The W1MV body has been designed to work in the most difficult operating conditions in mines. It is used to transport the excavated material from the mining site to the crusher, it can successfully replace a traditional dump truck after proper preparation of the transport road. At Bauma, it will be presented on a Scania 8×4 chassis.
During the transport of high fraction material, it is exposed to constant wear. For the production of the W1MV body, a new generation of wear-resistant steel was used – Hardox 500 Tuf. Modern steel on the floor and sides ensures maximum abrasion resistance of the body and extends the service life of the equipment when working in the mine. The Hardox 500 Tuf wear-resistant steel is the newest product in the Hardox family offering strength, extreme hardness and guaranteed toughness in one and the same wear plate. Hardox 500 Tuf combines the best properties of Hardox 450 and Hardox 500. The result is a wear-resistant steel that has no competition on the market.
The large roof has been installed in such a way as to guarantee the protection of the top profile of the front wall against elements falling from above during loading.
The raised floor in the rear part of the body prevents the load from falling out when driving on slopes. The transported material is additionally secured by the rear wall opened with ropes.
Safe maneuvering and driving a large vehicle is ensured by a rear-mounted Brigade Electronics reversing camera. The video surveillance system helps the driver see blind spots when reversing by sending a live signal to the in-cab monitor showing everything in the camera’s field of view, including people and obstacles.
The tipper has been also equipped with a heavy-duty HYVA FC hydraulic cylinder, which ensures a short unloading time. This is extremely important for multiple unloading cycles.
The HYVA SMART monitoring system based on cloud operation increases efficiency and safety by providing drivers with real-time data, including such information as truck and unloading data, payload, unsafe unloading position alerts, maintenance alerts and statistics with the number of loading and tipping cycles.
The body exchangeable system enables any configuration of the truck’s body (tipping body, concrete mixer, other body) according to current needs, increasing the functionality of the vehicle throughout the year. The system includes a truck chassis with a KH-KIPPER body and a concrete mixer on supporting legs. The system was designed mainly for small concrete plants that do not have a large machine park, but want to carry out various transport tasks. The solution allows such companies to better adapt to the new realities of disrupted supply chains because it is enough to have only one chassis with two exchangeable bodies on supporting legs. The drum of the concrete mixer allows the transport of liquid concrete, and the tipper body – the transport of loose materials or pallets. Converting a tipping body to a concrete mixer with this solution is relatively simple, requires only 1-2 people and takes several minutes.
The body presented at the KH-KIPPER stand is a three-way W3H construction with an underfloor Nummi cylinder on the MAN 8×4 chassis and it is equipped with a left hydraulic sidewall. The latest modernization allows the body to be lifted to the side with the hydraulic sidewall fully open which remains in a fixed position while the body is moving. The new solution makes it possible to unload the material more precisely near the vehicle and additionally protects the wheels of the vehicle against heaping them with discharged material. This option is often used when repairing road infrastructure and significantly increases the functionality of the vehicle.
