Drive Stations

An open pit mine is a complex dynamic facility composed of many large mobile units and powerful conveyor systems, which are regularly and completely moved in line with the mining operation.

Conveyor lines are relocated with the help of so-called shifting crawlers. Drive stations, as well as take-up and deflection stations of very long conveyor systems often form independent units, which also have to be moved.

For this purpose, FAM developed very powerful drive stations mounted on skids or driven crawlers, which run in synchronism with the return process of the conveyor system. If they are not equipped with own crawler tracks, FAM specially designed transportation crawlers are deployed to lift and move the entire station.
