Mine Blast Data Management
Identify and understand the challenges within drill and blast, and close the loop on reconciliation.
Hexagon’s integrated web-based platform allows production engineers to easily share drill and blast data with stakeholders. Operations and management can react quickly to new information and course-correct poor design compliance, saving time and money.
Unlocking data for drill and blast
Drill and blast is a complex, multi-layered process where errors can accumulate downstream with costly consequences. Declining ore grades mean mines are digging more earth for less ore.
Ensuring data does its best work becomes more important to measuring and improving productivity, efficiency and quality by eliminating errors and minimising waste.
The right technology applied holistically to drill and blast means greater collaboration between teams, insight into costs and opportunities to increase ore recovery with every feedback loop.
Hexagon’s web-based platform combines drill and blast design with operational feedback from equipment and tablet-based applications. It provides a single source of truth by assembling designs with actuals, including drilling, quality assurance, consumable usage, charging, topography and geology data.
With a solution connecting planning, operations and safety, you can close the reconciliation loop by solving drill and blast design workflow challenges.
We’re climbing the automation curve
Our transition to Intelligent automation is accelerating. Ultimately, our innovations will give rise to new technologies and applications - many of which we’ve yet to imagine. Today, every Hexagon solution is mapped and tagged according to its level of automation, so customers can clearly track our progress towards the freedom of autonomy.
All tasks completed by human labour; no data is leveraged across the operation.
Labour is primarily conducted by a human workforce. Some functions have been automated to simplify control.
Some tasks are automated for short periods of time, accompanied by occasional human intervention.
Human workforce is used for intervention as autonomous operations begin to increase productivity.
Autonomous systems complete required tasks within specific bounds, unleashing data and building smart digital realities.
A smart digital reality™ enables autonomous systems to complete all tasks without human intervention.
