For a long time, RCT's point of difference was its ability to apply its ControlMaster® Automation & Control technology onto any machine, regardless of brand, make or model. While this still rings true, RCT's unique offering have grown exponentially over the years. ControlMaster® can be installed on one machine or a whole fleet of different machines and the level of automation is scalable to client's needs.
Recently, RCT commissioned its ControlMaster® Guidance Automation onto Sandvik's newly released "i" Series loader and Epiroc's newly released ST18 loader. Now, RCT is proud to announce it's the first independent technology provider to successfully automate CAT's R1700K underground loader in Kalgoorlie merely weeks after it was introduced into the Western Australian market.
"RCT's devices are an excellent option for our clients. Based on our experience for around 10 years in the Mexican industrial market, we are convinced of the excellent quality and effectiveness of SmarTrack® Global since we know and have tried other models and brands of fleet management systems."
- Patricia Gallardo Sánchez, Integra Soluciones Spokesperson
"POSCO's smelter and refinery's work zone can experience extremely high temperatures so it is essential that machine operators remove themselves from the area while also accessing the dozer's full range of functions. ControlMaster® has a proven history of working effectively in these very harsh environments."
- Shane Smith, Account Manager
"Our customer POSCO is very satisfied with RCT. This makes Haein Corporation have the confidence in RCT and we have now contracted two more deals with other customers. Haein Corporation is looking forward to new business with RCT and hope to expand to working with many more customers throughout South Korea."
- Haein Corporation Spokesperson
"RCT Connect is very user friendly and can be set up easily by site technicians who do not need specialised training in order to establish and maintain this technology. Designed to be agnostic, it can integrate with all of the commercially available automation and control solutions offered by global manufacturers."
- Brendon Cullen, Automation & Control Product Manager
This first phase already has the company using one Sandvik LH514 LHD for Teleremote loading operations in the long-hole stope loading areas of South Deep during shift changes. As Preece explained, the RCT technology allows for the LHD to tram between loading and dumping locations, and back autonomously with operator intervention only required when loading and tipping.
"I'm constantly amazed at what the Custom Team are achieving by adapting our products to suit custom applications — from large excavators to small skid steer loaders and anything in between."
- Steve Appleton, Manager (RCT Custom)
"I love working for a family and technology-oriented company. I've learnt so much since coming onboard and have found my passion for IT has increased exponentially. As they say, the sky is the limit, and I believe I've found my dream job."
