The SMT Scharf Group is the global technology leader for derailment-proof monorails and floor mounted Duorail-vehicles in underground mining and tunneling. Our portfolio expansions and organic growth in the area of tunnel logistics and rubber-tyred vehicles have given us an even broader position as a comprehensive solutions provider, enabling us to offer our global customers individual solutions.
The Scharf brand has been known for high machine quality and reliability for over 80 years. Our solutions are the first choice when it comes to maintaining high safety standards in particularly challenging geological environments.
Today, we occupy the world market leader position in the global coal markets with more than one third of all installed monorails. We occupy a strong position in the field of transport solutions, which we will continue to expand. To this end, we will increasingly focus on the provision of complete transport systems in the future. In the area of underground battery-powered vehicles, we are already one of the global innovation drivers.
Safety, reliability, and efficiency top the list of requirements in underground mining and tunneling.
For efficient operation, personnel, materials, and other loads must be transported quickly and safely – regardless of difficult conditions. These essentially include changing steep gradients, limited height, restricted space, dust, etc.
SMT Scharf offers optimal customer-oriented solutions for all areas of underground mining: mineral mining, coal mining and tunneling. When it comes to transport solutions with rail-bound systems, we are at the top of the premium segment.
Regardless of whether people or materials are to be transported: For time- and route-optimized transport in different areas, we set the standards factors for safety, machine quality, high performance as well as gradeability and pulling force.
Scharf LEVliquid-cooled 90 kW electric motor with 655 Nm of torque, fed by a dielectric-washed 40 kWh battery, with a range of 220 km, will take you anywhere in your mine. And if that’s not enough, we have plenty more options for you.
100% electric, state-of-the-art battery and charging technology, safe and sustainable.
All this is in our Scharf LEV power pack.
SMT Scharf develops, manufactures and services transportation and infrastructure equipment for underground mining as well as for tunnel construction. Together with the SMT Scharf Canada - RDH (formerly RDH Mining Equipment) rangenof rubber-tyred diesel and electric vehicles we are committed to providing innovative and cost-effective ways to increase equipment productivity while decreasing costs for our customers.
Our Scharf chairlift system takes over the fast and safe passenger transport over longer distances with vertical curves in mineral mining. With max. transport speeds of up to 1.5 m/s, transport capacities of up to 900 persons/h are achieved, depending on the chair spacing. In addition to high efficiency, capacity and ergonomics, our chairlifts also have the advantage that miners can travel separately, which is an important benefit in the current pandemic situation.
