Portable HSI plant
Terex Minerals Processing Systems expanded its CR Series portable plant line
with the addition of the Terex Cedarapids
CRH1316 horizontal shaft impact crushing plant. The large-capacity electric plant
boasts a large undercrusher vibrating pan to accept discharge material and convey it to the straight-line product conveyor. The design is
said to eliminate impact damage to the conveyor belt and to maintain belt tension to prevent slippage while providing a large discharge
opening to prevent blockages. Options include a self-cleaning magnet, electrical panel with hydraulic lift, hinged hopper extensions, and
hydraulic run-on jacks.

Shovel simulator training
Immersive Technologies released VirtualGround3.0 as part of its Cat 7495
Rope Shovel simulator. Developed to increase operator training effectiveness,
safety, and productivity, the release was completed under an alliance between
the two companies. It is designed provide realistic material response, digging
resistance, and visual appearance. Mine sites using the simulation software are
also now able to assess the effectiveness of their rope shovel operators through a
Global Operator Benchmarking System (GOBS), which allows the operator to
benchmark against global norms.

Station network software
Topcon Positioning Group rolled out new station network software, TopNET+
v10, a scaleable solution said to support everything from a single CORS station
to multiple CORS sites covering a large geographical area. Users of this reference
network get GNSS RTK correction data generated using information from all
reference stations in a network which allows regional use of RTK while providing data that is specific to each local rover. New features include custom subnetworks based on a rover's position within a larger regional network; a Receiver
Independent Exchange Format shop with expanded data management functionality for conversion of data from Topcon and third-party reference stations connected to the network; background maps and BING maps that allow multiple
perspectives of the network orientation and regional surroundings; and expanded
network RTK engine logging providing detailed metrics of software results.
