Mobile Equipment Life Cycle Costing is a practical guide for managing the economic life of a mining truck fleet. It covers key financial, commercial and physical aspects of truck management and explains specific methods for acquiring and operating these vehicles to full advantage. The course includes three sections—Introduction, Life Cycle Cost Analysis, and Optimization. It is structured to support a vigorous discounted cash flow analysis that embraces realistic estimates for the key operating and maintenance variables associated with running haul trucks, and discusses options for improving overall truck performance and productivity. The objective is to provide an analytic framework that enables readers to impartially assess haul truck investments by using reliable financial modeling and sensitivity analysis. The life cycle model should be functional as a baseline for formal equipment planning and management and for measuring the performance of the haul truck fleet during its useful life. People who will benefit from this course include purchasing, maintenance, engineering and production managers from mining companies that operate fleets of large haul trucks.

Molienda 1 – Principios fundamentales es un curso dirigido a ingenieros de procesos, operadores de molino y estudiantes de procesamiento de minerales. Éste es el primero de una serie de tres cursos de ingeniería de molienda desarrollado por Metso Performance Solutions. los otros títulos de la serie son Molienda 2 – Operación de unidades y Molienda 3 - Circuitos. Entre las materias que aborda este curso están: aspectos básicos del procesamiento de minerales, partículas, pulpas, conminución, clasificación, dinámicas, física y seguridad general en la molienda. En los últimos años, la industria dedicada al procesamiento de minerales ha disminuido su fuerza laboral, ha instalado nueva tecnología con equipos más grandes y ha automatizado gran parte de la planta, con el objetivo de aumentar la productividad y el desempeño y de mantener los costos operacionales en un mínimo. Como resultado de estas iniciativas, hoy en día el operador se ve enfrentado a tomar decisiones nuevas y mejor informadas. Para cumplir las necesidades de capacitación a nivel de operación de molinos, Metso Performance Solutions ha creado un Programa Automatizado de Capacitación para Operadores de Molinos. El programa completo incluye una serie de cursos de procesamiento de minerales para operadores de molinos e ingenieros de procesos en Molienda y Flotación. Estos cursos han sido adaptados para ser presentados a través del sitio Web de Edumine (en info@metso.com podrá obtener detalles). Un operador bien entrenado se traducirá en mayor rentabilidad, mayor producción, operaciones más seguras, mejor presencia anímica, mejores leyes y recuperación y comunicaciones más fluidas.
