How TOMS Achieves Mining Site Productivity Goals according to Kal Tire

    With instant, visual communication between your entire fleet planning team, more tire work can be performed while trucks are already down for maintenance. Now everyone is on the same page and working toward greater uptime.

    Now in use at more than 100 mining sites across five continents, TOMS also allows customers to draw on Kal Tire’s global practices so benchmarks can be set to improve fleet use even further.

    The tire management system that enables action

    TOMS helps you leverage data, make informed decisions and reach your goals with different features:

    • Real-time tire performance data, including fleet inspection findings and images.
    • A common language is used to describe equipment, processes and tire work codes.
    • Standard measures and KPI’s confer consistent reporting and service performance measurement.
    • Shared insights and benchmarks as Kal Tire teams around the world access tire management data from a single platform. Aggregated data benchmarks tire performance, downtime, haul fleet productivity and more to identify ways to improve fleet use.

    Real-time data capture drives fleet inspection reports. A color-coded inspection report shows the state of tires and rims on each piece of managed equipment, and standard maintenance priority codes flag potential tire work.

    With TOMS’ mobile fleet inspection app, inspectors instantly capture and share tire damage images and color-coded findings. Now tire managers and miners can discuss how to schedule required tire work.

    Improve fleet inspection compliance & safety

    Using agreed benchmarks and schedules, TOMS automates planned work orders such as fleet inspections and front tire rotations. Regular fleet inspections can catch critical issues that require immediate attention and reduce safety risks.

    Kal Tire’s equipment-specific safe work procedures are also incorporated directly into the program.
