Terrain for Loading

Cat® MineStar™ Terrain for Loading

Mine site output depends on efficient loading and hauling. Cat® MineStar Terrain for loading makes those operations more productive while providing accurate feedback to key personnel. It shows operators the type of material and the exact volume that is being loaded into trucks and crushers. Real-time feedback on payloads and design plan progress helps managers track materials and plan future operations.

Terrain for loading is a machine guidance system that delivers real-time data in the cab—on everything from bucket positioning and bench height to ore bodies and volume of material cut and filled. That enables every operator to maximize machine efficiency, leading to better material management, more accurate grades and less rework and wear.
