Our solutions

Smart Mine’s innovative solutions consist of three products: Smart Conveyor, Smart Inspection, and Smart Lockout. Click here for an overview of our solutions!

Our Smart Conveyor is the future of idler roller monitoring, utilising cloud-based temperature sensors to identify problem areas along conveyor belts. The alarm system eliminates the need for manual problem identification and provides instant location detection. Furthermore, it can reduce unplanned maintenance, thereby increasing asset availability in the mining operation. It is the most scalable conveyor belt monitoring system available, allowing up to 5 000 sensors per kilometre. It is currently used in several locations in South Africa and is also suitable for various industries such as cement, logistics, sugar, and paper.

Smart Inspection is a locally developed web app-based system that streamlines inspection processes, eliminates paper-based forms, and reduces errors. It is customisable to meet each business’ specific needs.

Smart Lockout supports the isolation energy process in specific areas for asset maintenance, which is often located at a distance from the energy source. The solution ensures the safety of workers by preventing the accidental startup of machinery during maintenance or repair work, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries.
