Our Focus

We challenge the status quo of traditional sampling and sample processing. We work with like-minded customers to provide innovative robotics and automation solutions from sampling to analysis that improve ergonomics, health and safety for laboratory operators,  improve integrity, quality and precision of analytical data and improve efficiencies. IMP designs and supplies manual, semi and fully automated, robotic sample preparation and process control laboratories, turnkey sampling systems and laboratories, for mining, metallurgical, cement, non-ferrous industry and steel plants. Our innovative solutions include sampling systems, sample transport systems, online and inline analysers, manual and fully robotic and automated laboratories.

As milestones along the path towards global leadership in robotics and automation, IMP has supplied:

The largest laboratory automation project in the world to Anglo Platinum in South Africa (the facility is the size of a football pitch and uses 14 robots)

The largest robotic sample preparation and wet chemistry system in the world for FMI (previously Phelps Dodge) in the USA

The largest fully automated iron ore laboratory in the world for BHP BIO in Western Australia

The largest fully automated robotic port laboratory in the world for Rio in Western Australia

We work in close cooperation with all major manufacturers of analytical equipment and system components for logistical interfacing. This ensures that systems are customised to optimally meet the specific needs and preferences of each customer. If you are looking to improve the efficiencies, health and safety, ergonomics, sample integrity and sample quality please contact us. Our innovators will team up with you to come up with the best possible robotics and automation solution for mutual benefit.
