MaxiTRANS launches lightweight Hamelex White tipper chassis

  • Posted on Thursday 8th, June 2017.

Tipper specialist, Hamelex White, has launched a remodelled chassis at the Brisbane Truck Show, boasting an approximate 13 per cent reduction in the chassis tare weight against previous models.

According to Hamelex White parent company, MaxiTRANS, the new chassis will be standard on Hamelex White dog trailers from Q4, 2017.

“Our engineers conducted a thorough Finite Element Analysis on the design, which highlights the strength and flexibility of the chassis construction,” said General Manager Product and Markets, Kevin Manfield.

“We were able to use the results to optimise the design, removing excess material where it wasn’t required, while adding additional material in areas identified as high stress points.”

Installed inside the tipper was MaxiTRANS’ new proprietary tipper liner, ‘Landslide’, which offers the possibility to reduce tip angle by up to 30 per cent.

"This is the first tipper liner in Australia sold directly from the trailer manufacturer, said Manfield.

“It gives us the unique ability to use our collective tipper experience via our leading brands Hamelex White, Lusty EMS and AZMEB, to engineer the tipper and liner in unison to help ensure the ideal tip.”
