Fresh look for Capella landmark

New life has been breathed into a Capella landmark with the refurbishment of the mine dragline bucket at the entrance to the Capella Industrial Park.

CQMS Razer, Gerada Engineering, SunCity Signs and Central Highlands Regional Council joined forces to restore the EarthEaterTM dragline bucket to its former glory as part of CQMS Razer’s 40th anniversary year activities across the region.

John Barbagallo, CEO CQMS Razer said the EarthEaterTM dragline bucket was an important part of the Capella landscape representing the ongoing presence of the mining industry across the region.

“40 ye
ars ago, CQMS Razer began its story in Central Queensland and with the support of the local community, local government, mining operators and our incredible staff, we have been able to grow into the global mining technology and productivity leaders we are today.

“We’re proud to be able to bring this original EarthEaterTM dragline bucket back to its former glory and we encourage local residents and tourists travelling through the region to stop by and check it out,” said Mr Barbagallo.

Visitors to the Capella dragline bucket are encouraged to share their photos via social media with the hashtags #Capellabucket #CR40yrs #CentralHighlandsQLD and in doing so help promote the region.

The CQMS Razer EarthEaterTM dragline bucket began its Bowen Basin open cut coal mining life on 14 December 2001. The bucket was used on a Marion 8050 dragline and during its life dug and moved more than 83 million tonnes of overburden at the mine site. The dragline bucket weighs more than 41,000 tonnes and had a capacity of 46.4 cubic metres.

40 years experience delivers CQMS Razer Tomago facility the mining edge

The CQMS Razer Tomago facility in Australia offers a range of fabrication, repair, value-add, and process capabilities, servicing the Hunter Valley and Newcastle.

John Barbagallo, CQMS Razer CEO, said the organisation’s facility at Tomago designs and manufactures a broad range of conveyor, rubber and polyurethane accessories for a variety of applications.

“Our products are designed to maximise performance while minimising ongoing maintenance requirements, helping to deliver the lowest cost of ownership possible.

“With 40 years’ experience manufacturing innovative products and servicing the mining, government, manufacturing, and hydraulics industries, our philosophy of continuous improvement underpins the high quality of our work practices.

“The company is committed to providing and maintaining a work environment which is free from harm. We believe that people make the difference in our business and CQMS Razer looks to continually support our employees to deliver a safe workplace where we after value and care for our fellow colleagues to make sure everyone is safe.

“A big safety milestone was celebrated at the Tomago facility earlier this year – seven years (over 2,500 days) without a Lost Time Injury (LTI). This is a remarkable achievement for a site that undertakes the type of heavy industry work typically done at Tomago,” John said.

Over the last year, CQMS Razer has implemented a number of safety initiatives across the organisation and at Tomago, including:

– Implementation of a rotator for hardface welding of parts. This eliminates the practice of rolling very heavy parts over to weld the underside and also eliminates the need for specific jigs to ensure the welder has the right ergonomic set up.

– Fabrication and design of a gas bottle access ramp/platform to reduce manual handling risks when taking gas bottles out of their storage cages.

– Installation of a new wall crane in the warehouse which decreased forklift/pedestrian interaction.Implementation of the TAKE 2 initiative across all company sites which encourages employees to stop and think about every task they are conducting to keep themselves safe.

– Constant reinforcement and celebration of safety wins and improvements, across people, processes and systems.

“There is no doubt that seven years without an LTI is a result of significant commitment and dedication by everyone. And for the future, we strive to have every single person at Tomago making excellent personal decisions every day on being safe every day,” John said.

Titan 3330 reaches billion tonne milestone

Today marks more than one billion tonnes of resources mined by CR Digital’s clients using their world-first flagship technology, Titan 3330TM.

The Titan 3330TM Load Haul Optimisation System uses highly sophisticated instruments and patented algorithms to accurately calculate and display real-time bucket payload data to the machine operator, enabling increased loading accuracy and efficiency. The technology is proven to help increase average payloads, improve productivity and reduce safety risk overloads across load haul fleets.

Head of Digital for CR Digital Mr Damian Assaillit said they reached the milestone ahead of schedule thanks to strong ongoing product interest from some of the world’s leading miners and contractors.

“We continue to lead the way in real-time on-machine technologies, it’s now proven globally to deliver productivity improvements no matter what commodity, machine make or model – Titan 3330TM really is the leader and we are extremely proud of our team to have achieved this milestone,” said Mr Assaillit.

“One billion tonnes really puts us into another league, up there with some of the biggest milestones of modern mining technology, like autonomous haul trucks.

“We’re delivering world-first technologies that provide real-time data that can be integrated into operations for some of the most complex challenges facing global mining companies.

“Proven in the field, our technology has been a breakthrough for the surface mining industry and we’re proud of how it continues to deliver real results for our clients.”

Titan 3330TM empowers operators to improve their productivity and truck load accuracy by displaying real-time data on bucket weight and truck payload targets. Operators can self-correct potential damaging dig techniques, improve overall performance, reducing possible loading machine and truck long-term damage, and potentially reducing unscheduled downtime.

CR Digital’s technology portfolio also includes Digital Terrain Mapping, which can map mine terrain in real-time using lidar scanners and GPS sensors to deliver improved survey accuracy and reducing dig to plan errors before draglines are moved.

CR Digital Productivity Technology is on public display today and tomorrow for the first time at the 2019 Future of Mining conference in Sydney, Australia at the CR Digital stand #22.
