Faymonville launches the ModulMAX AP-M Modular Trailer

The new ModulMAX AP-M is a modular trailer that combines the supporting assist mode with the independent self-propelled mode. The motorized axles of the modules can be engaged and disengaged at any speed up to 40 km/h. This is a unique feature on the market.

Heavy haul projects reach ever more impressive dimensions. Transporting loads weighing hundreds or even thousands of tons require safe, reliable and powerful modular systems. Faymonville constantly pioneer the implementation of new transport technologies, developing unique and cost-effective solutions in a fast changing world. The ModulMAX AP-M is by far the strongest available on the market with up to 1,270 kN of traction force from one Powerpack Unit.

The motorized axles of the modules can be engaged and disengaged at any speed with a maximum of 40 km/h. This unique feature in combination with the high traction gives the operator an important advantage as there is no need to stop the convoy to engage or disengage. Additionally, all the motorized axles have powerful and above all homologated brakes.

With up to 10 driven axles in the High-Torque-version the ModulMAX AP-M is at the top of any system.

The modules build up on a dual-link patented suspension system offering a better spread of the forces and bending moments. The stroke of 650 mm and 45 tons payload capacity per axle line highlight the strengths.

The ModulMAX AP-M offers seamless interoperability and can be combined with conventional 3,000 mm wide Faymonville ModulMAX modules and other brands. Users can couple it also with common equipment such as lowbeds, spacers, drawbars etc. The Power Pack Unit used for this mechanically steered module is identical with the one used with the electronically steered vehicles.

There are three different versions depending on the application fields of the operator:

Endurance: For on-road long distance heavy-duty transports where it is important to assist the tractors with a constant pulling force at high speed with a maximum of 40 km/h.

Standard: For universal heavy-duty transports and an approximate 20/80 ratio between on-road and in-site missions. This version allows a perfect combination between pulling force and working speed.

High Torque: For heavy-duty transport missions when it is necessary to get a high pulling force and an assist speed of 15km/h is sufficient.
