Our Mining Solutions


Conveyor MaintenanceRoller Idler Changeout for Mining Conveyors

We can provide automated conveyor monitoring and maintenance systems such as the Roller Idler Change Solution which is capable of replacing idlers on loaded, operational conveyors.

Heavy Vehicle Maintenance

Our Automated Wheel Change solutions significantly reduce risks associated with the tyre maintenance tasks on  haul or dump trucks.

Milling Circuits

We provide a variety of Mill Maintenance solutions such as the Automatic replacement  mill liner retainer bolts and the Automated charge level scanning technology

Robofuel Robotic RefuellingRobofuel - Robotic Refuelling Technology for Mining dump trucks

The Robofuel system uses a state-of-the-art vision sensing and detection system which allows the robot to locate the position and orientation of the truck’s fuel tank.

Sample Preparation

Combining ingenuity and technical excellence, ROCKLABS® designs and manufactures systems, equipment and materials that transform the processes of metals and minerals research, mining and exploration organisations around the world.

Scanning and Profiling

Our scanning and profiling technologies suit open and underground mining applications and provide accurate and reputable measurements, improving mining safety and time

Sorting & Inspection

SCOTT  have extensive knowledge and experience in the sorting of processed ore using imaging processes. This expertise has been further extended after the company acquired Applied Sorting (AST) in 2014 who were leaders in advanced sensing and imaging technologies including X-ray, DEXA and CT scanning

All our mining technology solutions are designed to increase up-time, reduce  costs, provide production efficiencies and decrease associated safety risks.
