Case Study

The Problem

The Sandvik / Tamrock DR560 hydraulic cylinder trunnion piston rod (part no CX014799-003) was reported by a tier 1 iron ore miner to be failing earlier than expected.  After being investigated by Geographe, it was found that the rod was susceptible to fatigue failure in normal operating conditions.

The Solution

By removing the welding joints and replacing them with a one-piece design, there have been no further reported failures from the iron ore miner.  The customer who have used our one-piece design cylinder rod, has found the part to have created savings from no longer requiring additional maintenance and downtime on the DR560 Drill fleet.
