The feld support and engineers at Unifed examined our jaw dies and found the tooth profles were holding back our productivity … Unifed then designed a more aggressive tooth pattern for us. They also found that the profles on our cone liners weren't the best, so they re-designed the crushing zone. They recommended replacing the manganese with Unifed's High-Performance – 18% Mn Casting. Our throughput increased 20% and we're saving money on fewer change-outs. Best of all, whenever we do need a change-out, their 16 national locations get our parts on site and in production in no time. Their redesigns, adjustments and on time delivery made serious improvements to our operation's performance."

To capitalize on this international growth, Babcock is investing in a continuous improvement program, capturing best practices from every part of its Mining and Construc- tion operations and sharing these for the benefit of all its customers. Commencing in North America, an international Babcock team is eval- uating processes, procedures and governance in detail to ensure that fleet-management services remain robust and future proofed for growth across the globe.
