Increased Safety and Reduced Downtime
Safety is a primary objective for all modern mines. Increasingly, mine operators are turning to technology and remote operation to reduce the exposure to risk for operators and nearby personnel.
Developed specifically for hydraulic boom systems BoomSafe® combines automated movement sequences and collision prevention with simple remote operation connectivity for multiple rockbreakers to be operated from a single workstation.
Featuring easy onsite customisation and maintenance BoomSafe® will help you reduce downtime as movement sequences can be configured and modified by site-based maintenance staff using the user-friendly touchscreen.
Automate common or difficult movements and execute them with a single button press.
All boom movements are supervised by BoomSafe to avoid damage to the boom and surrounding infrastructure.
Control all your rockbreaker boom systems from a single workstation.
Smart Boom Technology to drive productivity
With BoomSafe® you will increase speed and precision, prevent collision and be able to operate all your rockbreaker boom systems from a single workstation.
In addition, it is inherently simple to maintain and customise by site personnel and maintenance can be completed on site without specialist technicians or TRS staff.
BoomSafe is available factory fitted on new Boom Systems however, you can benefit from its efficiencies immediately without purchasing a complete new boom system as BoomSafe can be retro-fitted to your existing boom regardless of the brand.
Recent installations in the WA Pilbara have proven that BoomSafe is the most reliable and cost-effective rockbreaker boom automation and remote operation system available in the market.
Automated Movement Commands such as ‘Park’, ‘Deploy’, ‘Tool Replacement Position’, ‘Rockbreaker Change Position’ or any other common or difficult movement sequences can be configured and modified by site-based maintenance staff using the user-friendly touchscreen.
Operators can execute the automated movements with a single button press, improving speed and precision. For example, when parking on a small platform, BoomSafe reduces the chance of equipment damage that could easily be caused by operator fatigue or error.
safety and collision prevention
At the heart of BoomSafe is an automated Collision Prevention System allowing your maintenance staff to set up a safe work area where the boom is allowed to operate.
All commands from the local Radio Control or Remote Operation System are supervised by BoomSafe to avoid damage to the boom and surrounding infrastructure and prevent movements which would result in the boom moving outside the safe work area.
BoomSafe’s Operator Assist function automatically corrects and adjusts the human operator-initiated movements to direct the boom back into the safe work area instead of halting the boom operation and requiring further operator intervention to continue.
Remotely control all of your rockbreaker boom systems from a single workstation. For larger sites, multiple workstations can share control of a group of booms on a first-come first-served basis.
Your site maintenance staff can set up and modify BoomSafe movement sequences and adjust the allowed area of operation when needed.
BoomSafe can also be integrated with other sensor systems on site, such as perimeter safety gates. It also has configurable inputs that can be set up to operate other plant equipment, for example, opening and closing a crusher cover.
If maintenance is required, all BoomSafe components can be replaced in minutes using only hand tools on site without specialist technicians or TRS staff. Sensors are mounted separately to the boom hydraulics and are easily accessible.
With BoomSafe you can set the direction, acceleration, maximum speed, and minimum creep speed for each joint of your hydraulic boom independently. This level of control enhances the boom system’s performance and reduces unnecessary wear and tear on mechanical components.
factory-fit or retro-fit
BoomSafe is available factory fitted on new Boom Systems or can be retrofitted to any brand of boom without making changes to hydraulic components.
