I can just hear the executive conversation when reviewing the original dump cart designs. They probably realized that there was potential for the dump cart to tilt far enough to possibly contact the ground and create a pinch point. The simple solution is to drop the functionality of the dump portion of the trailer and just have trailer but keep the dump trailer price tag.
Well, you just experienced the normal process of fixing a bad design to fit your application. However you may never be able to bring it to life as a viable product because some clerk feels that longer base is too dangerous or some other stupid reason.
There are thousands of modifications to products that never see the light of day due to poor regulations.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
