3. What is a flatbed semi trailer?

Definition: Panda flatbed semi-trailer is a semi-trailer often used to transport containers and bulk cargo between terminals and shipping facilities. Flatbed semi trailer’s platform is generally 20ft 40ft 45ft 48ft and 53ft, among which the most used are 20ft, and 40ft container transport, their main applications include ships, ports, waterways, highways, transit stations, bridges, tunnels, multimodal transportation, etc.

The flatbed trailer is known as a flatbed truck. A flatbed truck trailer is a semi-trailer with a container structure.

The bottom of each container will have four corners corresponding to the position, with a twist-lock device to fix the container to ensure that the transport over the car will not be dangerous. The flatbed semi-trailer and skeleton car is a special semi-trailer for container transport.

Its load capacity ranges from 30 tons to 80 tons, and the trailer can determine the length according to the specific use requirements of our customers. And currently, 40 feet is the most widely used.

3.1 Different types of flatbed semi trucks

Several other flatbed semi trucks include the pull-out flatbed with front baffle, the interlink flatbed semi trailer, and his container tipper.

Sometimes, you will face two difficulties in the process of transportation when flatbed trucks are used to transport steel pipes, steel bars, woods in long strips, and other goods.

1. These bulk goods are not easy to be stacked on the trailer, and if they are not fixed well, it is easy for the goods to fall off the truck because of bumps during transportation.

2. It is hazardous when the sudden brake during transportation will cause these goods to rush forward. In this case, you can choose a flatbed truck with a front baffle and plug-in instrumentation, while the rugged rubber attached to the side of the plug-in instrumentation can prevent the friction and impact of steel products on this instrumentation.

And these are removable so that you can meet the needs of transporting different products. If you need to transport some bulk/bagged goods, such as bagged cement, bagged grain, etc., you need to use ropes to fix these.

4. When is the Panda Mech flatbed semi trailer used?

The flatbed semi trailer is a kind of transportation equipment, which is mainly composed of steel structure of frame, and it is also divided into the lighting system, braking system, and walking system in terms of approach.

The flatbed tractor-trailer is carefully designed, its height and weighing capacity can safely transport the cargo from one place to another, load the cargo onto the container flatbed trailer and transport it to the destination, and if it is necessary to change the semi-trailer or ship or other means of transport in the middle, we do not need to take the cargo out of the container.

5. Operation method of panda flatbed semi trailer transporting

Before loading the container into the container flatbed trailer, we should talk about the use of all the giant head and lock seats to overlap and fix completely, and then put the container on the flatbed semi trailer correctly, and then turn to the locking handle, using the lock and lock seat to improve the container to him. When we are unloading the container, we should turn the lock to the place where the safety is overlapped and then fix it to make sure the container is unlocked before unloading the container.

4. Flatbed semi trailer main beam characteristics

The essential component of a flatbed semi trailer is the main beam. The main beam is good or bad, seriously affects the service life of a flatbed semi trailer. Generally, the main shaft is determined by steel. In the following, we will look at the different points’ ordinary manganese steel and high-strength steel mechanical properties.

Manganese steel: manganese steel compared to high-strength steel, its toughness is better if we load and transport heavy cargo, generally after the completion of unloading, basically can be restored to its original state, of course, if it is more than the limit of manganese steel, he will also appear deformation, but from the feedback of customers for flatbed semi trailer, so far, never found a direct collapse of manganese steel beam situation.

The yield strength of manganese steel: the yield strength of manganese steel is the yield limit of the metal material when it yields, which is the win of resisting slight plastic deformation, if it is greater than the force of the limit, it will lead to the permanent failure of the part and cannot be recovered. As an example, the low carbon steel yield limit is 207MPa. If the external force exceeds this limit, it will permanently deform the part. If it is less than this limit when this external force is taken away, the function can be restored to its original state.

Elongation: Elongation refers to the lengthening of the seal material hardened body under tension as a percentage of the original length is how much. The elastic recovery rate refers to the portion of the seal material hardened body deformation that can be fully recovered in Chengdu. Generally speaking, when the elongation is more excellent, the elastic recovery is more remarkable and the better the adaptability of the seal material to deformation.

High strength steel: High strength steel can be seen from the name, its most important feature is high strength. His strength is twice as strong as manganese steel and three times as strong as ordinary steel.

The frame generated by high strength steel generally uses less material. Its upper wing, lower wing, and vertical plate can be made thinner and lighter, and the advantages of using high strength steel are more evident in the case of weight charge and standard loading.

20ft 40ft truck trailer flatbed can generally be directly used high-strength steel. It is more suitable for transporting road is better. High-speed standard light dumping cargo, generally for mountainous areas, overload, and bad roads, is not recommended to use high-strength steel.

5. Main components

Main pin:

The general diameter of the central pin is 90mm. The material is mostly chrome alloy, tractor, and commercial flatbed trailer connected by the central buckle. He is linked to the main vehicle traction seat while bearing all his traction, flatbed semi trailer.

At present, there are four kinds of traction pins in the market now, which are assembly 50, assembly 90, welding 50, welding 90. According to your use scenario and different transportation goods, we recommend the most suitable one for you.


The outrigger is the support device of the flatbed maxi trailer. His principle is “standing timber jacking” his position is located in the more forward part of the flatbed semi trailer, mainly used when the flatbed semi trailer and tractor are separated.


The legs can be divided into the single-action crankshaft and linkage crankshaft, single-action crankshaft means that we can only raise or lower one leg at a time; linkage crankshaft is that we can operate two legs at the same time, the legs are mainly composed of the following parts: second gear gearbox, support sleeve, support rod, drive screw, support plate, although his structure is relatively simple, his role is very important.

Brake system:

Brake is a round metal container, and his position is on each wheel. His principle is to stop the vehicle by compressing the air and converting it into mechanical force, which is applied to will brake.

6. Characteristics

  • (1) Sophisticated technology: the main parts of the trailer are processed by advanced equipment, the longeron is welded by the automatic tracking submerged arc welding machine imported from the United States; the trailer parts are shot blasted, which dramatically enhances the adhesion of paint, and the assembly parts are assembled after the painting process.
  • (2) Frame: The frame adopts a 16Mn steel plate and high-strength steel plate with welded longeron and integral crossbeam welded into a spatial frame structure. With a sound system, the trailer has a more substantial carrying capacity.
  • (3) Axle: The axle adopts imported or domestic high-quality brand axle and optional ABS anti-lock braking system from famous brands at home and abroad to improve driving safety.
  • fuwa-axles
  • (4) Suspension system: Adopting a unique new type suspension system with high strength and strong impact resistance; the patented tie rod fixing structure ensures that it will not loosen during the frequent bumps in operation, effectively reducing tire wear extending its service life.
  • (5) Toolbox: waterproof, large volume detachable.
  • tool-box
  • (6) Frame: The longeron is made of hot-rolled section steel or welded manganese steel and is fused with the crossbeam and section steel members to form a frame structure. It will never deform with reasonable structure, balanced overall strength and stiffness, high carrying capacity, and good elasticity.
  • (7) Carriage board: Welded by an anisotropic steel frame, tile-ribbed compartment board, and steel plate molded column with an excellent manufacturing process and reasonable structure.
  • (8) Braking system: Adopting safe and reliable double-loop air-break brake and installing a quick-release valve in the system, the sub-pump can be used to return quickly when you are braking.

7. Tractor and semi flatbed trailer links

1. Longest flatbed trailer’s cochineal height, traction pin size, front turning radius, headroom radius all of these must match each other with the tractor, this place, we need to buy flatbed semi trailer when we first tell the sales staff to ensure that we believe, there is no problem, and we also have to connect before Checking.

2. We need to check the saddle of the tractor, and the traction pin of the semi-trailer when we connect the tractor and shipping container flatbed trailer, whether there is sand or other objects inside. If there is, they all need to be cleaned out, and there must be enough grease to put in use.

3. gas connection: we will tractor on the two gas tank joints and flatbed semi trailers two gas pipe joints to him docking, at this time the tractor gas supply pipeline and lorry flatbed trailer pipeline connected, gas link good, we need to unscrew the tractor, custom flatbed semi trailers. After the airline is linked, we need to unscrew the tractor’s airline switch to disconnect him so that the tractor’s airline can be ventilated with the flatbed container truck’s airline. Otherwise, it will lead to the flatbed semi trailer’s brake system can not supply air, the brake system is unable to work.

4. Circuit connection: after connecting the air line, we need to click the circuit, insert the cable connection plug of the tractor into the cable connection socket of the front of the flatbed shipping container, then check whether the electrode is suitable, confirm that it works properly, etc. If necessary, replace the electrode wiring.

5. Then, we need to start the engine and observe the Kia change in the cab generally, we see the pressure is 650-750Kpa on it.
