For missions underground Ref: MMPR 473

Benefits to the industry: The PAUS MiniCa (mining car) range is a well-engineered concept for the transportation of passengers and materials and for special missions underground.

Fast and manoeuvrable, tough and strong, the PAUS MiniCa include hydrostatic or hydrodynamic all-wheel drive, high ground clearance (above 300mm) and central lubrication bar, as well as driving comfort thanks to innovative suspension, shock absorbers and oscillated axles.

For the most demanding Ref: MMPR 472

Benefits to the industry: Famur is one of the world leaders among the manufacturers of longwall systems. The company focusses on the production of technologically advanced and highly efficient automatic longwall systems equipped with machine control and monitoring systems, technical processes and systems along with IT support, which significantly improve the safety and efficiency of work.

Long experience in the industry enables the company to design and manufacture machines that are capable of working particularly challenging underground conditions.

The future of motion Ref: MMPR 471

Benefits to the industry: TFM’s Meilller conventional square rear end rigid tipper body features optimum payload, fit-for-purpose design, a multi-stage nitride hardened cylinder and high capacity axial piston pump. Standard equipment includes: boxed tail lights, LED rear lights, rear under run bumper, mud flaps, reflective tape, and a spare wheel carrier on the headboard with winch and reverse buzzer. Optional extras include air and fuel tank protection, strobe light, a 4,5kg fire extinguisher and tail light protector.

For a stone quarry solution Ref: MMPR 470

Benefits to the industry: KSC-Silent Hydraulic Breakers are lean and compact due to the modern and narrow design of the single unit casing that encapsulates the beating body.

The reduced dimension of the longitudinal section grants a higher structural sturdiness and resistance during operation. These high performing and reliable breakers come with super silenced configuration along with special anti-vibration buffers offering maximum restitution in beating energy and minimum stress to operating arm.

Earth moving Ref: MMPR 469

Benefits to the industry: Hyundai earthmoving equipment, available exclusively in Southern Africa from HPE Africa, encompasses backhoe loaders which have been well received by the local market. The robust H930s backhoe loader series is particularly well liked by businesses that need smaller machines, without having to make a substantial capital investment in large excavators and loaders.

Maintenance: Hyundai backhoe loaders, with a reputation for efficient performance, low operating costs and minimal maintenance requirements, are also popular with plant hire companies.

Sustainability: Hyundai H930s backhoe loaders are fitted with fuel efficient, low noise, environmentally friendly Perkins 2 tier diesel engines. Standard power shift transmission and a convenient gear/shift selector, enable fast, easy and efficient operation and precise control, even in arduous operating conditions.

All aboard Ref: MMPR 468

Benefits to the industry: Becker Mining South Africa’s hydraulic rail benders, which have been developed for bending and forming rails on railway lines in heavy industrial and underground transport systems on the mines, easily handle rail up to 40kg/m.

These rail benders – standard on many South African mines – are powered by 25 ton/250kN hydraulic cylinders and activated by two stage hand pumps to cope efficiently in harsh operating conditions. These robust rail benders are manufactured locally at the company’s Bellambie Mining & Industrial facility in Alrode, according to stringent quality and safety specifications.
Maintenance: For ease of maintenance, the pump and cylinder are detachable from the rail bender.

Faster, safer tyre change-outs Ref: MMPR 467

Benefits to the industry: Designed and built to strict Caterpillar specifications, Cat wheel rims help ensure better drive train performance and extended component life in off-highway trucks by combining the highest level of strength with the minimum amount of weight to maximise payload and decrease fuel costs.

By functioning as an integral part of Cat drive train systems, these rims help extend the life of all power transmitting components, as well as the suspension, bearings, brakes and tyres. This is why tyre selection and fitment is such an important part of the overall production planning on any mine. (Barloworld Equipment is Caterpillar’s southern African dealer.)

Caterpillar’s Quick Change Rim (QCR) system has revolutionised this practice and greatly contributed to improved production efficiencies by reducing change-out times to around two hours, due to fewer rim base removal and installation procedures. As a result, the system is proving particularly popular with large and ultra-size mining truck fleet owners.

Clean and green Ref: MMPR 466

Benefits to the industry: Advanced nano-fibre technology exclusively developed by Cummins has been proven to dramatically extend oil drain intervals, improve overall efficiency and decrease the total cost of ownership on a number of leading original equipment manufacturer (OEM) machinery and equipment that operate in the harsh South African mining conditions.

The latest breakthrough from the company’s filtration division is the Fleetguard FH239 Series Industrial Pro diesel fuel filtration system and all-in-one fuel/water separator.

The FH239 was developed to meet the needs of the OEM’s that operate in the tough African mining conditions and help reduce down time of heavy duty vehicles on mine sites by increasing the gap between oil and coolant changes.

Sustainability: Independent laboratory tests on fuel analysis revealed that the FH239 filtration system meets internationally-recognised ISO 4406 certification.
