TESCAN Webinar:

Introducing the New TESCAN TIMA for Mineral Processing

On demand


In November 2020, TESCAN announced the release of the new generation of TESCAN TIMA, a dedicated solution for automated mineralogical analysis in Earth Science studies as well as for industrial mineral processing. As a dedicated industrial mineral processing solution, TIMA is designed with the robustness required by the industry, while also minimizing the need for expert operators or even on-site presence due to its high level of automation and remote-control capability.

TIMA’s patented spectral summing algorithm increases throughput and significantly enhances the detection of low abundance elements. TIMA automates mineral phase identification, measurement, and textural data interpretation and channels the results into predefined or highly customizable reports. Particle and grains filtering and categorization are available for advanced users, while data management workflows remain simple. Built-in quality control features produce reliable and robust data that can be processed offline to maximize the tool time for automated runs.

In this webinar, we will discuss TIMA’s features and workflows and their role in high throughput industrial mineral processing.
