Specialized Maintenance Equipment (SME) a member of Ontario, Canada-based The NMT Group of Companies, has announced the introduction of the Titan220e battery-powered truck jacking system.
The patented Titan220e is designed to keep operators safe by using remote control to easily position the unit under the chassis of a haul truck. Using the OEM certified lifting points, it is then able to elevate and stabilise a complete axle of a large haul truck.
SME says: “The Titan220e is a fast, safe and effective tool for tyre and maintenance technicians to perform their work. The latest hydraulic and electronic technology is used to transform the Titan220e into a certified safety stand, eliminating the need for secondary supports. Tyre and truck maintenance time is reduced, increasing truck availability.”
Wayne Desormeau, Global Product and Innovation Manager, SME, said above standard safety is built into every piece of equipment designed and manufactured at the NMT Group, with the Titan220e being no different.
He continued: “The Titan220e uses hydraulic locking valves, plus four secondary mechanical locking arms, when lifting and securing the load. The mechanical locking arms give the operator visual confirmation that the load is secure.”
SME has diesel prototypes currently operating in South America (SLT220), but government and environmental mandates have forced mine sites to demand a cleaner solution, SME said.
“SME listened to their customers’ needs and are happy to introduce a successful battery-electric Titan220,” it said, adding that the machine has been designed to operate with optional power modules, diesel or electric (dry cell or lithium-ion).
