Precision Mine Drilling
Depend on machine-guided, high-precision drilling to execute drillhole and blast design effectively.
Hexagon provides high-precision guidance for dozers, drills and loading equipment, improving bench elevations, reducing dilution and decreasing rework. Enterprise integration offers a single source for reporting and support across the fleet.
The drill and blast workflow directly impacts the entire mining process, from mining equipment efficiency, through crushing and grinding circuit performance, to recoveries and final product quality.
Costs and energy usage increase throughout the comminution process. Efforts targeted at optimising the blasting process can pay huge dividends downstream, reducing costs and energy consumption.
Hexagon tailors proven software and hardware solutions with technical expertise to measure and improve the drill and blast process. Accuracy and efficiency is ensured by using machine-guided, high-precision drills, allowing you to drill to the right position and elevation the first time, every time.
Operational feedback via equipment and tablet-based apps means planners, operations and management are kept informed of plan deviations so they can pivot and minimise value lost. This integrated solution assembles planned schedules and operational progress in a web-based app accessible to stakeholders.
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
