BME adds centralised blasting system to AXXIS range

BME, an Omnia company, has filled out its popular AXXIS electronic detonation range with the AXXIS Centralised Electronic Blasting System (CEBS), designed for use in both general and specialised underground mining environments.

“AXXIS CEBS is a premium digital detonator system for initiating explosives, augmenting our popular AXXIS Titanium system for large deep-hole surface operations, and AXXIS Silver for smaller blasting operations,” said Ralf Hennecke, managing director at BME. “It also represents the safest initiation technology available globally.”

The AXXIS CEBS system allows for two-way communication to take place in real time, with an electronic device initiating each blast by means of an electronic starter. The system comprises a blast controller on the surface that monitors and reports all data and activities quickly and transparently. It also includes a logging device, which is used underground at the blasting face to log the detonators and conduct the necessary test functions. 

“Information from the logger is transferred to a blasting box and on to the control box, which manages the entire blasting process from the surface,” said Andries Posthumus, BME AXXIS global electronic initiation systems development manager. “AXXIS CEBS is designed for enhanced control, precision and safe blasting – with enhanced safety, ease of use and flexibility.”

He emphasised that, as the newest generation of AXXIS technology, CEBS also makes the logging and testing of detonators more efficient. By creating a central point for blasting, it allows users to save time when setting up and conducting blasts.
