Vehicle designed in Solid Edge will make road work safer
The Environmental Multi Terrain Wheeler, abbreviated EMTW, is designed by NEXTAGE’s customer EMTW Production AB and MMD Sweden AB using Solid Edge Premium.
The development of EMTW was initiated after a research project discovered that there is a demand for safer and more efficient road machines.
EMTW can climb over road rails and keep the driver sitting horizontally even when the chassi has a 20 degree lateral tilt. Thanks to its design, it can work alongside crowded roads and railways with maintenance and rescue work while keeping its drivers safe. In addition, it can carry a variety of tools for a number of purposes.
Today, EMTW Production AB is in an exciting phase of building a pre-series of the machine. To interest additional investors and show the potential of the vehicle, their design engineer has created renderings in Solid Edge that show what EMTW would be capable of as a maintenance, rescue and firefighting vehicle.
Oscar Jonasson, Design Engineer at EMTW, explains how he benefits from Solid Edge when designing the vehicle.
