Concrete transport, transmixers and agitators
Normet transmixers and agitators come with different-sized horizontal or inclined bowls and powerful engines for fast driving speeds. The concrete transport capacity of the transmixers varies from 3m³ to 6m³.
Normet has designed a complete range of underground explosive chargers, Charmecs, which meet the need of increasingly demanding charging processes.
Normet Charmecs are built to improve safety and productivity in underground blasting, contributing to high-quality and cost-effective bulk explosive (from ANFO to emulsion explosives) charging processes.
Lifts and installations for mining and low-profile tunnelling
Utilift scissors lifts are designed for lifting and installations in mining and low-profile tunnelling. Normet’s wide range of Himecs, with a large variety of platform configurations, are ideal for medium to heavy-duty load lifting and work coverage in practically any tunnel profile.
Underground transport vehicles
Normet provides you with a complete range of rubber-tiered underground transport vehicles to fit all your needs. Utimec is a dedicated product range for any underground transport need.
The Multimec slide-on/slide-off cassette system is the ideal solution for mines where a quick change of use is needed.
Normet’s modular Variomec concept uses a carrier and interchangeable work modules: a dump kit for rock hauling, a remixer kit for concrete transport and a boom lift kit for man lifting.
For fast and comfortable personnel transport in harsh conditions, the ideal solution is the Normet RBO.
Mobile mechanized scaling system
For scaling, Normet offers a mobile mechanized system: the Scamec 2000.
