Osborne loaders hook up to autonomous technology
The project involves RCT installing ControlMaster guidance automation packages on two CAT 2900 loaders to operate at the copper-gold underground mine.
RCT said it would also provide an underground teleremote cabin with analogue communications as well as a Fibre Optic Control Station (FOCS) located on the mine’s surface.
RCT’s Brisbane and Mount Isa branches carried out installation and commissioning works in mid-2019 and will deliver operator and maintenance training to site personnel.
The company says its ControlMaster® guidance technology reduces unplanned machine downtime from operator errors and improves safety for operators, who can manage the machines from remote locations.
