Hexagon partners with HARD-LINE to protect mines with tele-remote technology

15 September 2021

Las Vegas, NV, 15 September 2021

Hexagon’s Mining division today announced a partnership with Canadian company HARD-LINE, a leading supplier of automation, teleoperation and remote-control technology for the mining industry. HARD-LINE’s TeleOp product allows for the tele-remote operation of heavy machinery from a control station in a safe area on the surface or underground, regardless of distance.

Hexagon will distribute TeleOp, further strengthening its market-leading portfolios for safety and autonomous solutions.

“We’re looking forward to collaborating with HARD-LINE, which shares our vision of a future that’s safer, sustainable and increasingly autonomous,” said Nick Hare, President of Hexagon’s Mining division.

“Remote control is a key enabler of autonomy, taking humans out of dangerous situations in the mine where it’s unsafe to have a manned vehicle. We’re excited to develop our partnership and our customers can expect further product integrations.”

President of HARD-LINE, Walter Siggelkow, said: “With Hexagon’s expertise and our internationally recognized technology – this partnership really benefits both companies and customers in many ways. This is a special day.”

Today at Booth 4057, MINExpo visitors can tour a unique and interactive life-of-mine experience, and learn more about integrated technologies for planning, operations and safety.
