Metso keeps trucks moving

Boliden's Aitik mine in Northern Sweden has signed a three-year contract with Metso to deliver Trellex truck bed linings for a total of 15 haul trucks in their existing fleet of 30 trucks. Truck bed linings are used in the haul truck box to protect it and the entire truck structure from wear and damage while transporting rock from the mining pit. Metso's linings are specifically designed to absorb stress at every point of the truck work cycle, from loading to transport and on to dumping. The main benefit of Trellex for customers is the long wear life compared with a traditional steel lining, resulting in up to four times more or longer service life and lower maintenance costs.


Main advantages of Metso's Trellex truck bed lining:

·Lower production costs – higher profits

·Modular panel system: Easier to handle than steel

·Panels can be replaced individually rather than the entire lining, resulting in minimized downtime for maintenance

·CE-certified integrated lifting system

·Environmentally friendly and safety conscious

·Reduces noise by 10-15 decibels, cutting noise in half

·Reduces vibration
