A leader in underground mine vehicle technology

Anchises Technology has become known as the Chinese leader in Underground Mining Vehicle technologies and since the company started in 1982, it has been at the forefront of eight leading industry innovations for underground trackless equipment.
The company markets its underground mine vehicles under the trade name SinoMe.
This year, Anchises has expanded its range of products and services to Africa and Australia setting up a distributorship and maintenance and support base in both South Africa and Australia.
In 1982, Anchises introduced electric underground load haul dump trucks to China. Nine years later the company developed China’s first electric underground loaders which had a bucket capacity of 4 cubic metres.
In 1997 the company developed China’s first multi-disk wet brake and has holds three patents over this technology. The following year, the company developed China’s first civil aviation medium-sized aircraft towing tractor. In the same year, Anchises developed the first underground low profile dump truck with a hauling capacity of 25 tons in China.
In 2002 the company became the first private enterprise to manufacture and supply underground trackless equipment in China.
In 2004, the company launched a series of underground trackless equipment using its own proprietary designs. Later that year, the company made its first export of a 2 cubic metre capacity underground loader to South America..
In 2005, the company became the first manufacturer to establish a research centre for underground mining vehicle technologies in China.
Anchises Technology president Maolin Feng says: “Our technology is based on vehicle technology, engine drive lines, hydraulics, brake systems, safety and tyres.
“We have a very strong design in drive lines including engines, converters, transmission and axles,” Maolin Feng says.
“We do not incorporate high technological components in our equipment, rather we simplify the working mechanisms because companies are looking for good performance, quality and above all easy maintenance. This has been ideal for the smaller mine operators.”
Anchises Technology Sino Me range of underground mine vehicles is growing at an average rate of 25% year on year. During the 2007-2008 year, sales were 60% domestic and 40% international, however during last year’s global downturn, sales were predominantly to the domestic market.
