and service life by incorporating a
number of key differentiating features
that optimise wear life and maximise
machine uptime.
Ovation crawler shoes are induction
hardened to provide increased wear
resistance and impact resistance
in high abrasion and high impact
environments. Ovation shoes are
further supported by Bradken’s
patented ‘Pillar of Strength’ which
provides greater structural integrity
to prevent crushing of the roller path
On the back of Bradken’s 30 years’
experience as a premium supplier
of large mining undercarriage
equipment, the Ovation range of
crawler shoes and undercarriage
componentry was developed to
provide improved performance for
Caterpillar Electric Rope Shovel
users.
Designed in collaboration with
our customers, the Ovation range
successfully addresses concerns
regarding product performance
as the crawler shoe wears.
Another innovative feature of the
Ovation range is the inclusion of
recessed pockets in the crawler
shoes, which enable maintenance
operators to use a hydraulic jack
to safely eject pins during the
disassembly
process,
greatly
improving personal safety and also
reducing the amount of downtime
required for change-outs.
Since unofficially hitting the market in
late 2013, Bradken has sold a number
of Ovation undercarriage sets to
customers in mining regions all over
the world. The official product launch
however took place at the first ever
Bradken Undercarriage User Group
Conference held in Fort McMurray
in the heart of the Athabasca Oil
Sands in Alberta, Canada.
The conference was attended by a
group of key-decision makers from
various mining customers in the
region and involved a series of talks
