The Challenge

The Nevada Silver mine approached CR and its dealer to provide a product that would reduce machine downtime and maintenance costs, all while expressly aiming for an increase in hourly production

The Solution

Following a review of site conditions CR supplied a RazerEdge cast lip. The cast lip removes the requirement for a weld on adapter, as such removing the primary cause of GET downtime. The cast lip further delivers productivity benefits through plane alignment and weight reduction.

The Impact

The customer recorded an immediate increase in productivity of 9% coupled with a complete removal of lip based maintenance downtime.

The customer is now delivering production rates that better align with their mine site targets.
