June 2018 – Schmitz Cargobull will once again be showcasing a wide array of innovations at the IAA Commercial Vehicles Show 2018. Schmitz Cargobull’s product and service experts have been working hard for the past two years. Countless new trailer developments and service innovations have been created for the benefit of the customer with the aim of reducing the total cost of ownership. All of the innovations have been developed according to the strictest standards of quality and tested in a practical setting.
S.KO box semi-trailer product line
S.KO COOL reefer semi-trailer
Schmitz Cargobull will present the S.KO COOL reefer semi-trailer in a new form at this year’s IAA Commercial Vehicles Show. With the transport solution consisting of the enhanced refrigerated box body, the new S.CU cooling unit and the telematics system, transport companies receive an optimised complete package for refrigerated logistics. Visually it's easy to see that a new S.KO COOL generation is about to make its début. It has been developed further, tidied up and given a distinctive new look. The front section has had a complete face lift. The protected area of the bulkhead has been extended further upwards, so as to avoid damage during coupling. Furthermore, the insulation capacity of the bulkhead has been increased further through the optimisation of many details. The new side guard is the most telling sign that another generational change has taken place.
New Schmitz Cargobull S.CU transport refrigeration unit
Schmitz Cargobull has further developed its in-house refrigeration unit and equipped it with the latest common rail diesel motor. The new refrigeration unit generation offers the same high cooling performance and precise temperature management, but uses up to 10% less fuel.
All Schmitz Cargobull refrigeration units comply with the Stage V emission standard, which comes into force in January 2019.
Through the optimum interface design of the new refrigeration unit and improved air circulation, operators can achieve even more consistent temperature distribution in the cargo area. The display has been redesigned to improve its user-friendliness, while the large digits make it easier to read. As an alternative to the display, all functions of the S.CU refrigeration unit and telematics system can be controlled via a smartphone.
S.CS curtainsider product line
The S.CS curtainsider semi-trailer with POWER CURTAIN
The S.CS curtainsider with POWER CURTAIN from Schmitz Cargobull is designed to meet demands for increased transport efficiency and effective time management. The certified structural rigidity according to DIN EN 12642 Code XL is achieved without support laths thanks to aramid belts and steel wire integrated into the tarpaulin. The advantage of this lies in quicker loading and unloading without time-consuming handling to secure the load. This enables the driver to continue their run more rapidly and further optimise the transport process. At the same time, the POWER CURTAIN offers high theft protection. The POWER CURTAIN also offers high protection against theft.
S.CS MEGA curtainsider semi-trailer minus 300 kg
Thanks to the new rolled chassis, the weight-optimised design of the S.CS curtainsider semi-trailer is now a whole 300 kg lighter, while the standard of robustness and quality has remained the same. To the delight of freight carriers, the basic equipment package for the semi-trailer has an unladen weight of just 6,290 kg.
S.CS UNIVERSAL curtainsider semi-trailer below 6 t
The S.CS UNIVERSAL curtainsider semi-trailer also comes in a leaner version. The Schmitz Cargobull all-rounder is already operational with an unladen weight of a little less than 6 t. Of course, the trailer possesses the DIN EN 12642 Code XL certificate and is also equipped with the new design of side guard.
M.CS truck curtainsider and Z.CS central axle curtainsider
The Schmitz Cargobull high-volume trucks with drawbar trailers have also seen a generational change. The M.CS truck curtainsider and the Z.CS central axle curtainsider are now newly available in the MEGA version, with the total weight reduced by 500 kg. The trimmed-down high-volume truck and drawbar trailer in the MEGA version now offers greater payload for optimum and flexible transport solutions.
S.KI tipper semi-trailer product line
S.KI thermal tipper trailer with rounded steel body and aluminium box body
With a particular emphasis on weight reduction, Schmitz Cargobull presents enhanced thermal insulation for the rounded steel body. To minimise payload loss, the thermal insulation of the S.KI SR rounded steel tipper body has been optimised again for 2018. The innovative insulation material has a low additional weight of approximately 310 kg, offering a robust and payload-optimised transport solution. Alongside the rounded steel body, the aluminium box body is also available with full insulation. This weight-optimised transport solution also complies with the required insulation standards while providing for a high payload thanks to its unladen weight of only 5.1 t. Because the body's external dimensions do not change significantly as a result, the tipper trailer retains its low centre of gravity and can be combined with any of the trough covering options from the standard range.
S.KI VOLUME tipper trailer with an aluminium box body
The S.KI VOLUME AK tipper semi-trailer has a loading height which, although it is 160 mm lower, still retains the same body volume and an unladen weight which has been reduced by up to 150 kg. The tipper trailer will also be available with the Schmitz Cargobull axle from September 2018 onwards
Value added services product line
Schmitz Cargobull Parts & Services
Schmitz Cargobull Parts & Services has invested in new digital systems for local service and workshop training. Workshops around the world will be able to connect with Schmitz Cargobull specialists using remote maintenance applications, receiving instructions and help online during the repair process. This drastically reduces the time needed for troubleshooting and keeps downtime to a minimum. For more complicated repairs, virtual-reality-based training sequences will be used to enhance training and development for workshop engineers.
