TITLE
Remote door operation from dumper cab
ARTICLE
Aggregate Industries at Stoneycombe Quarry, not far from Newton Abbot in Devon, is credited with
reducing operator fatigue and risk of cab access & egress slips, trips and falls on the bins-to-stockpile cycle. The repetitive requirement was for the dumper driver to have to dismount to access the
air-operated chute doors, re-mount to load the dumper, then dismount again to close the door. The
solution being an infra-red remote control system with which to operate the loadout controls from the
comfort of the dumper cab.
