Designers meet the challenge as low profile range expands

2007 Oct 19

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.
