Designed for Product Durability

Bradken's Penetrator cast lip is designed with the harshest digging conditions in mind.  Bradken has used extensive Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to ensure the end result will meet the needs and requirements of mine sites around the world.  The high strength, single beam design ensures maximum lip service life while the underside lip shroud recess and raised Defender lip shroud profile increases the shroud life and production, whilst reducing ongoing maintenance costs.

Penetrator Lip Profile

The Penetrator cast lip profile ensures material flow is optimised with inline shrouds, which in turn also enables improved penetration.
