XCMG has produced its first 700-ton hydraulic excavator, the XE7000E, aimed at mining applications. Powered by two 1,700-horsepower motors, the XE7000E can achieve a maximum thrusting force of 243 tons and a digging force of up to 230 tons. Its bucket can dig up 50 tons of coal with each scoop and load and transport 30,000 tons of coal in eight hours.

The development and production of the XE7000E makes China the fourth country in the world to have the capability of producing 700-ton excavators after Germany, Japan and the US. XCMG has invested $285.62 million to build a 94-acre mining machinery industrial base that includes a large boring milling machining center, intelligent welding robots, and has focused R&D efforts on destressing equipment, laser tracking and measuring instruments for large structural parts.

Wang Min, chairman and president, XCMG, said: Everyone at XCMG spared no effort making excavating and mining machinery the primary business sector for the company. The XE7000E cements XCMG's status as a global leader in cutting-edge heavy machinery manufacturing, and it supports and promotes China's 'Made in China 2025' strategy."
