METS Tech Talk: The Future Fleet – Driving Production and Productivity

Delve into the game-changing innovations leading a new era in management of mining’s mobile equipment.  

The fleet is one of the most significant costs for a typical mining operation, but also the source of significant innovation within the mining industry. Typically, the mining sector has been a global leader in the mobile equipment space and can boast to be one of the only industries to successfully introduce autonomous vehicles.  

Striving to boost productivity and drive efficiencies throughout the value chain, mining organisations are seeking to optimise their fleet through advancements in design, monitoring, autonomous systems, new energy sources and more. This Tech Talk brings you up to speed with the key solutions you should keep an eye out for.

The Tech Talks will explore:

  • The next steps in mobile equipment automation

  • Advancements in fleet management systems

  • Driving safety and reducing vehicle interactions

  • Electrifying the future fleet


Technology solutions to optimise existing truck capacity 

Carey West, Managing Director, Loadscan

The typical way mines increase capacity is to buy another truck. There is an alternate way to cost-effectively increase capacity without the need to acquire additional trucks and their associated costs.

Automated Load Volume Scanning helps mines to optimise capacity by maximising every load, increasing trucking factors and improving profits. In this short talk, learn how mines across the globe have increased haulage capacity by anywhere from 7.5% up to 25%, adding millions of dollars to their bottom lines!


Formula 1 Meets Mining - What Puts Your Drivers in Pole Position
Kim Eales, Co-Founder / Director, Resolution Systems

Our goal is to ensure that every operator is performing at their peak while simultaneously prioritising safety and asset health. This is done by being able to assess and monitor all the factors involved in the operational process while giving structured feedback to operators to improve their performance and productivity.


Top Level Condition Monitoring at the Lowest Cost – A Game Changer - OPTIME - Plug. Play. Predict.

Chris Lane, Global Mining Solutions Manager for Industry 4.0, Schaeffler

Condition monitoring can be expensive. Which is why up to 95% of all machines are only sporadically monitored, or often not at all. This can lead to unplanned breakdowns and downtime.

OPTIME from Schaeffler allows for comprehensive condition monitoring that is both easy and affordable. Thanks to its simple plug & play installation, OPTIME allows you to start monitoring hundreds of machines in just a few hours.

With the ability to work on almost all machines, OPTIME can detect potential damage, imbalances or misalignments – even weeks in advance. This enables you to easily and conveniently plan your long-term maintenance, manpower or spare-parts requirements.


Getting on board the fleet of the future 
Todd Peate, Chief Development Officer, Bis

The ‘bigger is bigger’ paradigm; dominated by large, capital-intensive mining fleets; is shifting. The industry is facing new challenges which are prompting some key trends we can’t ignore. What will this mean for the mining fleet of the future?


EnerBurn: Fuel Borne Engine Conditioning Catalyst

Simon Roycroft, General Manager, EnerBurn Asia Pacific 

The world we operate in today is a very challenging place, expectations imposed by stakeholders both locally and globally, have never been greater: Community, Government, Shareholders and the Environment. EnerBurn provides an immediate and highly effective solution, seamlessly improving fuel efficiency, emission and maintenance outcomes.
