FR 160

FR 160 roadheader is a highly advanced machine combining advanced technical solutions, high technology and the highest class materials. The roadheader is equipped with cutting-edge data transmission systems and with an easy-to-use precision guidance system, radio remote control system and remote control system from the operator’s station. Advanced diagnostic systems watch over proper, failure-free operation of particular devices, guaranteeing safe working conditions.

The roadheader is made in the e-mine standard with advanced diagnostic functions of operation parameters and full monitoring on a mine surface.

The FR 160 is designed to excavate galleries in section up to 28 m2, both in useful minerals and gangues having a compressive strength up to 95 MPa. The machine is designed to operate in underground mines, in non-methane and methane fields with a longitudinal inclination up to ±18o and transverse inclination up to 5o, in ambient temperature of maximum +40oC.
