CR Stingray™ Lip in the Hunter Valley
Compared to the competitor’s lip, Stingray increased payload by 6%.
Hunter Valley, NSW
Make & Model
The customer tested a high performance 44.5m³ bucket fitted with the ESCO Nemisys N5 cast lip. Although the bucket had a similar capacity to its predecessor, a significant drop in fill factor was noticed, creating a miss match in truck pass matching, which in turn impacted production.
CR collaborated with the customer, using data from the existing
Titan 3330™ payload monitoring system, CR was able to confirm that a CR N2188 (SR7043) Stingray cast lip system in a standard 45m³ bucket would out perform the previous lip system in a high production bucket.
By using both Stingray and Titan, the customer was able to prove consistent production improvements which in turn enabled site to confidently convert their entire fleet of excavators to Stingray cast lip systems.
- 6% higher payload
- 5% less dig energy
- Standard bucket
