Those parts numbered 11 to 18 constitute the assisted transmission system to reappear the drilling status of the roadheader in underground mining.
Currently, the ever-increasing application of roadheader in the underground is becoming an inevitable alternative in tunnel excavation and coal mining engineering.
When tunnel boring machines and selective roadheader excavate roadway from hard rock that its protodyakonov coefficients f are more than 8, their working construction and cutting tools impact and wear violently; at the same time, the working space is unrestricted and working environment is worse, so that their working effect is so poor that cost is high.
But in the hills between Oakland and Orinda, CA, one of the Nation's most labor-intensive highway projects wields a much different kind of tool: a 130-ton (118-metric-ton) roadheader. This piece of tunneling equipment is one of the largest roadheaders ever used in the United States.
There are various factors influencing the performance of roadheader in mechanized drivage operation, which mainly include the physical and mechanical properties of coal and rock and the structural parameters itself.
With the slower pit-bottom excavation work being completed in June 2010, one of those machines, the roadheader, was deployed in the west to join a continuous miner.
A longitudinal cutting head-type miner was first introduced in the former Soviet Union by modifying the Hungarian F2 roadheaders and in the 1970s in Estonia by modifying the Russian coal roadheader 4PP-3.
The tunnels were constructed with a single shielded TBM and a Roadheader in clay and day shale.
