New lines from Cometto
By Euan Youdale22 August 2011
Cometto is producing two new product lines to be introduced in 2011. The first will be the 50 tonne MSPE-evo self-propelled transporter with electronic steering, which the company has already tested. It is claimed to have the best performance in capacity and working speed on the market in its class.
The second product is the MS-DL trailer, designed with a light, yet comparatively high capacity and stable dual-lane operated trailer to support requirements in the USA and Canadian markets."Both of these products will offer huge benefits to North American and other worldwide companies who are looking for quality trailers with realistic pricing and local technical support and parts," said a company spokesman.
The manufacturer has also upgraded its Cometto Software for Modular Trailers (COSMO). The 3D graphics and user-friendly interface maximise the potential of the company's 1MS, MSPM self-propelled and the MSPE electronic-steer trailers, it said.
Load placement, hydraulic configuration, stability, turning radius, ground pressure and chassis flexion can all be calculated, reconfigured and then printed, allowing for every load to be engineered.
In addition, Cometto has a new global fleet management system, named Telemakhos. Equipment owners can monitor vehicles worldwide using satellite communication, allowing Cometto to troubleshoot all onboard systems in real-time, check convoy configuration in remote mode and provide software upgrades in the field. The portable unit is usable with no additional power source.
