FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NORTH BAY, ONTARIO, July 31, 2019 – Specialized Maintenance Equipment (SME) a member of The NMT Group of Companies, experts in providing high-tech, heavy duty machines for the international mining industry, today announced the successful introduction of the Titan220e battery powered truck jacking system (Titan220e).
The patented Titan220e is designed to keep operators safe by using remote control to easily position the Titan220e under the chassis of a haul truck utilizing the OEM certified lifting points, elevate and stabilize a complete axle of a large haul truck. The Titan220e is a fast, safe and effective tool for tire and maintenance technicians to perform their work. The latest hydraulic and electronic technology is used to transform the Titan220e into a certified safety stand, eliminating the need for secondary supports. Tire and truck maintenance time is reduced, increasing truck availability.
“Above standard safety is built into every piece of equipment designed and manufactured at the NMT Group. The Titan220 uses hydraulic locking valves plus four secondary mechanical locking arms when lifting and securing the load. The mechanical locking arms gives the operator visual confirmation that the load is secure. Safety, you can see!” Wayne Desormeau, Global Product and Innovation Manager, SME.
SME has diesel prototypes currently operating in South America (SLT220). Government and environmental mandates have forced mine sites to demand a cleaner solution. SME listened to their customers’ needs and are happy to introduce a successful battery electric Titan220e. This machine has been designed to operate with optional power modules, diesel or electric (dry cell or li-ion).
