Peck Tech Consulting Ltd. is pleased to announce the appointment of RAMJACK, a leading provider of mining technology in Sub-Saharan Africa, as its first distributor of the uGPS Rapid Mapper™.
The first of its kind, uGPS Rapid Mapper™ is a mobile 3D scanning device purpose-built for underground mines. Its rapidly acquired 3D point cloud data can be used for a variety of different underground mining applications, such as development pick-ups, volume calculations (overbreak/dilution studies) and even shaft scanning. Since its launch in August 2014, this innovative technology has generated significant interest throughout the global mining community, and this recent news represents an important milestone in Peck Tech’s plans to expand availability of uGPS Rapid Mapper™ to the African market.
As an established provider of the most innovative technologies in Sub-Saharan Africa, RAMJACK sees this partnership as a way to strengthen and expand their product portfolio even further. “We are very excited to be adding the uGPS Rapid Mapper™ to our product portfolio in Africa,” said Mike Jackson, Co-Founder of RAMJACK. “We’ve already started discussions with several mines in the region, and the technology is being very well-received.”
Due to its ability to generate 3D scans from a mobile platform, the uGPS Rapid Mapper™ offers a novel way for surveyors and engineers to tackle their day-to-day tasks quickly and effectively. Pleased with the signing of this agreement, Andrew Chapman, Product Manager for the uGPS Rapid Mapper™ said, “We look forward to this strategic partnership with RAMJACK and believe our product can greatly assist underground miners in Africa to survey more quickly, easily and safely in their unique mining environments”.
