The BRH130 is a Roadheader in the 55t weight class with 160kW in cutting power. Designed for both mining and tunnelling applications, the machine incorporates a sliding system that allows 400mm of forward motion, thus allowing the machine to sump into the initial intrusion cut without the use of its tracks.
The BRH300/400 Roadheader is a heavy class machine in the 100t+ class with 300kW standard and optional 400kW cutting power. The machine comes in both a mining and a civil tunnelling version. The machine incorporates a sliding system that allows 600mm of forward motion, thus allowing the machine to sump into the initial intrusion cut without the use of its tracks.
The BRH178/400 Roadheader is a heavy class machine in the <100t class with 300kW cutting power. Designed to maximize productivity in a larger diameter tunnelling or mining environment, the machine is capable of cutting a face of 58 m² for the 178N and 68 m² for the 178H version.
As Roadheader technology has gained ground in both the mining and civil tunnelling world, it has brought with it a broad range of efficiency adding technologies such as onboard cutter guidance, GPS tunnel guidance, onboard bolting, continuous conveying, roof support technology and many other now proven advancements. All of these technologies can be supplied with BBM Roadheaders. For more information on product options and modifications, contact MEKTUNNEL.
