Leverage Telemetry to Cut Heavy Equipment Maintenance Costs

heavy equipment

Every mine manager worth his salt uses Heavy Equipment Availability and Utilization as one of primary KPIs (that, tonnes mined, and safety metrics). It is imperative that every maintenance team is compensated on the AVAILABILITY of mining equipment – especially your primary load/haul and your development equipment (e.g. Drills, Dozers, etc). However, maintaining these equipment […]

RTK or GNSS? What should a mine use?

When do you use GTK vs GNSS in Mining

RTK (Real-Time Kinematic) and GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) are both widely used technologies for utilizing GPS in mining operations. While they share the common goal of providing accurate positioning information, there are important differences between the two approaches.
