VSE - The Intelligent Electro-Hydraulic Trailer Steering
IMS Limited is the sole UK & Ireland distributor for VSE – leading manufacturer of intelligent steering systems for trailers.
With the VSE system, operators have easy access to urban locations previously unreachable with conventional trailers. In many instances, a VSE-equipped trailer can replace rigid prime movers and ‘urban trailers’, which means fewer trucks in cities creating less noise and environmental impact. Logistics companies benefit through greater utilisation and increased load volume.
The VSE steering system allows use of a 13.6 metre trailer in any operation where a 12.6 metre urban trailer is normally used, and even a number of occasions where 10.5 metre urban trailers would typically be deployed. The system doesn’t rely on turntables at the front or the rear, so weight is significantly reduced as are the operating costs normally associated with the maintenance of turntables.
This innovative and highly configurable steering system is available from IMS for one to three steered axles and axle loads of 8 up to 12 T. It can be fitted to trailers with 17.5”, 19.5” and 22.5” rims; both single and double tyres.
