Roof Bolter Remote Control
Underground mines operating in hard rock environments.
Keeping workers safe before and during the installation of the roof bolts is a critical challenge for mine operators. For safety reasons, workers are not permitted to enter a tunnel until the roof has been properly secured – and to properly secure a roof requires 1M long bolts inserted into the rock and tightened.
The installation of the bolts at even intervals prevents rock or debris from falling onto workers.
A wireless remote control system is used to operate the roof bolter machine. Holes are drilled and bolts are tightened from a safe distance away from the unsecured tunnel.
- The controller is specifically designed for the roof bolter application
- The controller battery can last an entire shift before needing recharged.
- The roof bolter remote control system is configurable with frequencies and identification codes to allow multiple systems to operate in the same area without interference.
- The rugged construction of the machine control unit ensures reliable and continuous operations.
