The burden of ore and rock transportation in open pit mines frequently falls on mine haul trucks. In an effort to reduce operating costs and preserve production levels, fewer, larger ultra-class haul trucks are sent into the pit. This means you cannot afford to have even one out of production for an extended period of time. The rigors these trucks endure eventually will take their toll on key engine and drivetrain components. While regular preventative maintenance is key to extending the life of a healthy haul truck fleet, your staff ultimately needs visibility into what ails your trucks.
The CIS 6500 online, condition-based monitoring system is installed onboard to continuously monitor vibration levels on vehicle components like transmission, torque converters, and traction drives providing maintenance staff can gain greater visibility into emerging drivetrain problems.
Additionally, by interfacing with the AMS Machinery Manager, teams can determine equipment faults and severity and correlate findings with other collected data such as oil samples – all within the same software environment.
