Julio and Julio Group has chosen Metso's Haul Truck Solution to reduce the operating costs and improve the performance of its truck fleet in the São Domingos quarry in Sorocaba/Brazil. This investment is estimated to reduce operating costs by 30 % over the long term. The São Domingos quarry has a capacity of about 1 200 000 tons of crushed stone per year and is located in a 1 500 000 m² area in Sorocaba, São Paulo state/Brazil. "The high-performance rubber truck lining solution will give the quarry greater maintenance flexibility, reduce fleet downtime and increase productivity," says Ricardo Bonadia, Industrial Manager of the Julio and Julio Group.
 
The lining installed on trucks maximizes fleet availability and productivity, reduces noise during loading and unloading, improves driver comfort and maintains truck suspension. The perceived noise is reduced by 50 % or more and the shocks and vibrations by 95 %. Another advantage of Metso's rubber truck lining is its modular composition. When replacement is required, only the worn modules have to be changed. Bonadia also highlights the wear life of the truck linings. Metso's rubber linings typically last four times longer than steel linings.
