Continental Reaffirms its Commitment to Mining Industry
The portfolio of products that is on display at MINExpo includes commercial specialty tires, truck tires, industrial hoses, power train belts, vibration control systems, advanced multi-purpose instrumentation and displays,360-degree camera systems and control units as well as a variety of services . “With these products and additional services such as Continental telematics solutions, we believe we are contributing to safe, efficient, clean, and comfortable mobility within the mining industry while offering solutions tailored to our customers' individual needs – all from a single source,” Straten added.
Two earthmoving and four underground mining tires will be presented in Las Vegas: The Continental EM-Master as well as the Continental RDT-Master demonstrate the companies’ commitment to the earthmoving sector. The all steel radial carcass of those tires ensures excellent cut and impact resistance while guaranteeing good fuel economy.
The Continental UndergroundMaster, DrillMaster, DumperMaster and ScoopMaster are specifically designed for the needs of mining, their specialized features are unique to their applications and its unique requirements.
With these six tires Continental enhances its comprehensive specialty tire portfolio and fortifies its commitment to the mining industry.
Continental is showcasing four hydraulic hoses and four industrial hoses. The hydraulic hoses are launching three new series of Constant Pressure Spiral hoses. They are XCP4S, XCP5S, XCP6S, all new hoses that expand Continental’s hydraulic product offering in the high-pressure hose range. The industrial hoses are the Mine Spray, Flextra Rock Dust, Brigade Mine and Spiraflex Rock Dust.
On the belting side, three power transmission products will be featured. They are the Hy-T Wedge, SilentSync and Conti Synchrochain Carbon. These are three different drive options for a single theoretical drive to be able to cope with dynamic power transmission at extreme stress under full load. Each drive has progressively higher power ratings, demonstrating how much more power can be driven by smaller belts due to improvements in technology and engineering.
Continental now will be offering lightweight prototypes - products made from glass-fiber-reinforced polyamide – for construction vehicles and machinery for the first time. This will offer a potential weight reduction of up to 60 percent, even with large components and at the same time will lower consumption. Additionally vibration isolation and noise reduction products damp vibrations and structure-borne noise, isolate machinery oscillation, and noticeably increase ride comfort.
