It’s Time to Rethink Mine Design

New technology for faster, more profitable operations


Now, there’s a whole new way to think about material hauling. With Rail-Veyor®. The first and only system that’s simpler, greener, and far more efficient than any other solution out there. Rail-Veyor offers a full range of services including research and development, material hauling testing at dedicated demonstration facilities, engineering and design of fully-commissioned installations and after-sale support.


The idea began as far back as the late 1960s and has been consistently developed. By the mid 1980’s and 1990’s the concept improved to where it could have major industry impact and is where our current story picks up below.
