Technology Leading the Way at African Diamond Mine

Technology Leading the Way at African Diamond Mine

This was originally published by RCT.

Leading autonomous solutions provider RCT has completed an automation project for a major mining company at its open-cut diamond mine in South Africa.

In 2019 RCT installed and commissioned its ControlMaster® Line-of-Site solution to a CAT 994 Wheel Loader which has been utilised to clear pit benches of debris falling from the crest of the bench above.

RCT’s locally-based Field Service Technician carried out commissioning works and empowered site equipment operators with the training necessary to efficiently manage the wheel loader. 

RCT’s Johannesburg-based Business Development Manager for Africa Mike Thomas said the project has been a great success. 

“South Africa’s Department of Mining Regulations prohibited any mining personnel to be in close proximity with the bench’s toe,” Mr Thomas said. 

“The Line-of-Sight technology meant equipment operators could stand at a safe distance in accordance with regulations and carry out their work as if they were sitting in the machine’s cab,” he said. 

“Our ControlMaster® automation technology integrated seamlessly into the wheel loaders operating system and carries out the same range of functions as specified by the Original Equipment Manufacturer.”
