Meet our new partners: RMC Corporate in Chile


We’re delighted to announce a new partnership with RMC Corporate in Chile as a new integration partner. The agreement allows us to explore South America for the first time and support our Chilean partner with state-of-the-art Fiber Optic Sensing Technology from our HQ in Austria. Our support will be integral in making the work processes in the mining industry in Chile more efficient and economically viable.

Our specialized production capabilities enable us to create high-quality, customizable FIMT, which can be produced with various sensory properties. These qualities are suited for measuring extremely high temperatures and strain and crack detection, which is essential for monitoring buildings and infrastructures.

Karl Bauer, owner and managing director of the NBG Group, said, “We are very pleased to support RMC with our technology in such a responsible task. Furthermore, the decision to gain a business foothold on the other side of the world is a strategically important one, which not only our company but also every employee and staff member can grow from.”

Structural Health Monitoring

Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) consists of observing and analysing any changes to the properties of structures, including bridges, buildings, dams, and many other types of infrastructure. Fiber optic monitoring provides accurate data relayed in real-time, allowing operators to guarantee a structure’s safety and maximum operating efficiency.

Our partnership with RMC Corporate ensures that our state-of-the-art Structural Health Monitoring technology will lead to increased safety standards in Chile’s mines. Specifically, we will supply RMC with FBG-based technology (Fiber Bragg Grating). FBG is a sensitive optical microstructure just a few millimeters long that is integrated into a standard single-mode fiber. With the help of this grating, it becomes possible to monitor strain, temperature, tilt, acceleration, and displacement, selectively and in real-time, and detect and remedy any damage that might pose a threat at an early stage.
