What is semi-trailer?


Semi-trailer is a trailer whose axles is placed behind the center of gravity of the vehicle (when the vehicle is evenly loaded) and is equipped with a coupling device (king pin) that can transmit horizontal and vertical forces to the tractor. Part of the total load of the trailer is borne by the tractor.

 

Features: without power in itself, it carries the goods with the tractor, and driven by the tractor. 

Application: carrying people or goods, and other special purposes.

 

Characteristics and uses of various semi-trailers

 

Usually, semi-trailers can be classified into fence semi-trailers, flatbed semi-trailers, lowbed semi-trailers, warehouse grid semi trailers, van semi trailers, container semi trailers, dump semi trailers, oil tank semi trailers, bulk cement semi trailers and car transportation semi trailers and so on.

3) The frame is of cross-beam structure, and the longitudinal beam adopts straight type or gooseneck type. The web height is from 400mmm to 500mm, the longitudinal beam is welded by automatic submerged arc welding, the frame is shot blasted, and the transverse beam penetrates into the longitudinal beam and is welded as a whole.

 

4) Suspension system: new suspension system is adopted, with high strength and strong impact resistance. The load of each axle is balanced, and the angle of the system pull rod is reasonably designed. In the process of frequent bumps, it can reduce the friction and slip distance between the tire and the ground and effectively reduce the tire wear. At the same time, the pull rod can be adjusted to adjust the wheelbase and effectively avoid the phenomenon of partial running in and gnawing of the tire.

 

5. Van semi-trailer
