SIC Mining Machines proceeds with upgrading of rotor equipment
“In 2011 open-pit mining equipment sales rates were amounted to 24% in overall sales structure. We are planning to increase this index due to rotor excavators upgrading and spare parts manufacturing at Donetskgormash plant and Krivorozhskiy machine building plant”, - stated Sergey Rybalko, director of open pit mining equipment division, SIC Mining Machines.
SIC Mining Machines technical specialists developed special upgrading program for each model of excavator. It is subject to mechanical and electric parts development and automation systems implementation for a range of technical processes. The solutions suggested by engineers will help to reduce the extraction time per ton of products and decrease the electric power consumption. Moreover, due to these implemented modifications we will enhance the working comfort and labor capacities of maintenance staff.
“The major part of rotor equipment, manufactured at Donetskgormash plant in the late 1990s and till the present moment is successfully used in open pits and opencast coal mines of Russia and Ukraine. Life is going ahead. The development of technologies and strict requirements of mining Companies dictate the necessity of continuous improvement of the equipment. After this upgrading activity all standard sizes of rotor excavators will have the new consumption options and I’m sure it will be appreciated by our Clients”, - admitted Sergey Rybalko, director of open pit mining equipment division, SIC Mining Machines.
