Edbro’s technical centre for on-vehicle hydraulic systems has been designed to help fleet managers, maintenance managers, body builders and any other industry professionals who use Edbro tipping gear. On it, visitors can quickly and easily access information about spare parts, cylinder specifications, and the services and support offered by Edbro.
The technical centre is arranged as a number of easy to navigate pages so that it is as straightforward as possible to use, with technical information and contact details to the fore. Specifications, general assembly drawings and other key information is available and downloadable. Operators’ manuals, installation guides, servicing instructions, spare part numbers and other documentation is all available and laid out so that it is easy to find and cross reference with other information.
The centre is incorporated into the website of Edbro’s parent company, JOST, meaning there is also easy access to background and other related information.
“The idea is that the site is a like having an expert in your office,” explained Daniel Harding, Technical Manager for Edbro. “Registered users are able to access spare parts information and technical drawings for their tipping gear. It complements our telephone support service, making it easier for our customers and partners to find the information they require.”
Edbro makes a wide range of hydraulic solutions for tipper trucks, refuse lorries and other working vehicles, including front end, underbody and ejector cylinders, waste compactor equipment and customised hydraulic kit solutions. The design of all of these have been optimised using state of the art 3D modelling and finite element analysis techniques.
Advanced manufacturing techniques such as laser welding ensure quality for best performance, longevity and ease of maintenance. The result is lightweight yet robust cylinders with ‘Fit and Forget’ levels of reliability and safety designed into them.
“We understand that running a fleet of hard working specialist vehicles is demanding and multi-faceted,” said Harding. “Together with our partners we aim to offer the best possible service and give after-sales peace of mind. The Technical Centre is an extension of this.”
