Open pit mines around the world have used ProVision machine guidance systems to increase their total tons moved, improve the accuracy of material movement, and decrease costs associated with working outside of the mine plan for more than 20 years.
Machine Guidance for Loading Equipment
The ProVision system for loading equipment helps your operators increase productivity by leveraging high-precision GPS to actively guide operators to:
Dig the right material
Keep the designed bench grade
Respect dig limits
Work within the machine’s optimal operating specifications
Track true bucket movement in relation to ore boundaries, designed bench grades, material layers, and slopes
Stick to the mine plan
The system integrates with mine planning software, providing operators with real-time updates to ore boundaries for improved resource management. The on-board mobile device shows real-time track elevation against plan, helping to reduce bench grade rework and improve drilling performance on subsequent benches. Seamless integration with the DISPATCH system helps identify and prevent misdirected loads. The shared digital terrain model enables shared projects between any ProVision-equipped units—which is especially useful when dozers are working around loaders or shovels.
