Battery Technology

Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology has matched its decades of engineering expertise with Artisan Vehicle Systems’ 18 years of innovative powertrain technology and battery system expertise to come up with the new 18 t payload LH518B battery-electric loader.

Sandvik acquired Artisan last year, in the process gaining 10 years of mining battery-electric vehicle (BEV) deployment experience. The latest BEV loader, which comes on top of Artisan’s 4 t and 10 t capacity loaders – plus its 50 t payload truck – is the first true collaborative design effort between the two companies.

Artisan Vehicles delivers underground battery loaders and trucks with zero exhaust emissions. With over 400,000 operating hours underground and 10 years of experience, today, most battery loaders and trucks operating underground use Artisan Vehicles technology. Artisan Vehicles is part of Sandvik, belonging to the business area Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology, Load and Haul Division.
