RH340B Face Shovel
An iron ore mine in Chile approached CR and its dealer to provide a product that would reduce machine downtime and maintenance costs. They experienced frequent maintenance events for their cast lip, some of which prolonged the planned maintenance cycle, like lengthy weld repairs or pin bodies stuck inside cast noses.
Following a review of site conditions, CR supplied a Stingray™ cast lip. The following lip features attributed to less frequent downtime for bucket maintenance:
- Lip strength
- Single dig plane alignment of the teeth and shrouds allow for lower required digging forces.
GET change out time is now more predicable and there have been no cast lip weld maintenance events. The overall cost of ownership for the cast lip and GET have been noticeably reduced. Reducing unplanned downtime led to an increase in the machine’s long term production potential.
