Bucket wheel excavator is a key machine to complete mining and excavation application in the continuous mining, transportation and discharge process. It is applied to the large-scale project with great amount of exploitation and long length of service, in particular, to applications in open-pit mines and large-scale earthworks. Bucket wheel excavator can operate continuously with high efficiency and low consumption. The bucket wheel excavator can be used for rock stripping operations as an alternative solution for drilling and blasting process. The machine can effectively reduce harmful emissions in aspect of environmental protection. Besides, bucket wheel excavator is applicable for the exploitation of soft mines in good occurrence conditions.
Depending on the equipment structure and rated production rate, the bucket wheel excavator can be categorized as discharge connecting bridge type for large-scale mining application, discharge boom type for compact type mining application and discharge connecting bridge type for giant mining application.
The bucket wheel excavator is a kind of mining machine which can work continuously. And it presents the features of small linear size, light weight, large excavation capacity, high production rate, excellent adaptability and outstanding energy conservation and environmental protection performance. The machine is of widespread applications in not only the overburden stripping and mining operations, but also the works for roads, dams, canals, artificial lakes, foundation construction of large projects, reclaiming farmland from waters and large open-pit stockyards. Our company can provide various standard type- and extended-length type bucket wheel excavators driven either by diesel engines or electric drives. The machines can also be tailor-engineered to suit the client’s the requirements.
