Schlam has teamed up with global steel giant SSAB to offer the mining industry the world-renowned Hercules dump body built with Hardox® wear plate after Schlam was accepted into the Hardox® In My Body program.
Glenn Brearey, General Manager of Schlam Payload Solutions, said that Schlam chooses to use Hardox® steel due to its wear resistance, hardness, strength, and overall performance, which surpasses the metal found in competitors dump bodies.
"Hardox® has used the latest technology to create the world's leading abrasion-resistant steel giving our clients extended service life and high productivity in the most challenging mining environments.
"The Hercules is the dump body of choice for many Tier 1 miners around the globe due it's lightweight and therefore greater payload potential. By using Hardox® wear plate in the Hercules HX we're adding another dimension to our already world-class offering," said Glenn.
The Hercules HX can withstand heavy impacts without permanent deformation or cracking, ensuring you can get more service life from your Hercules HX investment, resulting in a lower total cost of ownership.
Every Hercules HX made by Schlam will have a "Hardox® In My Body" decal on it to verify that it's been manufactured using Hardox® wear plate and not an inferior imitation.
SSAB Marketing Manager - South East Asia & Pacific – Kirs Chua says that the Hardox® in My Body logo ensures you're getting a superior steel product manufactured by a qualified program member.
"Each application with the sign attached has passed our strict quality control and is approved as a premium product by the SSAB board. Specialists within wear and structural technology carefully analyse each application regarding welding quality, manufacturing process and design.
"Each sign has a unique ID that is traceable and can secure the origin and material," said Kris.
Every Hercules HX is custom engineered and built from the ground up based on your unique operational requirements and is designed to deliver the same outcomes across all commodities, including coal, gold, copper and iron ore.
