Solutions for mining and tunneling technology
R+W couplings stand for uncompromised reliability even in the most extreme conditions. Our components and complete solutions in the mining and tunneling industries prove this statement to be true.
As an example, our couplings are used at the world’s largest copper mine. Every day they are put to the test in an inhospitable environment measuring 4,300 m long, 3,000 m wide and 850 m deep. Several thousand tons of copper ore are extracted every single day using massive and complex bucket wheel excavators. R+W mechanical safety couplings are used to limit the force in the main and auxiliary drives so that extremely high cost excavator downtime can be avoided.
