No Downtime Due to Lip Maintenance
The site was able to completely remove maintenance downtime.
Make & Model
A Queensland coal miner sought to trial our DecaEdge™ cast lip system to improve machine availability and reduce maintenance costs.
CR delivered the worlds’ first 10 station cast lip solution for wheel loaders. The DecaEdge is specifically designed to reduce maintenance downtime by:
- Increasing lip strength for reliability and longevity
- Decreasing dig energy results in less stress on the machine and an overall decrease in maintenance requirements
- Increasing digging efficiency results in faster cycle times
- Presenting no vulnerable weld joints
- Reducing overall mass
The site has successfully achieved a 14 month milestone without any downtime associated to lip maintenance, resulting in:
- Increased machine availability
- Increased productivity
- Increased personnel availability
- Significantly improved overall lip system safety
