Designers meet the challenge as low profile range expands
As Atlas Copco announces the launch of two new low profile underground vehicles, the Minetruck MT436LP and the Scooptram ST1030LP, M&C caught up with the designers to find out more.
High metal prices coupled with a shortage of skilled labour in certain countries have led to a boom in mechanized low seam mining. Atlas Copco was quick to adapt its underground vehicle range to meet the needs of companies engaged in low seam mining, a move reinforced by the launch of two new low profile models.
Epiroc operated under the trademark “Atlas Copco” prior to January 1, 2018.
