WK-12C Rope Shovel

Wk-12c rope shovel is large-scale open-pit mining equipment developed by our company. It gathers years of successful experience in design, technology and manufacture, and adopts a lot of advanced technologies at home and abroad. It can be applied to stripping and mining of large open-pit coal mine, iron mine and non-ferrous metal mine.

Main parameters:

Rated capacity: 22t

Standard bucket capacity: 10m³

Bucket capacity range: 10m³~16m³




WK-12C rope shovel is mainly used for the excavation of blasted rock and ore in large open pit coal mine, iron mine and non-ferrous metal mine and also widely used in water conservancy construction projects. It can be matched with 80-134t mining dumping truck or 100t railway dumping truck or 800t/h-1500t/h self-movable crush station. It is suitable for medium open cast mine with an annual output of about 10 million tons.


01.AC variable frequency system has advantage of high efficiency and saving power, the AC motor has low failure rate and high availability, it’s advanced technology represents the development trend of speed regulation system.

02.The high position propel driving system improves the transmission efficiency of tumble and track pad; reduces the wearing level and prolongs the life time.

03.All transmission gears are made of high quality low carbon alloy steel by carburizing, quenching and grinding process (except swing gear ring), with large bearing capacity and better service life than surface quenching gear.

04.The gear rack structure is made of heavy duty high manganese steel casting rack with good weld ability, and the alloy steel forged pinion with high efficiency and low maintenance cost.

05.Optimized material and heat treatment process improve the stress concentration and fatigue life of gear and shaft; the operator's cab is elaborately designed to improve its safety and become more comfort.
