In a world where productivity reigns supreme, Sandvik has unleashed the newest addition to its continuous miners MC series: the MC350. The continuous miner is designed for mid-size room and pillar applications and is equipped with all the functions expected to ensure maximum productivity, reliability and minimum cost of any seam.

“By using Sandvik continuous miners our customers benefit from more cost efficient operations,” says Bruno Reumueller, product line management, Underground Coal and Minerals at Sandvik Mining.

“Thanks to a higher weight class, shear-up capability and loading and conveying modules, our continuous miners can improve productivity by 10-20 percent compared to other continuous miners in their range. In addition, extended operating time between overhauls and a cost per ton that is equal or better than other continuous miners make this a very attractive offering.”

The new MC350 continuous miner can also be fitted with a proximity detection system to improve safety as well as a health monitoring function to provide advance warning of potential problems.

“It’s all about availability of the equipment and predictability in the operations and part of that is also our complete parts and service offering”, Reumuller said.

“Our service engineers ensure that our customers get the right parts, rock tools and service at the right time to ensure safe operation, low operating costs and long service life.”

The MC350 is part of Sandvik’s comprehensive continuous mining catalog, which includes the MC250, MC430 and MC470. Continuous miners are used to develop longwall panels for coal extraction, as well as for full-scale production in bord-and-pillar operations.
