Solutions: Mining

Rugged Controls supports mining companies by monitoring the lifting cables on shaft elevators. Distributing the line tension equally and ensuring that all cables are lifting at the same rate helps increase safety by maintaining work platform stability.

Our running line tensiometers with both tension and payout sensors are installed at Oyu Tolgoi in Mongolia, at the largest gold mine in Canada and several of the potash mines in Ontario.
