Solintal, the company known around the world for designing and manufacturing buckets and ladles for the mining sector, recently supplied another 28 m 3 stoping and loading tool for a Komatsu PC 5500 mining shovel owned by the Spanish earthmoving company Epsa Internacional.
The supplied bucket was made according to a custom design by Solintal, specifically adapted and reinforced for large projects involving highly abrasive materials. The bucket was made using high-quality components and cutting-edge manufacturing techniques, as well as a revolutionary design; a combination that significantly improves the performance and productivity of the machine and a longer life for the bucket.
The Solintal bucket used on the Komatsu PC 5500 is 3150 mm long, 4380 mm tall and 4690 mm wide. It weighs 33,500 kg without teeth and 35,700 kg all together. Solintal’s exclusive design stands out for including, among other things, a bimetallic 10+9 mm plate and 450 HB Hardox steel, two materials that will extend the lifetime of this tool.
Solintal, the manufacturer of mining buckets and tools and assembly kits for the construction, energy, engineering and industry sectors, thus confirmed its leading position in the world as a supplier of maximum quality and exceptional service.
This is because Solintal’s services division, a department with the most modern equipment and up-to-date techniques, which aims to meet clients’ every need, including repairs at client facilities or wherever the machine and bucket are located, is one of the factors most valued by clients, which reinforces the company’s commitment to quality and service.
