Cascading Conveyor Cars

The signature of ADDCAR Highwall Mining is the unique Cascading Conveyor system that uses open conveyors to feed coal from the miner to the stacker conveyor without increasing fines. As the miner works its way into the seam, an end loader places Conveyor Cars onto the launch vehicle, where they’re hooked up without interrupting coal flow. This makes the ADDCAR highwall mining system the only true continuous mining process above or below ground. In addition to carrying coal to the stacker, Conveyor Cars transfer forward thrust from the launch vehicle to the miner.
