Minestar Command


Whether your mining operation is big or small, above or below ground, your priority is to safeguard your people, ensure your operation is efficient and keep your equipment running smoothly. Whatever your operational challenges are, WesTrac can deliver an automation solution to overcome them.

It's no secret that automation technology boosts productivity, reduces overall costs, improves efficiency and increases profitability. Aside from these benefits, it will open up new opportunities for your business. Whether it's automating a single mining process or implementing a fully autonomous fleet of hauling trucks, this technology will give you an edge over competitors and make everyday easy.

Take control of your operation

MineStar Command is a flexible and customisable technology that helps you take control of your operation. You choose the level of automation that’s right for your site – from operator assistance right through to full autonomy.

No two operations are alike, so Command gives you the capability to adapt what’s working elsewhere to suit your site-specific needs. Autonomous drilling, underground mining, hauling, or dozing – whatever your needs, there is a MineStar Command automation solution that will help you achieve your goals.

The real-word benefits of MineStar Command also help reduce overall costs while improving productivity, addressing the skills crisis and expanding your options.

Tailored Automation Services

In addition to providing technology, our Mining Solutions Team provides a number of tailored automation services that may involve a combination of the technologies listed above, in addition to some of our other services.

This could involve our team automating one or more of your operation's mining processes, end-to-end. It might also be that your operation is better suited to a semi-autonomous solution.

MineStar Reporting 

MineStar Reporting is a revolutionary data visualisation and reporting tool focused on integrating data gathered from other Cat MineStar solutions and consolidating it into a single, unified interface.

MineStar Reporting is currently available to any mining organisation using COMMAND.
