2019 HAULAGE & LOADING PREVIEW FEBRUARY 2019 • E&MJ 37 cialized products ranging from advanced wheels and rims available to the Tyre- Sense TPMS and peripheral technology system that sets new standards for tire monitoring and asset management. With innovative, integrated technologies for electrification, automation and digiti- zation across the entire life cycle, Siemens helps customers increase productivity and improve the reliability, safety, and effi- ciency of products, processes and plants. Siemens mobile mining combines innova- tive, custom system solutions for electric rope shovels, haul trucks and draglines with worldwide aftersales support. SmithCo offers Mine Series 60-ton to 100-ton side-dump trailers and they can be pulled in train for additional payloads. Truck and trailer is an ideal haulage solu- tion for distance hauling, according to SmithCo. Smaller haul roads open the possibilities of accessing those satellite mine sites that have been cost prohibitive before, SmithCo said. Southwestern Scale is an industry lead- ing provider of weighing systems, solu- tions and services for mining operations, including haulage and loading environ- ments. These solutions and services include truck scales, weight study ser- vices, static and in-motion scales for haul trucks and rail cars, cathode production scales, belt scales, weight-based hopper and batching solutions, and preventive maintenance services. Strata Worldwide's HazardAvert proximi- ty-detection and collision-avoidance sys- tem is designed specifically to overcome the most-prevalent accidents experienced in surface operations. The system pro- motes safer work practices through in- creased safety awareness and modified worker behavior. It helps prevent vehi- cle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian accidents and collisions, which improves overall mine productivity, Strata said. Symbioticware provides an industrial in- dustry of things (IoT) hardware and soft- ware platform to help customers unlock, collect and analyze valuable data from their industrial mobile and fixed assets to help improve business outcomes based on optimizing productivity. With more than 22 years in business, To- tal Power is a specialist in fuel additives and fuel management/accounting sys- tems for open-pit and underground min- ing operations. They optimize fuel burn, emission reduction and fuel data analy- sis, Total Power said. TowHaul is a leading manufacturer of off-road lowboys and haul-truck recovery systems for the mining industry. Equip- ment mobility is crucial in the fast-paced mining environment and TowHaul's in- novative solutions can help a customer decrease their costs and increase their mobility, according to the company. Vulcan OnBoard Scales has weighing solu- tions for haulage vehicles. Customers can weigh their payload at the pickup point while also tracking truck-frame fatigue. It offers model-specific onboard weigh- ing solutions for high-capacity dump and articulated dump trucks carrying greater than 20 tons. The scales include a me- ter in the cab of the truck and warning options to let the loader know when the maximum capacity has been reached. The Walz Scale Scanner is a single-source supplier for volumetric measurement sys- tems. Its extensive management systems provide operations with advanced tools for managing vehicle, belt and stockpile volumes. Volumetric load scanners offer an effective solution for tangible weigh- ing systems. Next level conveyor performance Voith BeltGenius Voith BeltGenius is the new product family for monitoring, benchmarking and optimization of conveying systems. It enables mining companies to establish full transparency regarding their performance through the use of intelligent sensors and software technologies.
