The main aim of the GRIPAssist is to remove human interactions during G.E.T changeouts.

The GRIPAssist is the flagship product of CR’s new MINEAssist product category and has been developed to rsignificantly reduce human interaction when handling Ground Engagement Tools (G.E.T) in the pit or the workshop. 

"Through listening to our customers, we have understood the need to develop a range of safety equipment for G.E.T maintenance change out and have worked collaboratively to bring this industry-changing product to market." CR Chief Executive Officer John Barbagallo says.

"The GRIPAssist promotes safe G.E.T change out and is a great equipment solution to provide genuine safe fitment and removal of all G.E.T items."

General Manager of Product Management Quintin Nienaber says the GRIPAssist could completely optimise the way current maintenance practices are performed.

"We have seen G.E.T changeout times halved in our initial field tests which is an incredible outcome while at the same time improving safety.

"While the aim of the GRIPAssist is to remove human interactions during G.E.T changeouts, the fact that it can enhance productivity by reducing downtime is a significant associated benefit and is a game-changer in how G.E.T maintenance will be managed and scheduled in the future".
