With great excitement for the upcoming Investing in African Mining Indaba in 2024, the theme of ‘positive disruption’ is significant, especially in the context of mine blasting and explosives. BME is at the forefront of developing new blasting technologies that will shape Africa’s future by focusing on safety, sustainability, and productivity.
BME, a leading provider of explosives and blasting solutions, is transforming the mining industry through its smart technology innovations. The company’s mobile manufacturing units (MMUs) are now equipped with advanced automation features, powered by machine learning and artificial intelligence. This integration of smart technology enables real-time data monitoring and analysis, optimizing the loading of bulk emulsion into blastholes.
When it comes to using alternate electronic initiation systems outside of the traditional wired variant, BME is looking beyond just wireless solutions.
Mining solutions specialist BME has released a new version of its popular Xplolog system for capturing and analysing data on blast holes and decks.
To achieve optimal blasting results for mining efficiency, mines need real-time data from their blasting blocks; BME’s new generation Xplolog does just that – and is being put to work at a large opencast mine in South Africa’s Northern Cape province.
