The BOOMER RC_M is a conceptual system intended to improve productivity and worker conditions by incorporating modularity into the mining productive workflow.
The concept explores the idea of modularity. it saves space in the workshop by organizing the modules in dedicated maintenance areas; it is easier and cheaper to combine, upgrade and repair the machine tools (drilling / bolting / scaling), offering the possibility to change the damaged module in the working place. The machine gets compact during the mine maneuvering and during work it facilitates the repositioning of the entire machine, getting the best view and safety conditions.
