The goal of systematic mining vehicle wheel inspection and maintenance done by Miilux is to reduce:
- errors made during maintenance work
- tire wearing
- cost of operation through maximum tire and rim life
Wheels must be inspected and maintained because:
- pressurized tire is a bomb
- the bigger the tire the more potential energy it has stored in it
- it is never a minor accident when a wheel is broken during operation or maintenance.
Miilux is inspecting and maintaining the wheels according to Australian standards because there aren’t any European standards in place yet.
