Michelin adds to earthmover tire training
Michelin Earthmover Tires had added several new components to its mining tire best practices seminar, conducted near Michelin North America Inc.'s headquarters in Greenville, S.C.
The course teaches attendees how to lower operating costs, improve productivity and extend tire life.
“In addition to helping mine operators get the maximum life out of their tires, we’re helping them become even better business people by sharing practices we have gathered from other mining companies,” says Terry Beach, director of earthmover training, Michelin Earthmover Tires.
The seminar is taught by instructors from Michelin and Klinge & Co. "Along with tire and rim maintenance best practices, the session includes management topics like market intelligence and supply chain; operational factors such as speed, haul road design, road maintenance and load management; and vehicle issues like strut maintenance, alignment and bed modifications."
