The newly launched Cat 992 Wheel Loader increases productivity by up to 32%. It saves maintenance costs by up to 10% and has proven in field testing up to 48% higher payload-per-fuel economy in instances where a four-pass match to 90.7-tonne (100-ton) trucks was obtained vs five passes with the 992K.
Caterpillar is dedicated to assisting clients with their energy transitions, and the MINEXPO exhibit will feature a variety of renewable and storable power demonstrations, including the Cat Microgrid system. The Cat 3516 engine will have dynamic gas blending (DGB), which will allow miners to conserve fuel and cut emissions while maintaining diesel performance.
Achieving sustainable goals necessitates mining always striving for operational excellence. Fully optimizing operations ensures the greatest level of safety and productivity at the lowest feasible cost and environmental effect.
Many exhibitors will get their first opportunity to learn more about the recently released Cat MineStar Edge at MINExpo. It gives visibility to the whole mining operation, demonstrating how early-stage operations affect those farther down the value chain. MineStar Edge enables the measurement, management, analysis, and improvement of the whole mining operation.
The Cat MineStar Detect Driver Safety System (DSS) demonstrates how technology may improve mine site safety by monitoring eye-closure and head posture and alerting the driver through seat vibration and/or auditory warning when weariness or distraction is detected. DSS has been found to lower 97 percent of the most severe tiredness events, 80% of ordinary fatigue events, and 91% of distraction events.
The refurbished Cat C175-16 engine on exhibition, which generates up to 2 550 kW (3,420 hp) and highlights Caterpillar’s repair services expertise, lowers total owning and operating expenses.
Members of the MineStar Health team will also be on hand to demonstrate to participants how connecting the machine to the office increases equipment availability and dependability. By collecting equipment data, monitoring important machine parameters, receiving real-time alerts, evaluating operating trends and patterns, forecasting failures, and providing repair suggestions, the service aids in proactive maintenance services and predictive equipment analysis.
In addition to teams of personnel with the machine and technological knowledge, Cat Financial and Cat Solutions experts will be on hand to give information on safety, fleet management, and product options that may be integrated into whole site solutions.
A ThoroughTec Simulation training will help to point out the 7495 Electric Rope Shovel. Furthermore, participants will be able to interact with two next-generation machine cabins – one for mining trucks and another for the 6060 hydraulic mining shovel – through real cabs on exhibition.
