The newest Sandvik OptiMine offerings provide three dimensional models of the mine in real time, which help to streamline planning.

The evolution of automation

3D Mine Visualizer and the Drill Plan Visualizer are the latest Sandvik OptiMine offerings that are helping optimize the drill process.

In an effort to stay at the forefront of mining technology, Sandvik has introduced two new OptiMine modules: the 3D Mine Visualizer and the Drill Plan Visualizer. The Sandvik 3D Mine Visualizer puts an accurate 3D model of your mine straight into your office. It streamlines the planning process, helps to identify problematic areas and assists in tracking a mine’s development over time. The Sandvik Drill Plan Visualizer displays both drill plans and drilling results in an easy-to-read, user-friendly way. Plans are easy to edit and can be transferred to the drills automatically. This allows customers to see real-time drilling data immediately, and in turn they can optimize their processes constantly.
