Transmin Switches to Atlas Copco Hammers for their Rockbreaker Range
BA Equipment Managing Director Campbell Nunn explains; “The switch to Atlas Copco from Rammer reflects the technical advantages of the new Atlas range over its rivals, as well as the incredible scope of supply and support delivered by Atlas Copco.”
Atlas Copco is now the world’s largest supplier of industrial breakers and attachments. The current MB (medium) and HB (heavy) range of hydraulic breakers were introduced in early 2013 and boast a number of key improvements, most notably a significant improvement in power to weight ratio, marketed as ‘less weight, more power’. The reduced weight therefore requires less input power, resulting in lower operating costs over the lifetime of the equipment.
Transmin are a leading manufacturer of rockbreakers and hydraulic boom systems used in mining operations the world over to break down oversize rocks as they pass through the materials handling process.
In 2008 Transmin manufactured the then largest rockbreaker / hydraulic boom system in the southern hemisphere for Rio Tinto’s Mount Tom Price Mine in northern Western Australia. Nick-named ‘Big Bertha’, the machine has a 10m boom and 7m jib.
