Consistently produce 1 million tonnes per month

One million tonnes-per-month production is no longer reserved for high-powered shearers in tall seams. Recently, five mines averaged 1.2 million tonnes/month production in two meters using Joy 7LS1D and 7LS2A machines.

Our advanced shearer automation enables unmatched reliability cutting large, 10-million-tonne panels in challenging conditions, while increasing productivity and reliability. Automation is also key to increasing safety by reducing operator exposure to dust and noise.

Joy shearers combine the expertise of a full-system supplier with the flexibility to adapt to mine-specific requirements.
