Wirtschaftswoche names TII Group as world market leader
At the end of 2018, renowned German business magazine WirtschaftsWoche (Handelsblatt Media Group) published a special issue "Germany's World Market Leader 2018" which was dedicated to companies that win over across all business and industrial sectors with cutting-edge technologies and outstanding quality of their products and services. The Transporter Industry International (TII) Group with its groundbreaking heavy-duty and special purpose vehicles is also one of the select group of the so-called Champions League of the German economy.
New transport solutions for wind energy: more efficient and future-proof
For operators of wind turbines, the TII Group offers a range of efficient, future-proof transport solutions. The focus is on the wind turbine blade adapter with a positioning angle of 70°. This is now in the third generation with an improved payload moment of up to 610 metre tonnes. The specialist in heavy-duty transporters has thus taken into account the development of more and more powerful wind turbines. The TII Group offers a new transport system as a series solution for particularly long wind blades. Maximum manoeuvrability, weight-reduced and fit for the future. With this combination, blades of over 80 metres long can be safely transported. The technical solution for accommodating the wind blade functions according to the "plug and play" principle and is unique on the market. Start of Sales will be at bauma.
The Indian Tiiger on the advance
Tiiger is one of the four vehicle brands of the TII Group and serves the Indian market as well as countries in Africa and Southeast Asia. Since its subsidiary´s launch in 2015, TII's production and sales facility has constantly continued to expand further ever since. With the newly developed Tiiger SD modular heavy-duty transporter, the company will be presenting at the bauma a cost-efficient vehicle for the transport of loads weighing up to 240 tonnes for the first time.
EuroCompact: road transport made simple
At bauma, semi-modular compact vehicles for road transport of loads from approx. 30 to 115 tonnes are playing a central role. The EuroCompact is a light and compact low-bed trailer which is suitable for a wide range of transport assignments due to its combination possibilities. Among other things, it can be used to transport construction machinery, transformers or plant components.
Also being showcased at the bauma is the U5 version whereby the centre distance has been optimised to 1,500 mm. As a result, this makes the vehicle ideally suited particularly for those times when confronted with problematic infrastructure and approval procedures.
International transport specialists are facing new challenges such as increasingly stringent road traffic licensing regulations. With the new EuroCompact U5 from Scheuerle, the modern transport company can master these challenges with ease. The U5 model facilitates significantly easier approval procedures for transportation assignments.
The unmatched dead weight/payload ratio and the most compact design in this segment offer heavy-duty specialists competitive and cost advantages. Low wear, a deck with a particularly low loading height and excellent manoeuvrability through optimised steering and large steering angle round off the product and make it an indispensable component of the construction industry.
The EuroCompact can easily be extended for accommodating a wide range of transport tasks and load requirements with the Smart Axle dolly.
Thanks to the intelligent design of the coupling points, the EuroCompact has more deck length/loading length in proportion to the combination length than is usually the case in the market. The low dead weight with a simultaneous high payload makes the compact road vehicle efficient and cost-effective. This means fewer axles with the same payload compared to the competition.
SPMT und SPMT Light: self-propelled, modular, flexible
The TII Group is showcasing its SPMT and SPMT Light success stories at the bauma with a live show. The modular, self-propelled vehicles can handle every conceivable transport task, from light goods to heavy-load transport of payloads up to 17,000 tonnes. The modular design principle of the SPMT product family offers maximum possibilities for use in the construction sector, oil and gas industry as well as shipbuilding and plant construction. Individual modular transporters can be coupled together as required. They can be mechanically coupled or arranged in a loose coupling mode. Through the container dimensions, a single 4-axle vehicle ensures optimum flexibility also for smaller transport assignments, for example, in production halls. The SPMT Light is also available with electric drive. With the all-electric vehicle, the TII Group has set new standards in the field of e-mobility for heavy-duty transport vehicles and offers one of the most universal and high-performance systems for indoor and outdoor use. With an 86 tonne payload, the vehicle is driven emission-free and noiselessly - almost a third more than comparable competitor systems.
TII customer service – even more efficient
The TII Group has re-organized its service activities and has created even more proximity to the customer. Specially trained technicians around the world are responsible for the maintenance, repair, spare parts procurement and retrofit of the special and heavy duty vehicles of the TII brands Scheuerle, Nicolas and Kamag. Michael Buhl, Head of Global TII Service Operations is himself certain: "Service makes the difference. For us, service excellence means that the operational capability and durability of the vehicles comes first". With customer training and comprehensive advice, the TII Service also optimally prepares the employees of its customers for correct vehicle operation, maintenance and transport planning.
Four strong brands: Scheuerle, Kamag, Nicolas and Tiiger
The TII-Group consists of four brands – Scheuerle, Kamag, Nicolas and Tiiger. The global specialist in the transport of goods of up to more than 17,000 tonnes is introducing an integrated and optimised production concept in 2019 for its three traditional European brands Scheuerle, Kamag and Nicolas. Tiiger, the fourth brand in the product portfolio, serves the Indian market as well as countries in Africa and South-East Asia.
