Goldhofer MPA Axle TechnologyModular semitrailer system with new user-friendly features.

In view of the keen market response, the new MPA Axle Technology will be the focus of the Goldhofer Aktiengesellschaft stand at the IAA Commercial Vehicle Show in Hanover, where the German world market leader in the field of heavy haulage will also be showing some new and innovative features targeted at ease of operation (Hall 25, C07).

In response to the outstanding demand for this innovative axle system since its international debut at Bauma in 2013, Goldhofer has extended its product portfolio and now offers »MPA Axle Technology« for all semitrailer types, low loaders and dropdecks. The first STZ-MPA dropdeck was unveiled at the company’s Innovation Days held in Memmingen at the end of June, and at the IAA in Hanover, Goldhofer will be focussing on the availability of the innovative »MPA Axle Technology« with its complete modular semitrailer offering.

“Our customers’ overwhelming response shows that, with this extremely low-maintenance axle system, we have developed the innovation the market has been waiting for,” says Stefan Fuchs, CEO at Goldhofer. He is convinced that the “superiority of »MPA Axle Technology«” brings significant added value in comparison with other axle systems. “That is something we will underscore at the IAA with the presentation of the MPA-K 7 (2+5) semitrailer combination and the new features that go with it,” Stefan Fuchs adds.

The new modular MPA system includes the appropriate loading decks and bogies with up to eight axles. Goldhofer has also developed a new gooseneck and front bogies with one, two or three axles. They can be employed in both platform and drop deck combinations. “The modular system means that customers can quickly configure exactly the MPA semitrailer they require to handle their haulage contracts as economically as possible,” says the CEO.
