Concept Study Shuttle Car Cable Reel.
NTIS: PB/80-219371 :77 pages
Cable reel systems for shuttle cars were investigated to determine whether an improved system could be identified. Interviews and mine visits were conducted to better define limitations and problems with present systems. Although simple and relatively inexpensive, present cable reel systems are not fully satisfactory. Several concepts for a different technical configuration were formulated and evaluated. An all-electric system using electronic control and external sensors was recommended for further development.
