For the excavation of soft to medium strength rock formations, roadheaders are highly capable. In underground mining operations, they are widely used. In soft rock mining industry, the use of these machines is for both development and production. This is true for particularly coal, industrial minerals and evaporitic rocks. They are extensively used for tunnel excavation in soft ground conditions in civil construction. The use of these machines is also common in the enlargement and rehabilitation of various underground structures. If the need arises to construct openings of different sizes and profiles, roadheaders come into use as they have the ability to excavate almost any profile opening. These machines are capable of excavating harder and abrasive rocks because they have a high cutting power density due to a small cutting drum.Roadheaders are highly cost-effective due to their flexibility, mobility and selective mining capability. There has been an agreement between Maheshwari Mining and NHI Engineering EPC Company. According to this agreement, Maheshwari Mining will purchase roadheaders manufactured by them and supply them to India.
