MINERS GUIDE TO BAUMA 44 E&MJ • MARCH 2019 Rear-axle Steering Systems Electrohydraulic steering systems for rear axles have been standard in commercial vehicles and complex construction ma- chinery, such as cranes, for many years. In the case of commercial vehicles, the use of electrohydraulic auxiliary steer- ing is primarily to ensure compliance with the legal requirements. Without a steered rear axle, the legally defined minimum turning radius cannot be maintained. Most other machines, such as two- axle loaders, usually have hydrostat- ic front-axle steering. It is obvious that these machines could also benefit from rear-axle steering. Mobil Elektronik (Hall A3 /Stand 115) can equip these machines with the same features that are already standard in mo- bile cranes. Operation will be easy and convenient. The steering mode can be changed at any wheel position. The syn- chronization of the axles with each other is done automatically. Advances in Mineral Processing and More Along with new crushing and screening solutions, Metso (FS.1111/2) will unveil a groundbreaking innovation for off-high- way trucks, enabling mines and quarries to haul more with less. This major prod- uct launch will expand Metso's offering into completely new territory and help customers reach a higher payload while lowering their operating costs. In addition, Metso will showcase a broad range of equipment, wear and spare parts as well as services designed to help make operations more efficient and assets work harder. The solutions to be featured will include cone crushers and slurry pumps. Mobil Elektronik wants to equip mining machines with rear-axle steering.
