KVX Bolt-on Technology

KVX GET is a "system", where the Lip and other GET components work together to bring you unique benefits:

1. Recessed bolt heads mean:
  • better penetration & roductivity
  • less hang-ups during dumping
  • no exposed nuts inside the bucket
 2. Threaded lip and/or GET components mean:
  • positive retention throughout wear life
  • more useable wear material (no mounts or plough bolt heads to wear off)
  • elimination of troublesome nuts, washers, locks or retainers
 3. KVX bolts mean:
  • far superior GET retention than both plough bolt systems & pinned/locked systems
  • high strength, enhancing impact resistance & allowing fitment of longer-life components which protrude further in front of the Lip than conventional bolt or pin/lock systems can retain
 4. Flat faced components mean up to100% useable steel !
  • after use as a GET component, competitive shrouds, adapters & teeth are discarded as scrap (often more than 50% "throw-away"). In contrast, KVX's "flat" GET components are re-used as wear & impact liners elsewhere in the mining operation, saving you money on alternative wear products
 5. Adapterless & retainerless KVX design means:
  • no adapters, retainers or profile bars to repair or replace
  • no adapter, mount or profile bar welding
  • almost zero risk of GET loss
  • less risk of significant repair and downtime related to site costs due to lost GET parts damaging other plant
  • excellent protection for underside of lip & bucket (minimal bucket underside wear)
  • thinner frontal GET/lip profile for superior productivity and fuel efficiency plus less wheel spin
 6. Sagitta steel means:
  • longer GET life than typical castings (due to toughness, hardness and available steel)
  • fewer change-outs and less bucket & GET Maintenance
  • superior Reliability
