  • Cat Health

    Through regular monitoring of machine conditions, mines can adopt a more proactive approach to maintenance and repair. Equipment health data is a key contributor to that approach. Data helps mines identify equipment problems long before failure.

    Accessing the right data at the right time is critical to improving operational intelligence and machine predictive analysis. Cat® MineStar™ Health helps you meet that need by connecting you to your machines and delivering that important information. The MineStar Health portfolio set consists of Connectivity Enablers that collect, convert and transmit equipment data; and Applications that visualize, analyze and report health equipment data.

  • Cat 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. 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.
