Sandvik Strengthens i-series Range With Latest Loader

This article originally appeared in Australian Mining

Sandvik has introduced the LH517i intelligent loader with a design that aims to meet customer expectations by being safer, more reliable and efficient.

The Swedish equipment manufacturer has complemented the design with in-built intelligence that promises lower underground operating costs and improved connectivity.

Sandvik’s first i-series loader was designed in response to 240 customer suggestions collected in customer forums that took place in Australia during 2015.

It used the data to reduce the operating cost of the product through smarter placement of key service areas, while also considering the safety and working comfort of the service team.

Contractor Barminco was one company involved with the LH517 customer forum in Perth.

Barminco Australia general manager plant, Peter Campain, said Sandvik had taken the majority of the customer suggestions from the forum and added them to the LH517i.

“The Sandvik LH517i continues to improve the maintainability and reliability of the loader and reflects the design philosophy used in the Sandvik TH663 truck which has given us great service,” Campain said.

Sandvik has matched the LH517i with the TH551i truck, considering their designed payload capacities.

The Sandvik LH517i features the latest Sandvik Intelligent Control System and My Sandvik Digital Services Knowledge Box TM on-board hardware as standard for product health monitoring and faster trouble-shooting.

Sandvik has taken flexibility for customers interested in tele-remote or full automation into account by having the unit ready for automation, requiring just a few days to retrofit with Automine.

Olli Karlsson, Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology product line manager mass mining loaders, said the introduction of the LH517i would lead the way of the intelligent loader range.

“It highlights Sandvik’s desire to be the technology leader in the industry with smart and flexible digitalised solutions for new generation of mining,” Karlsson said.

“In the Sandvik LH517i, we have aimed to reduce the total cost of ownership by improving equipment maintainability and component lifetime.”

Sandvik has improved the operator’s compartment by designing a more spacious and ergonomic cabin with increased visibility.

“The increased focus on operator comfort in the new Sandvik LH517i emphasises Sandvik Product Area Load and Haul’s interest towards operator well-being and reduction of fatigue in underground operations,” Karlsson concluded.
