About: Made in Germany | Coal Mining Technology
They DIDN'T work all over the world,Mr Eickhoff,not down the 3/4 R seam at Bates Colliery,in Blyth,Northumberland ,UK,cos your long Machines were built for level coalseams..and the 3/4R seam was very undulating,which broke machines in two as they tried to ride over the steep hilltops ,then in the short steep swalleys they came off the face conveyor..plus,it was so wet,that the water coming in from the seabed was six times saltier than seawater,and found to be three times more corrosive!
Nothing,and I mean NOTHING,whether it was a shearer,face chocks,hoses,cables ,Gate panel box switchgear...nothing escaped from the damage that the water and associated humidity in the roadways,did to the face installations.
Caterpillar tracks wore out in a matter of two or three weeks,which usually lasted six months at other dry collieries,cos the sandstone strata we drove the roadways through,was high in Silica content,and the small stones like sand,when mixed with the corrosive seawater ,acted just like grinding paste on every moving part of all the machines.
At the finish,companies USED the 3/4R seam,as a testing ground for new machine prototypes....saying that if it works in the 3/4 seam at Bates,it will work anywhere...so that was in the mid-1970's...a long time ago!
pure engineering brilliance
MADE IN GERMANY
Germany technology all over the world number one made in Germany product 💚❤👍
Eu gosto muito da Alemanha ! Eles são muito criativo , sempre estão fazendo alguma coisa importante !!!
Stop Coal mining. Nature will punish you.
Best maker,, GERMAN MADE!!!
you guys build great stuff, then you get in your 3 wheeled cars ,stop off and pick up some dark black beer, some spoiled cabbage . then its home to the wife who used to be man. ahhh the father land.
I worked with BJD,AS but Eickoff was top quality not complicated circa 1990 but durable
Germans can do anything they want and why not let's talk about the advance tech of the machine rather than Hypocrisy.
I'm German and I go to California every year due to work, and everyone seems to be Asian there, the biotech firm i work for has alot of Asian people most who seem smart but all they do is walk around all day drinking green tea and coffee, but they never came up with anything.....they say Asians are smart but it seems they are only good at remembering taught knowledge but not expanding on it. In a couple more decades it USA seems like it will be another Asian nation..disgraceful
JORGE BUSH DESTROIED EVERYTHING WATHA HELLL YOU TALKING ABOUT
Germans dig Saar chasm?
@themagnussons they reck there land and air now they come over and take are land. i stand with you.
@CreativeCritisizm lol!!! so true....but don't you worry...like everything else the Chinese makes, it'll fall apart after several uses.....only ZE GERMANS can make such highly reliable equipment.
German Engineering = WORLDWIDE RESPECT.
@CreativeCritisizm also keep Chinese things out of Germany...
And what to think about the German rocket technology the Americans stole...
Over 60% of chinas coal comes from the US. We have by far most of the worlds coal. folks invest in coal because it will be around for a long time.
wheres his safety glasses? and even though I'll bet American machinery is really good, I'll take german over chinese. No exeption. and climate gate exposed the global warming scandal. just use clean coal until we can get nuke plants up. ya gotta start somethere.
Coal=contaminants into an environment
how to become a managing director of such a company?
