Innovative Dragline Monitoring Systems and Technologies

CIM Edmonton 2008
Abstract This presentation will discuss several of the systems and processes that that been developed over the past several years and are now being utilized on by major mining companies on draglines in North America, Australia and South Africa. These technologies include GPS navigation systems; structural integrity monitoring systems; structural analysis studies to increase the dragline RSLs; and inspection and response strategies. The results are significant increases in dragline production and/or are reducing maintenance costs and downtime. Several cases studies will be included.
