Austin Engineering have officially launched its new off-highway dump truck body design.
Dubbed the Westech Optima, it was unveiled at the company's Perth office.
Mark Richards, Austin Engineering's Perth operations manager, said “it was great to see such a high level of interest at the recent launch as we feel that many mine sites can benefit from the Optima’s ability to enhance haul truck performance".
“The Westech Optima body is optimised to provide greater productivity by maximising payload,” he said.
“Because we design each body to suit mine specific operating conditions, the Optima is a low maintenance body.”
Austin Engineering stated the body is a low maintenance, high strength piece of equipment, and has been engineered to suit specific material conditions and loading tools.
"Optima has also been analysed with the latest FEA and load simulation software, and is also compatible with all OEM chassis."
