Embracing Automation, Innovation & Safety
In 2017 we focused on the ‘grass roots’ of our industry – celebrating achievements and productivity. Building on this, and on the back of green shoots seen across the international coal markets, we are looking to the future once more.
Longwall 2018 will be Embracing Automation, Innovation & Safety; bringing together everyone from graduate engineers, to operators, industry stalwarts and leading innovators to share their ideas, challenges, wisdom and successes. With a focus on case studies and operator stories, no matter how big or small your operation is, Longwall 2018 will be the industry gathering for shared learning across the underground coal mining sector.
2018 Key Themes
- Automation – Case studies on implementation, lessons learned and remote operations
- Maintenance – New developments and improvements in predictive maintenance
- Fatigue Management – New techniques to maximise productivity and safety
- Education & Training – From recruitment to staff redevelopment
- The Dust Conversation – The latest updates on this ever-present issue
- Future Tech – What’s in the R&D pipeline and what we can expect from future systems
- Hearts & Minds – Culture as a barrier to change and the biggest hurdle for automation
