We want to see you grow. Our mining solutions let you take on more machines in the same management environment and give you onsite visibility right from the office. Topcon technology is your ticket to mining productivity, and we’re here to help you make the most of it.

Material Stockpiles & Site Overviews

Mass Data Collection

Stockpiles represent the flow of the mine's minerals. A fast, accurate workflow to understand stockpile volumes and locations means better planning and costing. Typical methods to get this data is getting surveyors out to map them out. Mass Data Collection provides the same information and more in a very quick and safe way. Alternating or combining these technologies, depending on needs and circumstances, provides detailed accuracy over large surface areas. Mapping image information onto point data makes the results easy to access.

Aerial, mobile mapping and terrestrial scanning

Create site overviews when and where you want them. These easy-to-use Topcon solutions delivers high-accuracy scanning, aerial mapping and mobile mapping quickly and affordably based on a user-definable area, altitude and photo intervals. Create DTMs, orthophotos, basic measurements, overlays, 3D models and high density point clouds with georeferenced 360 degree images overlaid for easy feature recognition, cut/fill analysis and even as-built design comparisons. You can rely on Topcon automation, RTK and wireless features to get you results promptly, so you can get on with your work.

A 3D POINT CLOUD TELLS A THOUSAND STORIES

Topcon mapping and scanning systems are the perfect solution when a massive amount of asset data needs to be collected in a short amount of time. There’s no need to waste resources revisiting a site to gather missing data. Our easy-to-use software can make measurements and extract the necessary information for GIS or CAD software, right from the office. Make volumes and assets visible for everyone.

STAY SAFE, STAY PRODUCTIVE

Safety is a high priority for any mining operation. Keep field personnel out of harm’s way with our high-performance mapping systems. Send just one person to the site in a mobile mapping vehicle or collect data remotely using an unmanned aerial vehicle. Stay secure while generating volumes, site maps and overviews.

Excavation and Mass Haul

CLOUD-CONNECTED MASS HAUL PLANNING

No more manual records of load counts. Track the progress of every haul, and keep everyone on the job in synch – excavators, trucks and personnel. This cloud-based solution relies on a portable control box that mounts in the cab. As the truck is loaded, on route, or dumping material, activity data is stored in a central location for easy online access. The excavator system features a machine control system to assist the operator with guidance about where and how deep to dig.

LOCATION-BASED PRODUCTION MANAGEMENT WITH MASS HAUL OPTIMIZATION

Topcon provides quicker, more realistic and more accurate planning and analysis by building up from the map. Mining is all about moving and placing material in real physical space over time, and Topcon gives you tools designed specifically to maximize efficiency. Graphic visualizations allow you to make sense of complex interacting variables throughout the project lifecycle. Most importantly, with Topcon you gain the ability to better control your outcomes.

TRACK THE DATA — STAY IN CONTROL

With Sitelink3D, it’s easy to keep everything running smoothly. Access real-time data remotely from haul trucks and excavators, so you know always where you stand. Update types and quantities of materials — even start and finish locations — on the fly, and your progress and projections are automatically revised.

RESOURCE-BASED PLANNING KEEPS IT REAL

In Topcon haul solutions, activities are based on the scope of work, available resources and production rates. All views are linked and updated in real time. This gives you full control of required machine production rates, while ensuring that your schedules are realistic and doable.

REAL-TIME BUCKET CONTROL — NO MORE TOOTHACHES

Topcon excavator systems provide the operator with all the information needed to expedite excavation tasks. The operator can, in effect, "see" the machine's exact position in relation to the site, enabling precise positioning over utility centerlines. He can also see the position of the teeth of the bucket compared to the finish design, making it easier to perform deep cuts, conduct blind excavations and work around structures.

Pinpoint Precision

Subsurface data collection

Some of the most difficult and hostile working environments are encountered in working subsurface mines. Operatives need to make sure that they are strictly following pre-defined processes without deviation; Topcon’s eTS Mining software for OS Windows Total Stations takes care of this.

SMART GUIDANCE WITH VERIFIABLE RESULTS

Topcon eTS Mining software directs users through all routines to finish the job at hand, eliminating the need for mining survey experts. While ensuring that tasks are performed without user shortcuts, using eTS Mining assures that all surveys are done correctly. An intuitive user interface means the software is easy to use and learn. 

A smooth exchange of data via USB means no more paper records of angles and distance measurements are necessary; all information is transferred digitally.  In addition, field crews will never loose the datasets. All of the data is available as raw observation files in addition to the real-time, coordinated positions shown on the OS total station.

Automated Deformation Monitoring

MONITORING SOLUTIONS

Spend minimal time on site, perform simple installations and collect real time data with Topcon's RAPID™ Automated Deformation Monitoring System (ADMS). By incorporating the functionality of the Topcon MS AX II series robotic total station, Topcon designed a complete monitoring package appropriate for projects including construction, tunnel convergence, mining, dams and asset management. The ADMS is a revolutionary tool that is easy to install and manage.
