Extended product lifespan
“We estimate that the lifespan can be increased by 25 to 30%,” Torre says. “There’s also an environmental benefit because the tipper body is very light and therefore contributes to lower fuel consumption.”
For M. Torre, partnering with SSAB has many benefits, extended far beyond the superior quality of its steel.
As SSAB’s Regional Sales Manager Pedro Berregui explains: “Using our expertise, we’ve been able to maximize the benefits of Hardox wear plate, using harder steel to increase durability, and a lighter material to increase the payload of each transport and save fuel.”
In 2020, it was Berregui who first presented Hardox® 500 Tuf as a suitable solution for M. Torre’s products.
“The best thing about working with SSAB is not only about the steel,” Torre says.
“There’s the technical support, new applications, new products and helping our customers see the benefits of having Hardox 500 Tuf in their tipper bodies.”
