Do you want to reduce operating costs, decrease downtime and increase prodictivity? If yes no need to look any further. RUD Chains can help make this a reality with their innovative tyre protection chains and latest technological advances.
Profitable productivity is vital for companies in all sectors operating in such turbulent economic climates, ensuring a high level of competitive advantage is achieved through the quality and price of products. This concept most certainly applies to heavy industries such as quarrying, materials handling and recycling to name a few.
Where loading and hauling is a central component of an operation, optimizing plant availability is the key to success, and this success depends on skilled staff and a rigorous maintenance schedule with particular attention being paid to the tyres. A good plant manager will make certain that both staff and machines are well protected, for without a full set of sound tyres, just as without a skilled operator, a loader or truck is simply an expensive, idle lump of metal.
RUD a leading manufacturer of tyre protection chains have worked alongside many heavy operators across numerous industries such as quarrying, mining, recycling and many more. They retain a dedicated approach to providing a com-plete solution to the companies they work with. Their main objectives are to firstly reduce operating costs, decrease downtime and most importantly increase overall productivity.
A comprehensive installation and maintenance programme is an essential factor in delivering long term benefits from a tyre protection investment. RUD offer a high level of technical advice, support and service for tyre protection projects from start to finish and throughout.
Predominantly RUD provide a product specialist to determine a chain design that meets your specific needs and re-quirements of your working environment. The correct selection of tyre protection chains is determined by many pa-rameters which are mostly site and application specific. These factors would include issues like machine travel speeds, distances, and abrasiveness of the surfaces.
RUD's tyre protection chains use case hardened alloy chains linked in patented designs to provide a high level of tyre protection and traction qualities. As a market leader in tyre protection chains RUD have a high level of technical know – how and a comprehensive product range.
There are numerous benefits to using RUD's top quality tyre protection chains such as three wear levels to provide a greater wear resistance, sharp edges on the outer surface to increase traction and multiple link designs to suit a wide range of aggressive and low traction surfaces. The designs and benefits vary to each project and specific require-ments.
RUD's innovative tyre protection chains ensure that customers in demanding working environments can operate effec-tively and safely. Working machines in areas with fire and hot slag conditions can be very dangerous and lead to loss of equipment through burnt tyres. With RUD's tyre protection chains they offer specially developed hardened forged wear links which guarantee optimal tyre protection in the use on hot and burning surfaces.
RUD pride themselves in being a market leader in the tyre protection chains market and also being at the forefront of the latest revolutionary technological innovations. RUD's latest advanced innovation is The Chain Monitoring System (CMS). CMS is the first system of its kind to utilise the proven Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology in tyre protection chain applications. The CMS enables technicians to electronically capture live service and performance data on site. This then allows the technicians to provide valuable tailored reporting resulting in efficient and quick decisions on optimising machines.
Primarily the CMS provides technicians and operators with a high level of reporting data helping them maximise their tyre protection chains through: increased safety and traction from less tyre change outs, increased machine availabil-ity due to reduced downtime, tyre damage and repair. The benefits are countless, one of the most important factors being the reduced operating expenses from lower fuel burn and less tyre replacements.
RUD offer standard and specialised applications to meet the specific demands and requirements of your working envi-ronments. As a leading manufacturer and innovative product provider you can be confident in the decision that RUD will deliver top quality products, unrivalled support and technical advice to help meet even the most demanding circumstances.
