Hellgrens Lastvagnsservice AB produces trailers for use with heavy vehicles such as tractor-trailers. The challenge was to produce trailers that can carry the weight load of the cargo they are designed to transport while reducing overall bodyweight.
Hellgrens Lastvagnsservice AB choice was SolidWorks Professional and SolidWorks Simulation. The company has managed to reduce the weight of a standard trailer by a ton, increase the precision of design work, and also significantly reduce the amount of scrap from production, reducing the environmental impact.
By using SolidWorks Simulation for FEM analysis, they ensure that the welded plate structures can carry the weight load of the cargo they are designed to transport.
