Personnel at a coal mine knew their operation methods were holding back production levels. We tracked the mine’s “feet mined in the first production hour,” to determine where production was falling short.
Our customer had aggressive production ramp-up requirements. Our 12ED25, developed specifically for Australia, allowed their mine to ramp up to full production with the first 10 days of operation.
Our customer was using basic diagnostics to monitor equipment but wanted to move beyond “breakdown and recovery” mode to a more predictive framework to optimize performance.
One of the biggest inefficiencies in the continuous mining process is waiting for a batch haulage unit to arrive and get into position. Understanding these delays is key to a successful mining operation, and is seldom obvious.
JoySmart Solutions helped our customer increase their equipment utilization rate from 50% to 70% and yielded more than 65% increase in production.
JoySmart Solutions allowed us to help our customer achieve the targeted 92% shovel availability for their 4100XPC DC and 4100XPC AC shovels eight weeks in a row.
JoySmart Solutions helped our customer resolve excessive startup torque on a main production underground-to-surface conveyor system, resolving the situation quickly and ensuring no costly equipment was damaged.
