LoadScan reported Hindustan Zinc purchased two LVS-3CMX load volume scanners for its Zawar mine complex, bringing the total to four owned by the miner. At its Rajpua-Dariba mine, the miner uses a custom-mounted LVS-3CMX model underground to measure ore, and a LVS-3BMP positioned at the portal to measure truck loads. The Loadscan LVS is the original non-contact, automated drive-through truck-load measurement instrument, Loadscan reported. As a target vehicle drives under the scanner, the LVS scans the load and creates a 3D model.
