Futuristic Solutions Threaten Status Quo
This article, featured in the September 2020 issue of E&MJ, highlights innovations from such suppliers as Modular Mining, Komatsu, and our Komatsu Technology sister company, MineWare.
Read the article below to learn how a mine in Brazil recently leveraged our DISPATCH Fleet Management System (FMS) and ProVision Machine Guidance System for Loading Equipment to reduce ore dilution by more than 2% by:
- Improving shovel operator dig accuracy with real-time progress line visualization and high-precision machine guidance
- Increasing shovel operator efficiency and minimizing safety risks by eliminating manual staking and surveying
- Optimizing the usage of stock piles by increasing blending at the crusher via the DISPATCH FMS’ Blending module
- Maximizing control of the total material mined via the DISPATCH FMS’ Dynamic Material Inventory Reporting Module
Furthermore, the reduction in ore dilution resulted in a 1.1% increase in the material grade output, equating to $5.7 million in estimated revenue per year.
