Irish Ride & Handling specialist Timoney will use the bauma exhibition to highlight the safety, productivity and comfort benefits of Ride & Handling in construction equipment.
With a resume that includes 50 years of designing, building and consulting on high-performing Ride & Handling systems for heavy duty vehicles, the team from Timoney comes to Munich championing the many benefits of getting construction equipment Ride & Handling right.
Paris-Dakar to Munich
From Navan, County Meath, the proudly Irish company is a pioneer in heavy-duty suspension systems and has made its reputation in the ultra-demanding world of defence and emergency equipment. It even designed the suspension for a truck competitor in the ultra-gruelling Paris-Dakar rally. With this as a foundation, Timoney’s construction and mining Driveline Product solutions for articulated dump trucks are proving to be new benchmarks for low-wear, high-productivity and operator comfort.
Timoney Team at bauma
Led by CEO José Cuadrado, who has 20 years of experience working for construction equipment OEMs, the Timoney team will be meeting with leading construction OEMs at bauma, highlighting the benefits of collaboration at early stages of product design. By understanding the complex interrelationship between vehicle sub-systems, Timoney can offer a range of Ride & Handling engineering services to help OEMs understand the Ride & Handling problem through simulation and analysis.
Incorporating Timoney’s Ride & Handling Service at an early stage of the design process helps with better decision making before committing to hardware, giving designers the opportunity to make changes without drastically affecting costs. Timoney can help ensure best in class Ride & Handling is designed in from the start. This is crucial, as up to 80% of product development costs are defined by decisions made early in the design process.
Timoney’s consultancy services to OEMs is the fastest way to achieve the perfect ride and handling of prototype machines. A recent success story is the collaboration between Timoney and leading articulated hauler maker Rokbak on the development of the 28 tonne RA30 hauler.
In fact, Timoney is something of an ADT specialist. The company has patented its own articulated hauler axle, which is the market’s only fully independent suspension system available for ADTs. The suspension design dramatically reduces whole body vibrations at source, resulting in improved safety, productivity and reliability.
Timoney’s business model and technology transfer experience allows product ownership to be transferred to the client OEM.
The company is also leading the development for ride and handling systems for heavy duty electric and autonomous vehicles in the construction and mining industry.
When it comes to heavy duty Ride & Handling systems, the Timoney team in Munich are bauma’s ultimate smooth talkers.
