Price and deliv­ery time improve­ments

Pro­tect garbage cans form wear and tear

They are the busy machines that emp­ty the garbage from our garbage cans at least once a week: waste dis­pos­al vehi­cles!

ZÖLLER-KIPPER GmbH from Mainz is Europe‘s largest man­u­fac­tur­er of hydraulic lift and tip­ping vehi­cles for waste emp­ty­ing and col­lec­tion. Zöller turned to its sup­pli­er of many years, Jäger Gum­mi und Kun­st­stoff GmbH with which they joint­ly devel­oped some of the arti­cles that are installed in the so-called „lifter“.

A lifter is the area respon­si­ble for lift­ing and emp­ty­ing the garbage cans — usu­al­ly at the rear of a garbage truck. This time Zöller need­ed a com­po­nent that would pro­vide the refuse col­lec­tion vehi­cles with spe­cial pro­tec­tion.

This is because when the waste con­tain­er was lift­ed to the top and emp­tied in the waste dis­pos­al vehi­cle, it struck the top of the vehicle‘s stop, which could not absorb the impact. For this rea­son, Zöller need­ed a pro­tec­tive jack­et for the steel shafts used in the process.

Solu­tion

Robust, cost-effec­tive impact roller for waste dis­pos­al vehi­cles

The Jäger engi­neers thought ahead and pro­duced an EPDM pro­file of iden­ti­cal con­struc­tion. Thanks to its good resis­tance to weath­er­ing, EPDM is par­tic­u­lar­ly suit­able for out­door appli­ca­tions, such as in waste dis­pos­al vehi­cles. In addi­tion, the elas­tic mate­r­i­al is an inex­pen­sive yet durable mate­r­i­al. The unit price could also be reduced, due to the of the EPDM component’s fast extru­sion process. The new solu­tion went into series pro­duc­tion after it had been thor­ough­ly test­ed and approved in joint prac­ti­cal tests at the customer‘s site.
