Sandvik Mining shows its rock technology

Sandvik will launch a number of drill rigs, including its latest addition to the DD422 series, at MineExpo next month.

Sandvik’s DD422iE uses electric battery power instead of a diesel engine, eliminating emissions during tramming. The patented electric driveline system on its latest automated mining jumbo enables battery recharging during drilling, the company says.

“We’re driving innovation throughout our entire portfolio, from new equipment to ever smarter customer services,” says Marie Brodin, vice president, marketing and communications, Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology.

“Depending on customer requirements, we can provide AutoMine for autonomous solutions and OptiMine for information management, or a combination of these two, all resulting in improved safety and productivity,” he says Sandvik, which points to 3D scanning as one of several new and innovative features available in its automation offering.

Sandvik will also launch the latest addition to its modular 400 underground range of ITH long hole drill rigs with automation capability while the newly-introduced top centre drill bits, “incorporating the most significant upgrade to face drilling bits in decades,” will be one of the Sandvik highlights at MINExpo.

In the field of comminution, among Sandvik’s latest range of crushers is the Sandvik CH865, its mid-range mining crusher for high-reduction tertiary and pebble applications.

The intelligent systems on Sandvik CH865 enable real-time performance optimisation, while smart, compact design solutions reduce dynamic loads and minimize engineering and installation work.

Sandvik and Getman Corporation’s global distribution agreement, under which Sandvik will be the exclusive global distributor of Getman products, will also be highlighted. Solutions offered include underground drilling, rock enforcement systems and aftermarket services.
