Mechanical cutting equipment
The comprehensive range of Sandvik mechanical cutting equipment offers effective solutions for a wide range of underground mining and construction applications such as rapid-entry roadway development, demanding production settings without drilling and blasting, as well as boring of ore passes and ventilation shafts. Teamed with optimized Sandvik cutting technology and equipment, these solutions offer you higher productivity, longer service life and lower operating costs.
Our range of mechanical cutting equipment includes electrically powered and track-mounted bolter miners for constructing and securing roadways, continuous miners and borer miners for continuous extraction of coal and soft minerals, boxhole borers for boring circular passages, reef miners for low-profile mining, roadheaders for underground excavation and tunneling, and cutting attachments for excavators.
In addition to superior performance, all Sandvik mechanical cutting equipment offers extensive safety features. Flameproof products are tested in realistic conditions to ensure their suitability for use in coal mines. The onboard dust suppression and methane dilution systems are tested by specialized simulation software to reduce dust and improve visibility and ultimately to provide healthier and safer working conditions for the machine operators. Onboard dust scrubbers even further reduce exposure to dust and improve visibility. Bolter miners are equipped with protective canopies to make sure the roofbolter operators can work safely.
