LKAB’s underground mine in Malmberget has been supplying iron ore products since the end of the 19th century. A large part of the production consists of processed into pellets for the European market. The mine consists of several scattered ore bodies, of which just over then are currently mined. This provides a complex production environment, which requires great flexibility and high efficiency.
”Good reliability and good working environment for operators”
Important for us at LKAB is high safety and a good working environment, and here the five scaling machines from Jama that are being used, necessary. Breaker and secondary scaling (ripping tools) are mostly used in production. In addition, we also have a basket with a roof that is used for inspections of the area. The service organization has a Wheel loader with Jama’s working platform (for media).
– The use of the machines from Jama is due to the good experiences gained during long-term use. They have good reliability and good working environment for the operators. We have also been sensitive to our request for improvements. It is perceived as easy to get in touch and answer questions both when starting up new machines and service/repairs of existing machinery.
