Drilling and Blasting Software

Drilling and blasting design software

Blast Maker PTC is a comprehensive solution for creating optimal designs for drilling and blasting in rocks of various strengths in open pits while keeping the main and auxiliary equipment in operation. Blast Maker PTC consists of information-analytical software and technical facilities for the collection of data about massif properties determined during the drilling of blastholes. It includes:
  • KOBUS drilling rig controller
  • Software package for processing information about the state of rock massif being destroyed, obtained from drilling rig controllers during the drilling of blastholes
  • Blast Maker software for computer-aided design of mass blasts in open pits
  • Stress system for the evaluation of deflected mode of slopes

Drilling rig control hardware

The KOBUS controller is the hardware component of Blast Maker PTC. It is intended to acquire, pre-process, indicate and transmit data to a control station from regular or additionally installed monitoring transducers.

The drilling rig operator takes the depth and coordinates of drillholes from the drilling pattern and drills the block with high accuracy using GPS. The program performs the filtering and processing of the received data, estimates the momentary energy and intensity of drilling in each blasthole, and graphically represents incoming information enabling the user to accumulate and analyze parameters including drilling techniques. The controller is installed in the booth of the drilling rig.

Computer-aided drilling and blasting

Complete information about past designed and performed blasts and the drilling parameters and techniques of all drilled holes allows the user to perform an adaptive control of the processes of rock destruction within the limits of blocks, to change the amount and structure of the explosive charge. This results in a reduction of drilling-and-blasting costs by 10%-15%, as well as an enhancement of rock crushing, and a reduction of the output of oversizes. This enables the high quality development of the working face bottom and leads to an increase in productivity of loading and transportation works.  To achieve maximum efficiency, the Blast Maker system allows the simulation of results with a 3-D representation of explosion patterns. On the basis of these results, coordinates of drillholes, the properties of rocks being destroyed, and the amount and structure of the explosive charge in drillholes may be specified. Such a multi-stage design allows the user to determine the optimal parameters of the whole complex of drilling-and-blasting with maximum efficiency, considering the stability of pit walls.  Stress system for the evaluation of the deflected mode of slopes. The stress package is intended to evaluate the stability of slopes, benches, pit walls, dumps and other mine technical structures.  The stability forecasting of mine openings is carried out on the basis of the numerical simulation of the deflected mode of rock massif and the continuous monitoring of deformations. The kit of geomechanical models sufficiently represents a variety of mechanisms of rock destruction under the seismic effect of mass blasts. Control functions of the stress package enables customers to choose the optimal power of mass blasts in faces to keep the stability of pit walls while providing the high quality blasts recommended by Blast Maker CAD. Computer-aided design engineer workstation for drilling and blasting operation. Open Pit mine degital model. Boaring Rig Contoller. Analytic module. Split Abaktzer Module for estimation of blasted rock grain size composition. Modules Output documents generator. Data import and export. Stress Module for mountainside deformation estimation. N G Nair, Mining Engineer from Copper Mines in India - Mobile 09425898691 . MINES MANAGER CERTIFICATEMine Plan and Mine DesignMalanjkhand Copper ProjectN G Nair and Yoga.   School of Mines KGFA Crying Boy. 1955 PhotoN G Nair Kerala travel 2010Ever since my early childhood days in Vaikom Kottayam Dist.
