Excavator mounted device for moving conveyor lines:

The moving unit BaSYS is designed as an add-on unit for a hydraulic excavator and uses the original bolt supports of the excavator. Conveyor lines - e.g. in opencast mining - frequently have to be relocated (moved). Normally, only special moving caterpillar tracks (pipe-layers) are available for this task. Caterpillar tracks pull the conveyor line in churned up terrain so that the conveyor belt is subject to immense stress and the subsequent alignment of the conveyor line is very complex. BaSYS can be used to move conveyor belt lines gently and rapidly by lifting them into a prepared foundation course using an existing excavator.

Equipment costs, investments and human resources are reduced to a minimum with BaSYS.


BaSYS can be used to move any conveyor belt lines as long as a rail section connected to the conveyor line is located each on the right and left of the conveyor line. The moving unit is formed like a U and is turned upside down with the open side over the conveyor line, the two closure heads resting at the swivel ends being locked around the rail sections. The upwards movement of the excavator jib now causes the conveyor line to lift off the ground and more or less relocates it by the excavator arm swiveling out or changing the direction of travel by the excavator. If the conveyor section is lifted, the excavator travels along the conveyor line and thus moves this continuously over the entire length. This process is repeated until the conveyor line has reached the required position.

A required lateral inclination compensation of the conveyor line is performed by activating the dipper cylinder of the excavator. The size of the lateral inclination is continually monitored via a light emitting diode display and corrected, if necessary. The lateral inclination is needed, in particular, if the conveyor line has been moved to its target position and has to be aligned. The alignment effort is minimal if the destination area has already been established as a foundation course.

It is optionally possible to guide the excavator or moving unit via the guide beam of a disk laser.
