Longwall Automation Helps Russian Mine Sets Production Record


What if you could improve your coal output by 90% or more without compromising safety or availability? These numbers are not fiction; these are production results from three mines running complete Cat® Longwall systems in Australia. One mine has set a production record by producing 330,000 tonnes (363,762 short tons) in a single week.

And the benefits go beyond increased production -- improved safety, increased machine availability and increased component wear life are also possible with a complete longwall system from Caterpillar.
