Robotic Technologies in the Mining Industry

The mining industry is transitioning from a capital intensive expansion phase to a productivity driven operational improvement future. To stay competitive, the industry is in need of innovations to boost efficiency, safety, and overall productivity. The objective of this paper is to present developed automated robotic systems that can address major operational issues in the mining industry. Technology solutions for material handling, heavy vehicle, and primary crusher maintenances are discussed. With robotic technologies, maintenance can be performed on conveyors while they are loaded and operational, thus increasing productivity and operational safety. With growing haul truck fleets, tyre maintenance and fuel costs are proving to be the highest expense factors.

Significant gains can be made with robotics by decreasing the time to complete the tasks and in creasing utilisation of haul trucks. GETDETECT on shovels & other excavating equipment is critical to production and can lead to costly downtime if broken from the shovel without detection. A smart technology solution can provide condition monitoring which will deliver new levels of control over components of heavy mining shovels.

MAR will also have a stand in the exhibition hall – Booth 2146
