Mining companies need reliable heavy equipment and machinery 24/7 to achieve their objectives. Machine downtime has a major impact on profit and productivity in any mining operation. Described as a duration the machine cannot work when needed, machine downtime has negative ripple effects for any industry.
Poor maintenance or mechanical failure can lead to a significant reduction in productivity, according to the World Mining Association (WMA).
A mining shovel with higher operating weight results in better stability and durability. A bigger bucket capacity has a direct impact on the number of passes per truck. Examples of such equipment include the Cat® 6015 hydraulic mining shovel, which is the fastest machine in its size class.
The Caterpillar hydraulic oil cooling system is independent of engine cooling and includes a hydraulically driven variable speed fan. It provides cooling on demand to maintain optimum hydraulic fluid temperature and maximize fuel economy. This system also helps protect and extend the life of hydraulic components.
Boom lowering float valves reduce demand from hydraulic pumps by using gravity to lower the boom thus increasing efficiency and enabling pumps to support other functions simultaneously. This technology reduces demand from the engine, thus improving fuel efficiency and reduces noise and vibration in an internal combustion engine.
Terrain enables precision management of loading operations, increasing productivity and safety for miners working in rough and unstable conditions.
Miners benefit from working with heavy equipment which offer analytical capabilities to help them make better decisions about how best to use it.
