Engineering of Continuous Miner for the Coal Mining Industry

MJ Engineering was approached by a coal mining company to engineer a new continuous miner. We were tasked with not only creating a miner that used the latest technology but also one that could be cost effective.

We began by designing the miner using Pro/ENGINEER software to create a 3D CAD model. Our design team also provided the client with a complete drawing package including a BOM and aided in selecting and procuring the OEM parts.

The continuous miner, which has steel with chromium carbide overlay in the conveying path, meets all MSHA and ATEX safety requirements. It is also capable of mining up to 14.5’ high coal and comes with a remote control pendant and the latest in motor control systems technology.
