Right now, fleets of Cat machines — like mining trucks and underground loaders, dozers and drills — are doing real work and delivering real results on mines around the world. Many are using Cat MineStar technology to work autonomously — without an operator onboard. And that number continues to grow.
The results are game-changing. Workers are safer, machines are moving more efficiently, operations are more consistent and productive, equipment lasts longer — and mines are more profitable.
Most people recognize Caterpillar as a global leader when it comes to manufacturing heavy equipment for the mining industry. But what may come as a surprise to some is that the technology that goes along with that big yellow iron is built by Caterpillar, too. Our Cat MineStar Solutions suite of mining technologies is both groundbreaking and proven. We’re committed to remaining at the forefront of technology innovation and growing our industry-leading solutions.
Mining technology and autonomy are game-changers that take the productivity and safety of our customers’ operations to unprecedented levels. And there’s no better way to appreciate the real benefits of what technology can deliver than by hearing from the people who use it every day and seeing solutions at work in challenging mining environments — from the Canadian Oil Sands to deep underground in Australia.
How often do you get to see the real benefits of the work you do? When you work in mining automation technology, you’ll see the real impact of your solutions — in a big way. There’s no question that the success we’ve had in the technology space over these last four decades has been because of the people on our team. We employ hundreds of talented software developers, researchers, computer engineers and data analysts who are at the top of their fields.
Cat technology solutions can monitor machines and people, manage their performance and, in many cases, automate the work. Our customers rely on them for great gains in efficiency, productivity and safety. But how do they work? How does a giant truck operate with no one behind the wheel? How do you track people working miles underground? How can you tell when an operator is tired? Let us show you how we do it.
Cat technology solutions are doing real work on mine sites around the world every day and delivering significant results to our mining customers — from improvements in efficiency and increases in productivity to the near-elimination of safety incidents due to operator fatigue. In particular, the results delivered by our autonomous haulage solutions are unprecedented — and growing.
Implementing autonomous technologies can be a major undertaking. It helps to have a partner with proven solutions, decades of experience and a team of experts — like Caterpillar. Our industry-leading autonomy solutions for dozing, drilling, loading and hauling set the standard for safe, productive operations.
Our customers are always focused on mining better — and we’re here to help. Together we’re mining smarter, solving problems, building solutions and discovering what’s possible. We’re an equipment provider, a technology leader and a partner in performance. We take pride in the products and solutions we deliver and are grateful our customers choose to partner with us in so many ways.
