Mine Cages and Shafts’ Complex Design Are Key to Safety and Efficiency
Besides the inward pressure exerted by the soil, the shaft is also subjected to friction, tension, and compression created by the moving and stationary load within it. The mine cages and skips must be made of the toughest alloys of steel to withstand tension. This is to protect the passengers and reduce the stress passed on to them through each conveyance cycle. Mine companies have to entrust the manufacture of shaft conveyances to reliable mine equipment manufacturers like Wabi Iron & Steel Corp. These companies follow the highest industry standards to ensure that their equipment perform well and last long, and employ highly skilled tradespeople. Engaging equipment manufacturers such as these will ensure the continuity and success of the mining operation.
