ROSCHEN TBM Cutters Reduce Your Costs

When you are boring a long and large diameter tunnel or a series of short and small diameter tunnels, how to choose cutters may be one of the most critical investment decisions.

The costs associated with TCI TBM disc cutters are quite extensive:

1. Cutter assembly cost and rebuild time

2. Mounting system hardware costs

3. Ring consumption

4. Bearing consumption

5. Lost boring time for cutter changes

6. TBM advance rate

7. Inventory costs

For larger tunnels, the investment is critical because so many other factors affecting the bottom line are dependent on the quality of cutters used and the assistance of the supplier.

The ROSCHEN TBM cutter design allows for faster assembly due to the reduced number of components compared to most other manufacturers’ cutters. If you elect to have an onsite rebuild program, then you will benefit from reduced cutter rebuild time. Also, your crew will be trained by our technicians to know the most efficient way to rebuild the cutters.


Advance rate

The correct TMB cutter ring with the ideal tip width makes a vast difference in advance rates. ROSCHEN has the expertise to select the correct ring and tip that will be the most efficient at excavating the rock on your next project. ROSCHEN produces a variety of different grades and profiles of rings.
