XCMG Machinery represents future of mining machinery development through its new equipment products and advanced workplace technology. China’s mining satellite jointly designed and developed by XCMG, China University of Mining and Technology, and Skysight, was launched at Taiyuan Satellite Launch Centre.
The X-Band, sun-synchronous satellite is a co-orbit, multi-means remote sensing satellite constellation combining SAR (synthetic aperture radar), optical, and thermal infrared with excellent performance and a long service life. It will be applied in the fields of mine exploration and design, mining industry development, intelligent mine operation, geological disaster early warning, safe mining scheduling, mine site slope management utilisation of abandoned pits, and green mine rehabilitation.
XCMG has participated in the full design and development process of CUMT Nanhu and will be one of its future users. The satellite will enable unified planning of personnel, vehicles, and sites to achieve integrated dispatching, command platform visualisation, and intelligent deployment, which will improve the safety level, reduce operation costs, and lower manual input. It will play a key role in constructing safe, intelligent, green, and ecological mines.
“XCMG Mining Machinery focuses on the application of information technologies, including the Internet of Vehicles, the Internet of Things, cloud computing, and big data. We organically converge all operation links from R&D and process, manufacturing and assembly, equipment and application scenarios, market, sales, and services to realise full-cycle management and establish a solid foundation of digital infrastructures that is catalysing the digital transformation of the traditional manufacturing industries,” says Yang Dongsheng, CEO and chairman of XCMG.
While on the other side of the earth, XCMG’s duo of a 400-ton electric hydraulic excavator XE4000E and a 260-ton dual-bridge rigid mining truck XDE260 are working around the clock in an open-pit mine in Ecuador, tackling challenges of heavy workload, high dust, and high intensity with ease and grace.
