Deep coal cutting is a hot research topic at present. In this paper, the cutting technology of three-drum shearer was proposed based on previous studies. Besides, the influence of confining pressure on coal cutting performance was studied by using the discrete element method, and the induction effect of central cutting on coal cutting performance was discussed. Moreover, coal cutting with different boundary conditions was simulated with the aid of PFC2D software. The results show that as the confining pressure increases, the model dominated by tensile failure does not change, but the crack gradually develops from the vertical direction to the free surface of coal. The cutting debris first increases and then decreases, so does the cutting force. Under the effect of central cutting, the crack tends to develop towards the free surface of coal more, and both the peak cutting force and the specific energy consumption increase with the increase of confining pressure. Induced by central cutting, with the increase of confining pressure, the reduction value of peak cutting force increases first and then decreases while the reduction value of cutting specific energy consumption increases.
