Efficient and Environmentally Sustainable Raw Material Extraction
Selective extraction makes it possible to mine raw materials with a high level of purity. The material, which is extracted in an environmentally friendly manner without drilling or blasting, is continuously deposited behind the machine in a windrow and then loaded onto trucks with other equipment.
In this context, refraining from drilling and blasting makes it possible to conduct efficient mining operations close to industrial sites and other infrastructure such as pipelines or high-voltage power lines, which ultimately results in the optimized exploitation of the deposit.
Powerful Cutting Drum Unit
The cutting drum is designed specifically for demanding windrow applications in soft rock, such as coal or salt. Maximum cutting performance combined with the ideal use of engine power and low specific fuel consumption allows raw materials to be mined in an extremely cost-effective process. Six different adjustable cutting drum speeds ensure that the machine can be perfectly adapted to the material being extracted. This leads to a significant reduction in pick wear, minimal diesel consumption, and increased productivity, which translate into an impressive daily output and low cost per ton of extracted material.
