Balancing Ruggedness and Performance for Next-Generation Mining
Technology for the Mining Industry
The mining industry continues to be an industry-leading space within the mobile off-highway machine market. The push to create globally connected mining operations through telematics systems has resulted in the drive for on-demand diagnostics and consistent machinery uptime. Our company helps to forge the path forward by providing flexible and future-proof hardware and software solutions to reduce your operational risks.
The diversity and power of our controls fit perfectly with the complexity of mining equipment. Applications in mining range from simple hydraulic control to complex algorithm development for process automation. We focus on understanding these needs with manufacturers to develop advanced machine features that create marketable machine advantages.
The mining industry continues to be intolerant of downtime. As market trends shift away from fossil fuels, efficiency becomes even more important for mining machinery and equipment manufacturers. Furthermore, as mining diversifies from fossil fuel to precious metals, it is more important than ever to be able to demonstrate these efficiencies. By combining rugged hardware with machine IoT solutions, efficiency statements can be easily supported with historical data.
STW takes great care in ensuring that our products provide the reliability and ruggedness required in these operations. Quality control and dependability are hallmarks of STW engineering and manufacturing – and the average mean-time-between-failure (MTBF) of our controllers is over 15 years. We perform full quality testing of every single device that is manufactured, consisting of automated optical inspection, a full in-circuit test and complete functional testing done at normal temperatures and then in extreme cold (-40º) and extreme hot (+85 ºC) to ensure the highest standards of safety during operation. With over 30 years of experience in the mining industry, our team is prepared as a leading innovator to help you close to gap to achieve “zero downtime” for all mining machinery.
