Control Operator Chairs for Various Mining & Building Operations - such as Stackers/Reclaimers/Cranes

When control operators have to spend their working days in a small cabin high up on a structure, you would want them to be comfortable, and have easy access to all the control joysticks, pushbuttons and instrumentation they need to be efficient and effective in their job.

Micromation have designed and installed these operator control stations/chairs, and are able to eqjuipment the stations with any controls and instrumentation you would need.

The units are locally (South African) manufactured, which means that you do not have a run-away budget situation due to the falling Rand rate of exchange.

Adaptability and Flexibility

Because the units are locally designed and manufactured, we can therefore "tailor make" the units to meet your exact specifications.   You do not have to try to make your requirements fit our product line!

If required, we can add electronics and PLC type functionality to our Control Stations.

 Micromation Systems Existing Installations

Micromation has already installed two Operator Control Stations/Chairs in ESKOM's Medupi  Power Station, used in their Stacker and Reclaimer  plant.
