- Off Highway Case Study - Hitachi Construction Machinery Co., Ltd Kingpin Bushing
A traditionally problematic area of dump truck design is the upper and lower kingpin bushings on the front suspension. To overcome both wear and galling issues, engineers at Hitachi looked to Materion's ToughMet® alloy.
- Surface Mining Case Study - Bucyrus International Take-up Idler Bushing
To gain competitive advantages for its customers, Bucyrus looked to extend the bushing life in the take-up idlers on their electric mining shovels. Bucyrus sought a high-performance material to replace the manganese bronze used in their take-up idler bushings. They chose Materion's ToughMet® alloy because of its high tensile strength and low friction.
