Rebuilding is a crucial aspect of providing our customers with the most value possible. Since machine frames can last for multiple lifecycles, we’ve heavily invested in our full rebuild capabilities rather than constantly turning fleets over. This means we can take any asset that’s seen hours and hours of the harshest environments to new machine-quality entirely in-house.
Our customers run heavy equipment in harsh environments. Consistent exposure to these kinds of extreme conditions can quickly wear down a stock machine. The team has experience with an extensive amount of equipment applications. This means we’re able to apply our background to help creatively design a solution that will enable the asset to stand up to these harsh environments, minimizing downtime and increasing the life of the equipment.
An SMA package can be inclusive of many of the different modifications we perform. Click through to check out some examples.
Protective fire sleeve wrapping and braided stainless-steel coverings on hydraulic hoses, grease lines, and electrical wiring is used for protection from radiant heat. This prevents premature wear, failure and ignition source for compartment and localized fires.
Protective blast-resistant cab windows combine heat-reflective and high-impact qualities to form a protective, blast-resistant glass. This glass increases safety on the front and side windows of machines, helping to safeguard operators digging and loading in slag pits and various furnace areas of steel mills and foundries.
Transmission override allows a machine that’s become disabled in a pit or underneath the furnace to be towed to safety by disengaging the gears in the transmission and shifting to the neutral position.
Fire suppression system is a fast-acting, liquid-based system that detects, extinguishes and prevents reflash. When handling molten slag, the possibilities of fire hazards are extensive. This system is in place to help save the operator’s life in the most dire situations.
Tire chains are used to safeguard tires subject to heavy abrasion and damage when handling molten slag. Specifically-developed and specially-hardened forged wear links ensure optimal tire protection, even during use on these hot and burning surfaces.
High-efficiency, application-specific buckets are built with special materials and reinforced in specific areas that allow the asset to dig and haul molten slag effectively. This extends the life of the buckets and protects the machine as a whole.
Pedestrian detection systems help combat ever-increasing blind spots on machines and blind corners where an operator is unable to see around. When properly installed, based on potential hazards, these systems can provide the operator the split-second notification needed to prevent an incident.
