Electrically powered, track-mounted continuous miners from Sandvik are designed to cut coal and soft minerals in a continuous process, eliminating the need for drilling and blasting. Sandvik design engineers focus on health and safety as well as total cost of ownership to create highly productive and reliable continuous mining solutions.
Sandvik double-pass miners use the most advanced cutting technology for the continuous mining of coal and soft materials. Continuous miners cut and gather the material simultaneously and convey it into shuttle cars, haul trucks or a continuous haulage system. They are typically used for full-scale production in room-and-pillar mining operations. The flameproof design of these machines is certified according to national regulations, such as MSHA (USA), SANS (South Africa) and DGMS (India).
