Underloading could be costing you a fortune!

Underloading requires additional truck movements to shift the same amount of material, increasing costs and reducing profits.

Our expertise in mining and technology enables us to help mines maximise productivity by optimising every load, thereby increasing trucking factors and improving profits.

Our load volume scanner accurately measures all loads and automatically generates 3D scan images that clearly indicate underloading, enabling corrective action (including operator training and coaching) to be taken.

Loaded to capacity
40 tonne payload = 22.2m³
= 10,000 truck loads

Slightly underloaded
34.5 tonne payload = 19.2m³
= 11,594 truck loads

Underloading requires 1,594 additional truck loads

Stated volumes were over-reported by 13.7% when measured against actual load volumes scanned with the MPS.

After implementing the MPS, actual loaded volumes increased by 15.8%.

Operator console and message board indicate underloading with bold visual warning indicators.

“We don’t know how we did without the Loadscan system in the thirteen years prior. We simply could not run the mine site without it now.”
