Machine guidance investment upgrades technology fleet

September 4th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Downer, an integrated services company listed on the Australian and New Zealand stock exchanges, invested in Carlson high precision machine guidance solutions to be deployed across four mine sites in Australia. In total, 27 machine systems will be installed across a fleet of dozers, excavators, drills, and supervisor vehicles to increase productivity and optimize mine site operations. Downer and Carlson’s Oceania distributor, Position Partners, have worked closely on tailored mining solutions since 2014, when the company purchased its first Carlson high precision machine guidance system. Carlson’s custom-designed volumetric module is integrated into the Carlson Command software platform to provide office reporting tools to Downer on productivity and utilisation of high precision machine guidance systems. This management tool provides an in-depth understanding of machine and fleet performance. The Carlson Machine Guidance products purchased by Downer include  Drill Grade, Excavator Grade, Dozer Grade, Grade Supervisor and Carlson Command (an office database solution to capture all data coming in from the machines for real-time viewing, reporting, and data analysis).
