Case details

Industry Trailers and body builders

This semi-trailer scrap box was designed to become super light, using laser welded sidewalls with integrated top beam and floor made of Hardox® 450. In addition, Strenx® 700 material was used in the trailer chassis. This means a total weight reduction of 3 tons compared to similar solutions of standard design. This increases the load capacity by approximately 10%.
