Development history of XCMG bridge inspection vehicle and brief introduction to Korea project
In 1991, China’s first bridge inspection vehicle was successfully developed by XCMG and achieved a zero breakthrough in China, with the boom type. 13 years later in 2004, China’s first trussed bridge inspection vehicle was off the assembly line in XCMG. Once invented, XCMG trussed bridge inspection vehicle was rapidly favored by the domestic market for its high efficiency and stable performance and cost performance far better than that of imported products.
After more than 20 years of technological accumulation and market development, XCMG, as the first unit and leader in the industry of bridge inspection vehicle in China, has owned the only domestic production line of bridge inspection vehicle with a capacity of 100 sets per year and presided over the development of the first product industry standard of China--QC/T826-2010 Bridge Inspection Vehicle.
With nearly 30 years of experience in the construction, sale, and leasing of bridge inspection vehicles, the Korean Bridge Inspection Company is a leader in the industry of bridge inspection vehicle in South Korea.
The South Korean market is a medium and high-end market that XCMG has always attached great importance to. The South Korean regulations impose stringent requirements on the outer dimensions and axle load of the products. Therefore, higher technical requirements are placed on XCMG bridge inspection vehicles. The technicians personally rushed to South Korea to conduct first-line investigation of the project to obtain first-hand information on the layout of the vehicle, distribution of axle load, lightweight design of the structure, design of details and user-friendly functions and repeatedly communicated with Korean customers to constantly adjust and improve technical solutions, so as to properly solve the problem that the height, width, and total weight of China’s bridge inspection vehicles have been slightly higher than the regulatory limit, which has won high praise from Korean customers.
