Technically advanced mining equipment is becoming a thing of preference by procurement experts as they not only help in increasing operational efficiency but also help in reducing the overall cost of operation.

Discover the most recent developments improving surface mining equipment’s productivity, dependability, and value.

How does India’s infrastructure push drive tech advancements in Surface mining techniques?

The government of India plans to implement new technologies and build digital infrastructure to support current and future mining operations, a move that would reduce the country’s dependency on imports. Technological advancements in Surface Mining are also making operations more productive. The surface miners built by Vermeer are equipped with GPS technology, which can be used to create a three-dimensional mining plan, allowing the machine to automatically cut to the plan with minimal operator involvement — maximising productivity on your site. In the AutoSteer system, when engaged, the surface miner will stay on a straight path and provide a cutting overlap as determined by the operator or surveyor, helping optimise productivity with each pass.

How do advanced construction tech and equipment aid eco-friendly road expansion amid local concerns?

The vibrancy of a thriving community is great for the local economy but poses challenges for urban development. Concerns include noise, air quality, traffic, and the impact of construction. Traditional excavation methods may disrupt the ecosystem, so innovative equipment is essential. The Vermeer Terrain Leveler SEM is ideal for these tasks, offering precise rock excavation with minimal noise and vibration compared to alternative methods. It enables you to work near buildings, maintain effective dust control, and produce manageable-sized materials for easy transportation and potential reuse.

How do modern equipment speed India’s infrastructure growth and “Transforming India” projects, and how are procurement experts leveraging this opportunity?

Maximising savings through procurement has always been important in the mining industry. As the sector continues to come out of a downturn, many companies are looking for new and more effective ways to improve operational efficiency in an unstable market. Large mining companies are now desiring technological advancement and environment-friendly equipment. Technically advanced mining equipment is becoming a thing of preference by procurement experts as they not only help increase operational efficiency but also help reduce the overall cost of operation.

How do sustainable practices impact projects, posing timeline challenges for project owners?

In addition to being safe and efficient, precision surface mining methods are helping miners create better sustainability practices. The vibrations caused by blasting can damage nearby infrastructure, including roads, utility lines, pipelines, and buildings. Surface excavation machines produce significantly less vibration and can work closer to existing infrastructure, helping to reduce the amount of mineral-rich material wasted. Those attributes, along with the reduction of the dust and vibration created by explosives, make surface excavation equipment more sustainable and environmentally friendly than drilling and blasting.

Which innovations are improving the efficiency, reliability, and cost-effectiveness of Surface mining equipment?

Vermeer’s latest Terrain Leveler, the T1255SSDD, is designed to cater to the unique needs of civil, quarry, and mining industries. It excels in hard rock excavation, road construction, and tunneling, enhancing productivity while reducing costs.

This equipment boasts reduced fuel consumption, emissions, and labor expenses compared to traditional methods. Its SmartTEC© electronic control system enables precise performance adjustments, real-time monitoring, and record-keeping, empowering operators to optimise productivity. Vermeer Telematics offers online tracking of machine productivity and job site management for Telematics-enabled equipment.

The T1255III Terrain Leveler SEM also offers optional GPS technology for creating mine plans. Operators can upload a plan to the GPS, allowing the machine to automatically follow it. This feature ensures precise surface cutting, ideal for road-smooth surfaces, drainage grading, or sloped haul roads.
