Innovation In Action
Nprime was recently contracted by a mining company to create a bespoke sensor solution to better understand and validate tool pick loads as the tooth impacts with the rock face on a hard rock mining tool. This measurement included shear loads across the tooth and also the impact load as it interacts with the rock face. The challenges of this project were the limited space, speed of acquisition system, powering the system. In this presentation, Nprime will explain the obstacles that were encountered and the various approaches that were trailed before a final successful solution was created. This measurement solution is widely used in the mining industry to better understand the loads involved at the rock face of mining tools.
