Trucks are large vehicles, generally used in off-road applications. The purpose of these vehicles is to transport large volumes of materials, with models that can carry up to 400 tons.
They are robust and large pieces of equipment that can move over unconventional surfaces. Among the types of trucks, we can mention conventional trucks, wheel loaders and excavators.
Trucks: Their function is to transport large volumes of materials. They are vehicles with a large bucket that holds tons of ores.
To optimize maintenance on trucks it is possible to monitor engines, axes, wheels, bearings and others.
Excavators: These are very common pieces of equipment in the mining industries. They can be used to dig, churn, and remove large portions of solids from a site. They are basically composed of three elements: a tractor, a bucket, and a boom (movement arm).
For hydraulic and mechanical excavator applications, sensors can be used to monitor components of these assets, such as motors, cylinders, pto , hydraulic pumps, reducers, generators, and slewing bearings.
