Sandvik crushes with on-face development

The company is expecting that the machine will herald a “breakthrough” in the area of in-pit crushing and conveying for the mining and quarrying industries. Perhaps the most significant aspect of the new machine, called the PF300, is Sandvik’s recently developed stability technology. Sandvik says the patent-pending technology allows the crusher to be loaded via hydraulic or rope shovels without any temporary support, keeping the system fully mobile but still rock solid under all conditions. The company said this not only keeps the machine’s availability at a high level, but also improves the positioning of the machine. The PF300 can either work in combination with a belt wagon, mobile transfer conveyors, or load bridges as the connecting downstream link to the face conveyor. Sandvik says it has delivered more than 120 mobile machines for surface mining and materials handling application, worldwide, over the past five years.
