From Blast Maker software and hardware to a digital mine

Of particular importance is the fact that digital technologies, in particular PTC “Blast Maker”, provide real information about mine, taking into account all the heterogeneities in real time. We consider this a great achievement.

Energy intensity is a generalised, universal indicator that is present in all mining processes associated with rock destruction and, indirectly, in processes associated with scooping and moving blasted rock, which allows monitoring and control of all the main stages of the open cast mining cycle in a single criteria.

The completeness of information on the structure and heterogeneity of the massif, the use of mining equipment, the main parameters and operating modes of the equipment, provides a real opportunity to create a digital quarry and optimise all processes of open cast mining.
