Voith released BeltGenius ERIC, software that allows mine operators to assess conveyor efficiency, the company reported. The system receives relevant performance data from the conveyor, which then goes to a server at Voith. The server hosts a digital twin of the system.

The software provides a way to optimize capacity and reduce energy consumption, Voith reported.
