Surface Mining

"The decision to use Sumitomo gearboxes was fairly easy. They offer extreme durability and reliability which are vitally important as in our operations – we are one of the five busiest quarries in the UK - we cannot afford breakdowns. Over the last few years, Sumitomo has become our preferred supplier of gearboxes: we already had a number of Sumitomo gearboxes in New Cliffe Hill quarry and have found the performance and back-up to be exceptional. We also benefit from commonality of spares and the fact that Sumitomo holds larger spares locally; however, we have had no requirement to call on them as yet."

"The challenge of designing and installing an elevated conveyor system in such a long tunnel was demanding but our design has proved completely successful. Of course, in the industries that we serve, reliability is all-important, that’s why we chose Sumitomo for this application."
