. The main source of value of Valoriza Mineria is based on its R+D+i, which enables the company to develop and implement innovative products or services in its lines of business. The R+D+I activities of the company will seek to enhance the quality of mining machinery, to improve the safety of the workers and the optimization of management and processes.
IDI-20150286. Development of a prototype automated system of vertical drilling holes for the mining industry
The main objective of this project is the development of an automated system for vertical drilling of blast holes for its use in narrow vein mining. This system will allow Valoriza Mineria to sequence the drilling operation under conditions of limited space and accessibility, allowing mechanized drilling, usually done by hand drilling. It will also reduce the time of exposure of workers to potentially dangerous conditions, increasing their security conditions on the mine. The use of this cutting edge technology will allow the recovery of abandoned mining activities by technical failure or low profitability, and on the other hand, it will increase the production in mines with similar characteristics.
The project has been funded by the Centre for Technological and Industrial Development (CDTI), an agency under the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, through the granting of aid co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
IDI-20151073. Development of low-cost modular simulators applied to mining machinery industry
The main objective of this project is the development and operation of a virtual training center, based on low cost simulators. A new construction method will be developed for manufacture simulators of 180 immersion and platforms of 3 degrees of freedom, at a cost of between 5 and 7 times lower and based on RIRO technologies (roll in, roll out). The project aims to develop simulators for three different machines: backhoe loaders, wheeled front loader and dump truck. This method will minimize maintenance costs, because the simulators will consist of several modules, largely shared between the simulators of different machines.
