Bucket Wheel Excavators
We are a supplier of used and refurbished heavy mining equipment such as bucket wheel excavators (BWEs).
BWEs are heavy mining machines for mining of raw materials and overburden material. There is a variance in design and depending on block width, cutting height and site conditions a distinction is made between compact and large bucket wheel excavators. The material to be mined is also crucial which type of bucket wheel excavator is used. In most cases, the excavated material is then loaded onto a belt wagon and transported away by a belt conveyor system.
The construction of BWEs can be made up of the following main components: The bucket wheel with the buckets is attached to the wheel boom with the main gearbox. This is mounted on the C-frame of the superstructure so that it can be swivelled vertically. The transfer boom is also mounted on the superstructure and can be swivelled horizontally. The material flow thus goes from the bucket wheel to the wheel boom, is then thrown onto the transfer boom and then passed on to the next system. The machine's crawler chassis is located on the undercarriage.
Our range of used and reconditioned machines enables us to keep delivery times to a minimum until implementation on site.
