It doesn’t matter if your mining job takes you underground or keeps you
on the surface. What matters is how much material you produce and move,
how quickly you do it, and how much it costs you each shift.
If you’re not moving enough material, working as efficiently as you need
to, and saving (and making) money in the process, then it’s time for better
tooling. It’s time for Kennametal.
Longwall Drum and Continuous Miner Cutting Systems
Cutting coal and other underground materials is what you do best. But the
job can take you into challenging conditions. Coal seams can be tough on
your cutting tools, so you need tools that are equally tough.
If your current longwall drums, continuous miner drums, blocks, and core
breakers aren’t making the cut and keeping up with your expectations, see
what Kennametal offers. It’s what we do best.
Underground Mining Cutting Picks
The right cutting pick for underground mining longwall shearer and
continuous miner drums is crucial. The right cutting pick does the job faster
with more penetration and less dust, larger coal chunks and less ‘fines’, and
better wear resistance and less breakage.
Make the right choice from Kennametal’s wide range of underground
mining cutting picks, crushers, and flats and radials.

impact damage, Kennametal’s steel-based wear products can be your
