It´s about knowing. Not guessing.

 Now you can equip your tools and attachments with a 6th Sense.

6th Sense is Epiroc's answer to the mining and construction industries need for digitalization as an enabler for safety and productivity gains. A successful and efficient operation depends on safe methods, maximizing productivity, reducing downtime and controlling costs.

 

Keeping track of drilling tool inventory is a challenge for most companies in the industry. Relying on experience has been one way, but with varying degrees of accuracy. Not knowing means that drilling tools may be changed too early or too late, creating inefficiency in the drilling operations. In the worst case scenario – the machines stand still due to empty inventory, affecting both productivity and safety. For very remote sites it is even more critical to have an accurate inventory calculation, as the delivery lead times can be very long.

 

We know this and our goal is to help our customers implement that extra sense in their operation, making them smart, safe and seamless.

With a 6th Sense you know how your drilling tools perform
