Caterpillar Tunneling customises a complete line of tunnelling equipment and services to specific project requirements, throughout the world. Cat machines are highly versatile and built to the most rigorous safety and quality standards. Caterpillar Tunneling is the only tunnelling equipment manufacturer to fully design, manufacture, assemble and test the entire TBM under one roof.
All Cat TBM components are designed for ease of maintenance and repair. Caterpillar Tunneling continues to develop tunnelling technology, with advances that include the use of Variable Frequency Drives in soft-ground TBMs.
All Cat TBMs undergo 3-Dimentional Finite analyses to calculate displacement, stresses and safety factors for the Cutting Head and Shield structures.
