1 . A dragline excavator is a piece
of heavy equipment used in civil
engineering and surface mining
2 . Draglines fall into two broad
categories: those that are based on
standard, lifting cranes and the heavy
units which have to be built on-site.
Most crawler cranes with an added
winch drum on the front can act as a
dragline. These units (like other cranes)
are designed to be dismantled and
transported over the road on flatbed
trailers.
INTRODUCTION
3 . The much larger type which is built on site is commonly used in strip-
mining operations to remove overburden above coal and more recently
for tar-sand mining. The largest heavy draglines are among the largest
mobile land machines ever built. The smallest and most common of the
heavy type weigh around 8,000 tons while the largest built weighed
around 13,000 tons.
4 . A dragline bucket system consists of a large bucket which is
suspended from a boom (a large truss-like structure) with wire ropes.
The bucket is manoeuvered by means of a number of ropes and chains.
The hoist rope, powered by large diesel or electric motors, supports the
bucket and hoist-coupler assembly from the boom. The dragrope is used
to draw the bucket assembly horizontally
HISTORY
1 . The dragline was invented in 1904 by
John W. Page (as a partner of the firm
Page & Schnable Contracting) for use
digging the Chicago Canal.
2 . Page built its first crude walking
dragline in 1923. These used legs
operated by rack and pinion on a separate
frame that lifted the crane. The body was
then pulled forward by chain on a roller
track and then lowered again.
OPERATION
1 . In a typical cycle of excavation, the bucket is positioned above the
material to be excavated. The bucket is then lowered and the dragrope is
then drawn so that the bucket is dragged along the surface of the material.
The bucket is then lifted by using the hoist rope.
2 . A swing operation is then performed to move the bucket to the place
where the material is to be dumped. The dragrope is then released causing
the bucket to tilt and empty. This is called a dump operation.
3 . On crane-type draglines, the bucket can also be 'thrown' by winding up
to the jib and then releasing a clutch on the drag cable. This would then
swing the bucket like a pendulum. Once the bucket had passed the vertical,
the hoist cable would be released thus throwing the bucket
DRAGLINE IN MINING
1 . A large dragline system used in the open pit mining industry costs approximately
US$50–100 million. A typical bucket has a volume ranging from 40 to 80 cubic yards
(30 to 60 cubic metres), though extremely large buckets have ranged up to 168
cubic metres (5,900 cu ft).
2 . The length of the boom ranges from 45 to 100 metres (148 to 328 ft). In a single
cycle, it can move up to 450 tonnes of material.
3 . Their power consumption is so great that they have a direct connection to the
high-voltage grid at voltages of between 6.6 and 22 kV. A typical dragline, with a 55-
cubic-metre bucket, can use up to 6 megawatts during normal digging operations.
1 . The coal mining dragline known as Big Muskie, owned by
the Central Ohio Coal Company (a division of American Electric
Power), was the world's largest mobile earth-moving machine,
weighing nearly 13,000 tonnes and standing nearly 22 stories
tall.
2 . It operated in Muskingum County, in the U.S. state of Ohio
from 1969 to 1991, and derived power from a 13,800 volt
electrical supply. It was scrapped in 1999.
EXAMPLE
1 . Researchers at CSIRO in Australia have a long-
term research project into automating draglines.
Mining automation teams at QCAT, a CSIRO
division; have been developing the automation
technology since 1994.
2 . Automated systems include cruise control
and Digital Terrain Mapping. Working solutions
include the proof-of-concept dragline swing
cruise control on a Tarong BE1370.
TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENTS
a] AUTOMATION
1 . Since draglines are typically large, complicated
and very expensive, training new operators can be
a tricky process.
2 . In the same way that flight simulators have
developed to train pilots, mining simulator software
has been developed to assist new operators in
learning how to control the machines.
B] SIMULATION SOFTWARE
1 . UDD stands for Universal-Dig-Dump. It
represents the first fundamental change
to draglines for almost a century, since
the invention of the 'miracle hitch'.
Instead of using two ropes (the hoist rope
and the drag rope) to manipulate the
bucket, a UDD machine uses three ropes,
two hoist and one drag.
2 . This allows the dragline operator to
have much greater selectivity in when to
pick up the bucket, and in how the bucket
may be dumped.
C] UDD
1 . The primary limitations of draglines are their boom height and
boom length, which limits where the dragline can dump the waste
material.
2 . Another primary limitation is their dig depth, which is limited by
the length of rope the dragline can utilize. Inherent with their
construction, a dragline is most efficient excavating material below
the level of their base. While a dragline can dig above itself, it does
so inefficiently and is not suitable to load piled up material (as a
rope shovel or wheel loader can).
3 .Despite their limitations, and their extremely high capital cost,
draglines remain popular with many mines, due to their reliability,
and extremely low waste removal cost.
LIMITATIONS
1 . A dragline bucket system consists of a large bucket which
is suspended from a boom (a large truss-like structure) with
wire ropes.
2 . The bucket is manoeuvered by means of a number of
ropes and chains. The hoist rope, powered by large diesel or
electric motors, supports the bucket and hoist-coupler
assembly from the boom. The dragrope is used to draw the
bucket assembly horizontally.
3 . By skillful manoeuvre of the hoist and the dragropes the
bucket is controlled for various operations.

Most crawler cranes with an added winch drum on the front can act as a dragline. These units (like other cranes) are designed to be dismantled and transported over the road on flatbed trailers. INTRODUCTION
  • 4. 3 . The much larger type which is built on site is commonly used in strip- mining operations to remove overburden above coal and more recently for tar-sand mining. The largest heavy draglines are among the largest mobile land machines ever built. The smallest and most common of the heavy type weigh around 8,000 tons while the largest built weighed around 13,000 tons. 4 . A dragline bucket system consists of a large bucket which is suspended from a boom (a large truss-like structure) with wire ropes. The bucket is manoeuvered by means of a number of ropes and chains. The hoist rope, powered by large diesel or electric motors, supports the bucket and hoist-coupler assembly from the boom. The dragrope is used to draw the bucket assembly horizontally
  • 5. HISTORY 1 . The dragline was invented in 1904 by John W. Page (as a partner of the firm Page & Schnable Contracting) for use digging the Chicago Canal. 2 . Page built its first crude walking dragline in 1923. These used legs operated by rack and pinion on a separate frame that lifted the crane. The body was then pulled forward by chain on a roller track and then lowered again.
  • 6. OPERATION 1 . In a typical cycle of excavation, the bucket is positioned above the material to be excavated. The bucket is then lowered and the dragrope is then drawn so that the bucket is dragged along the surface of the material. The bucket is then lifted by using the hoist rope. 2 . A swing operation is then performed to move the bucket to the place where the material is to be dumped. The dragrope is then released causing the bucket to tilt and empty. This is called a dump operation. 3 . On crane-type draglines, the bucket can also be 'thrown' by winding up to the jib and then releasing a clutch on the drag cable. This would then swing the bucket like a pendulum. Once the bucket had passed the vertical, the hoist cable would be released thus throwing the bucket

  • 8. DRAGLINE IN MINING 1 . A large dragline system used in the open pit mining industry costs approximately US$50–100 million. A typical bucket has a volume ranging from 40 to 80 cubic yards (30 to 60 cubic metres), though extremely large buckets have ranged up to 168 cubic metres (5,900 cu ft). 2 . The length of the boom ranges from 45 to 100 metres (148 to 328 ft). In a single cycle, it can move up to 450 tonnes of material. 3 . Their power consumption is so great that they have a direct connection to the high-voltage grid at voltages of between 6.6 and 22 kV. A typical dragline, with a 55- cubic-metre bucket, can use up to 6 megawatts during normal digging operations.
  • 9. 1 . The coal mining dragline known as Big Muskie, owned by the Central Ohio Coal Company (a division of American Electric Power), was the world's largest mobile earth-moving machine, weighing nearly 13,000 tonnes and standing nearly 22 stories tall. 2 . It operated in Muskingum County, in the U.S. state of Ohio from 1969 to 1991, and derived power from a 13,800 volt electrical supply. It was scrapped in 1999. EXAMPLE
  • 10. 1 . Researchers at CSIRO in Australia have a long- term research project into automating draglines. Mining automation teams at QCAT, a CSIRO division; have been developing the automation technology since 1994. 2 . Automated systems include cruise control and Digital Terrain Mapping. Working solutions include the proof-of-concept dragline swing cruise control on a Tarong BE1370. TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENTS a] AUTOMATION
  • 11. 1 . Since draglines are typically large, complicated and very expensive, training new operators can be a tricky process. 2 . In the same way that flight simulators have developed to train pilots, mining simulator software has been developed to assist new operators in learning how to control the machines. B] SIMULATION SOFTWARE
  • 12. 1 . UDD stands for Universal-Dig-Dump. It represents the first fundamental change to draglines for almost a century, since the invention of the 'miracle hitch'. Instead of using two ropes (the hoist rope and the drag rope) to manipulate the bucket, a UDD machine uses three ropes, two hoist and one drag. 2 . This allows the dragline operator to have much greater selectivity in when to pick up the bucket, and in how the bucket may be dumped. C] UDD
  • 13. 1 . The primary limitations of draglines are their boom height and boom length, which limits where the dragline can dump the waste material. 2 . Another primary limitation is their dig depth, which is limited by the length of rope the dragline can utilize. Inherent with their construction, a dragline is most efficient excavating material below the level of their base. While a dragline can dig above itself, it does so inefficiently and is not suitable to load piled up material (as a rope shovel or wheel loader can). 3 .Despite their limitations, and their extremely high capital cost, draglines remain popular with many mines, due to their reliability, and extremely low waste removal cost.
