Heavy metal getting lighter
October 30, 2018 6 min read
This heavy-duty mining truck was redesigned and upgraded using Hardox® 450 in the tipper body. The weight of the tipper body was reduced by 22%. This reduced the weight by 2.5 tons, which increased the load capacity. In addition to this, the life-time of the body is now three times longer than the original, decreasing overall steel consumption and reducing the need for lengthy overhauls.
