Tridec, the global specialist
in trailer steering and special suspension systems at Jost, will present its
latest developments. The focus of these showcases is on additional cost-saving
measures and efficiency improvements for both the trailer manufacturer and the
The proven electronic steering
system EF-S perfectly steers the wheels using sensor data which compares the
angle between truck and trailer with the steered axle’s wheel angle. The axle
steering cylinders now come equipped with a fully integrated sensor, further
simplifying the system’s installation and increasing the long-term reliability.
Jost will showcase autonomous docking on site at the trade fair using a
demonstration truck-trailer equipped with Jost’s smart and automated KKS
connection system, which is integrated alongside Tridec’s EF-S electronic
steering system. The trailer is also equipped with JOST’s new inline kingpin
steered axles, which carry significant weight and energy efficiency advantages
over the competition.
A sneak preview of the all-new and upcoming
wireless Bluetooth remote, used to control Tridec’s manual steering and
hydraulic suspension, alongside many other features, will be on display at the
Tritronic demonstration model. Operators can try out its advanced ergonomics,
large colour touchscreen and much more for themselves.
Tridec’s evergreen product, the LV-O for
double deck trailers which enables highly sustainable distribution transport,
will also be on display. The interest in this product is greater than ever
before, and for good reason! Increasing costs, stricter emissions regulations
and higher demands on the current infrastructure have convinced many operators
to successfully implement the double-deck concept. The independent wheel
suspension puts the space surrounding the wheels to good use, while the
combination with a second loading deck results in a loading capacity increase
of 60 percent, thus noticeably reducing transport movements, related costs and
Jost will showcase all products from Jost,
Rockinger, Tridec and Edbro.
