Case details

Industry Trailers and body builders

By removing stiffeners and using the high load and lifetime performance of Hardox® 450, the weight of the tipper body could be reduced by 50%. This, in turn, increases the load capacity of the truck, reducing fuel consumption and emissions per ton transported, which is even more important in city traffic, where this truck is operating.
