Finished an open roof swap body project for a client in Norway. The client wanted a container with 4500 kg kerb mass for carrying bulk material. Additionally, a cordless drill powered hydro system that opens and closes the roof.
The key issue with the project was finding a solution that ensures the kerb mass and measurement requirements. Meeting the last requirement was a challenge because during the road test, the bulk material affected the container sides with more force than expected due to rattling, causing more deformation than allowed. Therefore, we had to change the construction of the side section of the container and added some fortifying boards. The project illustrated the need for proper product testing and tested our ability to find an operative solution.
