CME hopes to play a significant role in the future development of Australia’s longwall coal mining equipment. Backed by the Chinese Government, CME has found its stride in the last two years, now competing in price, availability and most importantly – quality.

Recently investing millions of dollars in manufacturing plants, CME has started efforts to expand its product base past Chinese, Russian, Polish and Indian mines. The CME exhibit will change the world’s perception of Chinese manufactured equipment.

CME is totally driven to achieve the goal of being number one in product quality, service and backup support in the longwall equipment industry.

Its range includes full turnkey longwall systems with the major product groups being:

Armoured face conveyors

Shearers and ploughs

Powered roof supports

Beam stage loaders


Parsons mining chains

Hydraulic props

Safety equipment

All built to specification
