Typical components measured using the UT are track rollers, carrier rollers, shoes, bushes, links and, in some cases, idlers. The firm claims that undercarriage management using this system offers various benefits.
The package provides an immediate figure for the wear percentage and gives comparisons with prior inspection measurements and can identify problems causing excessive wear rates. It can also boost component life and predict when it is best to replace components, reducing emergency delivery costs and unplanned downtime. It can also better match components to the application, preventing premature wear, while optimising maintenance for mixed fleets.
A new system is being offered that can improve the efficiency of undercarriage inspections, maximising machine uptime.
