Gemcom Software International has signed a collaboration agreement with Sandvik Mining and Construction to develop a system and interface for monitoring underground mobile mining equipment.
The two companies are teaming on an innovative equipment performance and production tracking solution that will further improve consolidation and validation of information from mine operational systems.
Sandvik service solutions and automation technologies are used by many mining companies to help them manage their mining equipment and production. With growing requirements in the industry for new enabling technologies to drive greater efficiencies, there is a need for a flexible and well-integrated system for mining operations management.
Gemcom InSite delivers operations management capabilities that complement planning and scheduling activities, along with a continuous improvement engine that drives improved recovery, throughput, equipment utilisation, and performance.
Sandvik Mining and Construction’s manager of projects, systems and new offering Rauno Pitkänen says, “InSite features innovative technology that monitors in near real time equipment, events, and tracks production, which enables timely operational decision making.
“This technology, when combined with Sandvik’s sophisticated Optimine capabilities, will allow mining companies to follow up on their production, equipment, and personnel performance metrics in a simple and effective manner. Ultimately, they will be better able to manage and utilize their capital expenditures, and be able to back up business decisions with hard data.”
Gemcom’s executive vice president Allen Vaughn says, “Sandvik has developed an in-depth understanding of the demands of modern mining operations and how automation of loading and hauling processes in the mining cycle can contribute to the improvement of safety and efficiency of ore transportation.
“Sandvik’s desire to provide customers with more in-depth knowledge on the condition of the equipment for maintenance purposes, as well as production monitoring to more effectively manage draw and production control, creates the opportunity to leverage InSite.”
