on the needs and aspirations of the manufacturer and producing a staged approach which delivers return on investment along the way.

The road to digitalisation can start with small steps!
