J.H. Fletcher & Co. to Display Five Machines at MINExpo™ 2016On .
Hosted by the National Mining Association, MinExpo is once again scheduled to take place from September 26th through the 28th, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. With more than 2,000 exhibitors, it is the largest mining show on and under earth.
J.H. Fletcher & Co. to once again participate, showcasing a leading exhibit. With a booth space of 4,500 ft² and five pieces of equipment, Fletcher’s display continues to grow along with the company’s legacy in mining equipment.
Fletcher Roof Bolters
Among the leading edge equipment, Fletcher will display two roof bolters from their complete line of roof control equipment. The company has a long developed history in the roof bolting industry. Fletcher prides itself in being a pioneer in the production of roof bolters, along with inventing and receiving patents on aspects of the automated temporary roof support system (ATRS).
Fletcher will feature the model N3016-AD/E and the N3112-AD/E roof bolters. Both are designed for operation in narrow heading conditions. The development of each of these pieces of equipment began as a partnership, with Fletcher working directly with customers to resolve current day issues. The problem faced by many narrow heading operations, is the use of jacklegs and the risks they pose. Each of these Fletcher bolters was designed with the intent to eliminate jacklegs, and mechanize the bolting process.
Fletcher Drill Jumbos
Fletcher roof bolters are accompanied by an entire line of machinery. For over 50 years, Fletcher has been producing drill rigs for the mining industry. In the early 2000s, Fletcher developed and dedicated an entire line of equipment to the Metal/Non-Metal segment. With this growth, along with joint customer projects, Fletcher has developed an extensive line of Drill Jumbos.
At MinExpo 2016, Fletcher will display three drill jumbos from their product line. Two of these models include the J151-AD/E and the J101-AD/E. Both machines were designed for use in narrow vein applications and to enable cost effective drilling with the flexibility for more efficient heading to heading moves. The third to be displayed is dual boom drill jumbo, model J251-LS. This machine is built for larger headings and designed to handle face, bench, and roof bolt drilling requirements.
