Everything ties in and
Flexibility, innovation, function and durability bring value to more:
Bodybuilder – The system is easy to mount and fit. This saves time and trouble. All products and system parts are certified for whole vehicle type approval.
Driver – The system is reliable, with many functions developed with the driver in mind. This makes the working day more convenient and the risk of unwanted downtime is reduced.
Owner/fleet manager – The unrivalled durability, long service life and little need for repair and maintenance make ownership trouble-free. Altogether this results in the lowest total cost of ownership.
However, we are far more than the physical products. Our deep understanding of the transport industry makes it possible for us to develop and create even greater values. By our dedication and presence in the industry, we are also a strong connection between different stakeholders.
The unsurpassed reliability of the VBG system together with the added values are the results of thorough knowledge, engagement – and 65 years of experience.
First and foremost, a coupling must withstand heavy
Also, the coupling should be easy and effortless to use. That’s why we developed a range of functions for the driver’s convenience. Remotely controlled coupling and uncoupling, sensors indicating if the coupling is open or closed and warning for jackknifing are examples of functions that make the driver’s work safer and more effective.
Should an incident occur and the coupling gets damaged, it should be easy to repair. Our wide service network makes spare parts and technical support conveniently available. And, the uncomplicated service and maintenance saves time for the mechanic – and saves costs for the owner.
The drawbeams are effectively corrosion protected with a top-class finish.
VBG drawbars are bolt joint. You can have them adjusted to any length or width. There is also a range of different trailer mountings making it possible for you to have exactly the drawbar you need. This flexibility makes them ideal for the aftermarket.
The drawbars are effectively corrosion protected with a top-class finish.
Having the underrun protection integrated in the coupling system facilitates both for the bodybuilder when mounting, and for the driver’s use.
The sturdy construction, the low weight, the smart solutions and the neat design simplify hinging and sliding. The beam and ends meet our tough demands for increasing traffic safety.
An innovative solution that lubricates and cleans the coupling automatically while driving. By connecting VBG MechMatic to the compressed air system, the coupling is cleaned by an air shock every six hours. Automatic lubrication is carried out every 24 hours. The lubrication involves an oil mist spray, which ensures that the coupling is
always sufficiently lubricated.
When empty, the oil can is easily replaced. It typically lasts a year, which benefits both the environment and your economy. Further, VBG MechMatic reduces the need for service, extends coupling life and improves coupling function – as the coupling is always clean and lubricated. No more discussions between drivers about who is responsible for cleaning and lubricating the couplings!
VBG MechMatic can be retrofitted for all coupling models.
VBG power plugs are basically designed to withstand extremely harsh conditions; humidity, snow, salt and freezing cold temperatures. The plugs are available with 14 or 17 large flat brass terminals. The large contact surfaces withstand oxidation and the terminals are automatically cleaned when connected and disconnected.
The easy handling and the robust design facilitates for the driver and reduces the risk of unwanted standstills.
