Underground Manager 2.0 is the latest generation of Epiroc's software for drilling process administration in mining and tunneling projects. It is a powerful tool for planning, evaluation and reporting of operational information. Log files and drill plans can be transferred to and from the rig through USB or WiFi, with improved integration possibilities with other systems through IREDES format.
In the planning phase it is possible to import CAD-files (.dxf) into the software to edit and create a drill plan in a format compatible with the drill rig's control system. This drill plan is then transferred to the rig either on a USB-stick or wirelessly via RRA (Rig Remote Access). The ABC Total option with drill plan handling also enables the operator to edit the hole sequence directly on the touch screen in the cabin of the rig if needed.
Data is key in our modern world. Today, massive data amounts are being generated in daily operations. It only turns into true value if retrieved, stored and analyzed in a timely manner.
6th Sense Insight is a product family that includes solutions for collecting, transferring, storing, visualizing and analyzing the data, transforming it into useful information for data based decision making. Read more about 6th Sense.
During the drilling process, the control system stores log files with operational data from the rig. These log files can then be transferred back to the Underground Manager 2.0 computer software via USB or wirelessly via RRA (Rig Remote Access).
In the summary of the data from the rig, the user is given information about total time drilled, average round cycle time, average pull length, estimated time to completion and much more. This operational data is very valuable for optimization and quality control of mining and tunneling operations. The collected data can also be exported to a report, for example in PDF-format for easy viewing.
