Showcasing its growth within the mining industry, MAXAM Tire will take to the stage at booth 27811, South Hall for the MINEXPO in Las Vegas, Nevada between 13-15th September. MAXAM will showcase its largest mining tyre, the MS453, as well as a range of OTR products.

MAXAM’s 63-Inch MS453 Tyre Hits MINEXPO 2021

Visitors to the MINEXPO 2021 will be able to see how MAXAM Tire is differentiating from the competition by showcasing its largest mining tyre, as well as a host of other products designed to offer comprehensive solutions within mining operations.

The MS453 was designed by MAXAM to handle severe challenges on haul roads, as the tyre features an aggressive, unique tread design, coupled with a reinforced sidewall. Designed using MAXAM’s proprietary two-stage method, this means that the tyre has an improved placement of the belt and tread package on the casing. In terms of testing, the tyre was used across mine sites in Nevada, as well as other global sites, surpassing the expectations of customers looking to see how well it handled the terrain.

We look forward to educating customers on the MAXAM advantage for the mining industry at the show,” says Matt Johnson, VP of MAXAM Mining Group. The release of the 63-inch program completes the series of rigid haul truck tyres to the market. “Our commitment to the 63-inch, which is an integral part of the mining industry’s future, defines our dedication to being a serious global business partner for the industry.”

As well as the MS453, MAXAM’s full range of OTR solutions will be showcased, with the company displaying several mining support equipment tyres that aid the productivity of mining operations. One of these tyres is the MS405, which was approved by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM), CAT. Featuring a deep E4/L4 lug pattern that combines excellent grip, stability, and performance, the MS405 provides users with a solution that meets all harsh demands. Designed to minimise vibration at higher cycle speeds, the MS405 provides loaders, graders, and earthmovers a particularly low cost-per-hour for the industry. Similar to its other OEM-approved OTR products, the MS405 marks a key accomplishment and highlights MAXAM’s commitment to bringing viable solutions to the market.

“Our OEM-approved products show how MAXAM continues to bring performance-driven solutions to customers globally,” said Troy Kline, President of MAXAM North America. “Our objective is to provide customers with products that increase their productivity and to focus on providing the best customer experience. We are not just a tyre company, we’re a true business solutions provider.”

Using the opportunity at one of the biggest global mining shows, MAXAM hopes to emphasise the natural progression of the company becoming a bigger player in the large mining tyre business. Performing at a level that makes its offerings extremely competitive with other top manufactures, MAXAM Tire has invested heavily in its large OTR tyre line for haulage applications. The company plans to continue investing in the development of new and improved products, bringing comprehensive global solutions that exceed expectations.
