Excavator Lips

CQMS Excavator Lips


LC Engineering provides engineering and design to CQMS's range of excavator lips and wear components.

LC Engineering has developed closely with CQMS a new range of excavator lips offering greater performance. The tools and expertise at LC Engineering have enabled this new range to exhibit greater strength, less mass and a slimmer profile. These attributes have been proven in the field to enable greater digging efficiencies.

LC Engineering's depth of foundry knowledge and casting design has added to the assurance of a quality cast lip product provided by CQMS to large OEMs such as Liebherr and Terex.
