Micromine and Carlson strengthen partnership

Micromine and Carlson Software have announced that Pitram, Micromine’s fleet-management and mine-operations solution for underground mines, will be integrated with Carlson's machine-control solutions.

Micromine and Carlson strengthen partnership

Introduced to the market in 1997, Carlson's machine-control solutions use high-precision GNSS for machine guidance in mining, landfill, dredging and 3-D drilling applications. Pitram is a software package for the management, control and process improvement of mining operations. It is used to record and process equipment, personnel, locations and materials data, providing an overall view of mine status, thereby increasing control and efficiency.

The integration of the two systems will increase Pitram's surface fleet management capabilities by providing high-precision machine guidance. Equipment operators will now be able to perform activities such as drilling, excavation and loading more precisely, ensuring objectives are achieved more efficiently.

Micromine chief operating officer, Michael Layng, said: "Micromine's partnership with Carlson will provide significant benefits to both existing and future Pitram customers globally. Through the introduction of machine guidance within Pitram, we are strengthening the solution's fleet management capabilities."
