The mining industry is a necessary element to enjoying daily fundamentals such as the homes we live in or the roads we drive. Like many other critical industries, equipment uptime and availability are key to running a smooth and efficient mining operation. Our detailed maintenance program and diverse, expert technicians focus on maximizing the heavy equipment uptime mining companies need so they can concentrate on producing aggregate, metals, and minerals for society.
Read on to find out more about the heavy equipment that keeps quarries and mines operating seamlessly:
Bulldozers are used for various tasks in the mining industry. From stripping topsoil to pushing material, these powerful machines can be the workhorse of an operation. In addition to pushing, dozers can also be fitted with different rear attachments, such as a ripper, to loosen compacted material so that it can be moved more easily.
Haul Trucks are the transportation tool of a mine. These large dump trucks can range in size from 50 ton to 400 ton. Towering over your common road trucks, they move massive piles of material in each load, and are now operating autonomously in some mines around the world.
Dual Boom Drill Carriers like this one are used in underground mining to drill holes vertically, horizontally, or at an angle. The orientation of the drill depends on the results of the blast that the operator is looking for. Once holes are drilled, they are loaded with a blasting agent and eventually detonated to dislodge the aggregate into smaller pieces that are then hauled away for further processing.
Since no two mines are the same, we work with every mining customer ahead of time to design, procure, and set up the perfect fleet management for their specific operations.
