Raise Boring Rig (RBR)
The Raise Boring Rig (RBR) developed by Herrenknecht is designed for the construction of shafts in rock down to 2,000 meters in depth. Thanks to its compact design, it offers high flexibility even under space constraints and is therefore suitable for various applications in the mining industry. It has proven its worth with its modular design and its efficient center-free drive. Connection shafts for mining or penstocks for pump storage power plants can be constructed quickly and safely.
Boxhole Boring Machine (BBM)
The BBM technology was developed by Herrenknecht for the rapid and safe construction of vertical and inclined raises or shafts, so-called slot holes. It can be used in stable rock formations and enables drilling diameters of up to 1.5 meters with a maximum drilling length of 60 meters. In developing this technology, a particular focus was placed on improved occupational safety, higher productivity and an optimum mobility of the rig.
Mechanized construction of underground mining infrastructure
Based on its proven experience, Herrenknecht now provides an entire range of innovative machines for the mechanized construction of underground mining infrastructure. Whether for vertical access or production shafts, inclined vehicle access ramps, ventilation shafts or transport tunnels, Herrenknecht mining technology is designed for diameters of 0.3 to 12 meters and can reach depths of up to 2,000 meters.
