The operational procedure of a conventional dump truck is very inefficient. The consequence of the permanent dwell time is a massive loss of time. It would be desirable to have an efficient flow of work, without dwell times. The idea of this dump truck equipped with a mold changing technology, which is full self-reliant works completely independently, is based on these difficulties.
Building the 1:8 model took about four weeks. It is based on a detailed CAD-model, which was the base for the rapid prototyping.
