Pico Project Design services included mechanical design, dynamic analysis, brake system design, instrumentation, and control system design. The control system design included the logic development, programming (Allen Bradley PLC5/30), on-site commissioning, and performance testing. The control system included a supervisory system (FactoryLink) provided by others.
|The project is a 4.7 Km route at 3000TPH for the transportation of iron ore consisting of one overland, three downhill, six plant conveyors and an automated trainload out system. It also included two silo / feeder systems, a shuttle conveyor (moveable head) and interfacing to the stacker / reclaimer systems.|
