The long-vehicle or the difference between a tandem for the football team, and a necessary solution for mammoth transports. Yes, exactly! The speech is of heavy transports be carried out preferably in the evening or at night, or during off-peak times on German roads. With a length of up to 23.60 m, with a width of up to 3 m and a gross vehicle weight of more than 40 t, heavy transports are a gigantic spectacle. Even goods that exceed these limits, can be carried across as transport from A to B by Germany. This impressed in addition to the remarkable performance of the driver of such transports, as the enormity of the goods to be transported. Huge published transformers, construction cranes and components for wind turbines affect years the viewer such as genetically engineered accessories from the popular Fisher-technology box of the 70s and 80s. But the huge or particularly heavy goods transport is not only on the streets a considerable challenge. Also within a company, it may be already tricky if, for example, a voluminous or loading of component must be carried by a Hall in the next.
But until a transport also internally, a company is possible, a bulwark of logistical, organizational and structural engineering excellence is not uncommon necessary, because with a stroller, so gigantic goods can be most difficult transport. At the beginning is always the question with what vehicle and this special challenge which equipment can be implemented in practice. A suitable towing vehicle is found, it must now analyze the required heavy duty trailer must meet the requirements. It is to comply with necessary safety provisions and to take into account the static conditions to meet specific additional requirements for the heavy load racks in practice delivers what it promises. A failure of the trailer during transport, could see Circumstances bring fatal consequences. Metal construction companies such as metal construction-Maas from Nordenham in the North Sea, specialise in the construction of individual transport systems and heavy load hanger and have grown the requirement to develop single special designs depending on the requests, to construct, and ultimately to make.
In doing so, the possibilities are almost endless and leave room for individuality. Flat cars, transport tables or special solutions such as the A cars for the transport of large components and metal sheets are implemented in Nordenham and found worldwide in use. After the metal construction company has sent the heavy duty trailer on the journey, the driver now takes over the sometimes the most important part of the overall company heavy”and shoehorned the precious cargo skillfully to curves and even through the eye of a needle. While he does not often so some feat. Probably, it is really easy to build a tandem even with 11 men and therefore across the country to cycle, as a heavy load of a Carry out the factory premises.
