Custom Designed Platform Tipper06 Jul 2014
Custom Designed Platform Tipper that minimises the time taken to tip, improving your turnaround time.
Its important to remember that the time it takes to unload and reload your trailer is essentially time that is wasted, so we’ve built these platform tippers to minimise the time it takes to tip, allowing for a quicker turn around.
So here you can see the trailer in its standard driving position, and you can see the gap between the A and the B trailer. For this combination to tip we need the B trailer to close up to the A trailer.
To do this we have specially designed a turntable that actually slides forward. We will just flick to the inventor application where you can see the turntable sliding forward. There you can see the turntable sliding forward and here you can see the B trailer sliding forward. It’s pushing up against that A trailer. So when this combination is lifted on a platform you will see that the tailgate of the A trailer actually opens into the bin of the B trailer.
We will pan up so you can get a better view of that. There you go. You can see the tailgate opening into the B trailer. This allows the combination to unload more efficiently reducing the turnaround time and increasing productivity. Here you can see an image in the flesh of the product in the A trailer tipping into the B trailer.
