PRESS RELEASE: The new display features an optically bonded, anti-glare 9in (22.9cm) touchscreen that guarantees visibility in tough environments. It‘s multi-touch capable, allowing future applications to utilise features such as pinch-to-zoom and gestures. Display 9 is designed for harsh environments and can withstand the extreme environmental conditions typically encountered in mines.

The heart of the new Display 9 features a powerful Intel-based computing platform that improves performance significantly. The greatly improved user experience means enhanced productivity and operator efficiency.

Joe Arico, principal product manager at Hexagon Mining, said: "Through the use of the latest technologies, the Display 9 brings a new level of performance to our hardware suite. Operators will immediately notice a smoother interaction with our MineOperate portfolio, allowing them to work more efficiently."

Display 9 will become the standard offering on all the company‘s low-precision equipment and high-precision dozers. It will be available optionally on other high-precision equipment alongside the standard Display 12 offering.
