Wheeled transport is a traditional transport mode of material and personnel in both surface and underground mines. It can be implemented wherever the inclination of the transport route does not exceed 15°. This mode of transport is mainly used in underground mines utilizing mechanized mining methods like room and pillar, block caving, open level stopping and drift mining, where a rich network of roadways are created to extract the orebody.
Ferrit provides complex solutions of moving material and personnel and by combining a monorail, a ground rail and a wheeled modes of transport, is creating a very effective and efficient transport system.
In addition to the universal transport vehicles, Ferrit offers crawler multi-purpose mining machines designed for dinting of swollen mine floors, recovering/expanding operations of roadways, loading of rock, breaking of rock by hydraulic hammers and drilling holes for either blast holes or support holes.
In cooperation with the South African manufacturer of wheeled vehicles AARD, Ferrit jointly develops wheeled equipment for use in potentially explosive areas with gas and coal dust presence.
Through this cooperation, Ferrit can offer comprehensive transport solutions customized to specific conditions and customer requirements.
