High-precision cutting depth control

Selective mining driven to the max

Precise control of the cutting depth is a vital requirement that surface miners need to meet for selective mining, the production of level surfaces, and grading. Cutting depth and cross slope are set and controlled via the hydraulic height adjustment feature of the track units.

Control systems

  • Manual or automatic adjustment of the cutting depth using the hydraulic height adjustment feature of the track systems.
  • Cutting depth control by scanning the level of an existing surface using sensors installed at the side plate.

  • One or two masts equipped with laser receivers can be installed on the left and right side of the machine. These laser receivers are connected to the automatic cutting depth controller. Hence very levelled horizontal surfaces and slopes can be generated.
  • When a GPS receiver is connected to the automatic cutting depth controller, predefined profiles can be cut after programming the receiver accordingly.
