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.

"We are using multiple functions in Solid Edge. To show our investors what EMTW can do and what further development we are planning, we create renderings and animations. We also use simulation to learn how the vehicle reacts while under pressure, higher speed, road bumps or tilts."

"I am very happy with Solid Edge. It is a very complete solution for product development", says Oscar Jonasson. "I am an experienced CAD user, but had never worked in Solid Edge earlier. It was very comprehensible and easy to get started with."
