westech optima

The Westech Optima, a new high-performance off-highway dump truck body design, was officially launched this month by leading mining product engineer and manufacturer Austin Engineering.

The first Westech Optima body to be manufactured was on display at the official launch at Austin Engineering’s Perth facility, which was well-attended by representatives from the mining industry.

Austin Engineering Perth operations manager Mark Richards said: "It was great to see such a high level of interest at the recent launch as we feel that many mine sites can benefit from the Optima’s ability to enhance haul truck performance.

"The Westech Optima body is optimised to provide greater productivity by maximising payload.

"Because we design each body to suit mine specific operating conditions, the Optima is a low-maintenance body."

Analysed with the latest FEA and load simulation software, the Westech Optima body is compatible with all types of OEM chassis and is available through Austin Engineering Australia-wide.
