DEM Solutions Releases EDEM BulkSim® Design Engineering Software and Solutions for the Global Mining Industries

DEM Solutions, the company setting the standard for engineering application of discrete element method (DEM) simulation, today announced the availability of EDEM BulkSim® suite of design engineering solutions developed specifically to overcome the bulk materials handling challenges of the global Mining industry. Developed with input and collaboration from leading Mining and Engineering Procurement and Construction Management (EPCM) companies, EDEM BulkSim enables simulation-based design of production critical bulk materials handling equipment, such as chutes and transfer points, that are better performing and more reliable.

“The mining industry has unique challenges in handling and processing its raw product at the scale now common in high-producing mines,” stated Dr John Favier, CEO and Founder of DEM Solutions. “Due to the tonnage of ore or coal involved there are massive cost implications to mine site operations of equipment failure and unscheduled down time. Conveyor transfer equipment is crucial to the transport and handling of thousands of tons of mined materials per hour and a major pain point for mine operators. EDEM BulkSim software provides an unparalleled capability for transfer point design engineers to virtually test and troubleshoot the performance of conveyor transfer equipment before it is actually manufactured and commissioned. This capability not only reduces front-end design costs and shortens development time, but it also results in better performing and more reliable equipment with less down time. Also, mine operators now have a tool for quantifying the affect of changes in production capacity or ore body characteristics on the performance and maintenance scheduling for transfer equipment. All of these benefits are particularly important as the mining industry increases its focus on user safety, optimizing operational efficiencies and adopting a total product life cycle management approach to mine operations.”

Dr Favier added, “DEM simulation is being widely adopted in many of the major discrete manufacturing and process industries as it provides a ‘real world’ level of detail of bulk materials and solids like no other CAE technology, and our EDEM® portfolio of simulation software, advanced calibration methods and services has been setting the standard in the commercial application of DEM. Building on the commercial successes of EDEM with blue chip customers across many industries, including mining, construction and agricultural equipment as well as metals manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, and consumer goods, we are now leading the industry with EDEM BulkSim, the most advanced DEM simulation software and solutions for the optimization of bulk material handling equipment design and operation for the Mining industry. Early deployments of EDEM BulkSim have already demonstrated improved designs and operational benefits, and one such project with our partner Bulk Materials Engineering Australia (BMEA) has resulted in us receiving a Highly Commended Award in the category of Innovative Technology for EDEM BulkSim at the recent Australian Bulk Handling Awards Dinner in Sydney, Australia.”
