Boosting mine productivity with innovative excavator bucket design

Ian Cornfoot, Managing Director of G&G Mining, is getting ready to educate Truck & Shovel conference delegates about how innovative excavator bucket designs can increase productivity for miners.

The 100%-owned subsidiary company of SSAB has been using advanced high strength steel in the design and production of stronger, lighter and more productive excavator buckets for many years.

The company has long worked with designs to offer increased productivity to miners – with reduced weight and increased volume offering, and an increase in payload, while remaining within the machine suspended load limits.

Cornfoot’s presentation at the event – taking place at the InterContinental Singapore, September 19-20 – will address challenges and offer innovative solutions to four interrelated objectives – weight reduction, volume increase, structural life and resistance to wear – through the development and production of G&G’s XMOR High Productivity Mining Buckets. These high strength buckets use a range of advanced HARDOX steels, including HARDOX 500Tuf, which delivers exceptional wear life at a much lower weight than conventional buckets, the company says.
