As mines push deeper beneath the surface for deposits, the need for better communication and collaboration increases. Complexities that may be easier to overcome above ground, require domain expertise and often non-scalable customized solutions, below. As data from a growing number of instruments, humans, and mobile assets needs to be outside the mine for analysis, the network infrastructure and software to collect and process these packets become obstacles for true underground mining optimization and safety.
HxGN MineOperate UG Foundation is the only completely off-the-shelf tablet solution in the underground mining market for tracking machines, miners, and their material movements, ensuring they’re operating together as efficiently as possible. MineOperate UG Foundation combines with a software application to manage underground fleet equipment.
Mine management reporting system
The solution works both offline or connected to existing underground mine communications to capture daily production activities and equipment utilization metrics. It converts this information into manageable packets of information required to ensure continuous business improvement decisions are made. It’s the critical first step in digitizing manually captured activities.
MineOperate UG Foundation allows users to quickly respond to onboard data and reduce maintenance costs. Assets can be tracked, saving time that was previously wasted trying to identify locations of people and equipment. Meanwhile, technical services can divert time previously spent collecting and validating data to implementing business improvement initiatives.
Expect less downtime for unplanned maintenance issues and reduced hourly costs of running data from the working face to the nearest network node. UG Foundation can also help reduce the percentage of finished product wastage while increasing a mine's overall operating capacity.
