Metso Outotec has launched a virtual reality tool to help inspect horizontal grinding mill linings.

The virtual inspection platform uses 3D scanning technology to enable the scanned mill linings to be viewed in virtual reality, to provide an efficient and safe environment for technical discussions.

On-site mill lining inspections can be safely hosted while being off-site through immersive video walkthroughs.

Metso Outotec Research and Technology Development Manager, Mill Lining Solutions, Lars Furtenbach said the MillMapper 3D-scanning of mill linings has been the industry benchmark for years.

“The scans are used to understand the way the mill liners wear, to optimize the liner design, and to accurately predict the reline schedules,” Furtenbach said.

“There is a growing need to find new ways to reach out to our customers and to discuss mill lining performance with them remotely.

“Our customers will benefit from our strong experience with over 8000 mills worldwide combined with the market’s most comprehensive offering and the new software platform.”

Using virtual reality for inspections reduces the need to travel to the site and to make inspections in a risky environment. In addition, the tool promotes the creation of optimised and long-lasting liners that significantly reduce CO2 emissions because less product needs to be manufactured and transported.
