Boltec .04 / Mine Bolting Machine

Boltec .04
Boltec .04

Boltec .04 is a bolting machine developed to increase safety and flexibility in mining environments. The construction and vehicle architecture of the machine protects miners during working procedures that may expose them to a risk of rock fall or cave in.

The main feature with this concept is that the manual work required by the operator when loading and servicing the drilling head can be done, unlike today, in absolute safety on the vehicle's deck, behind the cabin under a protective safety-roof.
