The new Optitooth Premium jaw plates, which are described as “more sustainable”, are now available alongside Sandvik’s original Optitooth jaw plates. 

According to the manufacturer, initial product tests have shown that the Premium plates last up to 10% longer than the company’s existing Optitooth jaw plates, and up to 40% longer than its standard ones.

The Premium plates have been redesigned with a new profile that uses a higher percentage of the machine’s jaw. 

According to Sandvik, not only does the new profile shape allow for better breakage and improved material flow - which produces a higher quality product, it also reduces machine service time as the plates are easier to remove. This in turn reduces downtime and saves money.

“We wanted to design a jaw plate which would last longer than your average jaw plate, whilst at the same time bringing with it a number of customer benefits to optimize productivity and lower overall operating costs,” said Sandvik.

Sandvik, which is also offering the new plates as ready-to-order Optitooth kits, said that “all of the above results in increased efficiency and higher productivity by up to 20%”, compared to its existing jaw plates.
