Key Benefits

  • Increase flexibility
  • Increase performance and efficiency
  • Reduce costs

Efficiently handle your surface mining material

In surface mining systems, including IPCC operations, efficient movement of materials is key to profitability. Operations that use the traditional methods of loaders and trucks for material movement incur great costs, as they must purchase and maintain such equipment, as well as dealing with capacity and productivity issues.

Comprising a mobile, track-mounted chassis with a rotatable receiving boom and discharge bridge, a Mobile Transfer Conveyor (MTC) provides continuous, efficient transfer of excavated materials to the further conveying system. Because it is self-propelled, it increases the horizontal and vertical range of the digging machine, such as a bucket wheel excavator, as it eliminates the need for hauling equipment or fixed conveyor moves.

Based on your specific application, we can design your Mobile Transfer Conveyor to include one or two conveyors, as well as lifting, luffing and slewing capabilities of any onboard conveyor. In this manner, the MTC can accommodate changes in width and height between your surface miner and your fixed conveyor system, without downtime.

Flexible and cost-effective conveying – Mobile Transfer Conveyors

Increase flexibility
As a moveable bridge between the surface miner and the fixed conveyors, the MTC increases flexibility for your operation.
Increase performance and efficiency
Efficiently bridging the gap between your surface miner and further conveyors, the MTC easily handles changes in width and height, allowing for continuous mining and reducing downtime required for moving fixed or shiftable conveyors.
Reduce costs
An MTC eliminates the need for expensive and inefficient hauling equipment or idle time required for moving fixed conveyors.

Mobile Transfer Conveyors built to order

We custom design and build our MTCs based on your specific application and mine strategy.

We can equip your MTC with a single conveyor or separate receiving and discharge conveyors.

The single-conveyor design does not require a transfer point for material on the machine. Rather, the receiving and discharge ends will lift or lower to accommodate material movement, while the structure slews as needed around a centre point.

Some applications require the MTC to handle incoming and discharging material at different heights simultaneously. In this case, we design the system to include separate, independent booms/conveyors with a material transfer point in the centre of the machine. The luffing range is greater with this design than with the single-conveyor design.
