Pain – MTG today has announced the launching of a new complete bucket protection system for loaders in underground mines, the LHD Lip System, that has been tested with excellent results Canadian and Portuguese mines. This welded system comes with an ultra-slim design that optimizes bucket penetration and reliability, increasing machine productivity and operational time. Thanks to that, this shroud is capable of reducing fuel and pneumatic consumption, compared with mechanical protectors, providing a great competitive advantage for the user.
Designed and manufactured in Europe, LHD Lip System is produced with the new steel alloy, MET40LH, developed to the strictest quality controls (including AOD process control) to maximize the hardness and protection of the bucket without losing the weldability of steel.
Other advantages this system offers are the shroud self-sharpening design, which increases its wear life, as well as installation versatility in any bucket width.
Currently, MTG has its welded LHD Lip System for loader buckets with a thickness of 38mm 1.5″. A version of the LHD shrouds with more wear material at the lower part is foreseen for more abrasive applications during the coming year, as well as a hammerless system during 2017.
