indurad’s shiploader solution, the iShiploader is widely used around the world, from loading iron ore in West Australia to potash, coal, and grain on the west coast of Canada. On the North American east coast, the company has deployed its solutions at iron ore and coal export terminals and on ship-unloaders handling alumina.

Automatic shiploading has always been the holy grail of the mining and bulk material handling industries, as it allows operators to tele remote the boom and spout from a safe location. iShiploader uses high precision 2D and 3D radar sensors to reliably scan for collision objects, provide position data, and measure the interior of bulk carriers in real time during loading/unloading cycles.

Most seaports experience a considerable amount of dense fog, rain, strong winds, ice, and snow. These environmental factors pose challenges for conventional optical technology like lasers which rely on favourable weather conditions to perform optimally. indurad’s sensors use the latest in radar technology, which is proven to work reliably in all weather conditions. This allows the company systems to work continuously day and night, 365 days/year with minimal maintenance.

The Germany-based global supplier of radar-based automation technology is continuously developing its solution to consider new shiploader and unloader types…
