What We Do
WE HELP YOU TUNNEL THROUGH ROCK
Critical component availability is key under the demanding and ever-changing conditions in tunneling. Underground change out is also a challenge, so get a greater wear life out of your parts with JADCO. Welding wear components onto machinery is an easy and effective way to protect and extend the life of your tunneling components.
Tunnel boring machines (TBM’s), also known as “moles”, are very tough machines exclusively used to excavate tunnels with a circular cross-section through a variety of soil and rock strata. They can be designed to bore through anything from hard rock to sand. TBM’s have the advantages of limiting the disturbance to the surrounding ground and producing a smooth tunnel wall. This significantly reduces the cost of lining the tunnel, and makes them suitable to use in heavily urbanized areas.
Many parts on a TBM can experience wear, as well as the support machines that extract the substrate. JADCO's unique steep products can add protection and extend the life of these components and help your team bore further faster, helping you meet and/or exceed costs and meet/exceed your deadlines.
