Abstract
A data bank on bolter technology was assembled that included the state-of-the-art industrial equipment as well as new equipment currently under development for the Bureau of Mines. This information was augmented by visits to Bureau of Mines contractors, mine operators, and others to obtain a thorough understanding of present coal mine roof bolting safety and productivity problems. Using this background material and information, a series of roof bolter concepts was developed offering improved operator safety with minimum impact on productivity. The concepts developed utilize existing componentry and technology wherever possible. All of the concepts feature a fully protected operator station located 6 to 10 feet outby the active bolt line and the hazardous rotating machinery.
