Your added value with tooth design by thyssenkrupp:

With the digging tool optimization from thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions you can operate your bucket wheel excavators more productive. Our solution reduces teeth breakage because of our new design and a higher breaking strength.

This results in a longer life time, shorter down times, less power consumption and higher productivity of your BWE.

Your benefits at a glance:

  • Reduction of teeth breakage

  • Clear and sustainable increase of BWE production

  • Reduction of operating costs

  • Drop down the BW cutting loads, wear intensity and maintenance interruption time

  • Wear reduction of belt conveyors by explicit reduction of big lumps in the conveyed material

  • Environmental friendly by reduction of green gas emissions

Our Services

Point Load Test (PLT)

The PLT is an in-situ test method which permits a quick analysis of an undisturbed material element in an open-pit mine. It allows calculating the specific properties of rocks and it is intended as an index test for the strength classification of rock materials.

Express Drill Abrasiveness Test (EDAT)

Express Drill Abrasiveness Test (EDAT)

The EDAT is a simple test method to determine an indication of the material’s abrasiveness in the bench faces to determine approximately the abrasive wear on bucket wheel teeth during the cutting excavation and the downtime of the BWE due to the change of the teeth.

Digitalized Expertise with Bucket Wheel Tooth Wear Monitoring

The thyssenkrupp tooth wear monitoring system uses a camera or a radar based system to continuously monitor the wear of each individual bucket wheel tooth. Wear information get stored in a local database and can be accessed via a web based user interface. The wear data can optionally be connected to the thyssenkrupp maintenance assistance system (MAS).

The 24/7 tracking allows a quick reaction to tooth failures and a prediction of when teeth need to be replaced. The result is better maintenance and a higher overall machine availability.

The added value our tooth wear monitoring system has for you:

  • Improved maintenance planning

  • Increased machine availability

  • Machine performance insights

  • Predictive Maintenance

  • Immediate detection of a missing tooth
