Innovative mining software and machine control solutions
Our Carlson Mining platform is a technically advanced mining software for design and efficient operation of mines worldwide.
Our machine control solutions enable clients to reduce idle time and increase production rates, which minimises costs while enhancing efficiency.
We are the largest provider of mine software for coal mines in the US and are becoming internationally recognised. Carlson Mining 2018 modules are compatible with AutoCAD®, versions 2010 to current, and are available with IntelliCAD® 8.3 built-in.
Laser scanning systems for the mining industry
Carlson has always had a traditional focus on the mining industry with software, hardware and machine control solutions.
However, with the recent acquisition of the mining, mapping and module product lines from Renishaw in 2017, we now have the ability to provide laser systems, which enhance our product portfolio and allow us to provide more comprehensive solutions to our users.
With the new in-house capabilities, Carlson Software can also now work in other industries, including marine hydrographic, military, highways traffic management, altimetry and security.
Machine control solutions for 3D drilling applications
Carlson Software’s Machine Control solutions regulate global positioning and 3D machine control applications through open standards, easy-to-use software interfaces and a cost-efficient price/performance proposition for the mining, landfill and construction sectors.
We aim to meet the needs of mining, construction and 3D drilling markets with state-of-the-art 3D machine guidance, positioning, monitoring, reporting and production analysis solutions.

This case study refers to how Dallas Hydraulics added the Carlson Boretrak Survey procedure into the company manual to share with their branch mines worldwide.
The Kidd Creek copper/zinc mine is located near Timmins in Ontario, Canada. Along with copper and zinc, it produces indium, silver-bearing slimes, nickel-copper carbonate, liquid SO₂ and sulphuric acid.
Olympic Dam is a huge mining centre in South Australia, 560km north-west of Adelaide. The site hosts an underground mine and an integrated metallurgical processing plant.
This acquisition enhances Carlson’s existing offerings for the benefit of its customers, including former Renishaw customers.
