TELEHANDLERS FOR QUARRIES AND MINING SITES

Versatility and operational flexibility are the main characteristics of Dieci telehandlers and of its other vehicles, thanks to the adoption of special technological expedients and quality components, they are perfect as they guarantee extreme performance as required for works in mines, quarries and tunnels.
With the wide range of telehandlers you will always have the right vehicle to perform maintenance work on conveyor belts, chain devices, ventilation systems, and cope with the many unforeseen needs that can occur everyday in these activities.
While, the giant dumpers, designed expressly for mine work, allow important loads and are absolutely unique for their strength and manageability.

MINES, QUARRIES AND TUNNELS

One of the primary activities for man, which began even before agriculture, is the mining of minerals from mines and quarries. Although it consists in an activity with a high environmental impact, it constitutes the foundation of all other productive activities and, consequently, of the development and well-being of our society.

There are four basic mineral extracting methods: from mines or from open-pit quarries, which are the most common; or from underground mines and quarries which are accessed through shafts or tunnels; the last method is the extraction of minerals and fuels through boreholes.

The difference between mines and quarries basically depends on the material “cultivated” (in mining cultivation is the systematic exploitation of quarries and mines): metal ores, precious stones, refractory products and fuels are extracted from mines; marble, ornamental stones and building stones such as sand gravel, and peat are extracted from quarries.

Whether quarrying, mining or tunneling, these activities have in common: the extreme conditions, the dangerousness and the harshness of the work.

Dieci’s experience gained in these sectors, and the continuous feedback with its customers, has allowed to develop over time a series of special machines and equipment specifically designed for this type of activity: heavy, extreme and dangerous.

Versatility, power, compact dimensions, fluidity of movements, ease of use and dedicated technical solutions guarantee the best results in extreme conditions.

The Dieci Research & Development Centre is constantly working to find the best aesthetic and ergonomic solutions: the end result is the perfect synthesis of style and comfort.

TELEHANDLERS FOR MINING – FIELDS OF APPLICATION

Underground mines

In every mining plant, handling and maintenance operations are always burdensome, as they take valuable time away from production processes.
Dieci will always be ready where heavy machinery is used, to provide ideas, means and equipment capable of carrying out and speeding up all the necessary operations: telehandlers for moving people and objects, agile and compact truck mixers that are perfectly suited to work in tight spaces, powerful dumpers for material disposal operations.

Open-pit mines and quarries

Routine maintenance operations become truly titanic enterprises in open-cast mines and quarries if the appropriate equipment is not available.
With the use of Dieci telehandlers and equipment, these operations will be speeded up and simplified. The natural versatility that has always characterized Dieci’s vocation has made it possible, over the years, to create specific equipment for every type of intervention: cylinder maintenance, pneumatic devices disassembly, pipe handling for piling, transport and loading of semi-finished marble slabs. The handling of heavy and bulky loads has now become the normality for Dieci vehicles.

Tunneling

The construction of tunnels can also be assimilated to the mining activity as regards the type of work. Tunnels are excavated within the mountain reliefs to improve road and rail network connections. Also in this sector, as a result of Dieci’s experience and the versatility of its vehicles, telehandlers are used as multipurpose vehicles for different applications.
Certain characteristics, such as boom length, lifting power, mobility and the possibility of rotation, make the Dieci vehicles ideal when equipping tunnels, when energy, lighting, communications and above all forced ventilation ducts have to be installed, which are essential many kilometers away from the tunnel entrance.

Technical solutions

Self-levelling outriggers
A number of telehandler models are equipped with self-levelling outriggers, which help to keep the vehicles stable on uneven ground and make them ideal for reinforcing rock faces.

Additional ventilation filters
These additional filters are added to the cabin ventilation system to prevent the operator from breathing potentially harmful substances.

Certified “explosion-proof” vehicles
The specialised vehicles of the dedicated tunnelling line are “explosion-proof” certified, enabling them to operate underground.

Specific equipment

Gripper for cylinders

This gripper has been designed to handle various types of cylinders. The possibility of rotating and tilting makes it indispensable in maintenance operations of large machinery such as dumpers and mine excavators.
