Case details

Industry Raw material handling

This mining truck has been equipped with a body made of Hardox® 450. The weight of the new dump body is reduced by 2.5 tons or 25%, which can increase the maximum payload, while maintaining the same maximum vehicle weight. Additionally, the new body can have a longer lifetime than the conventional one.
