There are many different types equipment in the mining industry, and it can be difficult to know what types are suitable for your process. The most popular types vary depending on whether the work is being carried out above or below ground. To provide you with some clarity on the many kinds out there, here’s a brief introduction of the tools of the trade and how they are important to the industry.
Drilling – Normally required to place blasting media in order to separate the ore from the surrounding material and to secure anchors for safe, civil engineering. If mining is taking place underground, drills are also used to ensure holes are large enough for the miners to get through. Another type is directional drilling where miners will use the tools and specific methods to create wells.
Crushing equipment – Is used to break rock and other minerals. Designed for maximum efficiency and high break-up rate, these are found in a range of different sizes for a range of tasks. It is specially configured to break down the hard rock to a manageable size in order to be transported. They are valuable pieces of equipment in the industry because they reduce the costs associated with handling larger sized material.
Winders and Winches – These are used for transportation of loads such as machinery, minerals and even workers, these pieces of equipment are vital to mining businesses. Their essential function is to hoist a load vertically (or sometimes horizontally), allowing access to mine shafts or oil rigs.
