Multi-purpose vehicle in plant engineering – SCHEUERLE SPMT Light

FAMET S.A. produces plant components and generators at six facilities in Poland – four SPMT Light vehicles from SCHEUERLE (TII Group) complete with integrated drive units now provide valuable support at the plant in Kędzierzyn-Koźle. Two 2-axle modules, each with a 85-tonne payload, and two 4-axle modules with a 176-tonne payload respectively ensure efficient and very safe handling of components during transportation operations.

SPMTs from the TII Group form by far the largest fleet of self-propelled modular vehicles with hydraulic pendulum axles worldwide. With the addition of the SPMT Light, the Company Group has rounded off the bottom end of the product range – with resounding success. In the meantime, steel girders, rescue heads are in the oil industry or bridge prefabricated components are moved on the SCHEUERLE SPMT Light, and the emission-free, electrically driven model which was presented at bauma 2016 has also made a convincing case. For the operators, all steering programs featured in the classic SPMT vehicle are likewise available. Through the integrated drive unit, the external Power Pack Unit is no longer required – a clear advantage in terms of manoeuvrability and accessibility. The SPMT Light is available with either solid polyfill tires or pneumatic tires while lateral cross-coupling elements and spacers allow easy coupling when forming vehicle groups.

SPMTs of the TII Group

In the second half of the 20th century, a trend began that would forever change the entire transportation industry. With the first self-propelled transport modules used in shipbuilding and the SPMT (Self-Propelled Modular Transporter) developed by SCHEUERLE in the late nineteen-seventies and early nineteen-eighties, the potential payloads suddenly increased and which today are basically unlimited. Today, seventy per cent of all transports over 3,000 tonnes and ninety per cent of all transports over 5,000 tonnes are performed on modular, self-propelled vehicles from the TII Group. Thus, modular manufacturing has gained a foothold in the oil and gas industry, shipbuilding and many other sectors. Unit weights of 15,000 tonnes – world record – have already been transported with SPMTs from the TII Group.
