HARD-LINE to release Auto Rockbreaker

Global Mining Review,

HARD-LINE are releasing its next mining breakthrough with Auto Rockbreaker. This product gives operators the ability to automate many rock-breaking tasks that have never been done before. One operator can control multiple booms, quickly switching between sites as needed all with the touch of a button.

“We have spent years to finally bring this ground-breaking product to market,” says Philippe Pelland, HARD-LINE’s VP of Sales. “This system will allow users to autonomously deploy, park, and manoeuvre their hammer at a TeleOp Control station by simply pressing a button on our user-friendly interface.”

Auto Rockbreaker uses a suite of sensors, such as LiDAR and cameras to see the environment. The sensor information is then processed by cutting-edge computer vision and machine learning algorithms to understand the environment.

Rockbreaker Auto benefits:

  • Increases production.
  • Decreases operating costs.
  • Removes operators from dangerous environments.
  • Provides solutions for limited visibility, poor depth perception, and high latency.
  • Does not require a highly trained operator to manoeuvre a rockbreaker efficiently and safely.
  • Designed to be retrofitted for existing rock-breakers.
  • Compatible with all rock-breaker makes and models.

With self-contained hardware, the entire system is housed at the breaker site. HARD-LINE is looking to partner with more mine sites to further enhance Auto Rockbreaker.

Visit HARD-LINE at booth #1013 in the North Hall at MINExpo and book a simulation of Auto Rockbreaker at the event. Learn more about Auto Rockbreaker at MINExpo on 14 September at 10:30 a.m. in room N242, where the company will be hosting a brief press conference.
