HxGN Autonomous Mining Drill Assist
Increase equipment lifespan, enhance drill operator performance and improve blasting outcomes with dynamic corrective action technology.
An interactive mining experience
Dynamic corrective action produces predictable results
Develop a smarter, more successful mine with high-precision drilling
Drilling is a key step in the production process to get right because it impacts blast outcomes. However, skilled drill operators are hard to find and costly to train, which impacts machine performance and drill hole quality.
Drill Assist enhances drill operator performance, minimizes hole failure, and reduces wear and tear on equipment. AI technology monitors all input signals and takes dynamic corrective action, reducing reliance on operator input. By retaining the existing OEM technology platform, the tool helps mines to innovate without having to invest in new machine controls.
As part of an autonomous connected ecosystem, Drill Assist helps mining enterprises generate value and long-term productivity.
Intuitive user interface shortens time to productivity
Unlike traditional automated drilling platforms, the Drill Asist user interface is intuitive, and does not require extensive operator training. This empowers drill operators to improve hole quality, regardless of experience.
Machine automation raises the bar for accuracy
Algorithms monitor all input signals and take dynamic, autonomous corrective actions to avoid hole failure.
Integration with one, connected ecosystem generates better outcomes
Drilling data can tell the mine site about ground hardness, ore grade and enable decision-makers to integrate this information with insights from downstream practices to improve blasting outcomes.
