Sandvik has extended its My Sandvik portal to non-Sandvik brands after originally designing the platform for its own fleet.
My Sandvik is a customer portal designed to provide fleet information, allowing clients to keep track of fleet performance, plan for preventive services, and base decisions on accurate data.
The platform provides telemetry that aids fact-based decision-making by providing operational insights.
Sandvik vice president parts and services commercial Michaël Bruninx said interoperability was the next logical step for the My Sandvik platform.
“While we believe Sandvik has the best products within our scope of offering, mixed fleets at our customers’ mine sites are a reality,” Bruninx said.
“We’ve formed an impressive foundation with Sandvik machines at over 170 mine sites around the world connected by My Sandvik. Now those customers, and new ones, will be able to leverage My Sandvik telemetry reporting across their entire fleets, regardless of brand.”
The first non-Sandvik machines are expected to be connected to My Sandvik in quarter four of 2019.
Sandvik acquired digital mining technology company, Newtrax, boosting Sandvik’s technological offerings including automation and digitalisation.
Newtrax’s wireless internet of things (IoT) connectivity and tools for analysing and optimising mining production and processes allow streamlined digital solutions for any fleet.
