Designed and manufactured using leading edge technologies in material specifications and manufacturing processes, Titan Europe’s range of mining wheels and rims are produced to suit virtually every application, make and model of the “off-highway” industry. In response to the very demanding requirements of the mining industry, Titan has developed a range of specifically designed wheels and rims, including the revolutionary Vertical Mount System for standard and ultra-class dump truck fleets utilizing both bias ply and radial tyres:
Outside Vertical Mount (OVM®)
The OVM is also the first wheel in the large earthmover class to feature HSLA (High Strength Low Alloy) steel, heavy duty, fully machined bead-seat band and side rings and full machining on all surfaces of the wheel base to achieve maximum life, performance, air retention, and ergonomic efficiencies.
Since the introduction of the OVM® wheels, mine sites have measured and recorded 50 to 60 percent savings in downtime and maintenance costs and commensurate increased safety margins.
The combination of materials and manufacturing process for the OVM® and SVM has dramatically increased the mining industry’s longevity benchmark for heavy-duty truck rims.
