www.concreteproducts.com March 2019 • 61 ADVERTISER'S INDEX INNOVATIONS EQUIPMENT & PRODUCTS Austria's Winkelbauer GmbH is an early adopter of SSAB's new wear-resistant steel. Upgrading to Hardox 500 Tuf allows the heavy-duty bucket fabricator's customers to load more and extend the service life of their equipment. The material is the first 500 Brinell (HB) wear plate exhib- iting properties on a par with structural steel. It delivers high strength, extreme hardness and guaranteed toughness in a single wear plate. Hardox 500 Tuf offers a 70-100 percent longer service life compared to conventional 400 HB AR steel, SSAB engineers contend, and features improved dent protection. "We're telling customers [they] have two favorable options: Use Hardox 500 Tuf to make the bucket lighter, while the service life remains as long as you're used to from a Winkelbauer bucket. Or use Hardox 500 Tuf in the same dimensions as before to get a considerably longer service life and reduced costs thanks to longer service intervals," says Michael Winkel- bauer, chief executive officer. By using Hardox 500 Tuf in a thinner dimension, the new generation of Winkelbauer heavy-duty buckets has 10-16 percent less tare weight with the same service life as the previ- ous generation. This allows for an increase of HARDOX 500 TUF STEEL HELPS GET TOUGH ON BUCKET WEAR A heavy-duty bucket of Hardox 500 Tuf construction enables operators to transfer 24 tons of aggregate in three cycles without exceeding loader manufacturer's load limit. loaded volume by 6-10 percent at the same total weight. To meet a particular customer's request, Winkelbauer designed a bucket that arms the operator to load a truck to its 24-ton maximum capacity with only three turns, cut- ting load cycle time by 25 percent. The estimated relative service life for Hardox 500 Tuf is 85-100 percent longer than for Hardox 400, according to SSAB's wear cal- culation software, WearCalc, based on sliding wear with granite. Hardox 500 Tuf welding and machining can be performed with the same kind of equipment used for other Hardox grades. Bendability recommendations are sim- ilar to those for Hardox 450. — SSAB Inc., Pittsburgh, 412/203-1620, 412/680-0080 • TLS 33/52 42S • CALL US for more info on pre-owned creteveyors 800/635/6729 MARKETPLACE CLASSIFIEDS Ace-Co/A Division of Libra Systems . . . . . . . . . www . ace-co . com . . . . . . . . . . 33 Allen-Villere Partners . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . allenvillere . com . . . . . . . . . . 29 American GeoThermal . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . amgeo . com . . . . . . . . . . . . . 2 Atlas Polar . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . www . atlaspolar . com . . . . . . . . . . 8 BFK Technologies . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . www . bfktech . com . . . . . . . . . 26 BinMaster . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . www . binmaster . com . . . . . . . . . 15 Boral Resources . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . www . headwatersresources . com . . . . . 21 C & W Mfg and Sales Co . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . www . cwmfg . com . . . . . . . . . . 37 CarbonCure Technologies Inc . . . . . . . . . . . www . carboncure . com . . . . . . . . 14 Charah . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . charah . com . . . . . . . . . . . . 17 CON-E-CO . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . www . con-e-co . com . . . . . . . . . 35 Electtrondata NA . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ednorthamerica . com . . . . . . . . . . 5 Enviro-Port . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . www . enviro-port . com . . . . . . . . 34 Fritz-Pak . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . www . fritzpak . com . . . . . . . . . 31 GivenHansco . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . www . givenhansco . com . . . . . . . .
