Smart Mine’s innovative solutions consist of four products: Smart Conveyor, Stop-Start Retrofit, 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.
Installed on heavy-duty mine equipment, the Stop-Start Retrofit solution detects a lack of motion and stops the engine. It plays an imperative role in reducing CO2 emissions and supports a mine’s decarbonisation goals.
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.
Smart Mine previously operated primarily in Brazil and Chile in South America until it landed its first South African deal in 2019. The company later joined the Robert Bosch brand and then became a company within Tectra Automation. Tectra Automation is a leader in pneumatic and automation technologies, and specialises in building smarter, more efficient industrial and factory automation solutions.
Smart Mine has experienced some remarkable milestones since its inception. One achievement that stands out was its ability to install its first Smart Conveyor solution in Africa despite the challenges faced at the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Read more about the project here.
Since the installation, the company has received an influx of enquiries and interest from potential clients. The success of Smart Conveyor has proven to be a game-changer for the mining industry.
