Requirements for cutter head motors in tunnel construction
Cutter head motors are special motors used in tunnel-boring machines. These motors drive the drill head and drill through the rock. There are different types of cutter head motors, depending on the kind of rock and the project’s requirements. The power of electric motors depends on factors such as rock type, borehole length, and borehole diameter.
They are used in various types of tunneling projects, such as road and rail tunnels, subway lines, and mining projects. Cutter head motors are an essential element in the efficient and fast completion of tunneling works.
In recent years, the technology of cutter head motors has evolved to develop more powerful, efficient, and environmentally friendly engines. New materials and improved designs are helping to ensure that today’s cutter head motors last longer, require less maintenance, and operate more effectively than ever before.
