Mobile Transfer Conveyors
Mobile Transfer Conveyors (MTCs) are "multi use" equipment that are used to both increase performance and flexibility of many mining operations. Mobile transfer conveyors work as a flexible connection between a mining machine and bench conveyors. Moreover, mobile transfer conveyors are easily relocatable and positionable, improving performance, flexibility and efficiency.
Mobile transfer conveyors for increased flexibility and performance
TAKRAF's mobile transfer conveyors are designed to handle a wide range of capacities of various bulk material types. Our crawler-mounted machines improve the performance of any mining operation and function as flexible links between mining machines and bench conveyors. In this manner, they are thus able to increase the shifting width of the system.
Our range of mobile transfer conveyors
Our machines are all specifically designed to our client's unique requirements and incorporate various solutions according to their specific application. Our machines can be equipped with one single conveyor or separate receiving and discharge conveyors.
Mobile transfer conveyor with a single conveyor
A mobile transfer conveyor with a single conveyor is a common solution without having a material transfer point in the center of the machine. The receiving and discharge sections of the conveyor can be lifted to adjust to various transfer points and a slew bearing between the machine's undercarriage and superstructure allows for a slewing movement of the superstructure.
Mobile transfer conveyor with independent conveyors
Mobile transfer conveyors are also often employed to bridge different bench level heights and thus many machine designs include two independent boom conveyors.
A mobile transfer conveyor with separately liftable booms and a material transfer point in the center of the machine allows for a greater luffing range as compared to single-boom machines.
Another solution providing maximum flexibility is a mobile transfer conveyor with separately liftable and separately slewable booms. Further to a slew bearing between undercarriage and superstructure, a second slew movement between the receiving boom and the discharge boom is also provided for. In order to guarantee machine stability at any slew or luffing position, the receiving boom is thus equipped with a counterweight and consequently, the service weight of such a machine is higher than that of other machines.
The TAKRAF advantage

TAKRAF delivered the machine as a turn-key project. The MTC is equipped with two booms, which are independently either liftable and slewable.
6,000 m³/h 1.6 t/m³ 42 m 72 m from 5.5 m to 13.5 m above level from 1.9 m to 23.0 m +/-180° (undercarriage against superstructure) and +/-100° (receiving boom against superstructure) 1.6 m 90 kPa
Value for Money
- Our machines operate as flexible links between mining machines and bench conveyors and increase the shifting width of the system
- TAKRAF is able to provide numerous machine options, ranging from a machine with one single conveyor, to machines with separate liftable boom conveyors and finally to machines with separate liftable and separately slewable booms
Apron FeedersAn apron feeder is a reliable feeding method for when the material to be conveyed is lumpy, abrasive, heavy, high temperature, or where a feeding solution more robust than a traditional belt feeder is required. Apron feeders are designed to feed material at a desired volumetric rate to downstream equipment and convey material on a series of overlapping pans attached to multiple strands of a heavy tractor crawler-type chain.
Belt Conveyors - for mining applicationsBelt conveyor systems continuously transport all forms of material, including excavated and crushed rock, in an efficient manner due to their 100% effective availability. They cover a wide range of applications, from mining or extraction to in-plant or overland where they convey material over long distances, passing through curves and rough relief areas.
Belt FeedersBelt feeders are short belt conveyors that are specifically designed for material flow regulation, extracting material from one area and ensuring that downstream equipment receives the appropriate volume
