Mine Production Drilling
Streamline the drill and blast workflow from design to reconciling, planning and fragmentation.
Hexagon can help you integrate and streamline the drill and blast workflow with tools for blast design, safety exclusion zones, charge information and reconciliation between planned and actual fragmentation.
Planning blast holes without feedback or a direct way to share design data with production crews can lead to costly misunderstandings.
Hexagon provides a holistic, data-driven approach to all facets of the drill and blast process, including mine production drilling. This approach comprises a rapid design utility that allows you to create and store templates, complete bootleg analysis and create safety exclusion zones for equipment and personnel based on actual terrain in a 3D environment.
Charge information per hole is assigned based on rock hardness, ore type classification or other factors to optimise fragmentation. Survey, timing and charge instructions can be viewed in the application and communicated to other stakeholders.
Once holes are drilled and loaded in the field, actual results can be imported back to the utility for tracking plan versus actual Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), such as horizontal, vertical, depth and charge compliance.
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.
Human performs all tasks, no data being used
Human is in charge of performing tasks but certain functions are automated to simplify control
Some tasks are automated so that operation can be autonomous for short periods (or within specific circumstances)
Autonomous operation is possible within certain bounds, but human intervention may be necessary at short notice
Designed to complete required tasks autonomously, but may require human intervention if circumstances change beyond specific bounds
Control tasks automated under all conditions, but human may request to take over; can complete all expected tasks without human intervention
