Sandvik introduces new OptiMine features at Goldcorp #DisruptMining event

Continuing the development of its award-winning OptiMine® platform, Sandvik is introducing the newest OptiMine® features, focused on analytics and visualisation, at Goldcorp’s #DisruptMining event. “More and more, the mining industry is recognising the value of information to get the most out of their operations,” said Petri Mannonen, OptiMine® Product Line Manager, Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology. “Visualising – and improving operations – in real time changes the game. We’re continuously working with our customers to enhance and deliver the most comprehensive set of optimisation tools for the industry.” The new features can be summarised as follows:

Location-Based Analytics – Mines can now analyse and visualise events and operations on a location basis. This module gives real-time information to resolve location-based constraints, and a better understanding of the source of issues.

Smart Scheduler – This enhanced version of the OptiMine® Scheduler is teachable. The customer sets rules for the system based on their operations. Then the Smart Scheduler alerts the customer when activities happen that break those rules, and gives information about the activity. This means less repetitive, manual work for operators.

Enhanced 3D Mine Visualisation – This feature builds on the original OptiMine® mine visualisation tool, including a new browser-based platform, contemporary user-friendly interface, and more advanced filtering and search tools. The 3D mine visualisation delivers a quicker, easier way to search for, and view, assets.

#DisruptMining highlights innovators and technology leaders in the mining industry. “Sandvik shares Goldcorp’s vision in supporting entrepreneurs as they work to develop disruptive innovations for the mining industry, delivering safe, sustainable and productive mines for the future.”
