Advanced TPC Technology at Bauma

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

Bauma, possibly the world’s largest showcase for construction, mining and quarrying machinery is, once again, the venue chosen by RUD-Erlau to meet and greet customers – old and new – and present the latest advances in tyre protection and traction chain technology.
Over the past 65 years, RUD-Erlau, inventor of the TPC, has, by keeping abreast of developments in mobile materials handling, come to dominant the world tyre protection market.
During the recent heavy demand for metals, minerals and aggregates, RUD-Erlau’s TPCs have bee crucial in enabling operators to overcome a severe tyre shortage and meet 24/7 schedules by keeping loaders loading and trucks trucking.
Now, when every penny counts, RUD-Erlau’s TPCs are more than doubling the kilometres-life of costly tyres and aiding mobile plant safety in mines, quarries, steel foundries, demolition, scrap handling and glass recycling.
The cost-benefits of RUD-Erlau TPCs – up to 7 times increased tyre life, assured plant availability and significant savings per tonne – are such that more and more plant owners are fitting RUD-Erlau as standard.
Investment in R&D, advanced metallurgy and state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities enable RUD-Erlau to deliver lighter, stronger, more durable and more effective meshes within tight deadlines.
Along with the S75 Plus, retaining RUD-Erlau’s crown as the worlds largest TPC, the company has recently brought significant improvements and savings to underground mining with the TORO X19 chain series.
Designed for low-profile loaders, the TORO X19 combines all-important sidewall protection with a 30% improvement in abrasion resistance and a commensurately longer service life.
High in the Chilean Andes, RUD-Erlau’s TERRAPLUS traction chain has been adopted as the main means of keeping 400 tonne, copper-carrying Komatsu´s on-track over icy haul-roads.
Constructed of energy-saving, light-weight alloys, the TERRAPLUS’s self-cleaning, Z-shaped, wear links have specially designed studs which provide extra ‘bite’ in compacted snow, ice and soft ground.
As important as technically advanced products is the German attention to service exemplified by RUD-Erlau’s world-wide network of TPC specialists providing expertise and life-of-product aftercare wherever their equipment is in use.
From 19 to 25 April visitors to HAL C2 Booth 311/406 at Bauma will have an excellent opportunity to see many examples of RUD-Erlau TPC technology and discuss the cost-advantages with experienced RUD-Erlau TPC engineers.
