J²drill is an accurate, high-precision GPS navigation system, coupled with real-time sensor feedback which empowers site personnel to make informed decisions on management, production performance, operator performance, planning, and consumables. Rely on J²drill for reduced ore loss, improved recovery, and better monitoring of production data. Eliminate the need for surveyors to stake a pattern and decrease their exposure to dangerous locations.
J²drill provides machine guidance for both rotary blast hole production rigs and boom/articulated drill rigs. This is performed by displaying the drill rig in relation to a virtual drill pattern on the J²drill display. The operator uses the display to guide the drill into position and orientate the mast or boom at the correct angle. The system automatically adjusts the display by zooming on approach, displaying distance to hole and switching between screens depending on current operation.
J²drill is integrated with the Jigsaw Operations Suite. The suite links fleet management and optimization, high-precision guidance, and autonomous control into a Universal Hardware and Software Platform (UHP) to deliver a total mine management solution. The UHP can be swapped between any machine in its operating class, lowering capital outlay, and increasing flexibility.
