China’s XCMG recently successfully delivered a 200 ton class XE2000 mining excavator to global mining company Vale’s Serra Leste iron ore operations in Brazil, marking the latest strategic cooperation between the two parties. XCMG is already developing a zero emissions grader for XCMG, while 72 t XDR80TE battery electric wide body trucks are already in use at XCMG mines in Brazil and Indonesia. An MOU signed between XCMG and Vale in 2021 also envisaged the delivery of a battery electric 240 ton truck from XCMG.
As the latest generation mining machinery product of XCMG, the OEM says the XE2000 mining excavator has advanced technology and excellent performance and is designed to meet the needs of efficient, safe and sustainable development of modern mining production. Jieshan Zhang, XCMG Overseas Mining Equipment Product Strategy Director: “The delivery of this excavator will further enhance Vale’s competitiveness in the mining field and provide strong support for its pursuit of higher quality and higher output mining production.”
The XE2000 mining excavator XCMG says is known for its excellent digging capabilities and high stability. Its powerful power system and advanced oil control technology enable it to perform well in complex mining environments. At the same time, the equipment’s intelligent design and automated control system “improve the efficiency and safety of operators and reduce the risk of human errors and accidents.”
Double boarding passages on the XE2000 ensure convenient and quick operation and maintnenance, while a 200L grease cylinder and centralised lubrication system guarantee ten days use after one refill. An exhaust gas injection device can automatically discharge dust out of the air filter and reduce daily maintenance time. The 6 m high cab provides the operator good visibility and a comfortable working environment for greater working efficiency. The bucket and bucket rod have stronger digging forces, more adaptable to complicated mining conditions. The electrically controlled positive flow system well matches XCMG’s independently developed control system ensuring smooth digging and loading movements.
In the process of delivering the XE2000 mining excavator, XCMG says it carefully organised a professional team to provide customised solutions for Vale, and through training and after-sales service, ensure that Vale can fully realise the potential of the equipment. Zhang adds: “The successful holding of this delivery ceremony marks the strong cooperation between XCMG Mining Company and Vale in the mining field, injecting new impetus into the joint development of both parties.”
