Introduced 40 years ago as mining’s first computer-based dispatching tool, the DISPATCH® Fleet Management System (FMS) revolutionized the way mines work in real time. Today, the DISPATCH system is the most trusted FMS in the industry.
Modular Mining develops intelligent software solutions to facilitate operations, planning, maintenance, and safety in the mining industry.
The company couples its IntelliMine® suite of products with superior customer care and value-add services, including the Performance Assurance and Mine Plan Compliance programs, to ensure every customer receives maximum, ongoing value-in-use from their Modular Mining investments.
End-to-end fleet management for surface and underground mining operations
Modular MIning’s DISPATCH® fleet management system (FMS) introduced the concept of computerised dispatching to the mining industry. Today, surface mines of all size and type rely on the DISPATCH FMS to optimize their haulage cycles, maximize production, and increase equipment utilization. Considered the industry standard for fleet management systems, Modular Mining’s customers have reported productivity improvements ranging from 5% to 34%, with an average improvement of 11%, for more than 35 years.
Specifically designed to address the unique challenges of the underground mining environment, the DISPATCH Underground FMS automates all development and production processes and supports all common underground mining methodologies.
The DISPATCH Underground FMS gives mines the visibility they need to track, manage and efficiently utilize mobile equipment below the surface.
High-precision GPS for accurate guidance capabilities
The ProVision® machine guidance solution utilizes high-precision GPS technology to provide continuous navigation and guidance to equipment operators, increasing productivity and the realization of planned targets and tasks.
The solution enables operators to position their buckets, blades and components to within 1cm of the intended location, resulting in decreased dirty loads, more accurate material blending, and more effective blasts.
The ProVision solution is available for shovels, loaders, dozers, and drills. The new ProVision Guided Spotting system, available for shovels and trucks, guides truck operators as they reverse toward a shovel for loading, helping to eliminate shovel hang time, truck re-spotting, and queueing at the shovel.
Collision awareness solutions for increased workplace safety
The MineAlert™ Collision Awareness system (CAS), an early warning system that alerts the equipment operator of potential collisions with other CAS-equipped vehicles, is designed to improve operator awareness and reduce vehicle-to-vehicle collisions.
Predictive algorithms analyze the location, speed, and trajectory of all vehicles in the monitored vicinity and generate warnings and alarms only when hazardous or potentially hazardous conditions exist.
Unlike other collision awareness systems on the market, Modular’s CAS focuses on minimizing false or nuisance alarms to provide operators with critical decision-making safety information only when it matters.
Proactive, real-time equipment maintenance management for increased availability
The MineCare® maintenance management solution enables mines to increase fleet availability and uptime while reducing mobile equipment lifecycle costs.
The latest version of Modular’s real-time maintenance management product, MineCare 3 Cloud, represents the company’s initial entry into the Cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) market.
The MineCare 3 Cloud system provides an alternative to the traditional on-site software installation model, which reduces costly capital expenses such as server hardware.
About Modular Mining
In 1979, Modular Mining released the DISPATCH fleet management system, marking the first computerized dispatching solution for the mining industry.
Four decades later, the company has expanded in size and capability, with more than 800 employees in ten regions, supporting all major mining locales.
Modular Mining’s systems have been deployed at more than 250 globally-distributed sites, including 18 of the 20 largest mines in the world.
Modular’s Collision Awareness System, an integral part of our MineAlert™ suite of Safety Management tools, helps your people make the right decisions at the right time.
The MineCare® solution improves every aspect of the maintenance management process, providing the information and tools you need to monitor the health of your entire fleet in real-time.
Open pit mines around the world have used ProVision® machine guidance systems to increase their total tons moved, improve the accuracy of material movement, and decrease costs associated with working outside of the mine plan for more than 20 years.
Predictive Component Monitoring Helps South American Coal Mine Drive an Additional 11.6% in Shovel Availability
Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) specify intervals at which the components in their heavy mining equipment should be replaced to prevent component failure or operator injury.
Fleet management systems (FMSs) are deployed at the majority of open-pit mines, where the systems provide numerous operational efficiencies and productivity gains.
