The AM-50z-w is a well-proven and reliable roadheader. It is characterized by simplicity of use and operation.

The AM-50z-w is a roadheader is intended to drill roadheadings of with a cross-section of up to 16.4 m² (low version) and up to 22 m² (high version) in rocks with a compressive strength of up to 60 MPa. The machine can be used underground in coal mines in methane and non-methane fields with „a”, „b” and „c” class of methane explosion hazard as well as “A” and “B” class of coal dust explosion hazard provided that it is to be de-energized at maximum methane concentration increase up to 2%. The roadheader may be marked with the CE mark or with the WUG-GM-410/95 approval mark.

For the AM-50 roadheader FAMUR can offer:

  • brand new models
  • major repairs and overhauls of roadheaders (manufactured by FAMUR or other manufacturers)
  • repairs of roadheader components (own and external production)

  • high maneuverability
  • easy operation and maintenance
  • roadheader’s hydraulic system adapted to supply external hydraulically driven receivers with a standard pressure of 12 MPa or 14 MPa, with the possibility of pressure regulation up to 22 MPa
  • surfaces exposed to wear covered with materials with high abrasion resistance
  • easy assembly of the roadheader
  • easy underground transport of each component/subassembly
  • compact design enabling quick assembly and disassembly, which shortens the time of changing the roadheader location
  • high performance and reliability in operation
  • hydraulic working platform with a canopy lifting mechanism
  • sector spraying system
  • multifunction drilling unit
  • closed cooling system to reduce the roadheader’s water consumption
  • automatic central lubrication system
