Material Tracking with Terrain

Material Tracking with Cat® Terrain: Getting the Right Material to the Right Place 

 

Most mine sites work with more than a dozen types of ore, while some handle nearly 100 different materials. Keeping track of it all is a challenging job, but a vital one that needs to be done right. A single load of valuable ore sent to a dumpsite instead of a crusher can cost tens of thousands of dollars in lost revenue.

Material tracking technologies, including Cat® Terrain, are helping mine sites around the world manage this important task with greater accuracy and less chance for error. They ensure the right material makes it to the right place at the right time — improving bottom-line results.

Cat Terrain Monitors Machines and Materials

Part of Cat MineStar™, Cat Terrain for loading monitors material movement and type to ensure material is moved to the proper location. It works together with Cat Fleet to monitor machine locations. The ability to follow material destinations on a truck-by-truck basis allows detailed stockpile management and helps to prevent costly misroutes.

Wheel Loader Ore Control

Recently added features in Cat Terrain for loading, monitor and record wheel loader production cycles at the ROM pad and crusher. In conjunction with Cat Fleet, they provide automatic updates of mined material, so operators don’t have to manually select and load an ore control file. 

Improve Dozer Production Tracking

Cat Terrain for grading offers an improved dozer production recording accuracy as well, that summarizes the amount of material being moved by individual machines or your entire dozer fleet. It tracks the total volume of material moved to deliver more accurate productivity measurements for every shift.

Whole-Fleet Capabilities

Cat Terrain for loading and grading work with data from all types of assets and equipment — including shovels and excavators, wheel loaders, dozers, motor graders, wheel dozers and more— helping you reduce cost per ton, enhance productivity and boost overall site profitability.
