Going Easy on the Rock Formations
In locations where blasting isn’t even possible due to nearby houses, industrial facilities, or railway tracks, routes are now more frequently created by cutting the rock with surface miners. This more environmentally friendly method extracts the rock without vibrations.
Even as the carbide picks on the cutting drum continue to cut, the crushed stone is loaded onto trucks by a slewing discharge conveyor. Thanks to its uniform grain size, it can be used as a filler without further treatment. The road can now be paved without difficulty on the precision-profiled surface.
