TII GROUP

– MORE THAN THE SUM OF ITS PARTS

"I acquired SCHEUERLE,

NICOLAS, KAMAG

and TII India due to my

fascination with technical

innovation.”

Senator E. h. Otto Rettenmaier,

multi-entrepreneur and

founder of the TII Group

The TII Group (Transporter Industry International

GmbH) combines many years of experience and

know-how of four world-leading heavy haulage

specialists: SCHEUERLE Fahrzeugfabrik GmbH in

Pfedelbach (Germany), NICOLAS Industrie SAS in

Champs-sur-Yonne (France) and KAMAG Transporttechnik

GmbH & Co. KG in Ulm (Germany).

Since 2015, TII India in New Delhi (India) has been

part of the Group and offers locally-made vehicles

for heavy-duty transport assignments in India,

Africa and Southeast Asia.

SCHEUERLE, NICOLAS, KAMAG and TII India

belong to the group of companies owned by

Heilbronn-based multi-entrepreneur Senator

E. h. Otto Rettenmaier. The award-winning businessman

– including the Federal Cross of Merit First

Class of the Federal Republic of Germany – has numerous

industrial holdings and real estate investments

in his extensive portfolio. The purchase of

SCHEUERLE Fahrzeugfabrik in 1988 and NICOLAS

in 1995 was followed by the founding of Transporter

Industry International GmbH as a holding company

for the production of heavy-duty transporters. The

acquisition of KAMAG Transporttechnik in 2004 and

the founding of TII India, which manufactures vehicles

under the brand name TIIGER, continuously

expanded the Group.

The globally operating Group stands for state-ofthe-art

technology, highest product quality and a

total of around 400 years of expertise in the production

of heavy-duty transporters. SCHEUERLE

was the first company to successfully integrate the

hydraulically suspended axle installed one after

the other over the length of several axle lines - the

birth of modern heavy-haulage transport. Today,

the TII Group sets international standards in many

industrial sectors and regularly sets new world

records, most recently transporting more than

17,200 tonnes. TII Group transporters move entire

manufacturing plants, ships or submarines, oil rigs

and other offshore platforms, molten slag, wind

power plants or radio telescopes, and transport

loads in the most remote and highest areas of the

world. Extremely manoeuvrable, hydrostaticallydriven

vehicles that fulfil the respective logistical

requirements in very tight spaces, such as in

tunnels, underground or in logistics centres, are

also part of the production programme. With its

innovative developments, the TII Group effectively

solves those problems found in the most challenging

of logistical operations.

Highly qualified engineers constantly face new

challenges. With creativity and ingenuity they realise

customer requirements. The Group's heavy-duty

transport vehicles are very reliable and proven in

daily use whilst being designed to accommodate

the highest of loads. They stand out due to a long

service life. The efficient integration of the companies

within the Group has created multiple synergetic

effects that offer customers a high degree

of flexibility and benefits. Centres of excellence

for a wide range applications at the TII Group's

production facilities ensure on-going industryspecific

further developments of the company´s

transport solutions.

By bundling all the available experience and expertise,

the TII Group is more than the sum of the

individual companies that it unites it under one

roof. The Group has created added value for its

customers which they, in turn, like to capitalise on

for ensuring their own success. As a family-run

business focused on the long-term, the TII Group

stands ready to take you into the future.

“K25“ platform trailer combination with longitudinal and laterally-coupled bogie units

Flexible solutions

Construction machinery, turbines, heavy transformers or oversized

and extremely heavy plant components - heavy-duty transportation

on public roads present difficult challenges for logistic specialists

and heavy-duty forwarding companies on a daily basis. Tight bends,

steep inclines, busy motorways, bridges, underpasses, narrow streets

in towns and cities must be negotiated, and compensating ground

unevenness among other things. With its flexible vehicle concepts,

the TII Group offers standardised and individual solutions for transport

assignments in order to move loads weighing 50 t to several

thousand tonnes on public roads. For pulled transports using public

roads, very often transport distances involving hundreds or even

thousands of kilometres have to be overcome. Products of the TII

Group make these top logistical performances can be planned with

a high degree of reliability and thus making the entrepreneurial risk

of realising a long-distance transport assignment for the customer

calculable. In advance of a long-distance transport, the respective

national and cross-border homologation requirements must be taken

into consideration regarding the vehicle design and composition of

the combination.

The wide product range of the TII Group includes a series featuring

compact fifth-wheel vehicles that can be registered internationally

as well as various series of modular platform trailers.with different

load-bearing capacities, driving heights and vehicle widths, and

likewise adaptable to suit respective national regulations. In order

to optimise the payload for the technical or approval-related maximum

load-bearing capacity of the axles, the main focus during the

development was placed on creating a lightweight construction whilst

retaining the bending-resistant main beams. The TII Group's road

vehicle solutions are based on the hydraulically supported pendulum

axle which was developed by Scheuerle in 1956, and has revolutionised

the heavy-duty transport sectorsince its market launch. It makes it

possible to evenly distribute the payload over several axles and to

form so-called suspension groups. Uneven ground conditions can

be compensated for up to 650 mm. Thereby, the hydraulic pendulum

axle is particularly gentle on the road. The all-wheel steering with

large steering angles guarantees the best possible manoeuvrability

of heavy transport vehicles.

Transport equipment and accessories

Whether it is wheel loaders or heavy excavators, transformers or huge

industrial boilers, extra-long pre-stressed concrete beams or reactors

for the petroleum industry, the TII Group offers its customers the

right equipment to perfectly match their vehicle fleet through its wide

range of transport vehicles: standard and customised excavator, slab,

frame, hydraulic girder or side girder decks, long material equipment

such as transport swivel bolsters for oversized trailer combinations,

split-module type vehicles for lateral coupling to widen the support

base, patented gooseneck systems with continuous adjustment of

the fifth wheel load, drawbar equipment and much more.

Self-propelled road vehicles

When the traction force of the tractor reaches its limits during heavyduty

transports, then the innovative and highly developed drive systems

of the TII Group provide support. For example, the PowerBooster

technology – an innovation of the TII Group – offers additional drive

capacity if required for negotiating steep inclines. Here, the Power-

Booster is an integral part of the modular platform trailer combination

and supports the tractor (or tractors) with its traction force, which is

automatically activated when needed.

For special operations, the self-propelled platform trailer combinations

(SP and SPE series) and self-propelled modular transporters

(SPMT and K24 series) are used in heavy-duty transportation on

public roads. The drive axles of these platform trailers and modular

transporters are propelled by coupled engine aggregates – so-called

PowerPackUnits (PPU) – with a capacity of up to 1,000 hp.

Innovative concepts for the transportation of

wind power plants

Regardless whether it is off-shore plants in the middle of the sea or

on-shore at very exposed, windy places – the dimensions of wind power

plants are enormous. Extremely long rotor blades, giant nacelles and

tower segments, lattice tower constructions, huge tripods, oversized

monopiles, thousands of tonnes of heavy gravity foundations, machine

houses, hubs or transformers are pre-assembled at many different

locations and then have to be transported from the production sites

to the dockside or to their place of destination on shore.

For the transportation of on and off-shore wind power plants, the

Wind turbine blade transporter with radio controlled

wind blade adapter with lifting and tilting device –

version with lifting angle of up to 70°

Transport of a rotor star


TII Group offers extremely robust, high load-bearing but still very

manoeuvrable vehicle designs with special transport features for

segments of wind power plants. Thereby, extremely long vehicle combinations

as well as flexible units are possible for transportation around

tight bends up to mountain summits or coupled combinations for the

transport of very heavy loads to the dock for loading onto the ship.

A large number of new developments have been realised in close

cooperation with our customers. For example, remote-controlled

wind tower adapters with innovative, weight-optimised and telescopic

adapter technology which easily adjust to accommodate the

respective element.

As a result, wind tower elements and nacelles can be transported

without any problems. A new side loader makes it possible to handle a

tower segment directly at the place of assembly without requiring any

additional mobile crane. The radio-controlled blade adapter can lift a

rotor blade by up to 70 degrees during transportation. In connection

with a slewing device, abutments, trees, buildings and other obstacles

can be circumnavigated. The drive axles of the PowerBooster – an

innovation of the TII Group for modular platform trailer combinations

– which can be additionally switched on and which are propelled by

engine aggregates with a capacity of several hundred horsepower,

support the tractor if required in rough terrain and on steep inclines.

Plant construction and the off-shore industry are repeatedly faced

with new extreme logistical challenges. For industrial installations

such as power stations, off-shore platforms for oil and gas production

and seawater desalination plants, oversized factory modules and plant

components, which weigh up to several thousand tonnes and are often

extremely long, have to be safely and reliably transported to their places

of destination. Year by year, our customers transport new record loads

with self-propelled modular transporters from the TII Group which are

always guaranteed to attract a great deal of international attention. Also

the current world record involving the transportation of a 17,280 tonne

ship was also carried out using SPMTs from the TII Group.

With more than 10,000 axle lines of the SPMT and K24 series – the

“strong ones“ in the TII Group among the modular, self-propelled

heavy duty transporters – the TII Group offers the largest fleet of this

vehicle class in the global market. The SPMT (Self Propelled Modular

Transporter) was designed by SCHEUERLE in 1983 as a special

transport vehicle using amodular construction, and was launched

under this name. Nowadays the name is synonymous for this type

of transport technology. With their design conforming to loadable

container dimensions, it was possible for the very first time to bring

heavy-duty transporters to constantly changing destinations all over

the world in a cost-effective way. Since this time, the SPMT and K24

series have developed from special vehicles to an indispensable

universal transporter on all large construction sites all over the

world. The availability of more than 10,000 axle lines worldwide –

with a calculative total payload that could transport 35 Eiffel Towers

with a dead weight of 10,000 tonnes respectively at once – allows

our customers to rent vehicle modules or find cooperation partners

with compatible vehicles in order to be able to carry out heavy-duty

transports of superlative dimensions. In the process, the coupling of

different generation modules is guaranteed.

The very latest production and development technologies at the TII

Group ensure highest quality, reliability and long service life of the

transportation vehicles. The electronic multi-directional steering,

another pioneering innovation by SCHEUERLE, facilitates transversal,

straight, diagonal, circlular and many other steering programs.

Individual modules can be mechanically coupled to form a large

transport combination or arranged in a loose coupling mode under

the load on an area of 1,000 x 1,000 m. The sophisticated electronics

system ensures the synchronisation of the drive system, steering,

hydraulic lift and other functions for all transporter units integrated

in the vehicle combination, and allows for navigation of the heaviest

loads with millimetre accuracy.

There is never sufficient space on tunnel construction sites whereby

manoeuvring or even turning of vehicles on the soggy and unmachined

surfaces is rarely possible. Nevertheless, the transportation of

heavy goods such as tubbing or machines to the places of use has to

be ensured also under these difficult circumstances. The TII Group

provides professional transportation systems that have been tried

and tested on jobsites for decades and which have been designed

particularly to meet the needs on tunnel construction sites. The stand

out due to their low overall heights combined with optimal loading

capacities. Appropriately-fitted tyres offer the best stability against

overturning even if the centre of gravity of the load is positioned very

high. The systems with their sensitive hydrostatic drive as well as

the same driving speed in both directions allow for precise navigation

in the very restricted available tunnel space and the extremely

important requirement of quickly moving in and out of the tunnel

without having to turn.

Intelligent transportation systems are also needed in bridge construction.

This not only applies to moving individual bridge components

but also the navigation of completely pre-fabricated bridges. In this

respect, the TII Group has revolutionised bridge construction with the

development of the “Girder Carrier” special vehicle - a mobile lifting

system. This lifting system is connected with a self-propelled, electronically

controlled transportation vehicle complete with hydrostatic

drive. When using four individual vehicles, the lifting towers can be

additionally equipped with swivel bolsters. This clearly increases

the manoeuvrability. The transportation systems for tunnel construction

as well as for bridge construction can normally be combined

and coupled to form a loose coupling mode either mechanically or

through the use of data lines. As a result, this makes them extremely

manoeuvrable and they can be navigated extremely accurately

when operating under full load (1,600 tonnes) also in the tightest of

construction site situations.

Transport of megablocks weighing up to 6,000 tonnes on coupled ship section lift transporters

Moving gigantic elements with the utmost precision

Huge sections of tankers, complete submarines, rear sections of

cruise ships, the bow of a freight ship, enormous parts of an icebreaker

– in shipbuilding, giant loads have to be moved around at

theproduction facility and then placed with the utmost precision. This

requires sensitive, manoeuvrable special vehicles which take on the

handling and transportation of the extremely heavy loads during the

production process. The TII Group has decades-long experience in

the development and manufacturing of transportation systems for

the shipyard industry. With the development of the ship section lift

transporter technology, the Group has revolutionised the in-plant

transportation of ship sections and set the global standard in shipyard

logistics. On individual vehicles with loading areas of up to 200

square metres and more, ship sections weighing 1,000 tonnes can be

moved with the extremely high load-bearing and accurately steered

high-tech vehicles. Through the combination of several ship section

lift transporters, it is possible to transport huge mega blocks weighing

several thousands of tonnes. The sophisticated pendulum axle

technology with axle compensation of up to 700 millimetres, ensures

a balanced load on all tyres also when moving on uneven terrain.

With the self-propelled modular transporters complete with hydrostatic

drive and electronic multi-directional steering, the TII Group

offers further flexibly applicable product series for the internal transportation

of ship sections as well as complete vessels. Depending on

the respective requirements, they can be mechanically coupled to

form a large transportation combination or they can be arranged in

a loose coupling mode under the load by means of data lines.

Extreme working conditions are a feature of the steel industry. Hot

slag with temperatures up to 1,300 degrees, molten steel, angular

and dusty bulk materials, metre-long and extremely heavy red-hot

steel slabs or coils provide a difficult challenge for workers and

machines alike. In addition, the vehicles for in-plant logistics have

to work reliably and safely under these extreme conditions and, at

the same time, have to be cost-effective.

The TII Group has developed transportation systems for meeting

logistics requirements in the metallurgy sector which can expertly

handle the extreme heat, dirt and heavy loads. As a full-range supplier,

the Group provides vehicles for operations in the production

process in steelworks which can reliably deal with all transportation

tasks along the value chain. Here, the product range ranges from

ladle carriers for molten steel with payloads of over 500 tonnes

and slag pot carriers with payloads up to 150 tonnes through to

slab transporters, industry transporters, scrap basket transporters,

U-frame trucks and articulated vehicles, compact coil transporters

with cover protection against all types of weather as well as heavy

load trailers with electronic steering and automatic positioning aid

for driving under pallets.

Safe and reliable under extreme conditions

Modern mining and the mining industry have experienced tremendous

technological changes. Where only a few decades ago trolleys and

human labour were relied on to get the job done, today huge amounts

of earth and rock are moved by machines specially designed for this

purpose. The logistical challenges are, on the one hand, to efficiently

transport the excavated materials for further processing and, on

the other, transporting the large, often difficult-to-move stripping

machines to their places of operation

The TII Group can look back on decades-long experience in the mining

sector. Today, the Group has a wide range of vehicles and modules for

the transportation of giant excavators, earth movers, surface mining

machines and conveying systems in the most remote mining areas

in the world. The product portfolio ranges from electronically controlled,

self-propelled units and manouvrable lifting transporters and

mega modules through to U-frames and special vehicles. The most

powerful tractor worldwide approved for road use, the Tractomas

with more than 1,000 hp, has established itself in the large mining

regions of the world for towing raw material trailers in convoys –

so-called road trains – involving total combination weights of up to

550 tonnes at speeds of up to 80 km/h on unpaved roads or on up to

8-degree gradients from the pit. Also for transportation underground,

flexibly used transport systems including the unmanned versions –

so-called AGVs (Automatic Guided Vehicles) - perform a wide range

of tasks. The TII Group’s mining portfolio is characterized by its high

level of robustness and very long service life. Whether it is working

in temperatures of -40 to +50 degrees Centigrade or difficult, highly

corrosive environments – the transport systems of the Group operate

reliably and safely also under extreme conditions.

Growth rates in road haulage are clearly increasing particularly in

the areas of combined rail/road traffic and swap body logistics. This

has led to an increasing demand for special solutions regarding

internal transportation proceedures in logistics centres, forwarders

yards, freight and parcel centres. Wherever a large number of swap

bodies, trailers and semi-trailers have to be shunted, repositioned

and towed, this means that cost-effective solutions for fast and safe

moving operations are required. The "Wiesel" product range which

has been developed by KAMAG – a TII Group company – optimally

fulfills these requirements.

Thus, customers can universally use the swap body transporter of

the TII Group at their respective logistics centre as the “Wiesel” can

accommodate all standard swap bodies due to the standard parking

height of only 950 mm along with the jumbo swap bodies, as the highvolume

swap bodies are called in the industry. Additionally equipped

with fifth-wheel couplings for drawbar trailers and low-coupled centre

axle trailers or with a fifth wheel coupling, all yard movements in a

terminal are possible with only one machine. Highest operational

comfort for the driver is guaranteed. Using only one step facilitates

easy entry to the low-positioned driver’s cab. By means of a joystick,

the driver can operate all functions such as forward movement and

reversing, lifting and lowering of the lifting frame, automatic locking

of the swap body and is thus able to safely and quickly move swap

bodies, trailers and semi-trailers. The “TruckWiesel”, the terminal

tractor from the TII Group, is equipped with the same joystick operation

which was specially developed for moving semi-trailers. Once again,

fast, safe, universal and thus cost-effective use for the customer is

of primary importance.

All semi-trailers, such as container chassis, box body semi-trailers,

curtainsiders as well as 1 to 3-axle semi-trailers, are safely picked

up, moved and set down by the “TruckWiesel“. Moreover, because fast

moving operations means economic efficiency in terminal logistics,

the fifth-wheel plate can be raised to 1,600 mm thus eliminating the

need to crank the support feet during the moving procedure.

Both the “Wiesel“ and “TruckWiesel“ are used by all major logistics

companies, freight hauliers, parcel services and postal operators in

all European countries.

Thin air at an altitude of 5,000 metres, hundreds of kilometres of

dusty desert, freezing cold in the endless expanses of Siberia, weights

that are beyond human understanding and gigantic dimensions that

take your breath away – when the challenges for logistical solutions

seem extreme or even impossible, the engineers and technicians of

the TII Group set everything in motion for its customers. In doing so,

they have the very latest development tools at their disposal. Topographical

situations are also taken into consideration such as the

local climatic conditions or the requirements placed on the system

performance as well as the stress and demands on the materials

used. This results in innovative special-purpose vehicles which are

developed in close cooperation with the customers and which have

been exactly adapted to meet their specific requirements. Time and

time again this leads to completely new technical solutions that enhance

the product range of TII Group and which also find their way

into standard solutions. These developments often have the potential

of opening up completely new markets.

For example, for the transportation of offshore cable reels with diameters

of 7 to 14 metres, a 17-metre high and 11-metre wide cable

reel transporter with a payload of 500 tonnes was designed. Railway

vehicle transporters complete with multi-directional steering move

entire train units in the production facilities. Innovative low-bed trailer

technology with and without additional drive for extreme operations

has been developed for the military sector. A number of Tractomas

tractors are operating in what is the world‘s largest coupling mode

with platform trailers and side girder decks to transport transformers.

Unmanned transportation systems (Automatic Guided Vehicles) that

the TII Group originally designed for harbour logistics are also used

today as in-plant transportation systems in the glass industry and

other sectors. The TII Group frequently sets new global standards

with its heavy-duty transportation vehicles and regularly establishes

new world records.

In order to be able to offer its customers the complete

innovative strength of the TII companies, SCHEU-

ERLE, NICOLAS, KAMAG and TII India have bundled

the customer services for all markets and locations

in a joint sales organisation, the TII Sales GmbH

& Co. KG. With a wide network of representatives

and own sales locations, TII Sales has the required

global presence. This guarantees a comprehensive

consultation service for customers on the spot,

right from the start.

– EXPERTISE RIGHT FROM THE START!

58

Our sales team satisfy the individual requests of

the customers. Whether it is a new customer interested

in a single vehicle or preparing an offer at

short notice of standardised vehicle components to

complement an already existing fleet, together with

SCHEUERLE, NICOLAS, KAMAG and TII India, TII

Sales offers the expertise and know-how in order

to fulfil customer requests. This is also true for the

complete conversion of an existing vehicle fleet

or finding the solution to individual transportation

problems. With the help of the extensive company

database, the specific requirements can be quickly

identified and discussed with the customer thus

resulting in a fast offer. It is, for example, an integral

element when advising customers to always look

for possibilities of combining existing vehicles with

new purchases.

One very essential core competence of the TII Group

is to develop individual customer solutions for special

heavy-duty transport problems: already during

the first meeting with customers, the specialists

and experts from the individual companies begin

to create customised transportation solutions in

close cooperation with TII Sales. As early as the

preparation phase, numerous questions concerning

a particular transport have to be resolved. The engineers

and technicians at the TII Group have the very

latest tools at their disposal such as the transport

simulation programme SALSA Plus which was

developed in-house: processes and situations can

be simulated with millimetre-precision. The highly

experienced engineers of the Group know the effects

of a particular environment on the systems and

drives of the transportation modules and vehicles,

and how they would have to be modified according

to the local situation, or even undergo fundamental

modification. This knowledge is invaluable for

the customer. TII Group project engineers create

application-specific solutions in close cooperation

with the developers and technical designers. Here,

they make use of the know-how of key suppliers. In

close collaboration with customers, the respective

requirements are to begin with determined down

to the last detail and then analysed in technical

discussions with the customer. Then, the type of

modifications that need to be carried out on existing

models are checked or what a new development

would have to be in order to fulfil the customerspecific

requirements.

Also during order processing, the customer is continuously

supported by the sales department and to

ensure that the individual contractual agreements

are implemented. This means, for example, that test

runs are included in the order for customised transportation

solutions. Briefings regarding the handling

of new vehicles as well as maintenance operations

are also elements of the order processing. After

acceptance by the customer, the transporters are

delivered as requested and are commissioned on

site. TII Sales supports the customers through all

these steps from the offer phase through to project

implementation and delivery.

Staff members of the sales organisation are frequently

away on business around the world. They

have extensive knowledge of the industry and have

a skilled eye for individual solutions. For this, they

use the very latest sales tools and thus safeguard

the expert implementation of customer requests

right from the very beginning.
