HARD-LINE will unveil a diverse lineup of new mining products at MINExpo 2021, taking place 13 – 15 September in Las Vegas, Nevada.
HARD-LINE is launching Auto Rockbreaker, which means, for the first time, operators will have the ability to automate many rockbreaking tasks. With Auto Rockbreaker, mining companies will be able to reduce maintenance and operator training costs, decrease wear and tear while extending the life of all rockbreakers. The system has many functions including auto deploy and auto park as well as other features making the operator-experience that much more intuitive with the company’s 3D User Interface.
HARD-LINE will be introducing the newest addition to its TeleOp suite, TeleOp Assist! With the upgraded add-on in Assist, this enhanced mode equips the base TeleOp system with intelligent steering assistance and collision detection to keep machines off walls while driving. Using real-time 3D LiDAR scans, Assist will automatically steer to handle the articulation adjustments required to keep the machine as centred as possible within the drift. With Assist’s adaptive technology, a pre-scan of the drift is not required – providing significant cost savings. The system does not require any training when moving from one level to another.
Brow Alert is an added level of protection for any underground mine. It serves as an add-on system designed to deter an operator from manually driving a vehicle past the brow line of a stope by using sensors and modules. The system is easy to install. It reduces risk of workplace injuries and fatalities, encourages accountability, and keeps operators a safe distance from the brow.
To find out more about these innovative products and other mining solutions, like the company’s Radio Remote Control (RRC), TeleOp system, vehicle conversion kits (drive-by-wire), and low-profile loader series (LP401 and LP301), visit HARD-LINE’s at booth 1013 in the North Hall.
