Meet the Next Generation Cat 789 Mining Truck

The latest generation of 193 t (rated payload) Cat 789 mining truck the main equipment manufacturer claims to rely on a heritage of proven performance »to offer efficiency gains, the next generation of cabin comfort and state-of-the-art connectivity.”

He adds that the design “provides a weight advantage over the competition to carry more gear with each load. and deliver a cost-per-ton advantage. A proven performer, top availability reliability reduces overall costs to deliver a better bottom line.

The new 789 moves more material with less fuel, delivering up to 9% reduced fuel consumption compared to Tier 2 design. An advanced powertrain increases engine life by 12% and offers better shifting and acceleration. “To offering the highest power in its class, edoes the mining truck have 10% more payload and is greater than 5% faster on a slope that competitive trucks.

With its flexible designthe Cat 3516E engine powering the new 789 is fuel-optimized for less regulated countries or can be configured with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) to meet EU Staage V and US EPA Level 4 final standards. TWoh power selections offers 1,417 kW (1,900 hp) to match the performance of existing fleet trucks or 1,566 kW (2,100 hp) for faster cycle times.

Delivery long-lasting reliability, the New engine characteristics Ddesign modifications to the camshaft and piston for optimalAl fuel consumption, and of construction cylinder head and crankshaft improvements deliver 12% After sustainability than the 3516C. Engineit is 23% net increase in torque book unrivaled tractive force when acceleratingon steep slopes and rough terrain.

Stoppedoffering smoother transition gear changes for a smoother ride, the 789″‘s APECS (Advanced Power Electronic Control Strategy) transmission delivers productivity and efficiency improvements that can reduce cycle times. Forward momentum and torque are maintained while shifting with optimum gear selection reresulting in faster acceleration. It offers more continuous torque and rim pull at deliver more power to the ground, allowing a higher gear to be used on grade to optimize fuel efficiency.

A choice of several body style configurations allow mines to outfit the 789 to meet specific site needs. The HuhPperformance Body maximize payload decreasing the ballastby 2.0 to 5.0 t (2.2 to 5.5 tons) or more. “The MineSspecific Body excels in mature mines, while VScombination Body combines high volume features and optional liners to transport both ore and overburden. The original standard, double slope Body, provides excellent load retentionand the X Body features the latest structural designs and offers more volume for less weight.

The 789s larger, more ergonomic new generation cabin improve the operator Efficiency and productivity. At 17 years old% wider, the cabin guided tour ofsign with fully adjustable center console offers 34% more operator space, 11% mmore legroom and 19% more room for the shoulders. With 40% less sound pressure level (SPL), quieter cabin includes automated temperature control and filtration cabin for a more comfortable environmentsnore.

Two ideally located 254mm (10 inches) the screens bring together the whole machine data, controls and orientation informationand apps like Cat MineStar to reduce the number of displays required. New speed coaching provides operators with real-time feedback on the truck operation to maximize productivity, while more accurate measurements on the payload monitoring system provides improved charging followed. Its 360 degree panoramic camera with object detection at alert operators to hazards within the immediate vicinity Crafts it is easier to use the 789 safely. Simplifying operation and minimizing cycle times, a new optional auto-lift feature at theautomatically lift the body and control the motor speed.

Fully integrated Cat electronics on the 789 includes two-wire 100 Mbps Ethernet connectivity for faster data transfer to improve access to information. The technology platform of the future understand every 789 be factoryequipped with Cat Product Link Elite™ with Standard connectivity through 4G/LTE cellular and cellular/satellite radio available for reliable data transfer.

The ability to access and analyze accurate real-time data enables faster diagnostics and improves the ability to predict and prevent machine failures, thereby improving truck uptime. A new telematics platform promotes greater data acquisition and faster transmission to locally hosted sites or cloud-based applications such as Cat MineStar Solutions. MineStar fleet available, detection and Health Equipment Insights, as well as analysis of standard transport routes, help improve operator performance, maintenance and machine life.

Several major contributors to truck downtime have been reduced on the 789. His new module HVAC (Heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system improves reliability and consolidates componentsso the whole system can be removed and replaced quickly. Shortening engine the time of removal and installation, modular radiator allows complete rebuildsd out of the truck to reduce downtime.

The 789 The next generation of improved ease of maintenanceincorporates extended interval filters with ground level access, grouped service points and a new centralized service center option. It features an extended coolant life of 12,000 hours. and double the hydraulic and 1000 hour transmission filter life to reduce service time. New remote flash and remote control Troubleshooting assistance to further improve machine availability and performance by providing instant access to the latest software updates and enabling remote controlbleshoot the truck.

Superior braking and the 789’s retarding control is provided by Caterpillar’s patented oil-cooled multiple-disc carrierkes to provide immediate, fade-resistant braking and retarding. Next generation cabin design incorporates roll-over protective structure (ROPS)and the operator is protected by five sides ROPS/FOPS (Falling Object Protective Structure) cover. Big angle mirrors more a bird’s eye view provided by Cat Vision 360 improves visibility in the 789. Part of the MineStar set of solutions, the available Driver safety system alerts operator if fatigue or distraction is detected.

The 789 The next generation mining truck replaces the current one Model 789 Stage V/Tier 4 Final. The popular cat 789D will continue to be produced and is available to the markets apart from North America and Europa.
