At Joy Global’s booth at MINExpo INTERNATIONAL®2016 in Las Vegas were the company’s new JoySmart Solutions; fully customizable service, technology and equipment offerings designed to deliver value to today’s mining operations.
JoySmart Solutions are integrations of Joy Global’s smart, connected products and systems, advanced analytics, and direct services customised to solve its customers’ toughest challenges.
Connected products deliver data to JoySmart experts, who partner with customers through Joy Global’s direct service network. The analytics produced deliver necessary information on machine health and performance, providing direction for the mine operation to help anticipate service needs and optimise machine performance to achieve or exceed their financial and operating goals.
"Reducing or eliminating unplanned downtime using predictive analytics and automated processes is essential to running a lean operation capable of adapting to today’s marketplace," said Joy Global president and CEO Ted Doheny. "Employing advanced analytics and technology, smart connected machines and direct service support, JoySmart Solutions are tailored to each customer’s specific challenges, to deliver the highest production, lowest cost per tonne and zero harm."
Using case study results and interactive booth elements focused on specific customer challenges, JoySmart Solutions experts at Joy Global’s MINExpo booth are showing attendees how the company’s offerings deliver value to customers worldwide.
