Lars Engström, President of Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology, will leave Sandvik during 2019 after the appointment of a successor.
Sandvik has acquired privately owned Artisan Vehicle Systems, manufacturer of battery powered underground mining equipment, based in Camarillo, California, USA. The core technology is battery packs, electric motors, power electronics, software and control systems. Artisan's underground mining loaders and trucks are designed with these high-powered, highly reliable and field proven battery electric powertrains. Artisan is the market leader with most battery electric vehicles currently operating in underground mining.
In response to customer requests, Sandvik and Rock Technology is expanding its Ranger DX series of surface top hammer drill rigs with two non-cabin Ranger DXR versions for improved safety in the toughest quarry and construction applications.
Sandvik has acquired privately-owned Inrock, a supplier of rock drilling tools and services for Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) in North America. Headquartered in Houston, TX, Inrock is a market leader in pilot hole bits, reamers, guidance systems, accessories and services for the premium maxi rig segment within HDD.
As the next level of EU emissions regulations comes ever closer, manufacturer Sandvik has chosen Volvo Penta as the ideal provider of Stage V solutions for its mining equipment. With some of the toughest working conditions in confined areas, underground mining has many physical aspects to consider and more requirements than most industries for stringent rules on emissions.
Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology is expanding its range of scalpers with the launch of the new QE241 heavy-duty scalper. Compact in design and easy to transport, operations will benefit from the same features from Sandvik's Premium range of scalpers, but in a smaller-scale version.
Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology introduces its new Double TriSpec tool, which is intended for use in extremely abrasive asphalt milling conditions. In road milling, the greatest cause of tool failure is known as body wash – the premature wearing away of the steel body that surrounds and supports the vital brazed-carbide insert in each of the tools on the milling drum. When body wash occurs, the tool’s steel body becomes vulnerable to failure, and the tool must be changed long before the carbide tip has been fully utilized – resulting in downtime, lost production and higher labor costs.
Sandvik Mining & Rock Technology will be located in the Silver Lot, booth S5128, during CONEXPO-CON/AGG, March 7-11, 2017, in Las Vegas, Nevada, to learn about new developments in Mineral and Ground Tools for mining, trenching and road planing. Sandvik’s latest generation of patented carbide grades, manufactured using an innovative process technique with completely new raw materials, has made it possible to create new, extra-coarse, super-tough alloys with perfectly uniform grain structure. The benefit is that the tip’s material grade can be better matched to hard rock and soft rock applications.
