The profitability of any mining operation relies heavily on the efficiency of drill rigs. To keep the cost per meter as low as possible, downtime of the machines must be kept to a minimum. The choice of drill rig tires plays an important role in getting the most out of your rig and maximizing productivity.
Typically, a drill rig does not cover that much mileage during its operating life, but its tires still face many challenges. Puncture risk from sharp rocks, drill cuttings, wet and slippery stones, maneuvering in cramped tunnels… the underground world of mining can be unforgiving. Mining and tunneling work in such demanding conditions require mining tires designed specifically for its challenges. This is what Nokian Tyres is specialized in – making your every workday safer and more efficient.
