UNDERGROUND AUTOMATION & CONTROL SOLUTIONS

Teleremote

Tele_UG_Icons_4Kinds

An underground miner operates heavy machinery deep underground and has to endure the hazardous environment that comes with it on a daily basis. Solution? Remove the person from that situation in the first place. Teleremote allows the operation of underground machines from the surface. It paves the way for a faster and smoother changeover of vehicle operators during shift transitions, aiding in increased productivity, and operator health and safety.

Guidance

Guidance_UG_Icons_x8kinds

Continually driving costs out of Underground mining is a focus of all mine managers. Automated Loader and Truck Guidance (Operator Assist) continues the road map of technology improving the bottom line of underground production. Greater speeds, consistent high production and less damage ensures KPI’s targets are met every time.

Independent Guidance

AutoTram_UG_Icons_x12Kinds

The ControlMaster® Independent Guidance is the ultimate underground automation mining solution in the market today.

The ease of use of the system is apparent, as the only required input from the operator is the press of a button to activate the system, and the operator can then leave the machine to navigate by itself to the destination. Steering, braking, and speed are automatically controlled by the system, together with laser technology which is utilised to keep the machine on the centre path of the drive avoiding walls and other major obstacles.

This innovative technology takes the stress out of operating machines on narrow difficult to navigate underground drives, resulting in less fatigue, less machine downtime, and significant gains in productivity. Independent Guidance is designed to improve the bottom line of underground production. Greater speeds, consistent high production and less damage ensure KPI’s targets are met every time. It can be installed on all types of underground loaders and trucks.

Future features include; EarthTrack® Machine Performance Data, Guidance Digital Dash, Independent Guidance Multi Point, Multiple Machine Control.
