Tipping semi-trailers with tailored blanks

Wear-optimised, troughed floor for a longer lifetime and more payload.

The tipper body of a tipper semi-trailer is designed for the toughest requirements. Abrasive wear and tear is highest at the rear of the tipper body.

Tailored blanks from MEILLER reinforce the tipper semi-trailer of the 44 type MHPS series in exactly this zone – with the same high payload. The result is a perfect combination of wear restistance and weigth.

For your next project we have some tipping semi-trailers on stock. Contact us for more information!

Your benefits:

  • High payload due to lower tare weight
  • Increased lifetime using thicker floor plate
  • Best workmanship in familiar MEILLER quality

Abrasive wear and tear

is highest at the rear of the tipper body

Abrasive wear and tear is highest at the rear of the tipper body
Abrasive wear and tear of the trough floor in % with an initial thickness of 5 mm and a trough length of 7.4 m

The solution: Tailored blanks

Optimum combination of wear resistance and weight

Icon Lifetime

Increased lifetime

In the heavily stressed third at the rear, the
floor plate is 1 mm thicker than in the front
area of the tipper body. This reduces the level
of wear.

Icon Payload optimisation

Payload optimisation

The combination of different floor thicknesses
in the tipper body reduces the tare weight of
the vehicle without any loss of use.

Icon plate quality

Plate quality

Highly wear-resistant, fine-grained steel
(wear-resistant steel) VS 120 with

  • Yield point of approx. 1200 N/mm²
  • Minimum tensile strength of approx. 1350 N/mm²
  • Hardness of approx. 450 HBW (HARDOX® 450 or comparable material)

Variants

Tailored blanks (TB) are available for the 4(5) and 5(6) mm floor plate variants.

  • Variant 4(5): Front area 4 mm, rear third 5 mm
  • Variant 5(6): Front area 5 mm, rear third 6 mm

Advantages of tailored blanks compared to a continuous floor:

  • Weight in the front area of the tipper body reduced by 1 mm floor thickness
  • 81 kg less weight
