The company is currently building a fleet of eight prototype HX2 autonomous, battery-electric load carriers. As well as a fleet of HX2s, other prototype machines that make up the electric site system include the LX1 hybrid wheel loader and the EX1 cable-connected excavator.

May 4, 2018 - Some users of aggregate product are misapplying standards meant for soil to products such as stone, sand and gravel. Sand, stone, and gravel processed in a pit or quarry are products, not soil. However, Soil, Ground Water and Sediment Standards (Tables 1 through 9) for Use Under Part XV.1 (Records of Site Condition) of the Environmental Protection Act are being broadly used and misapplied to aggregate products even though they are not required to meet these standards.

December 12, 2018 - Modern quarry blasting operations have evolved into an extensive array of paperwork with essential documentation required for blast reporting, vibration monitoring, data regression, damage complaint resolution and blasting notifications. This often results in an unmanageable clutter that can quickly grow out of hand. Existing autonomous vibration monitoring systems (AVMs) can presently be implemented to handle the processing of vibration monitoring by providing a soft real‐time supply of vibration data to all necessary stakeholders.
