Maxam Tire creates global group focused on open pit mining demands
The Maxam Mining Group has team of members across multiple continents
Maxam Tire has created the Maxam Mining Group (MMG), a dedicated global team specifically focused on the Open Pit Mining segment. The MMG has built a team of members across multiple continents responsible for serving regional market demands.
As mining applications and machinery continue to evolve, the R&D group focuses on the utilization of technology to improve safety, product performance and repeatable quality. By leveraging research and testing in multiple mine locations around the world, MMG's engineering team develops site specific tire compounding along with casing designs to exceed site requirements for overall performance improvement.
All mining products are produced in multi-staged, custom designed building equipment. This technology allows for consistent construction and minimal disruption of the casing during the curing process. Utilizing advanced shearography technology, all Maxam mining products are screened for internal defects as part of the standard inspection. In addition, extensive ultrasonic gauge testing is completed before product is approved for distribution.

The all-new CASE TR340B compact track loader — operating at 90 horsepower with a 3,400-pound rated operating capacity — is the most powerful radial-lift CTL in the CASE lineup. Its all-new 8-inch LCD display improves on industry-leading CASE visibility with a new backup camera that is viewable in both forward and reverse operation. The display also showcases critical operating information and "trip" details. All-new electro-hydraulic controls, managed through the display, make it easier than ever for operators to dial CASE CTLs into specific application demands. All new cab controls and joysticks make the new TR340B easy to own and operate.
Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
