8.How To Keep Cargo Stable On Low Bed Trailer

1.Increase the size of the base of support

You can increase the stability of a heavy object by increasing the size of its base of support. Increasing the size does not automatically increase stability. You must increase towards the direction of the oncoming or impeding force.

One way of increasing the base support is to change the position such that the widest part of the object lies on the ground. Another way is to increase the number of contact points with the ground where possible.

For some objects, you may need to change the package or change the position to create an additional contact point.

Also, the lowbed truck for sale transport can widen by some accessories to increase the size of the working platform.

2.Increase friction

The level of frictional resistance between the contact point or points and the base or ground influences the stability of the object. When the level of frictional resistance is low, the object will slip or skid on the ground.

High friction, on the other hand, improves stability, especially on a smooth base. Consider the surface of the contact point and choose to package with a rough surface.

Lay the bottom plate of excavator trailerLay the bottom plate of excavator trailer

Sometimes transporters use sawdust on their low loader truck trailer for sale to keep heavy objects with smooth surfaces stable. You can add any other rough material on the floor or base to increase friction as long as it does not damage the object.

3.Lower the center of gravity

The location of the center of gravity from the base of support determines the stability of an object. If the location is high above the base support, the object is likely to be unstable depending on the size of the support base. This explains why tall objects topple over easily.

The way to increase stability is to lower the center of gravity or reduce the distance between the center of gravity and the ground. So the double drop deck trailer is a good choice, it can make the center lower.

Carry high object while lying on the ground or in a leaning position instead of an upright position. When you incline a tall object or any other object, you automatically lower the center of gravity.

4.Lower the speed

Moving an object at a high speed increases its chances of toppling over. Speed does not necessarily affect the amount of gravitational force on an object. However, speed determines the reaction of the object when faced by an external force.

For instance, if you are transporting an object with 4 Axle heavy low loader trailer at a high speed, a sudden stop or hitting an obstacle will cause the object to topple over. Sometimes stepping on the brakes when driving at a high speed causes the object to fall or slide. If you are carrying the object, walking at a low speed helps to keep the center of gravity or balance point at the same position.

5.Driving skills

Place the object at the center of the base of support

The vertical projection of the center of gravity should be at the center of the base of support. In other words, the balance point should be at the center of the base or ground for the object to remain stable.

Placing the object near any of the edges may cause it to fall, especially when the semi low bed trailer or transporter changes its momentum. By placing the object at the center, you increase the distance that the center of gravity has to travel before it can cause the object to fall.

 

9.Production Process Of Lowbed Truck Trailer

Before production, TITAN technical department must first design and produce drawings according to the needs of the user and the market, so that the technical parameters of the main 40ft step deck trailer and 40ft low bed trailer are matched, and then transferred to the manufacturing department.

1. Stage of cutting steel sheet material

According to the drawings of each part produced by the design department, each part is cut out with a CNC cutting machine, such as beam webs, reinforcement plates, standard small accessories and so on.

2. Submerged arc welding beams, beams fixed

The second step is to fix the cut web and the upper and lower wing plates to weld points, and then weld the beam by submerged arc welding.

3. Opening, calibration beam, through beam

First cut out the web of the beam to cut out U-shaped holes through which the beams can pass, and then fix the welded I-beams in parallel. The result of comparing the beams is very important. If two I-beams have large parallel errors, very serious tire wear will occur.

4. Connect side beams, welding king pins

At this time, the 40 feet low bed trailer of the main beam is basically formed, only the side beams are welded to form the frame structure. And the traction pin traction plate is welded to the position required in the contract, the welding process is required to be high, otherwise, the lowbed trailer will be skewed.

5. Welding frame, welding suspension

At this time, the welding suspension must strictly control the size and maintain the squareness, otherwise it will cause 2 axle low loader for sale malaysia of tire wear.

6. Attach the front neck

Drop deck trailer with front neck have this process, and low loader for sale in kenya do not have this process. The front neck of the low bed trailer is welded up. Welding is done to strengthen the plate. There is no problem with the strength. TITAN used 4 axle low loader for sale malaysia have also considered it in advance.

7. Lay the bottom plate

That is, the 40 feet low bed trailer of the bottom plate is fully welded on the frame. There is nothing to say at this step.

8. Frosted and painted

Frosting is the previous step of spray painting. Some manufacturers without shot blasting workshops will blow and polish the welding slag with high pressure gas at this stage.

Spray paint is usually sprayed in a well-ventilated shed. If you want to spray beautifully, you must first look at the coating and the technology of the technicians, but TITAN 40 feet low bed trailer will spray very beautifully. Basically, you don’t have to worry about this. We will be very attentive!

10.How does a low loader work?

Low Loader Trailers are widely used, mainly for medium and long-distance freight transportation. Its frame is a beam-through structure, and the longitudinal beam adopts a straight and live gooseneck type. The height of the webs ranges from 400mm to 550mm, the longitudinal beams are welded by automatic submerged arc welding, the frame is shot blasted, and the beam penetrates the longitudinal beams and welds the whole.

Low Loader Trailers use high-strength international steel material, the vehicle has a lightweight, and guarantees its anti-torsion, anti-vibration, anti-bump ability, and meets different load bearing capacity.

Composed of tandem dry plate spring and suspension support, the structure is reasonable, with strong rigidity and strength, used to support the load and buffer the impact.
