BeltSpy

World's Leading Conveyor Belt Inspection and Conveyor Belt Monitoring System

Beltspy™ is world's leading conveyor belt inspection and conveyor belt monitoring system utilizing machine vision technology for use in the underground and overland mines. It is designed for usage during production hours with full conveyor load. A single workstation located on the surface allows operator to perform inspection of both carry and pulley sides of all conveyor belts in the mine by visually analysing high resolution images anywhere along the conveyor belts.

The system employs proprietary processing algorithm to automatically detect and flag clip joins, splice joins, damaged conveyor belt
surface and damaged belt edges, collectively called Events. The system maintains precise conveyor belt metrics relative to reference location (RL). The locations of all events (distances from RL) are stored by the system thus providing instant access to event images. Sequential conveyor belt browsing is also available.

- Machine Vision Technology - Automatic Surface Damage and Joins Detection
- Inspection during production hours - Instant Visual Access to joins and surface faults
- Single workstation to handle multiple belts - Stopping conveyor at predefined position for repair
- Synchronised view of both sides of the belt - Low cost maintenance
- Monitoring of fault development - Takes full belt image at any time

The workstation uses two-monitor configuration. The leftmost monitor controls system activity and depicts the graphical representation of the conveyor with all events placed on it. Two other monitors are dedicated to rendering conveyor belt fragments (about 1m in length) for carry and pulley sides, both being precisely synchronized.

The operator can also visually compare two images of the same location taken at different times (dates). It allows operator to analyze historical changes in damage development. The operator can take full belt image at any time or/and the system can be scheduled to perform the task automatically at predefined times every day.

The system can be instructed to automatically stop the conveyor in a particular position guaranteeing that the location to be repaired will arrive to the repair area.
