Adding 3-star and 4-star MAXAM solutions for underground mining applications
Feb 14th, 2023, DANVERS, MA – MAXAM Tire, a pioneer in off-the-road tire manufacturing, expands and upgrades the underground mining series, broadening their range of performance programs. To meet the challenges underground mining faces, MAXAM has significantly improved their solutions for articulated dump trucks and load haul dump loaders. This underground mining lineup not only delivers advantages required for aggressive applications but also provides various heat-severity requirements for customers globally.
With every underground site’s unique challenge and need for durability, MAXAM has designed solutions capable of achieving maximum stability and traction. The 4-star rated E4/L4 MS405 and MS406 for articulated dump trucks boast 60% higher load capacity. Designed with end users in mind, the MS405 is one of MAXAM’s flagship OTR solutions that delivers premium performance in the toughest jobs. Featuring a high traction pattern with increased wearable tread and heavy-duty casing, the MS405 has undergone the most extensive research and testing to exceed expectations. Similarly, the MS406 encompasses a deep lug pattern that yields superior traction and resistance to wear and cutting, maximizing performance with the lowest cost-per-hour for underground mining applications.
To deliver superior puncture and cut resistance that load haul dump loaders require in underground mining, the improved L5/L5S MS501 and MS502 yield 15% higher load capacity. Combining reinforced bead, shoulder, and sidewall, both the MS501 and MS502 tackle severe underground mining jobs with ease. In addition, both products incorporate specialized mining compound for extra cut and impact resistance.
“With the underground mining market facing increasing demands, the expansion of our 4-star E4/L4 and 3-star L5/L5S lineups mark MAXAM’s pledge to design only the most capable solutions for the industry. While every underground site has unique needs, we’re confident that the increased load capacity our series now have will perform beyond expectation. In addition to our comprehensive series for open pit mining and haul trucks, from size 49 to 63 inches, the enhanced lineups for underground mining symbolize MAXAM’s commitment to play an integral part in the mining industry’s operation and future,” says Matt Johnson, Vice President of MAXAM Mining Group.
