This vehicle is used to transport plates from our hot rolling mill to the plate finishing center, where they are heat treated, stretched, sawn and packaged. It has been designed specially to ensure that the plates are not subjected to the effects of weather during transport.
When it’s fully loaded, the vehicle can weigh as much as 120 tons. Despite having eight computer-supported independent dual wheels, it takes a good deal of skill to control the 17.5 m long and 4.6 m wide vehicle. Ground markings are provided for narrow passages such as gateways – the markings are captured on camera and the transporter is moved along them
