Automation is not just the future of mining; it can bring you bottom-line benefits right now. By automating your mining operations through our Transfer Point Alignment (TPA) system , you can increase your productivity, machine availability and lower your operational costs.
TPA automatically keeps the transfer points of your autonomous downstream machines aligned during the excavation process . And that saves time and money.
Our TPA automation system ensures transfer point alignment by following a set of steps:
- Measuring the position of each mobile machine involved in the excavation process by means of radar and GPS sensors
- Evaluating the current machine constellation
- Sending individual commands to different actuators when detecting deviation on the optimal transfer point position
- Stopping the material flow if the deviation exceeds a predefined value
The TPA user interface offers you real-time visualization of a machine’s constellation and any transfer point misalignment. It also allows you to edit parameters and show diagnosis information, alarms and trend graphics.
