Konstruktionsstudie av höjdreduktionssystem för dumper (Swedish)
Abstract [sv]

Detta examensarbete i maskinkonstruktion var en förstudie, som genomfördes på uppdrag av Atlas Copco Rock Drills AB i Örebro. Förstudien bygger på ett patenterat förslag till en ny design, som skulle göra det möjligt för Atlas Copcos gruvfordon att verka i låga underjordiska gruvmiljöer. Patentet byggde på en helt ny typ av konfiguration, som var avsedd att eventuellt implementeras på vissa gruvfordon. Den nya konfigurationen skulle göra det möjligt att vika och minska lastflakets storlek före dumpningsfasen. Syftet med denna studie var att använda olika tekniska metoder för att avgöra om denna nya flakidé skulle vara ett intressant alternativ för Atlas Copcos framtida generationer av gruvdumpers.

Abstract [en]

The following Master Thesis project was carried out on behalf of Atlas Copco Rock Drills AB in Örebro, and in collaboration with KTH – Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm. This project was a feasibility study based on a patented proposal for a new box design that would allow for Atlas Copco Minetruck vehicles to operate in low ceiling underground mine environments. This proposal was based in an entirely new box configuration with the potential of being introduced at Minetruck vehicles. The configuration of this box would allow it to fold and reduce its size prior to the dumping phase of the material. The aim of this study was to use various engineering methods in order to determine whether this new box idea would be an interesting Minetruck box alternative for the future vehicle product range of Atlas Copco.
