A new point of view in cement plant operations
With the use of remote-controlled drones, cement producers now have a new tool to help increase productivity in daily operations, by providing faster and more accurate results in various applications that previously required skilled and expensive external service providers.
Remote controlled planes and helicopters have been used for a long time by hobbyists and military forces, but only in recent years has progress in miniaturization of electronics, digital cameras and batteries allowed maximization of their full potential, making them accessible to everyone. Drones (also known as “UAV” – Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) are available in a wide range of type, size, performance and prices. The current technologies allow for live recording of photos and videos used in a wide variety of applications, including in the industrial world.
