RockLogic™

Eliminate Hazards.  Maximise Speed and Productivity. 

The RockLogic intelligent rockbreaker control system maximises the speed, safety and efficiency of rockbreaking.  In turn, it significantly increases plant productivity, whilst reducing downtime and maintenance costs via the systems’ advanced suite of control modules.

Together these modules make up the RockLogic Core package (explained below).  The Core package includes all of the hardware and engineering required to enable remote rockbreaker operation, whilst providing an upgrade path for advanced feature modules.

Transmin has designed RockLogic for rockbreaker booms that operate above primary and/or secondary crushing stations – a common feature in most mining and minerals processing plants. However, RockLogic can also be adapted to smaller-scale hydraulic boom systems used in a wide range of industries, including construction, quarrying, forestry and recycling.

RockLogic™ Core Technology

Featuring the following modules

  • Improve safety and productivity with Remote Operation. Reduce personnel fatigue and heat stress. Remove personnel from flyrock, dust, noise and vibration hazards.
  • Control multiple rock breakers from one centralised Remote Operation. For high output mines, multiple rock breakers at different crushing stations can be controlled efficiently from one control centre, improving staff utilisation.
  • Improve rock breaker efficiency with Automated Movements. Go to park and deploy positions with the press of a button, minimising crushing delays.
  • Eliminate site damage with Collision Avoidance. Prevent unnecessary downtime by eliminating damage to rock breaker and surrounding plant equipment with customised collision avoidance software.
  • Increase throughput via improved communication between equipment with Plant & Process Integration. Signals to and from vehicles and plant equipment automatically retract the rock breaker for continuous crushing operation.
  • Reduce the rock breaker operating costs with Preventative Maintenance. Smoother rock breaker movements, cylinder sensing, data logging and collision avoidance minimises component wear and dramatically reduces on-site maintenance costs.
  • Integrate your safety procedures with SafeLogic*. A tailored programmable Safety System with accommodation for isolation gates and E-Stops.
  • ZoneLogic* is an economical version of the full RockLogic Automated Movements module.  It is suitable for retrofitting to all existing rockbreakers – including Transmin and third-party OEM’s.  ZoneLogic provides configurable slew limiting and automated slow-down zones to restrict the rockbreaker’s speed.

*All RockLogic™ systems (except ZoneLogic and SafeLogic) require the RockLogic™ Core package.

How Does RockLogic™ Work?

  • Improve safety by eliminating hazards
  • Improve production capacity/throughput
  • Increase rockbreaking efficiency
  • Improve staff utilisation and reduce reliance on fifo
  • Reduce downtime and maintenance costs
  • Achieve total integration with site operations
  • Remove operators from the hazardous environment of site and placed into a safe office environment.
  • Enhance situational awareness during remote operation with Human Machine Interface (HMI)
  • Utilises Transmin’s Remote Operation Centre slimline controller.
