Superplast® steels conquering the oceans
After the roads, Industeel Superplast® steels extend their use to the oceans. READ MORE
Industeel has recently exhibited at the biggest international mining fair Minexpo (Las Vegas) to promote a new concept of track shoes specifically adapted to the heaviest electric rope shovels (total weight above 1000T).
The base of the concept is to supply track links 100% machined from big forged blocks, when the machines are equipped with casted track links.
Castings are normally affected by many internal defects which are the root cause for many unexpected failures in service, especially on machine working in harsh environments (stony grounds, low temperatures). The perfect soundness and high toughness of forgings allow to avoid failures in service providing lower operating costs for the machines (less downtimes).
