The RockCutting working group at the Institute for Advanced Mining Technologies (AMT) conducts research in the field of the mechanical extraction of resources and investigates the main variables affecting the extraction process, which are then described in a model.

In addition, new research areas  result from current developments in power transmission (i.e. inverter-controlled cutting engines) and sensor technology (i.e. for material recognition).

Our research focuses on methods and machines to deconstruct rock masses through various cutting technologies and the optimization of these methods and machines. The objective is to maximize and optimize the stream of extracted material with respect to output and mineral concentration, while minimizing power usage and mechanical wear during the extraction process.
