Roadheaders, Continuous Miner, Mining, Tunnel Tunneling Machines

Roadheading, (Roadheaders) Tunneling and Heading Systems

Webster Machines supply roadheading machines capable of excavating tunnels from as small as 2 metres in height and width through to tunnels as large as 7.5 metres high and 10.5 metres in width on a "single pass" basis.

We have supplied roadheader machines worldwide manufactured by Wirth, Voest Alpine, Eickhoff, Dosco & Long Airdox.


Webster Machines also supply the material handling conveyor infrastructure required to support the high volume production roadheading machines provided by Webster Machines.


Roof and Rib Bolting

In the event of the machine cutting where the heading requires a bolting pattern to roof and rib, we can supply the roadheader with a purpose designed bolting rig That will enable the machine to cut, clear, and bolt both rib and roof in a cyclic operation. In the event of unstable conditions or faulted areas, we can set the bolters to work as close as 900 mm to the heading face. In areas where only faulted areas exist, we can provide a working platform fitted with bolting pods that enable the operator to quickly swing the platform in to position (fixed to the cutting boom), and by way of simple leg drills can bolt a faulted area in a very fast, and economical way.
