After completing a number of successful contracts for Joy Global, Carver Engineering was extremely pleased to secure the Datong Project. Datong located approximately 350km west of Beijing required the contract to be split into 2 phases.

The first phase included - Crusher, Tail Piece Frame, NDRE Frame, Articulated Pan Frame, Cross Frame, Carriage Frame and Ramp Pan, along with various smaller components that would eventually link up in the conveyer assembly.

The second phase of production included – Head Frame, Carriage Frame, Cross Frame, Tail Piece Frame, Articulated Pan Frame, Adaptor Pan and another NDRE Frame. Again this contract came with smaller components for link up in the final conveyor assembly.

The steel conveyor was fabricated throughout December 2013 and January 2014. In February 2014 each component was painted and assembled to the customer's specification before being shipped to Beijing.

In the Spring of 2015 more items were added to the contract which included a Hood Frame, several Spillplates, a Matilda assembly, a NDRE frame and a variety of Deflector plates. These have now been fully fabricated and equipped with link up devices ready to be delivered to Joy Global's main office in Worcester for assembly.
