When switching from an 8 mm thick HARDOX 450 sheet to a 7 mm thick HARDOX 500 Tuf sheet, as the base material of the body, it becomes possible to reduce the weight by 12.5 %, and extend the service life of the body by 15%. Soon, the option of Hardox 500 Tuf wear-resistant steel will be available when ordering Grunwald tipper superstructures for the main element – the body base (floor). Further, the possibility of using the new material in the construction of the model range of semitrailers will be considered.
With each new technology or material, Grunwald engineers and technologists strive to implement new solutions related to them. These ideas and innovative designs create an opportunity for Grunwald customers to benefit further.
