The ‘Most Innovative Product’ in Poland
A group of mining and business authorities in Poland have honoured the Sandvik MR341 roadheader with the distinction of the country’s “Most Innovative Product.”
The award was presented to Sandvik Mining during the 2nd International Silesia Innovatica Congress 2014. The biennial conference drew many attendees representing coal producers, scientific institutions, technological universities and mining equipment manufacturers.
Sandvik MR341, successor to the well-proven Sandvik MR340 roadheader, is designed for the European coal industry. Launched February 2014 in Zeltweg, Austria, Sandvik MR341 includes numerous safety features, such as a radio remote control for all machine functions and a larger working platform for installing roof support.
“This award affirms our core commitments in product development, which are always safety and productivity,” says Bruno Reumueller, product line manager, UG Coal & Minerals at Sandvik Mining.
