CSIRO͊ longwall automation technology, LASC, is becoming an integral part of underground longwall coal mining, with a majority of Australian coal mines having installed or ordered LASC-enabled longwall equipment.

To facilitate uptake of the technology to date CSIRO has been manufacturing and supplying the LASC longwall shearer-mounted hardware, referred to as the Shearer Position Measurement System (SPMS), to the licensed equipment manufacturers.

With growing international interest, CSIRO has now entered into a licensing agreement for Canadian company QSDM Inc. to manufacture, support and supply the SPMS modules.
CSIRO's David Reid supported by funding from the Australian Coal Association Research Program, ACARP, led an eight year collaborative project to develop this world's best practice Australian technology.

ee the technology develop through modelling, pilot trials and now out into the field is extremely rewarding. Partnership with companies such as QSDM will continue this process allowing more mines access to the technology thereby improving efficiency and safety,㡹s David.

President of QSDM Inc, Conrad Zalai adds, "This agreement fits perfectly with QSDM's mandate to provide state-of-the-art solutions to challenges faced by industry. We look forward to continuing our close working relationship with CSIRO."

The supply chain will remain via the LASC-licensed longwall equipment manufacturers.

LASC has been commercialised by all major longwall equipment manufacturers.
QSDM, an ISO9001 certified company, has over 25 years of experience in the design, manufacture and support of high-reliability industrial quality electronic equipment. This arrangement will ensure that the LASC technology continues to be delivered and further developed to the benefit of the industry.

CSIROӨearer Position Measurement System will be manufactured, supplied and supported by QSDM Inc. under a new licence agreement.

CSIRO and QSDM representatives will be in attendance at the Las Vegas Minexpo in September 2012.
