Reutech Mining will be an authorised distributor of SlideMinder products in Africa as announced by Call & Nicholas Instruments – maker of the slope movement monitoring and warning system.
SlideMinder will be on display at Reutech’s stand at the Electra Mining Africa 2014 from 15 to 19 September at Nasrec Expo in Johannesburg.
The SlideMinder system is a wireline extensometer application that continuously measures ground displacement in real-time.
The system can improve coverage and reliability in Reutech Mining’s radar slope monitoring systems by augmenting radar technology where changes in topography create undesirable geometry for accurate triangulation typically required by radar systems.
“We partnered with Reutech Mining’s software engineers to integrate SlideMinder data into their 3D radar display software,” stated Call & Nicholas Instruments operations manager Josh Lamm.
“This allows users to see an overlay of the movement recorded by the radar along with the secondary vectoring of the extensometers,” explained Lamm. “We are pleased with this next phase in our partnership. As an authorised distributor of SlideMinder branded products for Africa, Reutech will help greatly expand our market.”
Reutech Mining executive manager Jan de Beer said that this partnership is another step in providing quality geotechnical products to our clients.
“SlideMinder is the global leader in wireline extensometer systems and will therefore support and enhance our network of MSR systems in the African region. We look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship with SlideMinder,” stated De Beer.
