Wear Management Program
Don’t let wear wear you down
As mining industry trends towards the use of larger haul trucks and excavators with greater payloads there is a growing importance to ensure machine efficiency, as any losses can dramatically reduce production.
Wear has a major influence on the efficient running of the equipment used in an open cut mining operation and therefore needs to be reduced.
Maximise the life of your dump body
By employing simple maintenance procedures that include regular tray inspections and wear measurements, Schlam’s Wear Management Program will maximise the life of your dump body and maintain the tray weight at or below its commissioning weight to ensure maximum payload.
Our Wear Management Program includes condition monitoring and associated maintenance and repair services. We continually improve productivity through equipment efficiency optimisation.
Our assessments on current wear package/liner systems allow us to identify areas for improvements to increase operating efficiency, decrease downtime, reduce operating costs, and reduce safety risk associated with maintenance activities.
Schlam customises your wear materials to suit your requirements whilst ensuring equipment cycle times are at their optimum to deliver maximum value to your operation.
