    Mining Consumable Track Pins Created by Fortis Mining Engineering Manufacturing

    The mining consumable, Track Pins, were developed by Fortis Mining Engineering and Manufacturing to help assist undercutters at various mine sites.

    Undercutters are used to cut the floor or wall in the mine to create a pathway so the ground is able to move. The Track Pin was created for the Under Cutter to ensure that it continuously operates effectively.

    The Track Pin helps reduce the maintenance on mining Undercutters. Fortis Mining Engineering and Manufacturing's Track Pin is made with an alternative type of steel to safeguard it from breaking.
