10 August 2018

Kässbohrer, with the largest product range in the industry, is nominated for the Trailer Innovation 2019 Award with 3 vehicles that are the results of applying the latest technology to the know-how of product development for 55 countries.

Adhering to its motto “Enginuity”, Kässbohrer is the winner of Trailer Innovation 2017’s ‘’ Safety’’ category and this year is nominated for ‘’Safety’’, ‘’Chassis’’ and ‘’Concept’’ categories.

 Winner of 2017’s ‘’ Safety’’, Kässbohrer is Nominated with 3 Innovations for 2019

Kässbohrer received the nomination for the category "Chassis’’ with K. SHG AVMH Multifunctional Container Chassis with Novel Octagonal Central Frame Design, in the category "Concept’’ with K.SSL Smart Non-Tipping Silo with Autonomous Discharge and in the category ‘’ Safety’’ with K.SSK Safety Tipping Silo with Smart Control. 

Nominee of “Chassis” category, Kässbohrer Multifunctional Container Chassis K.SHG AVMH is the first of its kind novel octagonal central frame design of chassis solving issues that have been common in the industry for over 30 years. The octagonal central frame design of chassis is the first of its kind.  The frame design with telescopic functions solves all torsional issues that lead to permanent damage of the vehicle, most common in the industry. Multifunctional Container Chassis with novel octagonal central frame design also enables all welded components of the chassis to reduce all ancillary tension issues making the entire chassis as tension free as it gets, preventing permanent damage arising from regular operations that are carried out with the industry standard rectangular central frame design. Front, middle and rear extensions and carefully designed locking mechanisms provide the most user-friendly operation, even for the average driver. K.SHG AVMH with innovative octagonal central frame design presents the solution to the issues that have not been overcome over 30 years.

Nominee of "Concept" category, Kässbohrer Smart Non –Tipping Silo K.SSL with autonomous discharge’s innovative feature is the full automatization of the discharge process that enables a safer and more efficient discharge. The fine example of digitalization of trailers, Smart Non- Tipping Silo eliminates the classical discharge methods by patent-pending digital control system compliant with ISO 26262 functional safety standardizations including the software and the hardware. The system is controlled by smart devices via easy to use interface running on Kässbohrer Digital Trailer Control, resulting in safer, more efficient time- saving cost reduced operations. Building towards full predictive maintenance, integrated diagnostics systems can easily detect failures that can occur anywhere on the tank body or running parts of the trailer and it makes early intervention and response to these failures possible. Thanks to that process, safer driving experiences, shorter interference times and longer trailer life will be achieved.

Nominee of “Safety” category Kässbohrer Safety Tipping Silo K.SSK’s innovative character is automating the discharge process with safety parameter controls, improving the safety of the discharge operation of the silo in general. The system assesses the discharge site and conditions for the safest discharge conditions and directs the discharge operations accordingly ensuring the safety of the driver, site personnel, and equipment by reducing the operational risks. The Safety Tipping Silo addresses and controls all conditions that might cause fatal accidents and cases of oversight by drivers hence providing the safest discharge operation in the market.
