A special front-end cutter allows preparing long faces for coal mining faster and makes drifters work safer.
There are only two such machines in Ukraine. The third Corum machine will operate at the Pavlograd Mine Group.
The capacity of the machine is 1.5 tons per minute. The machine can increase the speed of the excavation to 10 meters per day. With the use of the new machine the miners can commission a new long face 30% quicker, saving a whole month on the preparation of each face. (Ukrainian metal)
