Cat Large Dozers - Made Here
When people talk about dozers, there's a reason Caterpillar comes to mind. It’s because of this place...and its people.
Cat® 16M3 and 18M3 Mining Motor Graders
Good road conditions are key to extending truck life, reducing maintenance, lowering fuel costs and reducing tire damage. As a result, cycle times are improved and more ore is produced at a lower cost. The 16M3 Motor Grader includes features that optimize operating cost reduction, uptime and performance improvements as well as enhanced safety for your mining operations.
The New Cat® D11 - Making The Best Better
How do you make the industry’s best large dozer even better? By listening to your customers. You asked us to keep everything you love about the D11, but to make it more productive and efficient to lower your overall costs. So we did. The D11 is safer, performs better, lasts even longer and delivers a more positive impact to your bottom line. r\ cat.com/d11

Cat® Automated Plow Systems
Today, Caterpillar is the market leader in the field of fully integrated and automated plow systems. Sophisticated Cat plow systems today operate fully automatically with drive powers of up to 2 x 800 kW and speeds of up to 3.6 m per second. Seam thicknesses between 0.6 and 2.3 meters (23.6 and 90.5 in) can be efficiently mined with this method. Plowing is the preferred longwall mining technique for seams below 1.8 m (71 in). The depth of cut is set via the electro-hydraulic support control system in connection with stroke sensors in the shifting rams of the roof support.

50 Years of Cat® Off-Highway Trucks
Caterpillar offers our customers an impressive array of industry leading off-highway trucks - including electric and autonomous trucks, and size ranges to meet most needs. But as impressive as our technology and line up is today, it all started with - and continues to share humble roots with - the Cat® 769, introduced 50 years ago. You would think that - with all the incredible technology and innovation that has transformed our product line - there would be little left of the 769 in today's trucks. But that's not the case. The dealers, engineers and customers who helped us shape the 769 deserve ongoing credit for our pneumatic front suspension and the incredible braking and retarding characteristics of our trucks today, as well as our commitment to quality. At Caterpillar, we understand our customers' application and safety needs, and are wholly committed to their long-term success. This is ingrained in our culture today - just as it was 50 years ago. And it will continue to drive our business well into the future. Congratulations to everyone who has been part of 50 years of Cat trucks!
Designing a Legend: The Cat D10 at 40

Steaming Across Panama: Bucyrus and the Digging of the Panama Canal
The Panama Canal is a 48 mile (77.1 kilometre) ship canal that connects the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. August 15, 2014, marked the 100th anniversary of its opening, and in 2016 a 9-year expansion project was completed. Join us for a look back at the major role Bucyrus played in the construction of the Panama Canal. The Isthmain Canal Commission for the Panama Canal construction project awarded their first steam shovel bid to Bucyrus (Caterpillar Inc. acquired Bucyrus International, Inc. on July 8, 2011) Ultimately, Bucyrus would be called upon to provide 70% of the equipment used to dig the canal. In the years since its construction, several projects have helped to widen and expand the Panama Canal. Cat and Bucyrus products have been involved in the construction and expansion of the canal throughout its history, making progress possible.
The Principle of Longwall Top Coal Caving (LTCC) - Russian
Компания Caterpillar имеет обширный опыт по проектированию секций крепи под особые горно-геологические условия. Механизированные комплексы с системой обратного выпуска компании Caterpillar позволяют отрабатывать пласты мощностью свыше 6 метров (20 футов). После того, как очистной комбайн прошел по зарубке нижней угольной пачки вынимаемой мощностью около 3 метров (9,8 футов), секции крепи продвигаются вперед и провоцируют верхнюю пачку угля к обрушению позади секций крепи на установленный в завальной части второй конвейер. Данный метод отработки с обратным выпуском позволяет увеличить извлечение запасов при лишь небольших дополнительных затратах. Данная анимация демонстрирует принцип работы.
Testimonial: Cat® 6015B
Hear straight from the people who have used the Cat® 6015B Hydraulic Mining Shovel first.
Cat® Activated Undercutting Technology
http://www.cat.com/en_US/campaigns/awareness/rock-straight-system.html. The newly developed Cat Activated Undercutting Technology has further improved the cutting process by activation of the cutting tools. Rather than a constant contact with the rock face, the individual pick very quickly “hits” the ore, greatly reducing the amount of heat generated. This results in less pick wear, lower energy consumption, less reaction forces and lower stress, enabling the excavation of hard rock using a small and compact machine. Initial underground trials have proven that the technology is feasible.
