Epiroc sets the standard of loader automation

October 14, 2019

Epiroc’s Scooptram Automation Total is the highest level of loader automation, bringing new standards of productivity and safety to underground mining. Multi machine loader automation enabled by the Traffic Management System, sets the new standard in safety and productivity by creating a common information environment that controls multiple fleet of loaders.
The Traffic Management system is the core of Epiroc’s Scooptram Automation Total package. This system operates the fleet and eliminates the risk of collisions in common drifts. The automation area is fully isolated with safety barriers that shuts off the system if personnel or unauthorized vehicles accidently enter. It is possible to bring new vehicles into the area and add them to the Traffic Management System without stopping the production, using the check-in/check-out procedure.
