Calculate the required force to deep draw a piece of sheet metal based on the drawing ratio, sheet thickness, and the ultimate tensile strength of the material. The drawing ratio is a measure of the severity of the drawing operation and is the ratio of the initial blank diameter to the punch diameter. For a given material, the limiting drawing ratio (LDR) is a measure of that material's deep

SAG mills use a ball charge of 8 to 21%. The largest SAG mill is 42' (12.8m) in diameter, powered by a 28 MW (38,000 HP) motor. A SAG mill with a 44' (13.4m) diameter and a power of 35 MW (47,000 HP) has been designed. Attrition between grinding balls and ore particles causes grinding of finer particles. SAG mills are characterized by their

Operating mills that want to use geometallurgy for production forecasting should perform a milling circuit survey to provide calibration parameters for the model to be used in the production forecast. This can be as simple as determining the "CF" factors for Bond-based calculations to more complicated SAG/Ball mill power draw model calibrations for ores of variable density.

Typically, at startup post SAG mill reline, the maximum operable speed ranges are reduced to minimise direct shell impacts due to the steeper face angle of the lifters. This operational approach severely limits available power draw by the mill to maintain higher throughputs for competent ores. This was seen by PBM as lost opportunity
