Competitive and market pressures require that JOY’s customers produce product at an ever-increasing rate and at an ever-decreasing cost per ton. These objectives are made all the more challenging by the worsening attributes of available reserves and the ever-deteriorating operating conditions in which machinery must operate.
Using a combination of operator-assistance tools, automated sequences, advanced diagnostics, machine performance monitoring and analysis tools, the JOY FACEBOSS control platform enables operators to consistently operate their JOY machinery at the optimal balance of production rate and cost.
The JOY FACEBOSS control platform can maximize continuous miner productivity in a variety of ways:
- Optimized Cutting
- High Availability
- Automated Sequences
- Maximum Flexibility
The JOY FACEBOSS control platform includes an on-board graphical display which includes a log of events, messages and alarms.
The JOY FACEBOSS control platform can be configured to display in a variety of languages.
With the JOY continuous miner connected to a surface computer, the FACEBOSS control platform enables the real-time monitoring of the machine from surface (Remote Machine Monitoring – RMM).
