Joy Global Inc. operates as a manufacturer and servicer of mining equipment for the extraction of metals and minerals. The company manufactures and markets original equipment and parts, and performs services for both underground and surface mining, as well as certain industrial applications. The company’s equipment is used in major mining regions throughout the world to mine coal, copper, iron ore, oil sands, gold, and other minerals and ores. Segments The company operates in two business segments, Underground Mining Machinery (Underground) and Surface Mining Equipment (Surface). Underground segment This segment produces underground mining machinery for the extraction of coal, potash, salt, platinum and other bedded materials. The company has sales offices and service facilities in Botswana, India, Poland and Russia. The company also maintains a network of service and distribution centers to rebuild and service equipment and to sell replacement parts and consumables in support of its installed base. This network includes five service centers in the United States and eight outside the United States, all of which are located in major underground mining regions. Products and Services Armored Face Conveyors: Armored face conveyors are used in longwall mining to transport material cut by the shearer away from the longwall face. Battery Haulers: Battery haulers transport material from continuous miners to the feeder breaker and are powered by portable rechargeable batteries. Continuous Chain Haulage Systems: Continuous chain haulage systems transport material from continuous miners to main mine belts on a continuous basis. Continuous Miners: Electric crawler mounted continuous miners cut material using carbide-tipped bits on a horizontal rotating cutterhead. Conveyor Systems: Conveyor systems are used in both underground and surface applications. The primary components of a conveyor system are the idlers, idler structure and the terminal, which itself consists of a drive, discharge, take-up and tail loading section. Feeder Breakers: Feeder breakers are used in both underground and surface applications. A feeder breaker is a form of crusher that uses a rotating drum with carbide-tipped bits to break down the size of the mined material for loading onto a conveyor system or feeding into processing facilities. Flexible Conveyor Trains (FCT): An FCT is an electric-powered, single operator, self-propelled conveyor system that provides continuous haulage of material from a continuous miner to the main mine belt. The FCT uses a rubber belt similar to a standard fixed conveyor. The FCT operates independently from the track crawler system, allowing the FCT to move and convey material simultaneously. Available in lengths of approximately 570 feet, the FCT is able to negotiate multiple 90-degree turns in an underground mine infrastructure. Hard Rock Mining Products: The company provides a range of hard rock mining products, including breakers, drifters, raised boring products, blast hole drilling products, buckets and lip systems, hydraulic jumbo drills, production drills, loaders, trucks, shaft sinking and blasthole products. In addition, the company provides service to support this equipment. High Angle Conveyors: High angle conveyors are used in both underground and surface applications. They provide a method for elevating or lowering materials continuously from one level to another at steep angles. The high angle conveyor has throughput rates ranging from 0.30 to 4,400 tons per hour. Longwall Shearers: A longwall shearer moves back and forth on an armored face conveyor parallel to the material face. Using carbide-tipped bits on cutting drums at each end, the shearer cuts 1.2 to 8.0 meters high on each pass and simultaneously loads the material onto the armored face conveyor for transport through the stageloader to the conveyor belt. Powered Roof Supports: Roof supports use hydraulic cylinders to perform a jacking-like function that supports the mine roof during longwall mining. The supports self-advance with the longwall shearer and armored face conveyors, resulting in controlled cavin
