Exploration of the Innovation in Coal Mining Industry in Shanxi ProvinceSep 19,2011
The mining industry in China still concentrates on the coal mining, especially in Shanxi, where the mining resource and policy advantage are much better than other places. With the 100-year experience in mining equipment field and technological advantages, Sandvik's advanced alpine bolter miner which integrates driving and anchor protection together realizes the simultaneous operation of cutting, loading and shoring, and once-tunneling. It not only improves the efficiency greatly, but also creates the miracle of “zero injury” in underground mining.
In Aug., 2008, the coal enterprise seminar—“Look forward to the future and enjoy prosperity together” was held in Taiyuan, Shanxi. In this seminar, the conventioners discussed the current situation of Shanxi coal industry after the reform.
They also share Sandvik's understanding and prediction of the development of the global mining industry. The representatives of 30 enterprises of Shanxi attended the seminar and shared their anticipation of mine reform by modern mining technology.
Mostly, this seminar brought a question to the domestic mining machinery manufacturing industry: when will a high-performance, advanced and safe mining road-header be applied in the local mining industry?
