SiteMonitor user conference
3D Laser Mapping announce two-day mining conference to demonstrate their latest monitoring solution
NOTTINGHAM-based 3D Laser Mapping have announced a new user conference to demonstrate their state-of-the-art monitoring solution, SiteMonitor. The two-day event, which will take place from 25–26 July 2012 in Mokopane, South Africa, will combine technical demonstrations, user presentations and practical hands-on sessions.
Developed by 3D Laser Mapping Ltd, SiteMonitor combines advanced laser scanning technology with powerful, simple-to-use software in a modular system that gives the user the ability to exploit the potential of laser scanning for measuring change and improving mine safety.
Typically used in open-pit mines for the continuous or periodic stability monitoring of unstable high walls, it is available as a complete monitoring solution or a stand-alone software package.
Users of SiteMonitor systems can select from the latest V-Line range of laser scanners from Riegl, including the new long-range VZ-4000. All scanners offer online full-waveform analysis, digital processing and exceptional data-capture rates, even with poor visibility.
Data captured by the laser scanner are analysed using SiteMonitor software, which tracks and compares measurements over time.
3D Laser Mapping say SiteMonitor systems are in use around the world, automatically detecting tiny movements in slopes and walls in open-pit mines, and calculating volume measurements for production management and operational monitoring.
Aimed at both existing and potential users of SiteMonitor, the two-day user conference will be co-hosted by Anglo American Platinum and will include a demonstration of the new long-range Riegl VZ-4000 unit.
Places at the event are limited and attendance will be by invitation only.
