MTG has created a new solid tooth that combines - in a single, solid piece - the tooth and the intermediate adapter, which traditionally make up the TwinMet three-part system, namely the intermediate adapter, the tooth and the locking system.
The new MT5U is available in size 5 and has been designed for draglines or large hydraulic excavators operating with heavy mining applications. The solid tooth boasts a mechanism of self-sharpening panels for greater, improved penetration.
Another of the innovations presented for the MTG Systems TwinMet is the new version of the TwinMet size 5 weld-on nose version for 300 to 500-ton hydraulic excavators and cast lip draglines.
This new component (1MT5WN-H) boasts the same main characteristics as the standard (1MT5WN) nose, the main difference being the rear chamfer, which has been designed in such a way that it facilitates the process of welding when carried out horizontally from the higher or lower sections of the nose. In line with our objective of offering a customized service, this nose is an adaptation of the standard (1MT5WN) nose, designed to satisfy a need communicated to us by our clients.
