Is Copperstone Technologies a robot company? They build a robot, their technology is sitting on a robot, and if you click on one of their video’s you see a robot navigating tailings pond beaches, snow covered ground, and propelling itself through water. Their CEO Craig Milne joined Mining NOW to discuss that their incredible line of robotics is really a means to their core objective. To help mines with hazardous site investigation “using” robotics.
Copperstone offers the Helix. This family of robots is named for its unique mobility. Helical, screw-shaped pontoons allow HELIX to float on water or scroll across any terrain, including mud, snow, ice, and rocks.
Craig discusses how the design originated, its evolution, meeting customer’s needs, and their business model. This in-depth interview will not only give you a better understanding of Copperstone as a company but of both challenges and ways that solutions are being found in the mining industry…making it safer and more environmentally responsible in a new age of technology.
