The innovations introduced in the New R Line, which was launched in June as a guideline for the future of Randon Implementos (Trailers Division), are beginning to take shape in the most modern generation of grain trailers ever produced by the company. Innovations and technologies aligned with the New R concept include modularity, electromobility, embedded intelligence and sustainability, resulting in products prepared for the future. Weight reduction stands out, as it provides, depending on the version, a gain in transported net cargo of more than 800 kilos in the semi-trailer and more than 1,200 kilos in the double trailer.
The new generation of one of the Company's bestsellers brings significant improvements both in standard and optional items, in addition to technologies that translate into transport benefits. One of these benefits is the Ecoplate 3 panel, an evolution from previous applications. Lighter, it combines the durability of plastic and the strength of aluminum, dispensing with the need of painting the panel. It significantly reduces impacts on the environment, and is more resistant to impacts, especially on the inside of the cargo box.
The grain line panels feature extruded aluminum profiles in their structure, are welding-free and lighter to open and close. The new insulating rubbers ensure excellent sealing to the body, resulting in less grain loss to the carrier. In addition, some configurations of the product feature a high-strength aluminum floor and new polymeric discharge gates, which means extra lightness and excellent performance in cargo flow.
Smart composites are already a reality in some of the fastening elements of the product's accessories, such as the wingstay, which is 65% lighter when compared to the previous model made of steel. The New R Grain Trailer features a new lighting system, optimized with a larger number of LEDs in all functions, and is already in compliance with CONTRAN Resolution Nº 667/17, which will come into force as of 2024.
Featuring a modern and sophisticated design, the rear module has a new shape, both in the clearance lights and in the brand application. The renewed bumper design is produced from tubular profile, weld-free on the columns, with an automatic locking system and springs that reduce noise levels. The new bumper also has a geometry that protects the reflective sticker, preventing the degradation of this mandatory safety item.
This product, which has been recently launched, is already prepared to receive the e-Sys electric auxiliary drive axle, developed exclusively by Randon Companies, ensuring savings of up to 20% in fuel, less wear on the components and a significant reduction in waste and gas emissions.
On-board electronics is another novelty of the new grain trailer. Randon Smart is a platform of its own development that uses telemetry and sensing systems to generate data for control and management purposes, combined with the hiring of preventive maintenance service through the Randon Distributor Network.
“The grain trailer is the first product to carry the transformation represented by the New R Line. Once again, when developing this product, the company is at the forefront of the market with solutions that bring benefits in transportation in terms of savings in travel time and resources, increased performance and also in sustainability. The New R Line, now represented on the new grain trailer, is moving towards the future”, says the superintendent director of the Trailers Division of Randon Companies, Sandro Trentin.
The pre-launch of the New R Grain Trailer took place on July 11th and 12th at an event in Serra Gaúcha Its presentation, nationwide, will take place in a series of regional events across the country, later this month.
