The evolution and accessibility of technology is cre- ating efficiencies across all industries, including mining. Site and fleet managers are looking for ways to educate themselves, and that often means using technology to gather data about jobsite activity. Data gathered on jobsites can provide valuable insights into equipment performance that can be used to make de- cisions to improve productivity and profitability. Launched in January 2018, the Bridgestone Pres- sureStat™ system is an easy-to-use tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) for 49" inch and below off-the-road (OTR) tires in the construction, quarry, underground hard rock and port industries. The sys- tem provides instant access to important tire data, helping owners and operators better manage their in- ventory and extend the lifecycles of their tires. PressureStat utilizes valve stem sensors to deliver tire pressure and temperature information to in-cab monitors and integrates via Bluetooth with Tread- Stat™, the Bridgestone tire and rim management tool, to send immediate, actionable tire performance data directly to users' computers, tablets or smartphones anywhere in the world. This technology reduces the manual tire inspection process up to 75 percent. PressureStat is now available for purchase in the U.S. and Canada.
