Steel in mining

Steel is used in every aspect of mining. Building the mines requires structural steel frameworks. Steel fabrication has been used to create a wide range of equipment for mining purposes. In our modern age, this fabrication of steel is even more precise and efficient due to the use of computer-aided design technology.


Some of the advanced pieces of equipment that comes from steel fabrication and contributes to mining include:

  • Augers

  • Blades

  • Hammers

  • Rippers

  • Wheel Excavators and buckets

  • Wheel Loaders and buckets

  • Wheel dozers

  • Articulate trucks

  • Material handlers

  • Motor graders

  • Off-highway trucks

  • Track loaders
