With a great deal of excitement Dwyka Mining Services is proud to announce it will be partnering at this year‘s Mining Indaba 2023 in Cape Town, South Africa at Booth C26 with Getac. Investing in Mining Indaba is the premiere mining exhibition on the African continent taking place this week 6 – 9 February in Cape Town.
A key focus area for Dwyka Mining Services is the support of connected worker programmes on mine-site. Connecting assets in real-time to enterprise software, support services, management and their colleagues has proven safety and productivity benefits. The reality of deploying these programmes is that reliable connectivity networks and suitable devices are integral. Mine-ready devices such as rugged tablets with increasing processing power are now being demanded as an entry-level requirement and with connectivity becoming more robust, the reliability and performance of devices in harsh conditions has become paramount.
Getac’s mining solutions are inherently rugged, built from the ground up to thrive in extreme conditions and withstand drops up to 1.8m and the hard knocks for the challenges in mining . Getac products are manufactured and certified by international third parties up to MIL-STD 810H, up to IP67 standards, ATEX explosive conditions and are built from independently verified and tested components.
“Getac devices are certified with the regulatory bodies in South Africa and designed with standard mounts and docking systems for backwards compatibility and are less likely to fail than consumer devices, resulting in excellent total cost of ownership (TCO) comparisons to current alternatives,” shares Austin Li, Regional Manager Middle East & Africa.
“During the course of this week we will be showcasing how Getac’s range of rugged tablets, laptops and impressive array of custom mounts for vehicle and personnel are available to connect your physical workforce and control a rapidly growing digital workforce. This digital workforce now includes drones, robots and other mission critical tools!” reiterates van Schoor.
Dr. Stefan Hrabar, CEO and Co-Founder of Emesent, their Hovermap solution also represented by Dwyka Mining Services, validates the Getac range for their use, “Safety and operational hazards at workplaces are important factors for mining companies, and we want to supply them with a comprehensive solution that not only enables them to operate but also improves efficiency without hassle. Harsh conditions in mining mean that we needed a device that was rugged enough and able to complement our smart mobile scanning unit. That is why we selected the Getac V110. Its ability to convert from laptop to tablet provides users the flexibility of both options. We also appreciate its hot-swappable dual-battery feature that enables users to process the LiDAR data underground regardless of whether they have access to power.”
“A key focus for us this year is to make tech tangible and accessible to all our customers and with that we mean getting people to demo, interact, engage and see how technology can make a difference at their operations. Join us to see how we control Boston Dynamics Spot Enterprise robot from the new Android based ZX10 on the Getac Stand C26!” challenges van Schoor.
Dwyka Mining Services will also be co-hosting a Getac VIP Valentines Day showcase in Johannesburg at Dwyka Mining Services offices post Mining Indaba with the team visiting from Asia. Mining ICT / IM representatives have been invited to ‘kick the tires’ and get a first hand feel of the devices for their consideration – if you would like to attend please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.Terms and conditions, POPI Act considerations apply.
