Hexagon Mining officially launched its bold vision of smart change last week at the Mining Indaba in Cape Town, South Africa. Peter Stegmaier explained the portfolio of innovative technologies. He said “Hexagon Mining is the only company to solve critical surface and underground challenges by integrating design, planning, and operations technologies for safer, more productive mines. The group is also here in Denver this week for the SME Annual Meeting.Combining the innovative technologies of industry leaders MineSight, Devex Mining, Leica Geosystems Mining, and SAFEmine, Hexagon Mining seamlessly links mine planning, design, fleet and production management, optimization, fatigue monitoring, and collision avoidance systems for a comprehensive flow of data across all operations. These brands represent more than 100 years of innovation, experience, and results.As high-grade ores become scarcer and profit margins tighten, the consolidated experience and expertise offered by Hexagon Mining could not be more timely, says Hexagon President and CEO Ola Rollén. “Hexagon Mining offers a smarter way to mine. Productive mines recognise that technology is essential to their success. Companies will need to be smarter, safer, and quicker to respond to change. Their future depends on it.”Hexagon Mining recognises that a competitive edge depends on integrating, automating, and optimizing critical workflows in the life of a mine. Efficiency, precision, accuracy, and safety are pivotal to those needs and paramount to improving any mine’s costs, productivity, and safety.Headquartered in Tucson, Arizona, USA, with more than 30 offices across five continents, the company is a dynamic network of talented mining professionals delivering worldclass technology, service, and support.Hexagon Mining brands:MineSight, based in Tucson, represents a comprehensive modelling and mine planning platform, offering integrated solutions for exploration, modelling, design, scheduling, and operationBrazil-based Devex Mining delivers leading solutions for advanced underground fleet and production management, process control, personnel safety, business intelligence and analytics, and advanced 3D visualisation Co-headquartered in Brisbane, Australia, and Tucson, Leica Geosystems Mining delivers leading solutions for open pit fleet and production optimization, high-precision machine guidance, machine maintenance, business intelligence, and business analyticsBased in Baar, Switzerland, SAFEmine is the leader in collision avoidance and fatigue monitoring systems, delivering extensible solutions designed to save lives.Hexagon Mining is part of Hexagon, a leading global provider of information technologies that drive quality and productivity improvements across geospatial and industrial enterprise applications.The picture shows (left to right) Hexagon Mining President Guilherme Bastos, Peter Stegmaier of SAFEmine, MineSight Chairman and Founder Fred Banfield and Haydn Roberts of Leica Geosystems Mining at the MineSight acquisition celebration in Tucson.
