New White Paper Examines the Purpose, Uses and Applications of Mining Haul Truck Scales

Mining operations are being pressed to improve efficiencies, lower costs, maintain a high level of safety, and optimize equipment life. After strong gains over the last year or so, commodity pricing has dipped in recent months. Enjoying the benefits of strong pricing and ramping production, mining operations are now challenged with maximizing profits. Maximizing profits can be realized from various initiatives. Typically this will be achieved through efficiency improvements and cost savings measures, while always assuring and maintaining the highest level of operational safety.

Prior to the downturn in the global economy in 2009, market demand resulted in the release of various models of ‘ultra-class’ mining haul trucks. Ultra class haul trucks are considered those that have a payload capacity of 300 US short tons or greater. By leveraging ultra-class trucks, mining operations are able to move more material per haul, improving efficiencies in haulage and loading.
