WinProf

Software to facilitate the design and control of bench blasts by generating face profile details

  • TLC WinProf logo

    WINPROF facilitates the design and control of bench blasts by generating face profile details using laser face and borehole surveying instruments.

     

    Plan and design your blast charge requirements based on laser profile and borehole data with the ability to edit your raw data in the application.

    Meet legal requirements for blast design and accountability using a single software package. The reports prove what you did and how you did it.

  • Raw Data Features

     

    Raw Data Editing Tools

    • Raw Data can be converted to real mine coordinates by using a back sight, or by surveying three known stations.
    • Raw Data points may be removed individually
    • Data Limits can be used on the plan view to remove unwanted data points:

    Raw data can be viewed on screen in 3D for editing

     

    Database of fixed surveyed stations (reference points):

    • Database of fixed surveyed stations
    • Surveyed station points data can be inserted at different points:
    • To define laser station
    • To define measured sights

  • Features of 3D survey software

    • Generates the Bench Face Surface based on user criteria
    • Optimize borehole length according to bench height
    • Adjust elevation of borehole collars to elevation of the crest
    • Automatic calculation of sub-drill amount as a percentage of toe burden
    • Calculate borehole profile using a 3D surround algorithm (i.e. looking to the sides of each profile for minimum burdens)
    • Check for minimum burden above and below at each burden depth
    • Generate 3D surface faces
    • Interactive editing of data
    • Determination of Borehole Variables:
      • Burden at Depth
      • Borehole Volume
      • Profile Area
      • Optimum Borehole Position
      • Profile Generated from random Laser Surveyed Points
