Mining and tunnelling tyres
The world of mining and tunnelling machine tyres is a rough one, with plenty of cuts and bruises. The loads are heavy and the ground is extremely challenging for the tyres, so mining tyres are in a class of their own in the tyre world. Nokian Heavy Tyres is highly familiar with what is required both of mining tyres and in tunnel-building-machine tyres. Intensive development work with end users and world-leading machine manufacturers guarantees the best possible outcome. » Technical manuals

Added durability with special products
We have developed a cut- and crack-resistant (CCR) rubber compound that enhances the performance of demanding transportation and mining tasks. The durable mining tyres that use this compound can be used on a wet and slippery surface if required, as well as in changing temperatures. We offer special tyres for mine loaders, drilling rigs, and various other mining equipment.
The Nokian Mine product range offers the correct tyre
The Nokian Mine is a mining tyre with sturdy structure for drilling rigs, and it is an excellent choice for a tunnelling machine. The sharp lateral grooves of this tyre remove water and mud efficiently, improving grip. The Nokian Mine L-5S mining loader tyre is equipped with thick sidewalls and protection against abrasion. This mining tyre has a large rubber mass, which maximises durability and guarantees long maintenance intervals. This helps provide more hours of efficient mine loader operation, and the machine operator can concentrate on what is essential.
Reliability essential for mining and tunnelling tyres
A mining entrepreneur wants to get as many hours of efficient operation from the tyre as possible in the actual mining operation. If the mining machine breaks down in a difficult place, the work of the whole mine could be disrupted. Nokian Heavy Tyres is familiar with these risks and concentrates on developing the kinds of mining and tunnelling tyres that minimise interruptions. In addition to wear-resistance and cut- and crack-resistance, the need for grip suitable for the purpose of use is taken into consideration in the development of the tyre.
Product development in awareness of requirements
A well-designed mining tyre decreases the stress of the operator. Sturdy, stable tunnelling machine tyres make the work go more quickly. Not only do Nokian Heavy Tyres product development innovations increase the number of operating hours, but they also make every hour of mining machine operation more efficient and productive.
