MAXAM Tire extends Large Mining series product line

MAXAM Tire has made three new additions to its Large Mining series of tyres.

The company says it has engineered its haulage tyres (MS401, MS402, MS403) to provide the industry with the “best solution for mining applications”.

It continued: “The Large Mining product line is the result of extensive research and testing in multiple mine locations across several continents.”

In order to meet the toughest application requirements, the new haulage tyres use recently developed compounding and carcass construction, according to the company. “These enhancements allow MAXAM’s Large Mining products to provide the best delivered value, greatest productivity and lowest cost per tonne value of operation,” it said.

Available for haul trucks up to 290 t (320 tons) MAXAM offers three specific tread patterns available in multiple compounds based on site TKPH/TMPH to meet different surface mine application requirements.

The MS401 (pictured) features an aggressive tread design with heat-resistant under tread, ideal for applications that require maximum traction and high site TKPH/TMPH, MAXAM said.

The MS402 has enhanced shoulder lugs and a solid centerline providing increased protection, traction and tread life in haulage applications.

The MS403, meanwhile, integrates an advanced tread design for flexibility in all applications, from smooth haul roads to rough and rocky terrain. “Designed to deliver lowest cost per hour/tonne, the MS403 is the proven solution for the mining industry,” the company said.
