Metso Corporation's press release on January 24, 2020 at 14:00 p.m. EET

The Metso Truck Body has received the 2019 Mining Magazine Award in the "Load and Haul" category.  

Mining Magazine's annual awards recognize outstanding new technologies, initiatives and equipment performance across a range of categories in the mining sector. Winners are nominated and voted on by Mining Magazine readers around the world.


Haul more with less

The Metso Truck Body is a one-piece hybrid haul truck body that combines the benefits of rubber and high-strength steel. The elastic rubber lining absorbs the energy of every impact, allowing for a lighter steel structure underneath.

Thanks to the characteristics of the rubber, the Metso Truck Body can absorb maximum shock at the lowest possible weight. The low weight means that more payload can be hauled per round, while the long-lasting rubber lining reduces the need for maintenance. The result is lower overall operating costs.

"Our truck bodies weigh 20-30% less than OEM bodies and can haul up to 12% more payload, which improves process efficiency. In addition, the rubber lining significantly enhances the working environment by lowering the noise level by 50% (10-15 dB) and reducing vibrations by up to 97%," says Lars Skoog, Vice President, Loading and Hauling Solutions, Metso.

The Metso Truck Body was launched at Bauma 2019 and is available for all major off-highway truck models used in quarrying and mining operations. Customers who already have the Metso Truck Body in operation are Boliden in Sweden, Terrafame in Finland and Norsk Stein in Norway. In addition, several orders have been confirmed and will be sent to customers soon.
