Cavotec’s Breida Console uses easy, automatically adjusted electronic controls to support the operator’s natural seated position. It provides greater comfort, reduces fatigue and injury, and ultimately improves efficiency and productivity.
“It also addresses a serious skill shortage caused by injury, lack of training and an aging workforce,” said Geoff Davis from Cavotec’s Technical Sales. “Even at this early stage, the industry has embraced the Breida Console, with BHP Blackwater, BHP Norwich Park and Anglo Coal having installed the chairs.”
Queensland also was the launch pad for Cavotec’s groundbreaking Zone Zero radio remote control technology – the first of its kind to allow in-zone battery replacement. Zone Zero offers cordless mobility, precision and safety when operating heavy mining equipment, without the risk of explosion caused by static or electric arcs in volatile underground conditions.
“Our programmable Zone Zero technology quenches arcs and charges with an enclosure and switches that are specifically certified for use with explosives.” Mr Rostagno said.
“It is no longer necessary to carry replacement equipment and the smaller, lighter resin-free receiver units lend themselves to confined workspaces. With the backing of the technology’s Australian certification, this will translate directly to financial, operational and OH&S gains for end users”.
Industry delegates are invited to examine Cavotec’s Zone Zero and Breida Console technologies, and see demonstrations first hand at the QME Mine Expo in Mackay this July.
