Epiroc Presents New Products at the Bauma Mega-Show

Published: 19/8, 2019

Epiroc has expanded its hydraulic tools line with additions aimed at increasing user productivity and maximizing investment, including pulverizer jaws for combi cutters with the introduction of pulverizer jaws for the CC 3100 combi cutter. Fitted with Epiroc’s coupling and positioning system (CAPS) which makes it easy to switch between jaw types on site to suit the work at hand, the full jaw range consists of universal (U), steel cutting (S), and pulverizer (P) jaws.

In addition, a new CC 1600 combi cutter model designed for carriers in the 13t-23t class features two powerful hydraulic cylinders with integrated speed valves for minimum cycle times and low fuel consumption. Fully protected by piston rod guards, the cylinders deliver virtually constant closing force that remains high even when the jaws are almost closed. Two jaws moving independently eliminate displacement forces on the cutter and the carrier, ensuring controlled demolition of unstable concrete walls, regardless of which jaw attacks the material first.

The MG multi grapple range has been redesigned to make it even more robust. To allow even better customization, the grapples can now be ordered with or without rotation device to enable operation of the base units in combination with tiltrotators. A new cutting wheel option is available for the ER/ERC 50-ER/ERC 3000 transverse drum cutters to quickly cut trenches with widths of 2.1-9.8 in (55-250 mm), and a depth ranging from 5.9 in (150 mm) with the ER/ERC 50, up to 27.5 in (700mm) with the ER/ERC 3000.


The latest in smart surface and underground mining

The “My Epiroc” platform, available via the web and mobile devices, offers new features for increasing fleet efficiency and safety. For safe and productive mechanized pipe roofing, the Boomer E2 hydraulic face drill rig eliminates manual handling of drill rods and umbrella pipes. This system improves productivity by providing an enhanced overview from the service platform near the actual work, with the pipe roofing system designed to benefit the whole operation. Leading developments in sustainability in mining through battery-powered, zero-emission equipment have been developed for a safer and healthier underground working environment. These include second-generation rigs for face drilling, production drilling, and rock reinforcement, as well as loaders and mine trucks.


Other developments

The Mobilaris position-based decision support system for tracking and finding equipment, vehicles, personnel, and overseeing infrastructure in real-time matches the increased capabilities of the DM series of drills equipped with RCS lite. This new version of the rig control system (RCS) boosts the efficiency and productivity of the DM30 II, DM45, DML, DM-75, and DM-M3 models with three levels of software and hardware system.

Epiroc’s new Powerbit underground drill bit range for tophammer drilling is said to use the company’s hardest steel. New head and bits include the new Coprod head and bit technology, which include a complete range of Powerbit drill bits that feature a more effective head with fewer parts. For drillers, this means easier handling, better hole quality, increased penetration rates, lower fuel consumption, and greatly improved productivity.

A new series of down-the-hole hammers - COP M6, COP M7 and COP M8 - are based on an upgraded technology concept to enable miners to drill larger holes without the need for a larger rig. Epiroc has also introduced its “a bit smarter” concept, a set of digital solutions that turn consumables into smart, connected components using customer data and the latest wireless technologies.
