The SSR-Omni is the world’s leading Slope Stability Radar technology. In 40 seconds it scans 360 degrees, taking 37 million measurements in a 11.2km diameter, each measurement showing movement of rock and ground of 0.1mm precision. Using embedded super-computing on a chip, we process this scan of over 600MB of raw data down to a fraction of the size. To do this we use cutting-edge proprietary algorithms that also predict the time of collapse. This data is displayed in innovative 2D and 3D patented visualisations that make complex data easily understood.
When a liner is attached to a mining excavator bucket, it is welded into place, when it gets worn out and needs replacing, the metal is cut out but unfortunately due to design, the design of the steel in this application has “stored energy” and “pops’ out with great force when removed, hence the fatality on another suppliers product. Our design total eliminated the need to a “liner” or a wear plate, but give a better return on investment.
