Bullant Underground Tray Design & Prototype

Client DT Hi Load Australia

We worked closely with DT Hi Load to develop an underground truck tray for Atlas Copco MT6020 trucks.

The tray was developed to achieve:

  • 25% lighter than the OEM solution

  • Achieve a 12% increase in material volume transported

  • Better payload ejection and payload hangup that OEM

After 2 successful trials at a mine site in WA, the tray was proven to provide maximum payload to the end user, without overloading the truck.

We undertook the following engineering services as part of this job:

  • Ground up conceptual design

  • Integration on OEM chassis

  • Full detailing of all parts

  • Iterative FEA analysis of entire tray structure

  • Trialing with mine-site and DT R&D team

  • Development of some jigs and fixtures for planned production
