Big congratulations to the Machinery Automation & Robotics and Rio Tinto team who picked up highly commended in the machine builder category at the PACE Zenith Awards last night. The event marked PACE magazines 60year anniversary and also the tenth awards dinner.
One of the core objectives of the PACE Zenith Awards is to provide a platform for innovative teams across Australia to share their work with their peers. Good ideas are contagious and there were plenty on show last night.
With a vast amount of experience in automation and robotics, MAR in conjunction with Rio Tinto successfully designed and built the Robotic Idler Replacement System. The Robotic Idler Replacement System provides an innovative method of changing idlers out reducing the risk of injury to personnel and allowing mine sites to conduct routine maintenance on conveyors with zero downtime. This cutting edge, first of its kind technology will provide not only high financial returns but greatly improve safety within the mining industry, a must for any mine site.
The award reflects the hard work and endless hours that have been spent developing and implementing the Robotic Idler Replacement System.
With an extensive range of technologies developed specifically for the mining industry MAR should be your mine site’s first contact for mining automation and robotics solutions.
