New life for old bolter miners

New life for old bolter miners

The Sandvik Mining workshop in Brier Hill, Pennsylvania, rebuilds bolter miners and other Sandvik equipment for mines across the United States. Sandvik works in conjunction with customers on tailored rebuilds that help stretch capital, reduce maintenance costs and improve availability, reliability and safety.
Sandvik bolter miners are electrically powered, track-mounted continuous mining machines designed to excavate and install roof bolts simultaneously. First introduced in 2002, they are used to drive gate-road entries into coal seams to form panels for longwall mining.
