Improve Your Productivity with a PBS Vehicle Design

Cart more product,  improved your turning circle, and have less tyre scrub with this PBS vehicle

Transcription

PBS (Performance Based Standards) vehicles can give you a higher level of productivity.

In this example you can see a PBS vehicle that was created on out Inventor application. This is a Quad Semi. This will gross around 50.5 tonne, in comparison to a standard semi that grosses around 46 tonne. That’s approximately a 10% increase with this trailer design. What’s a little difficult to see from this angle as we zoom in is that the rear axle is a steerable axle. It’s designed to be steerable to minimise the scrubbing of the tyres on the road. It will actually give you a much better turning circle.
