Title (EN) AUTONOMOUS ROOF BOLTER AND RELATED METHODS
(FR) DISPOSITIF AUTONOME DE POSE DE BOULONS DANS LE TOIT ET PROCÉDÉS ASSOCIÉS
Abstract:
(EN) An autonomous roof bolter includes a material handling system having a storage pod with a plurality of spaced, fixed holders, each receiving at least one of a plurality of roof bolts. A guidance system may automatically guide the roof bolter to a location for installing a roof bolt, such as by using a manipulator for retrieving the roof bolt from the storage pod and delivering it to a drill mast. The guidance provided by the guidance system may be distance or direction. Related methods are disclosed.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif autonome de pose de boulons dans le toit, comprenant un système de manutention comportant un module de stockage doté d'une pluralité d'éléments de support fixes espacés, chaque élément de support recevant au moins un boulon de toit parmi une pluralité de boulons de toit. Un système de guidage peut guider automatiquement le boulon de toit vers un emplacement pour installer un boulon de toit, par exemple au moyen d'un manipulateur pour récupérer le boulon de toit du module de stockage et le distribuer à un mât de forage. Le guidage assuré par le système de guidage peut être la distance ou la direction. L'invention se rapporte également à des procédés associés.
