Design Principles of In-Plant Trailers
A properly designed in-plant trailer can offer greater speed, flexibility, and lower maintenance costs but knowing where to begin is not so obvious. This white paper provides a good overview of the major aspects of designing trailers for the factory floor. The white paper covers design load factors, structural considerations, trailability, ergonomics, running gear and much more. For example, did you know there is a mathematical interdependency between trailer length, width, aisle width requirements, and number of trailers? This white paper features a an easy to read chart applying the formula with common trailers sizes. Trailer steering mechanisms &the good, bad, and the ugly - are also discussed with good illustrations.
