Enabling automation on drilling rigs; Improves capability and reach

Mining Engineering, 2014, Vol. 66, No. 11, pp. 48-48


PREVIEW:

Automated drilling in surface mines is here, it’s successful, and it’s already at work in mines around the globe. Coal, copper, iron and gold mines in large mining countries such as Canada, Australia, South Africa, the United States and Chile are meeting mining objectives previously ruled out as unattainable. Pit Viper automation enables operators to accomplish more objectives safely. Operator assist functions like AutoLevel, AutoDrill, Auto Rod Changer and multi-rig teleremote control are a few of the features mines are using to gain consistent, sustainable productivity.
