Abstract [en]

This paper provides a general review of longwall automation systems, discussing the results of implementing automation, with a focus on shearer automation. A case study in an Australian longwall mine investigates the effects of automation on productivity, production rate and cutting profiles. The results reveal that with automation, productivity increased by 10% and the production rate increased by almost 22%. In addition, automation resulted in smooth production and accurate cutting profiles three months after installation
