The modsys team has extensive experience in the mining industry covering all phases from front end design through project management, detailed design, commissioning, optimisation and support.

As the mining industry transitions from the recent boom in construction projects to operation and maintenance work there is an increasing focus on gains in productivity, efficiency and reliability. The team at modsys has worked on projects for a range of clients, sites and minerals. Drawing on this broad range of experience, modsys has developed proven PLC and HMI libraries that provide the reliability and high performance required in today’s environment.

We specialise in the automation of fixed plant from the pit to port.

Ore Handling

Ore handling

modsys has extensive experience with a wide range of ore handling plant including:

  • Conveyors, shuttles, trippers and feeders
  • Crushers and sizers
  • Screens and feeders
  • Car dumpers

Beyond controlling individual pieces of equipment, modsys develops higher level sequencing systems that are used to coordinate the control of equipment networks. In addition to optimisation for existing systems, we offer a standard route sequencing system that delivers efficient and reliable control that can implemented as an turn key package on sites where higher level controls are not currently provided.

Process Control

Process control

An area that often can realise easy efficiency gains, the modsys team are well versed in process control. We can apply proven control methodologies to improve the performance of enrichment processes including:

  • Crushing and grinding
  • Dry and wet screening
  • Classification and filtration
  • Thickening
  • Flotation

Beyond the direct control, extracting and synthesising process data for meaningful analysis is always integrated into our systems.



Sampling processes typically involves a significant manual handling component. Consequently, there are significant gains to quality and cost-effectiveness that can be made from automating more of the process. modsys is well placed to provide this automation with experience in all aspects of the sampling process from the primary sampler to sample analysis:

  • Cross belt sample cutters
  • Belt feeders
  • Vibrating feeders
  • Rotary sample dividers and collectors
  • Robotic sample preparation and analysis



The importance of an operations’ effect on the environmental and regulations which safeguard it are increasing coming to the forefront of operators and maintainers consideration. modsys is familiar with common minesite environmental equipment and offers electrical and control system services for the following:

  • Dust collection
  • Dust suppression
  • Dust and pollution monitoring
  • Water consumption monitoring
