2 Tonne Tail Lift

CLIENT: Cullen Engineering

The Tail Lift can lift the 2 tonne load requested, is self-levelling and custom designed to work in a B-Train trailer configuration. 

3D Hub was asked to design a tail lift with 2 tonne SWL, that could mechanically self-level, be designed around an existing trailer design that had no provisions for a tail lift and meet all New Zealand's Health and Safety standards. 

We achieved this by developing a Skeleton model to check movement, fit, clearance and also added loads to verify the geometry mechanism. Once all hard points were defined we started to design the structure. This process reduced our iteration steps and meant we were able to achieve our tight timing for this project.
