| CORPORATE MEMBER PROFILE Shotcrete Technologies, Inc. Shotcrete Technologies, Inc. (STI), is a Colorado company with a global reach that supplies mining, tunneling, and infrastructure projects with quality shotcrete products and services that includes: • STI Shotcrete Equipment, including our industrystandard Shot-Tech Robotic Arm which can be mounted on many types of carriers. • STI Shaftlining, a robotic system for lining/repairing shafts and tunnels. This new process is quick, nondisruptive, efficient, and at a lower cost than conventional techniques. • STI Shotcrete Accelerators and admixtures, including our well-known Shotset 250 accelerator and ST Alkali Free. • Technical Support and Training: The STI team of professionals understand, support, and add value to every aspect of your shotcrete application. • Auxiliary Equipment: pumps, hoses, and everything you need for a complete system. Our service starts long before the spraying begins. With over 35 years of global experience, expect our professionals to be involved from start to finish on your shotcrete project. Whether it’s small-volume infrastructure repair or 10,000 yd3 (8000 m3) on a mega-project, STI prides itself on individual solutions for every job. In addition to our core team, we have a network of top professionals: engineers, specifiers, project managers, and nozzlemen that work with us to ensure the most efficient and cost-effective result for our customers. SHOT-TECH ROBOTIC ARMS The Shot-Tech Robotic Arm sets the standard for robotic shotcrete in most every application from 5 to 40 yd3/h (4 to 31 m3/h) in tunneling, mining, and other applications both under and above ground. It is also the choice for dry-mix applications, depending on the shotcrete pump/delivery system. Our versatile workhorse is designed for mounting on a variety of carriers, including flatbed rail cars, tractors, trucks, and loaders. It has become an industry standard for reliability and productivity and provides many thousands of yd3 (m3) of dependable shotcreteing for a reasonable investment. Standard reach: 29 ft (8 m) vertically and 23 in. (5.5 m) horizontally. Boom and nozzle rotation both a full 360 degrees. Radio- or remote-controlled with proportional functions. Nozzle tilt: 100 degrees. SHAFTLINING The system constructs a new permanent in-place lining using a cementitious mixture that will develop a compressive strength of 6000 psi (41 MPa) or greater in 7 days. The Recent Project Highlights • I-70 Twin Tunnels, Colorado • San Francisco Hydro, Ecuador • Hollywood Station, LA Metro • Lake Mead Outlet, Nevada • East Side Water Intake, New York • Kinross Gold • Barrick Gold • Storm-Water Repairs, Mumbai • Caracas Metro, Venezuela • E330 Bellevue Tunnel, Washington Fig. 1: Positioning and ready to begin the video.
