Global undercarriage supplier Berco will unveil new products in both its Platinum Line and Aftermarket line at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020, North America’s largest construction trade show, that begins on March 10, 2020. For more than 100 years Berco has been creating solutions for machinery by producing undercarriages for mining, construction, forestry and agricultural machines. Berco is now part of the thyssenkrupp Forged Technology Group, which produces components and systems for the automotive, truck and construction machinery industries.
Berco launched its Platinum Line of products in 2019 with the goal of improving undercarriage lifetimes and reducing the cost per hour to operate machinery in mining, large construction and the oil and gas markets. The undercarriage makes up about 50 percent of the cost of owning tracked machines. Berco’s replacement parts meet technical specifications and are made of high-quality materials that deliver both value and performance for customers.
At CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020, Berco is unveiling these new products in the Platinum Line:
- A new chain and roller configuration designed specifically for forestry machinery. Their new chain delivers up to 25 percent longer lifetime thanks to its large foot print track link, increased bushing strap and double flange track roller.
- The Berco 800 HP Track Chain that is designed for heavy-duty use in all kinds of weather. A reinforced link and stronger pins and bushing stand up to heavy loads reducing maintenance downtime.
In its Aftermarket Line Berco is premiering:
Two new 190 mm pitch chains for use on 16 to 22-ton excavators. That means there will only be two families of part numbers to cover relevant machines which simplifies ordering and warehousing.
For more than 100 years Berco has been developing tailor-made undercarriages for machines. Materials are forged the Italian way and there is a commitment to constant innovation. A singular focus on making better undercarriages allows Berco to mesh its core values of quality, safety and high-performance. Berco of America has operated in the United States for 25 years with a production and distribution network that includes facilities in Wisconsin, Texas, Washington and North Carolina.
Parent company thyssenkrupp Forged Technologies operates more than 15 forging presses in 18 locations around the world including Germany, Italy, Bulgaria, Mexico, Brazil, India, China and the United States. In addition to undercarriage systems and components, the Forged Technologies Group makes forged and machine engines as well as transmission and suspension components. The group employs more than 7000 people worldwide and calculates that every fifth tracked construction vehicle in the world uses thyssenkrupp forged undercarriage systems.
