Santosh S Melligere Shirur Dolomite Mines




We are absolutely satisfied with Volvo CE's performance and its ability to deliver and are also delighted with the machine's fuel efficiency. Santosh S Melligere, Partner | Shirur Dolomite Mines (SDM)

Strengthened legacy
Proving its mettle to the world, Shirur Dolomite Mines (SDM) has been in the business of mining for over 16 years. Operating its own mechanised dolomite - which is a double carbonate of Magnesium and Calcium - in Shirur Village, the company has contributed immensely to two major industries of the country; one being the steel industry where Dolomite is used as a flux, and the other is the glass industry.

Fulfilling the raw material needs required by the steel and glass industry through its expertise, SDM has time and again excelled with its offerings and services across two major industries and in two states - Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.

Facing challenges
Volvo CE Telematic System
Being in a business where rock-solid challenges are part of the daily life, SDM, on an average day, unearths 700 tonnes per day. More so, the unearthing begins only after the rock is exploded using dynamite and then crushed into different sizes and shapes; making it easy for those around to begin the next process.

The Volvo CE connect
Shirur Dolomite Mines uses the Volvo 210B Prime, which the company believes has been performing to the hilt for the last three and a half years. Talking about the machine and its performance, Mr. Santosh S Melligere, Partner, says, "We are absolutely satisfied with Volvo CE's performance and its ability to deliver, and are delighted with the machine's fuel efficiency."

Caretrack. Everything's on track.
Shirur Dolomite Mines credits its success to Volvo CE and Caretrack. Caretrack is the telematics system offered by Volvo CE. A system that gives extensive insight into the machine by monitoring information; which eventually saves time and money. The system also helps in reducing fuel costs, optimising machinery and operator performance, to proactively manage service and maintenance. All of this results in efficiency and higher profits.

So how does the system achieve these results? Well, it's pretty simple.

Caretrack works in such a way that you get utilisation reports, can refer to things every 10 to 15 days, get regular service alarms from the machine, and get warning signals for an impending problem, which means you solve a problem even before it arises. All of this with some excellent support from the dealer.

Points to Remember.
While Caretrack, in a nutshell, helps in equipment efficiency and better results, it also helps the business in some very specific ways including helping saving money and time. It also offers infinite opportunities with its functionalities and the right features for your business. The system generates a wide range of reports via a web portal, as well as sending SMS / E-mail alerts What's more, you get tracking and status benefits, anti-theft advantage, communication systems and API, to name a few. Now, that's what we call packing a punch!

Volvo CE dealer
Encore in Karnataka has been the dealer for Shirur Dolomite Mines. And going by the word of SDM, Encore has time and again offered the best of services and support resulting in better efficiency for the company and happy faces from either side.

Concluding thoughts
Volvo CE and Caretrack put together form a potent combination that can help reach great heights in their business. In this case, great depths!
