ShovelMetrics™ Case Studies

Payload Monitoring in A Copper Mine


Payload Monitoring


How accurate is ShovelMetrics™ Payload Monitoring? In this field study, we compare data collected from a ShovelMetrics™ system installed on a face shovel working at a Copper mine to the numbers reported by the mine’s on-board truck scales.

In this case study you will understand:

  • How mine operators can use ShovelMetrics™ Payload Monitoring to evaluate shovel productivity and realize significant cost savings.

  • How to conceptualize and calculate productivity on shovels and trucks.

  • How the Copper mine in our case study can prevent an annual production loss of ~USD$11 million by collecting and acting on ShovelMetrics™ data.
