Managing automated underground mining fleets from the surface

"If we have two underground loaders in different locations operating autonomously, your extra 30 buckets might be an extra 50 buckets over the cross shift change and that is being overseen by one operator utilising Multiple Machine Control on the surface. We have bogged between 10,000 and 12,000 tons of dirt more this month than what we had forecasted."

Workforce accountability made easy

"Visual learning is a great tool to make improvements to operations, which in turn, ensures operators carry out day-to-day operations in an efficient manner. These mining-specific cameras are gaining in momentum and popularity with the ever-increasing focus on safety and driver behavioural habits."

RCT technology recently implemented around the world:

Logistics machine operators can now safely reverse and detect objects from up to 20 metres away on this Konecranes Reach Stacker after we installed an AusProTec™ Rear Detection system.

Muirhead® Park Brake Door Alarm installed to this Cat 972K Wheel Loader. This safeguards machine fleets and alerts operators to apply the handbrake before exiting the vehicle.

Installed the EarthTrack® Payload Management system on this Komatsu HD785 Truck. This enables optimal weight loads to be evenly distributed in truck trays which reduces fleet wear and tear.

Our Field Service Technicians have vast experience enhancing all types of equipment, and recently commissioned a Fire Suppression system for this Liebherr 9600 Excavator.

Installing ControlMaster® Automation technology on these narrow-vein Loaders: two Sandvik LH203 and one Komatsu Joy LT-270. These will be utilised by some of the Goldfield's biggest mining companies.

A major Western Australian mining company will now utilise ControlMaster® Automation on their underground Sandvik LH514 Loader fleet, which will be fully supported by our Goldfields-based team.
