An operator of a large open pit mine in the Western US needed a replacement drive for the rope winch on one of its shovels. The winch, located inside the shovel’s housing, is used to draw the heavy-duty cable (rope) from the drum and pull it through the boom sheaves during routine rope replacement operations.
A major amusement park located in Orlando, Florida, needed a replacement drive for use on one of its attractions. The ride features boats that transport passengers through a series of greenhouses and gardens where many of the plants are grown hydroponically.
A U.S. open pit coal mine operator needed a replacement centrifugal clutch for its primary feeder breaker. The feeding and crushing machine utilizes a “flight chain” that moves the coal from a large tipped hopper into a rotating breaker head that crushes the coal into various sizes.
