Joy Global designs and manufactures the major elements of modern, high production longwall systems and provides the integrated approach necessary for the productivity gains required for success in underground mining. The major elements of a Joy longwall system are a shearing machine, an armored face conveyor (AFC), roof supports, stageloader, crusher and mobile belt tailpiece. Joy Global manufactures these individual elements and provides professional project management capability to incorporate them into an integrated system and deliver that system on time, to specification and on budget.
