ABOUT RITHMIK SOLUTIONS
Rithmik Solutions reduces mining greenhouse gas emissions and increases profitability with analytics that optimize mobile equipment maintenance. Rithmik Asset Health Analyzer (AHA™) uses machine learning to sift through vast amounts of data and draw attention to precisely where the issues are, and it does it early enough for mines to take action to prevent small problems from turning into big ones. Unlike other predictive maintenance solutions, Rithmik is tailored for the unique challenges of mobile equipment and provides insights with scalable accuracy. It also enables increased efficiencies for reductions in fuel burn of up to 15% – all while integrating with existing systems and without adding sensors or hardware.
