BKT wins SQEP Sil­ver Award from Cater­pil­lar

NBM&CW - - BKT -

Win­ning the SQEP Sil­ver Award from Cater­pil­lar, along with Ho­molo­gaƟon of two of its Earth­max mod­els for Cat Dump Trucks, is no small feat for a com­pany that has strongly ad­hered to global qual­ity stan­dards to be­come a well-known in­ter­naƟonal OEM sup­plier from In­dia

Balkr­ishna In­dus­tries Ltd (BKT) was awarded the SQEP Sil­ver Award by Cater­pil­lar for its Chopanki pro­duc­tion plant, which was set up in 2006 for pro­duc­tion of all­steel ra­dial tyres for the in­dus­trial and OTR sec­tors. The pres­ti­gious Award is be­stowed to Cater­pil­lar sup­pli­ers who achieve the high­est lev­els of qual­ity and process con­trol. The Award cer­ti­fies the In­dian multi­na­tional com­pany’s com­mit­ment to high-qual­ity so­lu­tions, prod­uct per­for­mance, and em­pha­sis on sustainability and in­no­va­tion. Com­ments

“The Cater­pil­lar SQEP Sil­ver Award not only con­firms our prod­uct’s qual­ity, but also the excellence of our pro­duc­tion sys­tem. The ho­molo­ga­tion as of­fi­cial CAT sup­plier is a fur­ther ac­knowl­edge­ment of our high spe­cial­ist level and ev­i­dence of our de­vel­op­ment and growth as an OEM, tes­ti­fy­ing the qual­ity and re­li­a­bil­ity that BKT has achieved for large global man­u­fac­tur­ers.”

Ho­molo­ga­tion of two Earth­max mod­els for Cat Dump Trucks

BKT has ob­tained ho­molo­ga­tion for the sup­ply of its two tyres: Earth­max SR 47 and Earth­max SR 45 for two dif­fer­ent mod­els of CAT dump trucks. The CAT 773E with a ca­pac­ity of 60 tons is fit­ted with Earth­max SR 47 24.00 R 35, and CAT 770G with a ca­pac­ity of 40 tons is fit­ted with Earth­max SR 45 size 18.00 R 33. The dump trucks are used for mining and quarry ap­pli­ca­tions as well as in the construction sec­tor. The dump trucks are highly pro­duc­tive and re­li­able, and de­signed to meet the user’s need to trans­port more ma­te­rial at a lower cost per ton.

Earth­max SR 47 has been specif­i­cally de­vel­oped for rigid dumpers and ma­te­rial trans­port on the most crit­i­cal sur­faces such as of rock quar­ries. A char­ac­ter­is­tic fea­ture is its long life-cy­cle, thanks to the deep E4-class tread and the spe­cial lug pat­tern that pro­vides ex­cel­lent trac­tion in ad­di­tion to reg­u­lar tread wear. This pat­tern is also avail­able with a spe­cial ‘cut-re­sis­tant’ com­pound ver­sion for en­hanced re­sis­tance against cuts and punc­tures. Earth­max SR 47 is avail­able in sizes E4-class 18.00 R 33 and 24.00 R 35.

Earth­max SR 45 is also made of a spe­cial com­pound that is par­tic­u­larly re­sis­tant to cuts, abra­sion and im­pacts, risks that of­ten oc­cur un­der ex­treme op­er­at­ing con­di­tions. There in sig­nif­i­cantly re­duced equip­ment stand­still times, and thereby, in­creased pro­duc­tiv­ity. More­over, the spe­cial lug de­sign pro­vides ex­tra­or­di­nary trac­tion,
