MAXAM ANNOUNCES A NEW LARGE HAULAGE TIRE – THE MS453
Wednesday, September 23rd, 2020
MAXAM is excited to present the all-new MS453 53/80R63 open pit mining tire to their range of large mining tires. Manufactured in MAXAM’s state-of-the-art radial tire facility, the MS453 is developed through the use of cutting-edge engineering and groundbreaking compounding technology. To meet the most demanding application requirements in the open pit mining, MAXAM has engineered the MS453 to provide the industry with a rugged and long-lasting solution for mining haul trucks.
In order to meet the toughest requirements for haul trucks that require 63” large mining tires, the newly developed MS453 utilizes an enhanced casing construction with advanced compounding technology. The MS453 is the result of advanced engineering, extensive research and global testing. MAXAM designed the MS453 with the goal to provide the best delivered value, greatest productivity and the lowest cost-per-ton value for global mining operations.
Featuring a rugged and aggressive tread design that allows maximum tire life for the most demanding mining applications, the MS453 is built to withstand even most severe challenges on haul roads. Taking feedback from customers and mine sites globally, MAXAM has reinforced the sidewall of the MS453 by enhancing the tread belts and bead construction to provide maximum protection and performance. Similar to the products within the large mining series, the MS453 features a deep tread depth to deliver longer tire life. It also contains a heat resistant undertread for reduced heat built up, increasing the tire’s TKPH/TMPH. In addition, MAXAM has implemented a new naming structure on some products within the Large Mining Series to help broaden their future range of specialty tire programs. To assist customers and mine sites globally, the realignment of the model numbers will allow for easy ordering and program development as MAXAM continues to expand the haulage program. As MAXAM Tire grows, they’re ensuring a precise portfolio that provides customers with a clear understanding of their solutions.
The new product model names correlate to specific haulage tire sizes to differentiate tread design patterns within the series. The previous MS403 in size 37.00R57 and 46/90R57 have been realigned as the MS440. All other sizes within the MS403 pattern remains the same. MAXAM believes that this realignment will improve customer communication, allowing for direct access to tread design expectations.
