MTG attended the Wodcon XXI World Dredging Congress and Exhibition from June 13-17, 2016, introducing its latest solutions for the dredging market.
The new MTG Systems DMet is a G.E.T system ideal for cutter and hopper dredgers, which improves productivity and increases protection, even for applications such as hard rock. This system features a self-sharpening tooth design with a higher wear material ratio. The system also includes a hammerless locking technology, MTG Twist, which provides a quick, easy and safe tooth replacement.
With a range of teeth with optional use of inserts and extra protection for the adapter, the MTG Systems DMet is robust and resistant, thanks to the stabilization in all load directions, the manufacturer said.The tooth-adapter fitting system contact surfaces are perpendicular to the direction of the main forces, allowing better load distribution and reducing plastic deformation of the fitting system.
“We are growing very fast the field of dredging since we started our dredging division in 2013 and we have consolidated as a solid alternative in the segment of high quality cutting systems. Currently, we are even manufacturing our own cutter head, thanks to our new facilities, equipped with the latest technology and equipment. Therefore, we consider this congress as the place to be, thanks to its international focus among the dredging community worldwide,” said Ana Cabezas,MTG Key Account Manager, Dredge.
