Refitted Truck of Advanced Composites First Emerged
The new product release conference on refitted truck of advanced composites was staged in Baotou International Convention and Exhibition Center on November 6th, 2012.
As is revealed in the conference, the lightweight composites truck, backed by Jiuyuan government, was a fruit of cooperation and joint development between Baotou Deyi, Bluestar Group and Sinoma Science and Technology. It signified a groundbreaking with respect to lightweight of truck body. Under the precondition of guaranteeing truck strength and safety, the lightweight project is intended to decrease curb weight, increase payload, and reduce energy consumption and pollutants emission like carbon dioxide, while curbing overload activities, and more importantly, assuring traffic safety. The new truck achieved the requirements of environmental protection, safety and economy.
The dump truck with 8.6 meters long weighs 4.8 tons. It is a 29% ton reduction in the original metal dumper of 6.8 tons.
As is generally known, China witnessed respectively a 1 million truck production and sales volume in 2011. It is estimated that the 2013 heavy truck market will absorb 0.95-1 million trucks and the number is expected to reach 3 million in 2030. It is strongly believed that a promising future of composites truck market is ahead of us.
