High performance loading
Flexibility guaranteed - whatever the job
WIRTGEN surface miners master material loading with superior ease. Huge amounts of mining material are loaded into transport vehicles via a conveyor system. Needless to say, however, that windrowing or discharging the material to the side for stockpiling are also part of the machine’s loading repertoire. This high degree of flexibility is owed to the height-adjustable and slewing discharge conveyor which can be adjusted precisely to any given mining parameters. Surface miners are designed as front or rear loaders, depending on the model, but powerful and steady loading is a common feature of all miner models.
Options of direct loading
Direct loading of a truck or a belt conveyor.
The miners’ powerful conveyor drive, continuously adjustable conveyor belt speed and wide, steep-incline belts with extra high ribs make sure that even large dump trucks are loaded to full capacity regardless of the job to be completed – and even when mining minerals of high density, such as iron ore.
