O-Pitblast’s features

Upload a 3D-view of your work site and create a detailed blast design that you can optimize by utilizing the software’s diverse analytical tools. You can determine the size and placing of the boreholes as well as what kind of explosives you want to use and what the timing looks like for your blast.

The O-Pitblast software has several strengths but some of the more significant ones are the analytical tools that allow prediction of fragmentation patterns as well as vibration effects from a blast. Utilizing this data makes it easier to optimize the blast, which of course are essential to better and cost-effective blasts.

You can manage your blast designs easily on the cloud, from where you can download a specific plan or share it with another O-Pitblast user. In addition to the computer software, O-Pitblast also has an iOS mobile app available for smartphones. On the mobile app you can view your blast designs and make changes to specific charges on your work site.
