Clarks Mining Services were established in 1980 and are Australia's leading manufacturer of specialised crawler tracked drill rigs for the coal mining industry.
Clarks Mining required a crawler track with lifting capability. To achieve this they wanted to incorporate a crawler track witha Safetech hydarulic scissor lift table. This would allow personnel to drive the lift into mines and then raise the platform to a desired height to assist with drilling and maintenance.
Clarks Mining needed a solution for drilling operations to cause less strain and back injury to operators from constantly standing upright and trying to perform drilling with hand-held drills.
A custom-built Safetech ASD2-3000 2 tonne Double Scissor Lift Table, specially constructed for undergroung mining.
Benefits of this Product:
Drilling operations can now be performed both vertically (up & down) and horizontally on both sides of the machine. Additionally, advance or probe drilling can now be carried out in-seam for geological, geo-technical and gas and water drainage purposes.
The combination of the Lift Table and crawler track significantly reduced the risk of injury to operators and increased daily productivity.
