Surface and underground mining

We continually explore and exploit the possibilities of new technologies to improve productivity whilst reducing time and cost and increasing safety.Our senior specialists partner you on the journey to define, communicate and deliver on the business case. Our expert, intelligent approach enables us to identify the root causes of problems and provide definitive solutions. 

The benefits are improved quality, robustness, reliability and availability of machinery; greater safety; avoidance of unexpected operational problems, extended life and lower life cycle operating and maintenance costs.

Solutions

Machine design

Surface and underground mining operations depend on high-productivity machines and we understand that, in an industry with a long heritage of innovation, these must constantly evolve to meet market and regulatory needs.

Specifications

Our customers constantly strive to improve productivity by investing in innovative and complex mining machines and systems.

Design audits

Our design audits help customers to improve safety, extend structure and machinery life, verify conformance with specification and identify operational risk.

Project management, quality assurance, inspection, commissioning

The ability to identify each and every opportunity available to a mining project demands a breadth of experience.

Asset management

We constantly look to innovate ways in which we monitor, measure, analyse and improve your assets’ performance. We set out to find the ‘win-wins’ where machine and operator productivity increases but so too do machine health and operator safety.

Automation and robotics

The high volumes and hazards associated with bulk handling of mined materials, as well as the need to maximise productivity, create a powerful case for the use of automation and robotics.

Advanced simulation services

We specialise in the mathematical modelling and simulation of engineering problems related to surface and underground mining equipment. This helps our customers to safely and accurately assess operational issues prior to implementation.

Environmental services

We have a long history of helping mine operators to successfully address environmental and water management issues.

Test and measurement

Our instrumentation and recording equipment helps our mining customers to accurately measure critical parameters such as loads, stresses and hydraulic pressures.

Expert witness advice, arbitration

We provide insurance companies, legal firms, loss adjusters, engineers and mine managers with independent, expert opinion on a broad range of technical issues, but typically in relation to industrial accidents and machinery failure.
