Hexagon introduces the Power of One at MINExpo

13 September 2021

Las Vegas, NV, 13 September 2021

Hexagon’s Mining division today introduced the Power of One, a holistic, life-of-mine smart solution connecting sensors and software, infield apps and cloudware to empower digital transformation. For the first time, one technology partner connects the mine to the boardroom via a single onboard ecosystem comprising a smart computer, antenna and display.

For customers it offers the scalable, platform-agnostic answer to challenges previously addressed by point solutions and multiple vendors: drill and blast, collision avoidance, operator alertness, fleet management, operator assist, machine control, asset health and more. For the industry, it points the way to a safer, more productive and sustainable future.

“The Power of One marks the next step in Hexagon’s convergence journey and the fulfillment of a commitment to connect all parts of a mine,” said Nick Hare, Hexagon’s Mining division President. “By harnessing data from multiple sensors in a simple and consolidated software architecture, we empower mines to become situationally aware, self-learning and autonomously connected in the field and in the cloud.

“For the end user, it means an effortless experience with a seamless UI/UX and consistent functionality. Reduced cost of ownership, reduced deployment and training time, reduced supply chain complexity and increased operator adoption – these are just some of the many benefits. This is a landmark enabler for next-generation autonomy, offering mines a uniquely intelligent approach based on open architecture.”

Earlier today at MINExpo in Las Vegas, Hexagon launched MineMeasure, a tailored portfolio for drill and blast combining blast design software, high-precision drills, blast movement monitoring, fragmentation analysis and enterprise analytics. “It’s a perfect example of the Power of One,” said Hare. “From one platform, MineMeasure ensures data does its best work, empowering customers with a feedback loop, calibrated to increase profit from every blast.”

From Sept. 13-15 at Booth 4057, MINExpo visitors can tour a unique and interactive life-of-mine experience, and learn more about the Power of One, MineMeasure and related technologies for planning, operations and safety.
