Our mine automation systems cover all aspects of automation, from single equipment to full fleet control, reducing capital, people and energy intensity.

Safety, declining ore grades and the need for higher productivity are some of the challenges facing today's mining industry. Our mining equipment and tools, as well as our system solutions, are enabling mining companies to conduct their operations more efficiently and safely in both underground and surface mines.

Our mine automation systems, for example, cover all aspects of automation, from single equipment to full fleet control, reducing capital, people and energy intensity. In fact, our automation loading and hauling offering, Automine™, is one of the most comprehensive on the market. In addition, our remote monitoring enables supervisors to manage processes and communicate with surface and underground equipment from the safety of their control room.

Our rock drilling equipment, such as our blast hole rigs, are renowned for quality, reliability and productivity. Through extensive R&D, we produce machines engineered to provide the lowest possible cost per meter drilled and a low life-cycle cost. Furthermore, our vast network of service technicians across the globe and around the clock provides fail-safe support when and if needed.
