Working with customers advising and demonstrating the use of specialist materials.
The Task Set
To help find a solution to weight to strength ratio for lorry loader.
With the ever-increasing demand for larger capacity lorry mounted cranes there inevitably becomes a compromise with chassis strength and adequate payloads.
Pegasus profiles were approached and consulted on how chassis strength and payload could be increased through product design and specialist materials.
Pegasus Profiles are part of the SSAB Swedish Steel Wear Part Member Network, so stock a wide range of SSAB specialist Materials and specialist technical backup from SSAB.
Working with the customer and SSAB, we were able to offer a redesign of the chassis member using SSAB Strenx 700, thus allowing the chassis members to be manufactured from thinner material but with added tensile strength.
The laser cut and folded sections proved to be successful, achieving the projected aim. Pegasus Profiles now work with the customer on other specialist projects.
