Auto components India - - SPECIAL REPORT -

Show­cas­ing its com­mit­ment to re­tain its high mar­ket share of over 50% in the tip­per seg­ment, Tata Mo­tors show­cased 6 prod­ucts. Analysing the pain ar­eas typ­i­cal to tip­per cus­tomers and look­ing at in­creased prod­uct us­age in the con­struc­tion seg­ment, Tata Mo­tors show­cased PRIMA LX 2525 K 16 CuM box tip­per with Ultimaax sus­pen­sion. De­vel­oped in col­lab­o­ra­tion with its JV part­ner Hen­drick­son Inc., the Ultimaax sus­pen­sion is a com­bi­na­tion of rub­ber and metal that ad­justs ac­cord­ing to the laden or un­laden weight of the ve­hi­cle.

Sup­ported by rub­ber bushes in front and rear, Ultimaax elim­i­nates the need for pe­ri­odic lu­bri­ca­tion as re­quired by metal bush­ings in the con­ven­tional sus­pen­sion, thus reducing road shocks and driver fa­tigue. A K Jin­dal, Head, Elec­tric Ve­hi­cles & De­fence Ve­hi­cles, Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cle En­gi­neer­ing, Tata Mo­tors, said “Due to low weight of the sys­tem, Ultimaax sus­pen­sion sys­tem will of­fer higher pay­load of up to 250kgs over stan­dard bo­gie sus­pen­sion.”

Ex­pect­ing a ram­pant shift in the tip­per seg­ment, Tata Mo­tors also show­cased a 37-tonne haulage tip­per, and 49-tonne Signa tip­per with 14 Cu.m. body. It boasts of two-side tip­pers which can be op­er­ated ei­ther one side or opposite di­rec­tion at the same time. Tata Mo­tors also dis­played the up­graded ver­sions of its Prima en­gines, tak­ing base power of Prima to 250hp to 300hp.
