“We develop our innovative products as an integrated system, almost completely in parallel,” explains Wolfgang Heiss, purchasing manager for MEILLER. “This guarantees an optimum match between the vehicle chassis – provided by the OEM – and the superstructure provided by MEILLER. We use the latest techniques to transfer engineering and logistics data to truck manufacturers. This provides the OEM with short response times and distinguishes MEILLER as a competent system supplier.”
ArcelorMittal and MEILLER have worked closely for over 15 years. The tipper maker utilises ArcelorMittal’s advanced high strength steels (AHSS) such as Amstrong® 500MC. These grades are used in a range of applications from the chassis of three-way tippers to the hook-lifts of tipping semi-trailers. Recently MEILLER started using Amstrong® Ultra, an ultra high strength steel (UHSS), and Relia®, a wear-resistant grade.
