Faymonville to Show Many New Products at Bauma

April 5, 2019 - Heavy-haul trailer and modular transporter manufacturer Faymonville, Weiswampach, Luxembourg, will present 13 exhibits booth FN 829 at the Bauma trade show in Munich, Germany, April 8-14, 2019.  

"We bring precisely those transport solutions onto the market that really help the user with his special transport tasks. And we do that both for the small payload range and for the heaviest off-road segment," says product manager Rainer Noe.

Blademax Trailer
Handles Largest Blades

One of the products Faymonville will highlight at Bauma is its new Blademax transport solution for the new generation of wind turbine blades. The rotor blade adapter’s 650-ton-meter (4701452-lb.-ft.) capacity lets it move the latest mega wind turbine blades safely and efficiently in wooded or built-up areas, in tight hairpin bends, or in mountainous regions. 

The adapter can tilt a rotor blade up to almost 90°, swivel and rotate it 360° around the blade’s axis. The adapter can be mounted on a self-propelled vehicle or between modular axle lines.  

The patented Roto-Translation is unique. Thanks to this sophisticated levering device, the center of gravity remains considerably more stable than with conventional devices when the blade is moved from horizontal to vertical. 

Greater handling stability is also guaranteed with the patented stability control system. The interaction of electronics, hydraulics, and visualization increases safety as the center of gravity shifts when moving the blades. Blademax works without counterweights that weigh several tonnes. 


DualMax Trailer for North America

Another of the many Faymonville products on display will be the Dualmax trailer that can be widened even under load. 

The Dualmax is designed for the special requirements of heavy-load transport in North America. Its special feature is that it can be widened in various steps from 14' (4.27 m) to 20' (6.1 m) even when loaded. 

Faymonville has named that unique, patented principle as “lift&shift.”  

"Such a system is used when the load distribution has to be adjusted for infrastructural reasons, for example when negotiating bridges or the like," says Rainer Noe. 

The steering system does not need to be modified during Dualmax widening. Everything remains fixed. The Bauma exhibit clearly illustrates this breakthrough “lift & shift” principle at close range.
