With VSE electronic steering systems any yard is accessible with a long tank trailer. You may be currently using short trailers to reach certain yards or wasting a lot of time spent manoeuvring at a customer’s location. The electronic steering system from VSE enables you to work more efficiently with a long tank trailer. After all, you reach hard-to-reach loading and unloading points quickly and easily.Contact
The precise steering and wireless remote control enable you to work more efficiently. The steering enables a longer trailer with a tank – with at least 500 kg extra capacity – to quickly and easily reach hard-to-reach loading and unloading points.
95% of the time a steered trailer can be used in places where a shorter trailer, with less load capacity, was previously required. The risk of damage is reduced because far less manoeuvring is required, on a farm for example.
Because other systems use turntables and rods, they require a lot of maintenance to continue to work well. This means all the headaches of many lubrication points and replacement of worn turntables. VSE Steering is an electrohydraulic steering system. Therefore, there is almost no wear of any kind.
As a result, maintenance costs are extremely low, enabling you to save up to 65%!
In mechanical steering systems the movement of the truck must provide the energy. During a turn the two axles are ‘pulled’ to the correct steering angle by the truck. This creates a lot of resistance and therefore has a negative impact on fuel consumption.
The energy source required for the VSE steering is mounted on the trailer. The truck moves in a bend without any extra resistance.
Because there are few mechanical parts there is much less chance of play developing, so VSE Steering continues to work more precisely over the long term. This also results in better fuel efficiency. Total fuel savings can reach up to €8,000!
Traditional systems use rigid axles on a turntable. Because a rigid axle on a turntable turns at an angle to the trailer during a turn, the wheels move closer together from side to side. In other words, the track width is reduced in a bend, causing the trailer to lose stability. The wheels of an Ackermann-steered axle steer independently, so there is no reduction of track width and the trailer remains more stable.
VSE steering systems are disabled at high speed: the steering is gradually reduced above 25 km/h, and the axles are rigid above 55 km/h. This ensures optimum safety and stability.
