MAXAM Mining Group releases new MS412 27.00R49 tyre

MAXAM Mining Group says it continues to innovate, adding the all-new MS412 27.00R49 tyre to its open-pit mining, quarry and OTR program.

Designed to meet the demanding conditions at mine sites globally, the MS412 is the result of cutting-edge engineering and groundbreaking compounding technology, the company claims.

The tyre features a high net-to-gross tread pattern for low wear rates that increase tyre life, while MAXAM’s engineers have strategically placed stone ejectors on the tyres to provide maximum protection from drilling – which can lead to the cause of premature tyre removal and out of service conditions.

Engineered with tread grooves that allow for “exceptional traction and heat dissipation”, the MS412 delivers excellent traction in a variety of haul road conditions, MAXAM says.

To enable high speed operation with minimum heat build-up, MAXAM says it has optimised the MS412’s base compound, thereby maximising productivity for mining operations across the globe.

“Featuring a strong all-steel casing to reduce cuts and punctures, the all-new MS412 is engineered with increased casing durability to dominate severe hauling conditions,” it said.

“As an innovative group, with years of expertise in the mining industry, MAXAM’s engineering team has designed the MS412 with a high lug-to-void ratio for improved wear and impact protection, providing mine sites increased protection and wear on haulage tyres. Similar to all large mining haulage tyres in MAXAM’s program, the MS412 has deep tread grooves to provide cooler running tread and longer tyre life.”

Delivering a premium E4 haulage tyre to the industry, the MAXAM MS412 provides exceptional performance, minimum cost-per-hour and a high net-to-gross pattern for maximum tread wear, the company says.

The MS412 is available in one size, but multiple tread compounds, including the ultra-cut resistant compound that was recently released by MAXAM.

MAXAM Tire launches new group focused on open-pit mining

MAXAM Tire says it has created a dedicated global team focused on the open-pit mining market called MAXAM MINING GROUP (MMG).

The MMG team is made up of multiple members across continents responsible for serving regional market demands. Each member of the team is an industry leading expert dedicated to providing the best customer experience along with superior business solutions, the company said.

“As mining applications and machinery continue to evolve, our R&D group focuses on the utilisation of leading technology to improve safety, product performance and repeatable quality,” MAXAM Tire said. “By leveraging extensive research and testing in multiple mine locations around the world, our engineering team develops site-specific tyre compounding along with the next generation casing designs to exceed site requirements for overall performance improvement.”

To meet MAXAM’s engineering team’s advanced innovations, MAXAM has invested heavily in a state-of-the-art manufacturing and quality process, with all mining products produced with multi-staged, custom designed building equipment, it said. “This new technology allows for consistent construction and minimal disruption of the casing during the curing process,” MAXAM Tire said.

“Utilising advanced shearography technology, all MAXAM mining products are screened for internal defects as part of the standard inspection. In addition, extensive ultrasonic gauge testing is completed before product is approved for distribution. “

Matt Johnson has been appointed as Vice President of the MMG. He said: “We pride ourselves in delivering solutions with the lowest cost per hour/tonne, and provide long-term, mutually beneficial business relationships with our customers and our partnerships that only begins at the placement of MAXAM products.”
