BMT WBM Joins Forces with Fintech S.A.
BMT WBM, a subsidiary of BMT Group Ltd, and Fintech S.A., based in Santiago, Chile, have announced a collaboration to provide the South American mining region with an enhanced solution to help maximise operational efficiencies and increase productivity levels.
BMT’s unique Pulse TerraMetrix RS machine health, production and payload management system coupled with Fintech’s proven track record of providing maintenance and system integration capabilities allows this newly formed collaboration to provide a comprehensive service for its customers.
Since signing the agreement the partnership has successfully deployed systems for Minera Escondida which currently has two open pit copper mines in the Atacama Desert, northern Chile and Codelco’s Radimiro Tomic (RT) Mine in Chile. Unlike other payload monitoring systems which apply electrical parameter estimation techniques to approximate the payload, the Pulse TerraMetrix system employs a loadcell based device and directly measures the inertial and dynamic loads applied to the dipper. As a result, more accurate payload measurement is maintained, even under severe dynamic loading conditions.
