A new open-pit loading technology to improve excavation load cycles

By Greg Lanz

As the mining industry continues its climb out of this latest depression, open-pit mining organizations are striving to improve productivity wherever possible. One area that has large potential optimization gains is in the excavation load cycle, as inefficient truck spotting while loading and dumping can significantly impact a mine’s productivity. While this challenge has gone largely unresolved historically, new and emerging operator-assist technologies may finally provide the solution that mine operators need to improve productivity while loading and dumping.
