The Australian Mining Review - - COMPANIES GEARING UP -

Tech­nol­ogy pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for the world’s lead­ing min­ers to boost pro­duc­tiv­ity.

The era of data, op­ti­mi­sa­tion and au­to­ma­tion is de­liv­er­ing a com­pet­i­tive ad­van­tage to those who chose to em­brace the op­por­tu­nity.

Re­duc­ing op­er­at­ing costs, max­imis­ing pro­duc­tiv­ity and us­ing data to drive de­ci­sion mak­ing is good busi­ness.

Fleet Man­age­ment Sys­tems like MineLink have a place in this revo­lu­tion as their open data­base ar­chi­tec­ture and re­port­ing sys­tem al­lows sites to view real-time per­for­mance in­for­ma­tion in­clud­ing equip­ment po­si­tion, ac­tiv­ity, sta­tus, pro­duc­tion, ma­te­rial, op­er­a­tor lo­gin, as­sign­ments and en­gine hours.

With ex­pe­ri­ence in the de­sign, im­ple­men­tion, sup­port and main­te­nance of min­ing Fleet Man­age­ment Sys­tems span­ning be­yond 10 years MineLink FMS has been de­signed and de­vel­oped based on SNC Tech­nolo­gies to scale from small mines to a very large mines with mul­ti­ple pits and dump­ing ar­eas.

The MineLink sys­tem is highly ca­pa­ble of pro­vid­ing com­pletely au­to­mated equip­ment cy­cle de­tec­tion with no need for op­er­a­tor in­put.

MineLink utilises a num­ber of in­puts such as OEM sys­tems, pay­load sys­tems and GPS with soft­ware logic to ac­cu­rately cap­ture cy­cle phases with­out the need for any op­er­a­tor in­put.

The MineLink FMS sup­ports teams in the fol­low­ing ways:

• Move more with­out hav­ing to in­crease truck or ex­ca­va­tor fleet.

• Lower fuel costs: Trucks don’t queue as long for an ex­ca­va­tor. MineLink FMS en­ables ef­fi­cient man­age­ment of the mine fleet re­fu­elling process across the en­tire fleet with real-time fuel level data.

• Re­duce main­te­nance costs: MineLink pro­vides con­nec­tiv­ity to CAT VIMS, Ko­matsu VHMS and other ma­jor heavy equip­ment OEM sys­tems so en­gine prob­lems can be de­tected early and be­fore they re­quire costly re­pairs.

• In­crease equip­ment pro­duc­tiv­ity: through util­is­ing the MineLink FMS real-time in­for­ma­tion and re­port­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties to as­sist the dis­patcher, su­per­vi­sors and man­agers on achiev­ing pri­mary goals, you have the ca­pa­bil­ity to in­crease pro­duc­tiv­ity and re­duce costs ef­fi­ciently and in real-time.

• In­crease man­power pro­duc­tiv­ity: MineLink FMS as­sists op­er­a­tors and su­per­vi­sors to achieve the high­est work per­for­mance by au­to­mat­i­cally as­sign­ing the op­er­a­tor to the most op­ti­mal loader or dump. Re­duce lost man­power time wait­ing in queues or for the next truck.

• Achieve goals with real-time track­ing. MineLink FMS pro­vides abil­ity to track mine oper­a­tions in­clud­ing equip­ment po­si­tion, ac­tiv­ity, sta­tus, pro­duc­tion, ma­te­rial, op­er­a­tor lo­gin, as­sign­ments and en­gine hours.

• In­creased vis­i­bil­ity of mine site: Op­er­a­tors, dis­patch­ers and su­per­vi­sors can view a mov­ing map of the en­tire mine site dis­play­ing all equip­ment in real-time. There are mul­ti­ple map lay­ers for each type of equip­ment, dumps, blasts, roads and more.

• Im­prove man­age­ment in­for­ma­tion and re­port­ing: View real-time pro­duc­tion data at site or the com­pany HQ of­fice or any­where in the world. MineLink pro­vides not only “data” but con­cise and easy to read sum­mary data that al­lows you to iden­tify and fix prob­lems in real-time.
